Dermot and Katie Robinson
Alma House is a lovely Victorian building providing accommodation within a 7-minute walk of Newbury town centre. This bed & breakfast is a 20-minute walk from the train station and 5-minute drive to the M4 motorway. It takes around 20 minutes to walk to Vodafone headquarters (part of which is a beautiful riverside walk) and a supermarket is less than 2 minutes walk away. The two double rooms available to rent are beautifully decorated and each room features free superfast WiFi, Smart TV, double pine bed, armchair, pine desk and chair, washbasin and shaver point, hot drink facilities, hairdryer and a fridge. The rooms are upstairs so are not suitable for people with limited mobility. PLEASE NOTE: WE HAVE SHARED BATHROOMS AND WCs. There are three shared toilets, a power shower and separate bathroom with original Victorian cast-iron bath. Bathrobes and towels are provided. Guests can help themselves to a Continental breakfast of toast, selection of cereals, porridge pots, fresh fruit and yoghurts, with tea, coffee and orange juice provided. A microwave is provided for guests to use. There is limited parking on the drive in front of the house and free well-lit on-street parking nearby.
