My stay
The room was a little cold and the duvet to heavy. The toilet was cramped and the seat was loose, which could cause a problem The evening meal was over seasoned for me so had to leave most of it. The breakfast was sparse. The location was perfect, however, there was a lot of road noise.

Fabulous Stay & Doggy Friendly!
Staff attentive and friendly, food was lovely, whole place was very clean and tidy, the room we stayed in would benefit from having a fresh coat of paint, other than that we had everything we needed including a coffee machine, nice clean linen & towels & toiletries, even home made biscuits! VERY dog friendly, they get treats, water bowls, dog baskets, even free poo bags!! Hotel is a 10 min walk to Highclere Castle.Our stay was lovely and would definitely stay again & recommend, Thankyou.!
