(Stayed 20 Sept 2014)
Hotel choosen due to proximity to the venue we were attending, it's close to the rail station, in the town centre, easy too find...reception was spot on, nothing was a problem, room was beyond what I thought, modern, well thought out, clean...just what we needed, you cannot fault this cheap, modern well placed hotel.
Been here two times and i would still recommend this hotel. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable, the king size bed a plus. Great place to relax, enjoy a good service, great food and a fantastic bar/lounge for the evening time.
I will definitely return.
We stayed for one night. Enjoyed the experience and we ate in the restaurant for our evening meal. We were well looked after from the minute we arrived till the time we left. Staff were friendly and most helpful......particularly when we were given help to take our luggage to our room.
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
We enjoyed this hotel, the staff are very friendly and because of that we booked another night. The food was very nice and well presented.
Special thanks to Martin (restaurant) and Rachael (reception).
