Great location but lack of curtains in the bedroom and noise made it difficult to sleep.

Hard pass, sorry Newbury!
This is my first time being truly disappointed by Hotels.com reviews which I always use to make my booking decisions. My room was threadbare and in need of TLC. One thing I must have while traveling is a dark room to sleep. My room had the cheapest blinds that blocked no light and sheer curtains that did nothing. I had to have a cold shower at 6am because there was no hot water. The fixtures in the bathroom were rusty and showed their age. The ceiling and walls were also all patched up with bad plastering jobs. The paint job was in need of serious touching up. The staff were friendly, the location is great but my colleagues were staying in fantastic hotels nearby, paying basically the same as me ... So overall I was very frustrated.

Comfortable, cosy and characterful stay
Lovely, characterful hotel. Rooms extremely cosy (as in comfortable - not tiny!) Fantastic part of the city, tons of shops, restaurants and transit just steps away. Bathroom was a bit small and dated, but clean and functional.
