Score from 294 reviews Good
The location works so well for shopping and the train station. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly.
Our room had a smell of cigarette smoke
£2.50 for a small bottle of water.
Reception, pleasant and knowledgeable. Rooms clean, and very well planned. Breakfast, perfect.
Road works made car park access very confusing
Comfy bed, spacious room. Very clean throughout. Excellent breakfast.
All good, nothing could be improved on.
Good breakfast and great position
Couldn't get the room to cool down. Had to open the window but still very warm.
I have emailed and complained about the hotel as the bed was very uncomfortable, hard. Two singles pushed together. Not good enough for price
The bathroom is split into two parts which isn't comfy
Cleanliness, staff were really helpful, comfortable spacious room, breakfast was very good. Enjoyed the whole stay.
Value for money. Closeness to station. Space in room, cleanliness.
the location was great and the swimming pool very good
the only problem was with the breakfast the chef seems to let items run out rather than run low
Not good value for money, could of stayed somewhere cleaner and more luxurious for a better price. Bed was hard, room was dusty and dirty
Room ac doesn't work
Breakfast Rooms Staff
Nice room, excellent restaurant/breakfast.
Not easy to understand parking arrangements at NCP; poorly advertised. No air-con in the room; window was able to be opened but auto-shut!
Quiet room with views over Reading
Water in fridge charged as an extra if consumed
Attitude of the staff
Queue for breakfast
First class hotel close to the train station which was ideal for us
No proper restaurant so we didn't eat here
Lovely staff, exec room really well equipped and great value too Good breakfast selection
one coffee machine at breakfast - massive queues 3 slow lifts for a 13 floor hotel? Wifi a bit slow on 8th floor
Reception and welcome was very good, checkout was equally as good. Breakfast dining was very good at 7 am, great selection of cold and hot buffet. Gym and swimming pool facilities were good.
Bar was slow service and perhaps understaffed. Hotel parking limited, although NCP across the road is a sound alternative and 4 quid cheaper. Lifts are not the easiest to use, a lot of confusion on where the lift would take you next and would often loose the memory of your selected floor, meaning it would take you to the ton before back down again.
Breakfast - plenty of choice, despite the hot buffet being pre-cooked & re-heated. Location, great if you need to be in the centre of town, otherwise go elsewhere
Separate toilet Very hot in room Noise from revellers in street until 0500! Only 1 thin pillow per person Cheap & nasty man-made fibre quilt
Room Towels Shampoo
Location in center of Reading very close to all restaurants and shops. Parking is available in the basement and very convenient, but very small and tight spaces.
Could be noisy at night. Toilet is in a different room than washbasin and shower.
the staff were polite and extremely helpful. I met lovely people, had a good nights sleep and enjoyed the breakfast.
I like how lovely the hotel vibe was!
I didn't like the price but as it is expensive.
