      A well appointed hotel with a nice dining room with easy access from the A34 via Chieveley or Newbury.

      We booked for two nights but only stayed one. Firstly the resturaunt. The waiter spilled a whole pint of beer over my wife and she had to return to the room to change. We fully undstand that accidents happen and we both laughed it off. Having said that the resuraunt manager did not even appologise. There should have been some small gesture on their part. Maybe a glass of wine to say sorry. Than to add a 10% service charge was a bit much! they however waived this on check out after complaining. We stayed in the Banyan Tree (Spa) room. The room itself is ok but the road noise is incredible and not what you expect from a £165 a night room

      The overall experience was wonderful. We stayed in the Banyan Tree for a birthday treat for my partner. The room was beautiful and stylish - we also loved the home made biscuits and the Nespresso machine! The dinner was lovely - good, tasty ingredients and well put together to maximise flavours. It was a Sunday night and the restaurant was busy - so probably best to book in advance. The full english breakfast was good quality and plentiful. All the members of staff who we met were helpful, professional and charming.

      The food is always an experience whenever we visit. The themed rooms a pleasure to stay in. The staff always friendly and helpful.

      Food was absolutely amazing, worth a visit for its own right purely for the dining experience. Rooms were also very special, however this is trumped by the dining experience, especially if you are into seafood.

      Very friendly and caring staff. Since it's a small hotel, they get to know you and your preferences quickly! Excellent seafood restaurant.

      The room was fantastic, but if you get the one next to the road the noise can be a little iritating - but you do get used to it. We didn't eat in the restaurant, but food smeeled great, we diod tho have the breakfast which was ok (usual fare but hot!) - No brown sauce though anywhere - sausages without brown sauce . . . . .I mean. . . .Whats that about??

      The decor had wow factor, dining was good .

      The grounds around the ornamental pool were sadly neglected and not the ideal spot to relax and enjoy a drink.Although the hotel was notified well in advance of my husbands dietary problem, and were keen to suggest items that were suitable for him, they were not proactive in providing alternative bread which was very disappointing !

      Small intimate hotel which had a very romantic feel. Loved the themed room and hot tub.

      Rooms were on the small side and felt restaurant was a little overpriced.
