Reviewed 26 September 2012

My wife and I stayed here last week. I had braced her for a 'business hotel' but we were both very pleasantly surprised - it's better than that. The receptionists were friendly and helpful. The staff said hello to us whenever we passed them; the rooms and bathrooms were of a good size and spotless, and the bed linen was crisp and inviting. We ate in the restaurant and couldn't fault the food for quality or value. The wine list was exceptional value. We didn't use the spa. If I had to find fault I would say that this hotel is no better at making edible scrambled egg for breakfast than any other I have stayed in but that is the limit of my negativity. It really was excellent.

This is a very clean hotel, well presented and comfortable hotel. The rooms are well appointed and reasonable size, although some on the 3rd floor have headroom limitations. The bathrooms are a bit dated but clean and well presented. All the staff we met were pleasant and helpful. At breakfast the waitress even poured out our teas from the pot! Will stay again if in the area. Didn't try the Spa so can't comment. The restaurant menu looked good and reasonable value but unfortunately we were too late to get a table.

A mixed bag awaits you and they have offers for a good reason as they need to attract customers in a competitive market, they dont score highly in all areas. Good things to report are:
Food, excellent and completely superior to anything else on offer here Score 8/10.
Spa - swimming pool is uninviting, 6 loungers to go around!! Staff at Spa reception need a lesson in customer service. No gowns available or on offer unless you book a spa treatment - so no comfort or slippers in your room, no lounging about and the pool looks out over the huge car park - so take your flip flops. Old fashioned pine lockers, sparse changing rooms . Score 2/10.
Overall average as a business overnight but dont come here expecting a luxurious relaxing Spa - try Donnington Valley.

I am delighted that you wrote such a positive comment about the food, but obviously disappointed to learn that you did not enjoy our health club.Guests are usually very complimentary about facilities.

Modern hotel, comfortabel, quiet and very professionally run. Close to Highclere, Whitchurch (silk mill in alovely setting on the River Test), The Thames Valley, Pangbourne, Moulsford, and only 30 minutes by excellent road to Winchester. Furnishings and service top class, staff kind and attentive, food excellent. If your thinking of visiting places within 50 miles of Thatcham this is a first class base.

Room Tip: Some rooms have walk in showers but they are a little darker than those with shower over bath facili...

Had a fantastic weekend break at the Regency Park Hotel in Newbury in August. The rooms were very comfortable and clean, the receptionists and everyone were very friendly and pleasant and the swimming pool was wonderful. The restaurant was excellent, dinner and breakfast was delicious and plenty to choose from. Would definitely return and probably for a Spa weekend break.

Looking for a hotel to stay that was near to Highclere Castle I came across the Regency Park Hotel and took advantage of their "simply summer" offer.
We received a very warm welcome from the receptionist and were dealt with very efficiently.
What a find - the accomodation was superb, the bedroom was spotlessly clean, had plenty of space, comfortable bed and seating and all the facilities we needed.
We took advantage of the inclusive 3 course dinner in the restaurant and that was faultless. The Restaurant Manager on that evening was most welcoming and obliging. The food was excellent and well presented.
Although only there for one night we really did not want to leave as we had a most enjoyable stay and would certainly come back if we were to stay in the area again.

Thank you to everyone for making our weekend so delightful.

Room Tip: Take advantage of the summer / autumn offers at weekends - upgraded room, 3 course meal and good val...

Really great staff, pleasant, helpful and this is a consistent feature when we have been to the hotel/restaurant. The dinner was very good - especially the tomato and basil soup. I could have gone for a second bowl of that! I'm not a big breakfast eater BUT the breakfast was really delicious, extensive, something for everyone and well cooked. The scrambled eggs were particulary delicious. Great job. If you are in the area, give this a try as it is also in a good location.
