Good sized room and good choice at breakfast, very clean and extremely helpful staff.
Recommended taxi service not too good as they didn't seem to know where they were going!!!
Restaurant and bar area nice and comfortable
Location was good with parking. Breakfast (when I finally got it as they had run out of most of the hot food) was good. Bed was comfy room was clean.
2 weeks previously I had asked for an early check in as I was attending a wedding and would have been driving for two hours. Was told they would try but couldn't guarantee. Got there at 12.45 and was told rather curtly that check inn was not until 3pm. My room wasn't ready and I had to change in the toilet. A friend who hadn't requested an early check in was not only able to go to her room early but had actually been upgraded. When I finally got to my room it was actually a family room ( I was a solo guest. ) People were chatting and drinking in the courtyard outside my room until 3am made it impossible to get to sleep.
Lovely pub with great staff members who were are very helpful and cheery
Very soft mattress Window skylight only in the room - could only be opened when not raining!
Near bike route from LHR. Provided outdoor semi-secure bike parking.
Our total experience was fantastic from an early check in to a late departure.
Nothing to dislike
What a fabulous, cozy little hotel ! The staff are very friendly, the rooms cosy and welcoming and the breakfast absolutely fantastic ! When it transpired we'd left an item behind the staff went out of their way to ensure we got it back. I would highly recommend the Bird in Hand ! Great value for money.
Everything. Pleasant, helpful and friendly staff, and excellent service. Very good dinner too and substantial well cooked breakfast. Lots of atmosphere derived from a beautifully modernised inn a few hundred years old. I will definitely stay there again if I am ever in that part of the world.
The location Excellent food Comfortable bed Very clean Free Wi-fi
Lack of convenient plug sockets
Good clean basic accomodation, with hearty breakfast included. staff welcoming and polite.
It was rainy, but I guess they could not influence that :-)
Good location near train station for access to london good variety at breakfast friendly helpful staff
Food and drink expensive bacon on last morning disappointing over cooked and dried out like it had been heated up from the day before
Very good location, lovely setting. Clean and all staff very attentive. Food good and plentiful.
Only one negative, the bed was too soft.
The atmosphere The helpful friendly staff The cleanliness and décor The comfort of the room Sunday lunch was amazing The grounds/garden All Amazing
The breakfast. This was the only let down for us...one girl serving and trying to accommodate all the guests and sadly the breakfast was overcooked and not that nice...would be better to be served rather than help yourself!
Most comfortable mattress ever slept on. Very good roast meal.
Room not as big as expected and no bath, only shower. Skylight window so no view. Though getting an executive room so bit disappointed but wonderful mattress made up for it.
Friendly staff. clean room, good choice of evening food
Location, food, room and staff all good
No bathroom extraction
Character Helpful Staff Lovely location Gorgeous room Really nice bar serving what looked like very good food.
Our visit was somewhat spoiled by a rather poor breakfast. The bacon was undercooked and most of the food was lukewarm at best, cold at worst. If this could be sorted out, the whole experience would have been perfect.
Very relaxing, rustic charm surroundings, with friendly, helpful staff.
Nothing, everything was perfect
Bed was comfortable and shower room was spacious
Breakfast was poor, not all items available and Luke warm. Not sufficient milk for 2 people to have 2 cups of tea.
location, food in the restaurant
no aircon, very hot at night
Friendly locals, happy staff, superb food and a whole range of traditional beers make this place THE stopover to use. Located less than 10 minutes from the M4 and easy to find, its been a legend in Reading for years - and where we spent numerous happy evenings in our youth. We came back after 20 years away (on a flying visit to relatives) to find it had only got better. The staff were helpful and friendly and the food first class, while the room was spotlessly clean and welcoming. What a pleasant change in these times when Inns promise much and often deliver so little. Thank you Bird in Hand!!
Not enough time to stay another night
The bath n bathroom somehow it was strangely inviting n lovely.
Nothing at all. Was a warm night so we could sit out til late at night. All was good.
We had a lovely time staying at the bird in hand inn. Loved the old English style country pub. All staff really friendly and made you feel comfortable. Our room was clean and nice modern bathroom.
The only negative was that the room was hot. There was a fan supplied which helped.
Staff, all of whom seemed to be Australian, were very friendly, welcoming and efficient.
We like walking but it is on a busy road with little of interest nearby.
Large Car Park. Ambience Function Facility Function Arrangements and Food Large Garden Area. Breakfast selection good, pleasant dining area. Helpful, efficient reception. Comprehensive Local information available. Well placed for visiting area. Good Bar selection.
Late noise from small rear garden /seating area intrusive to room. (5)
