Very nice outdoor seating. Staff very friendly & helpful. The room was clean and quite comfortable. Although we stayed only one night, we enjoyed our visit.

6/10 Good

The breakfast was very good but the bathroom was awful, the toilet was in a terrible position, shower cubicle tiny, water flow intermittent! It seems the rooms could really do with an upgrade. Not great value for money really, sorry to say.

6/10 Good

This hotel was okay for one night but there were a few issues. The rooms were quite dark. The showers were awful. The water pressure was really bad in our room - 107 and in my mum’s room the shower was so hot and it wouldn’t cool down - 102. The fire alarm woke us all up at 7am which wasn’t very nice. The evening meal was okay but quite a limited menu. The dessert was very disappointing as we couldn’t eat the crumble as it was unpleasant. I think I have been charged twice for my booking and now have the stress of trying got sort that out. It’s convenient for a trip to Highclere Castle but I wouldn’t stay any longer than one night.

6/10 Good

My partner and I stayed at this hotel so that we could walk to Highclere Castle for a tour booked months ago. The overall hotel is charming, the staff are lovely and the drinks were great. However the room we stayed in was quite dirty. It desperately needs a deep clean (spider webs in corners and on the ceiling, lots of sticky surfaces and lots of dust on the coffee pods and other edibles). The walls are very thin and you can hear the highway beside the hotel at night… while I’m a deep sleeper and this didn’t bother me, it could bother some future guests. The menu in the pub/restaurant is quite limited (if you’re craving fresh veggies and fruits), however everything we ordered was quite delicious. Overall it was a decent stay, the biggest issue I had was the cleanliness of our room.
