I need some help - we are planning to go to Legoland this weekend, so need to stay in Windsor area, which is proving a problem, I can't get a family room in a hotel at a reasonable price so am looking further afield. I can get a cheap Hilton room in Newbury through my work, so plan thus far is:
Travel down most of the way on Friday. Travel on to Legoland early Saturday morning. Stay in Newbury Saturday night. Go in to London on Sunday for the day, then back out and stay in Newbury again on Sunday night. Travel to the coast on Monday till Friday.
Is staying the weekend in Newbury a daft plan? Should I keep looking closer to Legoland?

Have you tried Staines or slough. They are really near Windsor. With good train links to London.

Not totally daft. It's on the m4, good rail links into London. Are you planning on driving or training into London? Driving also easy
Legoland not far off m4 either, probably looking at about 45 mins from Newbury. Could also look at reading hotels as that's another 30 mins closer to Windsor and 20 mins direct to paddington on the train

No! I can get Staines Travelodge pretty cheap but reviews are awful....there's a premier inn at Sunbury Cross? Just googled and it looks like good reviews and handy for both London and Legoland?

We'd get train into London I think WH - hadn't considered driving, just assumed that it'd be a nightmare?
Thank you both for replying x

Thanks WH, I've booked the Premier Inn at Reading South - 38 mins to Legoland apparently and even though we aren't in central Reading I'd imagine getting in and getting the train from there is probably the best bet.
woohoo, getting excited now!

Ooh about 5 mins from me! There's a cheap park and ride at madjeski stadium 5 min drive from there which takes 10 minutes to get to the station. Parking at reading station is extortionate! You're 3 mins off the m4 there so easy for legoland

Hilton in Bracknell is really close. The Grange might be worth a try too.

Oops, just seen you've booked.
