Newbury & Area Holiday Reviews

Highclere, near Newbury

If a rural retreat is what you’re after, then look no further than our hotels in Newbury. A principal town in the county of Berkshire, the area is most well-known for its high calibre horse training and famous Newbury Racecourse, ideal if sporting events are your thing. The town, with its many 17th century buildings, is located in the picturesque River Kennet valley and overlooked by the North Wessex Downs making it an area of outstanding beauty.

  • Take a tour around the home of Downton Abbey with a visit to Highclere Castle. The stunning castle and landscape will keep you mesmerised for hours, with some great private tours available should you wish to learn more
  • If you fancy having a flutter on your short break then get yourself to Newbury Racecourse. Host of many great race days, you can bet on your favourites and enjoy the vibrant atmosphere
  • For a relaxed evening full of culture, The Watermill Theatre offers everything from classic Shakespeare to big-number musicals, all in front of an intimate 220-seater audience
Staying in our Newbury hotels also gives you great access to larger areas such as Reading and Swindon, thanks to easy access onto the M4 motorway.

Sunny Days down by the canals, Newbury

Stay Date: 29/05/16, a customer aged 25-44 from Maidstone who stayed at 4* Mercure Newbury Elcot Park (2 Night Offer & 1st Night Dinner) in Newbury (Nr) wrote this review.

Elcot was a little further out of Newbury than expected but not a problem, very quiet area and the hotel and surroundings very nice (a little more love and attention to flowers would make it even See More  Read more information better). Visited Newbury, Hungerford and Bath on this stay, all nice places, parking a little steep in Bath but to be expected. Hotel rooms very comfortable and roomy and clean, the only thing missingfor me was a bottle of water and a small packet of biscuits and then it would be perfect.   Collapse  Hide
