This unique residence is a modern reworking of the Great Western Hotel, built in 1844 and reputed to be the oldest surviving train hotel in the world.
Score from 289 reviews Very good
nice lobby, huge bed, great shower, clean
understaffed, room looks like a random flea market shopping spree, favourite of stag/hen groups so always noisy.
very comfy and big bed
hot water failed in the morning
Nice room Good breakfast Friendly staff
The noise from other guests
I didnt like that the hotel didnt have sombody who takes luggage from lobby to rooms
Hotel faciliyies is modern and well looked after. Ok distance from Reading train station.
The reception staff were rude. The hotel room was badly equipment and had broken items in. Personnel acted very slow or did nothing when I asked for help. I will never go to this hotel again and will strongly advise others not to
love the hotel and the staff are great, good location
well stayed many times before, this stay bulbs not working in bathroom, bathroom mirror extremely hot, after a shower had to listen to it drip for 20 mins due to build up of lime scale, wallpaper peeling off wall 3 big damp patches on the ceiling, did email penta direct to point this out and did not even get a response from them
Location . Modern stylish decor. Huge open entrance and reception area.
Only minor issue was was the noise from other guests. The room we stayed in didn't seem to have adequate soundproofing from the hallway outside.
Stylish decor, welcoming and efficient staff, good restaurant and very comfortable bed. 100m from the Theatre and 200m from multi-storey parking
Good location, good breakfast, big beds.
the comfort of the room and bed
no balconey, no welcome screen no welcome as honeymoon party, would not reckoment for anything other than stay over hotel
I loved the design of the hotel and the layout, all very impressive. The atmosphere in the hotel is laid back and there is a lot to keep you interested. The bar and seating areas are clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
I didn't like the fact that the wi-fi was only free for 30 mins. I would like it to be free for the duration of my stay.
Very close to shopping centre
Changing the bed sheet every 4 nights
Location is very good Breakfast was very good Reception area very modern Staff helpful
Room was very hot no air con Could not open windows at all Wifi very poor signal had to use my 4G
The room was great and clean good free movies
Every time i stay there's some crazy guest running down hall screaming drunk till 5am one time i got refunded this time couldn't be bothered to complain just won't use again i paid to sleep and again got none!
Spacious open reception Comfortable rooms
No tea making facilities in room WiFi is very poor - at market slot they are aiming at, demands much better.
Room was to hot with the air conditioning on as well
Free Wifi is always a great thing, and the staff were very helpful, the free water was missing, no big deal, one of the desk lamps flickered on and off at will when turned on, again, no big deal. The toilet broke at 3am and we got moved to another room without question, and even that didn't spoil the stay as the staff were great and the hotel ideally situated for us. Very comfortable. But be warned about the deposit mentioned in the negative part.
No mention of being charged a £25 per day 'damage deposit' charged to our card when we arrived, this took a large part of our budget for the weekend and was quite frankly a bit of an insult. Having checked out it we find it takes a few days to be credited back to the card, others in our party that had booked and paid in advance were not charged this. Not impressed, this didn't totally ruin the weekend, but it put a damper on it and left us short of money for a few days.
friendly efficient staff Good breakfast Good sized room
Staff, cleanliness of room, very comfortable bed
no bath, view a bit industrial( nothing major to moan about)
Very easy to find, well located for parking and train station. Outstanding lobby, very attractive and professional. Helpful and friendly staff. didnt have breakfast or dinner, but the areas looked very clean and i expect they were to a high standard. 24 hour bar is great to have, though didnt go Being allowed a smoking room was a nice surprise Good value for money
No tea and coffee making in room, would have expected it in such a nice hotel.. Whilst comfy, the double bed was just two singles.. which is irritating. I slept fine, but my boyfriend didnt, complained of people slamming doors and running down corridors all night. i did hear some of it but wasnt bothered. So he made us leave at 6.30..
Interesting layout and decor .. alternative,imaginative design that made a refreshing change to the norm. Reception bar area was fascinating. Walk in shower. Huge comfy bed. Food was burgers and pizza only but very good. Central reading location.
Not a location for great views!
The hotel location was fabulous. The rooms where exceptionally clean and the food in restaurant was delicious with very quick service
The reception staff came across very rude and unapproachable, also the wifi was extremely slow an was unable to use
Virtually everything: the toilet, the comfort, the space...all of it and more.
I did not like that the reception and the lounge were not well lit...for me they could do better with brighter bulbs instead of the sickening red bulbs. Even outside the hotel needs more lighting
Stylish lobby, 24 hour bar, beds, good value
Would've been nice to have a sauna
Bedding and cleanliness. Staff helpful too
Quite noisy in bar as a wedding but hey they were having fun!
