"Nice hotel in Windsor & bus journey from Legoland"
Excellent location. Loved the hotel & loved Windsor. Also buses to Legoland left outside hotel and journey was just 10-15 mins. We had the best of both worlds. Legoland by day & Windsor by night. Hotel staff very friendly & couldn't have been more helpful.
"Close Reading football stadium. Taxi into town £8."
It was very busy Saturday. The restaurant was full. The staff served 9 of us at the bar tables. The food was hot and good. We were all served together.
I was a bit surprised the fridge was empty in the room. But there was tea making. Facilities .
The bed was not that comfortable. The room was very quiet.
I would stay again.
We had a fantastic stay at the Royal Berkshire hotel. We stayed on a Friday/Saturday night, with the intention of heading to the Ascot races on the Saturday. Check in went very smoothly on the Friday night, and the room was fantastic, with a lovely view.
On the Saturday, we noticed a lot of people trying to check in at 11am, obviously hoping to get into the hotel, changed, and out for the first race (at 12:40pm on Saturday). But check in time was listed at 2pm, and although I'm sure the hotel would have done all they could do to accommodate early attendees, if you are hoping to attend a jumps meeting with an early start, I recommend checking in the day before.
We returned from the racing Saturday night and had dinner in the Fork restaurant which was exceptional. Special mention for the steak main course, and the Fairground dessert (we didn't have it, but it looked spectacular). My girlfriend had the "Jelly" dessert, which again, looked amazing, and according to her it tasted superb.
The staff were also able to conform with a special request we had for the Sunday when we were leaving. Any time we went to the bar in the hotel we were impressed, with the staff there extremely helpful and chatty.
The only (minor) downpoint, was the lack of air con in the room, and I don't think it would have been a problem, were it not for the unseasonably warm Halloween we've had! All in all though, it was a superb hotel, and well worth spending the money on
