The hotel is situated at the end of a small lane off the A4 a few miles outside Newbury. Reception is in the original house as is the restaurant. Our room was on the ground floor was spacious with a separate bathroom and lobby area. The hotel was clean and pleasant and well situated for exploring the area. Breakfast is not included and the restaurant seemed expensive for the quality of food. Fortunately there are good alternatives in the area.

I can't wait to go back next year.
