    Pleasant stay

    The hotel overall is very nice. The garden is beautiful and very relaxing. Staff is very friendly. The shower in the room was an exercise. Any one over 5.7 will struggle. There is a box where the head would normally be so we both had to twist and turn to get washed.

    Lovely Newbury hotel

    We stayed here to check out what it is like as our son is getting married here next year. Staff were very friendly. The food was lovely and the room was very clean. There were steps going into the room and the bathroom so mention mobility needs when booking rooms. I have no doubt they have plenty of step free rooms. Some are outside - motel style. There is a small garden area which has just been landscaped on four levels. It looks very attractive.
