The room was superbly - very comfortable with amazing view over the golf course. The bathroom was first class with lovely fittings and perfectly clean. We spent a long time I the spa area - the pool, steam room and aroma room were really good - everywhere was lovely and clean. There is a really good service around the pool and we had an amazing cream tea which was really lovely - hot scones fresh clotted cream and a large selection of jams. The breakfast selection was very good with the opportunity to select special dishes for a small extra charge but the standard breakfast comprised of fruit, healthy smoothies, fish, seeds, cereals and the usual full English. The service was very good and the staff extremely welcoming, We will definitely return and probably for longer next time.

Overlooking an 18-hole golf course, this AA Hotel of the Year (2007/2008) has brand new, air-conditioned rooms, suites and a …More
stayed there previously when able to sit in conservatory and watch the wildlife outside.This has now been made into a very narrow restaurant and is not very comfortable .The food was over priced and very average for the price.We ate out on the second night.Ludo the maitre de was at least pleasant on this visit whilst in the past he has been condescending and quite rude.The changes made have ,in our opinion ,made the hotel less appealing.
It’s the second time we have stayed at the hotel and the staff are really friendly which made our stay really pleasant. We had a few dogs which were allowed to stay in our room and they are also allowed in the bar area. There is a really nice garden area where you can have drinks outside. The restaurant had lovely food and all the staff were really friendly and helpful. We will be booking again for next year.
using the local horse racing industry as a theme for each room, and the addition of horse-based accessories was a great idea. It made another night away from home into a quirky and original stop over ... well done!
Newbury is situated approximately 39 km west of Reading. Vodafone has its headquarters here, and the Newbury Racecourse hosts numerous horse racing events throughout the year. Donnington Castle, a mediaeval relic once owned by Geoffrey Chaucer’s son, is located north of Newbury.
