This used to be a really upmarket treat of a hotel to go to, but it seems to have lost it's soul. The rooms are still good - large, comfortable and quiet but a few minor points such as shower heads that don't stay in position, fake wood WC seats with peeling laminate, low water pressure etc all lead to...

I visited with a friend on Saturday for one night, and we had a lovely time. The location is great - near the motorway and an easy walk into Newbury itself. We were able to check in early, and our room was acceptable (albeit a little tired looking). We spent the afternoon by the pool and, whilst it was busy...

Arrived New Years Eve and was immediately welcomed by Hotel Reception staff who advised us that we had been upgraded to an Executive Suite. The suite was fabulous. Extremely spacious with added extras. After a swim in the pool we relaxed in the bar before getting ready for the evening. We were welcomed with canapes and a drink (although this...

Got a room on the second floor being send to the opposite direction to take the only lift availlable, with a missing botton for guess what: the second floor! So took the stairs to recognise the...

This is the second time we had visited this hotel and, wow, it has gone down hill. The rooms were good but the rest was very disappointing. We had gone on a package which included a £28 per person towards your meal. My wife and I both had sirloin steaks and my wife who likes hers well done had to...

Booked my daughters 16th afternoon tea and spa afternoon here, 12 of us in total. Reception were very helpful and informative. We were all given keys for the lockers and everyone had a robe, slippers and towels which was an extra special touch. Plenty of sun loungers for everyone to relax by the pool and read a book etc. Pool...

Wow! Really saddened to read some of the previous poor reviews, whilst I recognise that sometimes things just do seem to go wrong, they bear little resemblance to our experience. At the time of booking, promised return telephone calls were made, booking staff very polite as were the reception staff on arrival. Our room, conveniently near the spa, was perfectly...
