Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa is a beautiful stately home a short distance from Royal Windsor. It’s set in acres of verdant landscaped gardens, amidst rolling Berkshire landscape.

Make the most of the freshly updated restaurant, bar and reception from the hotel’s recent million-pound refurbishment.
The hotel presents ample opportunity for enjoying modern-traditional British and European cuisine, including wholesome English breakfasts, cream teas and fine dining in The Hyperion Restaurant, Diadem Bar and Oak Lounge. The spa delightfully houses an outdoor hydrotherapy pool and a glass-walled indoor swimming pool. Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa reached the GreenLeaders Silver status for its eco-friendly practices.
How to Get There
Generally a good hotel. We went for a weekend break with the kids (9 & 10). A pleasant experience, room was good, they have recently been refurbed. Bar area a bit tired. Good location for LEGOLAND and the race course although not a child friendly venue. Pool good but only open for kids at very limited times. Breakfast - food was good but was not well conducted. Again limited hours.
Second time staying here, first time was fairly poor and unfortunately second time was worse.
Staff are poorly trained in basics around customer service and even checking on the drinks you have ordered (which they had forgotten about) feels like an inconvenience to them. Restaurant unable to honour booking so made to order from bar meal (no compensation offered). Breakfast team seemed unprepared to deal with a large volume of people (eg no butter, milk, salt and pepper on table).
Rooms were small, noisy and in need to structural repair.
Need to do better.
We stayed at the Macdonald Berystede for one night for a hen weekend. Staff were helpful and the beds were comfortable and Rooms were clean. The spa was quite nice, although there were no robes or slippers for us on our second day. The facilities were quite good and we enjoyed the outdoor hydro pool. The treatments were enjoyable - I had a massage and a facial, both which were very relaxing. There was also a nice outdoor garden area.
The restaurant was nice and we enjoyed dinner. The mushroom risotto was delicious. Service was a little slow. There was a good selection for breakfast too - although it took a long time for our coffees to arrive. Overall a nice weekend.
