A good hotel & decent pub
Stayed at the Berkshire Arms hotel for a 4 night business trip to the area. I had a double room, which was clean and spacious. The bed was a super king size and very comfortable. The room was incredibly hot however, but luckily a fan was provided which was put to good use as the windows only opened an inch or two due to the security cords attached to them. A decent sized modern flat screen TV and kettle were provided in the room. My one let down was the bathroom was tired looking with what appeared to have been accessories removed from the tiled wall but nothing down to repair or cover this up. I was in a 1st floor room and I don’t believe the hotel has a lift. Several meals were had in the restaurant- these were good pub grub quality food, although I personally thought that drinks were expensive at almost £6 for a pint of peroni - maybe I am out of touch. Other than that very happy with my stay and would stay again if I am in that area.

Friendly staff, easy parking, nice room
Nice enough place but staff could be more visible and keep an eye on the door more, I always had to walk around for a few minutes to find anyone at breakfast/evenings to get seated/put an order in, Once found the staff were lovely and service was very quick with great selection of fresh food & drinks, Easy parking, clean room. Slightly concerned I could not lock my room door from the inside, could only use the small chain which can easily be un-done by anyone by just pushing the door open to it's limit, reaching their hand around the door & pushing the chain off the slider rail. Overall it was Ok but I would have liked my door solidly locked at night, seems weird the turn-key lock isn't on both sides. Parking was easy and if you want more space around your car there is an over-flow hotel bit and then the main pub car park too which was empty in the evenings, Big TV in room, wifi was fast enough, very quiet location & tea making facilities in the room as standard. Also the pub doors are open until 11pm but they often cash up at 10:40pm onwards, I understand this is normal but i'd be getting back from work about 10:50pm and had to pleed with them for just 1 pint each night. Staff were lovely & did this for me.
