Modern detached family home located on the southern edge of the town in a quiet location. Backing on to open countryside with far reaching views of the Berkshire and Wiltshire countryside. We are a short walk from the town centre, railway station and the Kennet and Avon Canal. M4(J14) is approx 3 miles away making this an ideal stopover or touring base. Hosts pleased to help with touring information - many excellent local walks. Off-street parking, secure cycle store and drying facilities. All rooms decorated to a very high standard, light and airy with splendid views of garden and the beautiful countryside. Single room available if let with another room and prepared to share bathroom. Very convenient for business in the Thames Valley. Fishing on the River Kennet can be arranged. Warm welcome in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

We stopped here on our way to the Channel Tunnel. the owners made us welcome and the room was warm and comfortable with nice rural views. Breakfast was tailored to our requirements as we both had upset digestions from a lunch stop the previous day. It was tasty and perked us up.

I forget exactly how we found Hungerford. It's not a tourist town (which is a plus, for me). I had made a similar tour of the area in 2003 (Stonehenge and Avebury) and stayed in Marlborough, which was a perfectly fine town. I was just looking for someplace different and maybe a little quieter. So I looked at a map of the area, researched small towns and browsed through Tripadvisor for hotel and B&B reviews. Alderborne House B&B (aka Honeybones B&B) was the most reasonably priced highly-rated lodging in town. This probably applies to other countries as well, but beware of the location of listings in Tripadvisor. The current #2 B&B listed is actually 5 miles outside of Hungerford. I'm sure it's very nice but it's in the middle of nowhere. We were looking for someplace that we could walk to restaurants and pubs from. Alderborne House fit the bill. Alderborne House is located a 10 minute walk from the High Street and it's on a quiet dead-end street. When the Honeybones's retired, they decided to rent out their kid's rooms to visitors. It's a modern house with modern amenities. They typically rent out only one room at a time so you have a choice between the room in the back of the house with twin beds and a beautiful view of the Berkshire countryside or the room in the front of the house with a double bed. Both are upstairs. We opted for the double bed, which may be the most comfortable bed that I've ever slept in. To the left of that room is the bathroom and to the right is a room with a fridge for guests and tea/coffee making equipment. The room was warm (it was unseasonably cold and windy during our visit) and quiet. Pat and Colin Honeybone are great hosts. Both are very knowledgeable about the area and can steer you towards sights, activities, dining options, etc. They are inveterate walkers, as are we, and gave us advise about where to take walks nearby. There is plenty to do in the area See their website. Pat makes a fabulous Full English Breakfast. Continental breakfast is available as well. Breakfast is served in their sunroom that looks out on their pretty garden, full of flowers and birds, and the rolling hills of the Berkshire countryside. Pat & Colin, thank you for welcoming us into your home. Should we ever visit the area again, we would not hesitate to stay at Alderborne House again.

We stayed at Alderborne House for one night on 9th August, 2014. We were given a choice of rooms and opted for the double at the front of the house. The room was light and spacious, well presented, spotlessly clean and had all the usual amenities as well as ample wardrobe and drawer space. The bathroom, which was adjacent the room, was also of a high standard with well maintained facilities and a decent shower. Breakfast was superb with plenty of choice and served in a delightful sunroom with fantastic views over the countryside. Pat, our hostess, was absolutely charming and made us feel very welcome. We would have no hesitation in staying at Alderborne House in the future and would fully recommend this B&B accommodation.

It's always a pleasure to read reviews especially the good ones. Our motto has always been 'remain small' and this way guests are given that little extra attention especially where diets are concerned ! We do prefer to know in advance of any extra special diets but one of the nice things about a bnb is that mostly they are prepared !
