Idyllically situated on the riverbank in the picturesque conservation village of Sonning-on-Thames near Reading, this charming hotel prides itself on friendly and professional service at all times.
Score from 235 reviews Very good
Right outside the Oracle, location couldn't be better for the town centre. Friendly staff, comfortable room.
Old, creaky, uneven floorboards and a rabbit warren to get to the room. For me it all added character, but for those less steady on their feet it could be a challenge
The positive about this hotel is its location. That's it.
Hotel is a very old building approx 200 years plus. Due to this it is a labyrinth of small corridors. Everything is old, dirty or broken. It looks beyond tired. Cleaning in rooms is very poor. Facilities in rooms are sub standard.
close proximity to town large bathroom
being woken at 4.30am long walk to room
There was no hairdryer
The parking isn't cheap and they don't give you any information as to where it is. Ruby on front desk barely acknowledged me when I walked in- she might want to reconsider her position in customer service. Fire alarm going off at 5am- really?? Ordered room service- food was cold and pretty rubbish. Bedroom small and the bathroom was huge- old building but bit strange.
This was the best value hotel I've ever stayed in. Clean and comfortable. Decor slightly dated but that doesn't bother me. Right next to the oracle do shopping and coffee shops for breakfast. Was allowed early check and and late check out. Very quiet room. At £30 it was an absolute bargain!
This hotel was perfectly situated for a Christmas shopping trip at the oracle and surrounding shops. Convenieny situated and close to restaurants and the station, the location couldn't have been better. The lady on duty at the desk was lovely, the room perfectly clean and warm, and quiet too! A definite hit and we shall be returning next year for sure.
The room was nice and clean. It was lovely and warm. There was plenty of tea and coffee making facilities.
There was alittle noise due to the party people in the streets but thats just life.
the location and the friendly staff
no lift available
Ruby welcomed us very warmly and she made us feel so welcome and valued. The bed was a dream....We just wanted to sleep forever. We loved the character of the hotel and being able to sit in the courtyard with our coffee. One of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Everything was just perfect .... Thankyou so much... It must be the hidden gem of Reading ❤ Pam and Chris
We loved everything ❤
We were upgraded to 'Executive' room and I loved the coffee machine - just needed fresh milk !!
Fire alarm going off a 8 am
Parking costs £15 and not £6.50 as stated on the website
Central location wit good access to rail and bus routes
Bit of a rabbit warren of a building being so old. Room cleanliness reasonable but litter bin in bedroom had old torn liner and the actual bucket and holder were very dirty.
Check in is 3 PM Check out is 11 AM if you increase one hour or 30 mini they will charge you 15£ . Normally and common is 1PM
Attractive old coaching inn
I was asked to pay a second time for a Room Service meal, for which I had already paid cash. For this I was offered a 'pre-authorisation' arrangement on my card. What does this mean? It seems of dubious legality and implications, and I only agreed because I was in a hurry and the sum was small. It seems ironic that they didn't trust me, but I was asked to trust them! Can they really afford to insult their guests over such a small sum (£9.45)? I'll stay elsewhere next time. If you are staying here, do insist on getting a receipt for all 'extras' if you pay as you go. Especially if you need to leave on time.
style, friendlyness, central location price ok
to have to ask for internet access every day/every second day
Location and amenities were excellent.
1. The location is excellent. 2. Breakfast is good.
1. had to walk a lot with my luggage. climb lots of stairs. no elevator. 2. WiFi was 96kbps and kept disconnecting. 3. My single (!) room was quite small but manageable.
Ok its a coaching Inn with some atmosphere and friendly staff who try hard but..
Its a rambling old building with chipped paint, tired carpets and a central heating system that either rumbled or just did not work. It is in the centre of Reading and I suspect at weekends it is properly hell on earth. I could not work out why all the hotels are so expensive round here - it is only Reading
Good position for transport, food outlets, and major stores.
Bathroom was a bit small, shower instead of a bath/shower would have given drying space. All else nice.
The hotel is set in a good central position close to shops, bars and restaurants. The room was spacious, clean and the bed was very comfortable.
After a night out we returned to the hotel ready for a good nights sleep but this wasn't to be. Throughout the night there was a constant humming sound, wasn't sure if it was the air conditioning. At 9.30 am the following morning we went to have our cooked breakfast which is apparently available until 10.00 am. However most the serving bowls were empty, and the food that was left looked terrible. A waitress told us she would get us a cooked breakfast and to wait 3 minutes. Twenty minutes later an already plated breakfast arrived. I would have preferred to make my own selection but never mind. However when we started to eat the breakfast it was cold! We left the hotel feeling both tired and hungry.
Good value for money
right next to the Oracle shopping centre
Convenient location for Reading railway station and Railair bus to Heathrow. Easy check in and out. Very good value for money. Courteous and helpful staff.
Basic, cheerless room, poor lighting. Steep stairs, narrow corridors, no lift. Problem with bathroom door, very noisy on opening or closing.
