Character and close to amenities.

Pros: Character and price
Cons: Ooh... if only they had a lift!
Location: Right in the town centre, with all the shops you need.
Helpful and friendly staff. Only had a light staff but they did their best. If we need to come to Newbury again, we would stay here. Overall, nice hotel.

Good for overnight stay in Newbury

This hotel is slightly rustic but has nice charm and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I've stayed here twice and find it very amenable, it has a bit more about it than the travel lodge plus the parking is free and it's ideally situated in town.

Good location in centre of Newbury, free parking!

I stayed 1 night as I had a function to attend and I don't live locally. The booking was straight-forward, reception staff friendly and informative, room a little dated but clean and with TV/ironing board/soap etc. The room was very warm at first but had cooled down later in the evening. Bed was comfortable. Location is right in town which is perfect for coffee/breakfast/shopping next day. I would definitely stay here again for a night or two.

The bedrooms and bathrooms need updating. The bed was very comfortable. The Belfast was excellent and full of flavour.
