Travellers' Choice
The Vineyard has been described as a temple to Californian wine. Just outside Newbury, about an hour from London, it certainly lives up to its reputation, and more. The cellar holds over 30,000 wines from the new and old worlds, as well as the award-winning estate wines of owner Sir Peter Michael. It is also celebrated for its contemporary cooking. Spacious contemporary suites, traditional bedrooms, an award winning spa and a private art collection to die for, make it the ideal venue for special events, weddings, and a delightful retreat for gourmands and the curious alike.

This is a hotel run by Wally's In November 2020 on the hotel web site l booked a two night stay in June this year. The hotel sent me a booking confirmation and reference and also confirmed dinner reservation timings. In early June this year my wife rang to book a treatment in the spa only to be told that there must be a mistake as the hotel is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays and one of the days we booked was a Monday. Who would have thought it that a hotel of this status was still closed two days a week after the relaxations of restrictions. When l asked why their web site had accepted my booking and why it did not say they were closed two days a week they merely said they would have to talk to IT. They did apologise but did not offer any compensation for spoiling what was part of our holiday which we had booked many months before. When were they going to tell us ? If my wife had not rung about the spar we would not have found out until we got there.

The food was excellent. Magnificent roast pork with crackling, Yorkshire pudding etc. Spring pie exceptional and smoked salmon very good as starters. We ordered 2 bottles of wine from the brief under £30 list and they were good - a Chardonnay and a Malbec. But the service was pretty awful, and this was not the fault of the individual waiters who were charming, but rather of the organisation. When we sat down we waited ages and the amuse bouche arrived before we had seen a menu, or a wine list, and we had spent half an hour in the bar previously. The wine waiter arrived before we had seen the menu, and we didn’t see him again. There were long waits between courses. We ordered dessert, informing the waiter that we had a taxi in 15 minutes. The desserts arrived, and sat 2m from us whilst the waitress chased across the restaurant looking for our waiter to serve them - totally unnecessary. There seems a hierarchy of table waiting that means service is inefficient and slow. So sad! We were charged £65 for a bottle of wine we did not have, and refused to pay the mandatory 12.5% service charge. We will try again because of the food, and hope that something is done by the management to train the lovely staff to be more efficient.

I have no issue paying good money for a hotel but if I’m being completely honest the vineyard isn’t at 5* standard at all . The entrance is beautiful with the glass bottom wine cellar but the rest of the hotel is extremely average and needs completely re decorating. Everything from the carpets , wall paper and paint need modernising . The spa is sadly the same you can tell it was nice 10-15 years ago but looking tired and in need of work . There’s no grounds to the hotel at all , the outside dining area has been taken up by a large marquee which Is actually the nicest part of the hotel , it’s been done beautifully but sadly we were unable to eat there as it was fully booked . Food is ok but again nothing to write home about and very over priced . I think if this was a 4* and you paid £150 for a night you would be happy with it but £300 a night just can’t be justified.

Visited yesterday for Sunday lunch with family and have to say the whole experience was wonderful. Lovely wine, lovely food and lovely service. My only slight criticism would be that due to the staff training they had on, it felt a little crowded with staff, but fully understand staff need to train. Thanks for a lovely meal, will definitely return.

My husband surprised me with a getaway to the Vineyards for our 25th Anniversary. He booked it as they had a special offer on due to Covid. The stay was OK and they half a special differ on wine in the restaurant 50% which was a bonus. However we left and they emailed us the bill, not only had they charged us full price for the room but also the wine. They promised us a refund back in September and we have written and spoken to their accounts dept over and over again and she promised to refund us to no avail. I'm actually at my wits end as the it was nearly £300! They are suppose to have a brilliant reputation not in my eyes! Don't stay here unless you want to be ripped off!

Dear A5464IUjacobb, Thank you for leaving your review. I am at a loss to understand your concerns raised. Our hotel has been closed throughout much of the duration you have been mentioned but I have been here throughout and no issue has been raised regarding a refund in this time as I would have personally looked into this. Please could I ask that you forward your correspondence to guestservices@the-vineyard.co.uk to understand you concerns better and I will look into this for you. Best wishes Paul Shanahan General Manager
