I stayed at this place on the 9th of February arrived at 14.30 checking in was easy staff very friendly got to my room 204 opened the door to find a beautiful large room bed very comfortable had a fantastic sleep next morning breakfast was very nice sad to leave but will return when working in that area Thank you staff I left a very happy customer See you again very soon

The staff were all fantastic- really friendly, and made us feel very welcome. Details in reception suggest that a re-fit is due soon, which is definitely needed. Although the room was clean, it was a bit tired and dated. Having said that, the hotel is located in a good spot in the town (very central), and it retains some charming features in the reception areas. The hot breakfast was good (plenty of toast!).

Friendly staff, comfortable rooms, wedding facilities were really good. good food, reasonable price. Convenient for town with off street parking. booking could have been easier. Novel staircase and on a number of different levels.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. The staff were lovely, especially Ana Marie who helped me plan a surprise for my husband. Our room, 221, was great. Quirky, with very creaky floor boards and a dripping tap, but it had such character it was a lovely stay. Very easy to find and having parking was fab! Being right in the centre made it very easy to walk into town. We would definitely stay there again.

One of the best places I'VE been! Food is perfect room was clean, staff friendly and place quite. I had full english breakfast included in the price of the room. We had two beds one for fun and you get what i mean and the other for sleep

Stayed for Newbury Gold Cup one night (Saturday), arrived early so had breakfast before races (added to room bill). 3 of us ordered FEB, but with different choices, when it arrived we all had exactly the same (which none of us had ordered!) and toast never came! Plenty of parking, room was modern & very comfortable. Lots of signs of refurb (due Jan 2018), possibly winding down ready for that, but odd timing with big race meeting & Xmas. Breakfast Sun morning in different room, buffet style - mass row going on in reception over lack of food - some food when I got there, but slightly shambolic to say the least! Staff mainly friendly but the disorganised breakfast took the edge off & maybe not quite worth the rate we paid.

Dark, dingy, desolate. Please avoid. No channel other than BBC 1. Might aswell step back into the 90s. You get what you pay for I guess. Cheap and chee..dreadful. great location, terrible experience. On a plus, decent on-site parking.

A very good spot for town center and ample parking. Reasonable priced and all the things you need in the room for a comfortable stay. Rooms are a little bit slack now but clean . Floors are noisy but in all I would go again

Stayed one night. Room clean and comfortable though bathroom a bit scruffy. Could hear guest in room above moving about which was slightly annoying. Slightly surprised to be asked to pay when I arrived.

Great rooms; brilliantly situated hotel. The staff were great. Dinner was unexpectedly really good. We all ordered different things and everyone was impressed with their choice. Breakfast was a little chaotic on the second morning. Had it been as good as the first day it would have been 5 star.
