Stayed here while visiting Berkshire and Hampshire with my family. As there are five of us a hotel that will accommodate my family is difficult to find in the UK, so we stayed here even though it was somewhat out of the way for that reason. Check in was quick, and our suite-style room was large and fully prepared with extra beds and a baby cot when we arrived. Dinner in the hotel was fine as was the included breakfast in the morning. Service was attentive but not overbearing. At 90 GBP for a large room and breakfast in a hotel of this caliber I'd say it was good value. Had we pre-booked, we could have had the room for 79.50. I think there are also package deals with the local attractions but we weren't in the area to see Legoland/Windsor Castle, etc. The beds were also exceedingly soft and I woke up stiff.
The area itself (central Bracknell) was uninspiring. I get the feeling that Bracknell has been hit hard by the recession. There were a few pubs (including a newly rehabbed one) in the area, but lots of the businesses and takeaways had been shuttered, making the hotel restaurant one of the few viable options (it's not cheap, nor is it horribly overpriced). I'd say this hotel is worthy of its 4 star rating, even if the area around it has seen its better days. There appeared to be very few guests in the hotel because of the downturn in the area-- I'd say its a lot like staying at a luxury hotel in Pyonyang, but who am I to say because I've never had that experience.
