Booked the hotel last minute for a one night stay. The room was a nice size but was very dated and not the cleanest. There was dust on every surface, short and curly hairs in the bathroom, the spare bed cover was of an off white colour. The toilet seat was damaged in 3 places, flooring in the bathroom was... More

The Christmas Day meal was really very good and the whole family had a lovely time. I thought the staff were attentive without being overly so and the event was well organised. All the little touches were there to make the meal special and I can't think of one thing I would have asked them to do differently! The Hotel... More

I spent a night here in December 2016, having found it through Booking.com as one of the cheapest rooms in Newbury. Based on that, I wasn't really expecting much more than your standard rooms-over-a-pub kind of thing. In fact, it turned out to be a nicely furnished, clean and homely hotel. The receptionist was friendly and helpful. The room I... More

"On a recent business trip to Newbury I found this place and looking at the map it seemed a good location but it was a bit of a nightmare stay. If you are allocated 301-306 then expect a sleepless night. You hear upstairs, you are disturbed by the automatic security lights in the driveway, Cold and tired rooms. Just to... More

Well situated hotel for the town. Room 104 nice size and very clean. No lift which could cause problems to those less able. Again for those less able the bath is very high....even my husband and I struggled! Only problem was the noise from the road which can't be avoided but would have been nice to be warned. Breakfast was... More

Service was excellent; food mediocre. I had a small salmon and asparagus tart which was rather salty and rather overcooked; gnocchi which was too rich - the stilton was too much, the side vegetables tired and overcooked> For pudding I had a raspberry pannacotta which was nice

I placed most of my crew here for a shoot and they said it was lovely. Situated in the town centre, there is loads of places for them to eat. They have said it can be a little hot and could benefit from aircon though.

The room was lovely and spacious. The shower was ok, nothing special. It was quite a walk to the room, no problem for us as we enjoy the exercise but could be a problem for others less mobile.

Recently refurbished, the restuarant in the Chequers hotel is excellant value for money and the chef is inventive with his bristish menus. The friday evening 3 cours meal with a glass of wine included is to be recommended
