Booked a long weekend deal £139 per night with two treatments free with a friend and both he and I enjoyed our stay. Staff were generally friendly and helpful. Spa facilities were very relaxing to be in - especially the pool, sauna and treatments area. Agree with previous comments that there should be more loungers available and the jacuzzi (which was lovely) be bigger maybe instead of aromatherapy room. Gym was fine and sufficient though resistance machines handles were too chunky in grip. Excellent coffee. Free treatments - massage chair was fun, different and great, the sun aqua treatment was silly and didn't fancy reflexology so would've preferred alternatives. Facial (which I paid for separately) was lovely. Strongly recommend booking treatments in advance as was pretty much booked out all weekend. Hotel room was good enough - modern bathroom, bed was very cosy and warm, Wifi access was helpful to have but surprised that TV was analogue and with very limited channel options. Robes provided needs to be softer and more towel than the almost see through ones given. Breakfast was nice and generous but bar dinner was disappointing and poor. Not much to see in Newbury itself but nice walk to castle near to hotel (Taxis cost up to £12 from Newbury to Hotel). Hotel interiors isn't that memorable but overall a pleasant stay especially for the price we paid.
