The people were friendly, the accommodations adequate without any frills. Restaurant and bar hours were a bit limited, but for a place to hang your hat while in the local area it is fine. There was the main section which I did not see too much of and the annex where I stayed.

Nice cosy atmosphere decorated with red roses, balloons and table trimmings certainly created a romantic setting. But it was the food that was outstanding. I had asparagus tips wrapped in parma ham with a soft boiled egg and hollandaise sauce followed by Garlic and Rosemary Lamb. It was the nicest lamb I had ever tasted. Lovely dinner and service all...

We stayed here for 2 nights over the Christmas break while visiting family locally. The rooms in this hotel are very tired, threadbare and falling apart. There was no towels or soap in the room when we arrived. This hotel requires a full refurbishment to get it up to a basic standard for the rooms.

We used the Borough Arms for a formal dinner for 75 x guests. The organisation, food, service, disco and Staff were excellent and the evening was very good value. Numerous guests commented on how good the evening was.

I got the impression that nothing was too much trouble for the staff The food is excellent, hot and plentiful My only criticism is that the hotel should provide a smoking area that's well away from the hotel itself or...

Had a fab time on NYE, staff couldn't have been friendlier or helpful, food was fantastic and large portions. We were a foursome trying this party night for the first time and it will not be the last, we were amongst the youngest there ( all in our late 40's ) but that did not detract from our enjoyment. Would...

My partner and I were supposed to be getting married in Sept but unfortunately I became very ill and we had to postpone. The original venue we were using were so rude about the postponement, even though they had plenty of notice, so we decided to look elsewhere and The Borough Arms seemed to fit the bill. To be honest...

We booked this hotel after having to cancel our previous venue, just a week before our event. We were offered reduced buffet rates and a favourable room rate for any guests wishing to stay. Mr Sheikh and his staff couldn't have been more helpful. We were able to decorate the room to our requirements and as we didn't require their...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Borough Arms Hotel and Restaurant is one of the oldest established hotels in the Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent areas, with history dating back to 1783. The hotel is very much of the style associated with a traditional English town centre coaching inn, yet has been sensitively and subtly refined to offer the comfort and modern standards demanded by today's visitors. Independently owned and managed, the hotel retains many period features and takes great pride in offering a very personal service. As a valued guest, you may be confident that we will do our utmost to ensure your comfort, whether you are staying in one of our 40 centrally heated, en-suite rooms, visiting us for a meal in the restaurant, or using our conference and banqueting facilities. ... more   less
