"Great garden and bathroom but terrible start to the day at Breakfast"
Enjoyed the garden and the dogs. Great bathroom but needed Kleenex. Bedroom was ok except for spider web on wall near the bed. Missed having snacks (cookies, crackers) in room or in kitchen. Every other place we stay provided snacks, soft drinks and sometimes wine for us. Rookwood provided a bottle of mineral water. Did enjoy having a pot of tea on the patio at arrival. One guest waited an hour for her breakfast . Read less
Likes:
The garden is wonderful!
Dislikes:
Breakfast was meager and proved to be too much for the owner to handle; extremely disorganized at breakfast

"Rookwood is a good location, but the service is lacking."
On the positive side, this is a fine location for visiting Highclere (our reason for booking here.) Additionally, we received friendly and good service from the hosts' substitute during their absence.
However,I fail to understand how one can claim to run a bed and breakfast and not clean a guestroom for three nights running. We also did not have any heat in our room.
Unfortunately, there are more minuses here than plusses. Read less
Likes:
Breakfast in the beautiful dining room was quite nice.
Dislikes:
Our room was not made up or cleaned at any time during our three night's stay at Rookwood.

"A comfortable ,happy stay thank you"
We arrived very early and room not ready. We took taxi into Newbury and returned to a pretty, comfortable room with wonderful view over garden. Stairs I find difficult as 2 hip replacements but Charlotte insisted on carrying suitcases up stairs.
We walked to Lord Lyon Inn which was not cooking meals until re opening in a week. Great pub. Visited Highclere Castle next day( reason for our stay) a 25 min taxi ride.
If you love dogs you will enjoy your stay. Dalmatians mum and pups so cute. Read less
Likes:
Our room, great breakfast around communal dining table in lovely formal dining room and beautiful gardens. Also made very welcome.

"Wonderful B&B Near Highclere Castle"
We stayed 3 nights at the Rookwood House in Newbury, England. It is a beautiful property with lovely gardens and a great location convenient to visiting Highclere Castle (aka Downton Abbey), Stonehenge, Avebury and Bath. Proprietors Charlotte and Rupert Digby were very helpful and provided great service, delicious breakfast. We stayed in their carriage house (two rooms above a living area) which were good sized, clean and comfortable. An added bonus was that their dalmatian dog had 11 puppies! Read less

"Enjoyed but would look elsewhere next time"
Booked a room for three - but was given one room for 2 and a single room. The room for three was apparently already occupied. They offered a refund, but it was the evening, so we stayed anyway. The single room was very worn, and there was nothing attractive about it. The room for two was much nicer. Neither room had an ensuite so we had to wander in and out in pyjamas and towels - not ideal. Also felt uncomfortable walking in and out of house as had to go through the area where the hosts lived. Read less
Likes:
The gardens, the access to a kitchen area, the pool and playing croquet.
Dislikes:
Not given the room we booked. Felt like intruding in family home.
