Holiday Inn Reading South M4 Jct 11 offers air-conditioned rooms, just off junction 11 of the M4 motorway. It is 3.2 km south of Reading’s town centre, railway station and university.

The hotel was better than expected but the staff were amazing and really made it a memorable stay for the kids which is what it was all about. We stayed here prior to going to Legoland the next day. Lovely lady in reception made effort to engage with the kids and gave them each a hot chocolate before bed. Then at breakfast, there was an amazing make colleague who really made breakfast time special for the kids!

Malmaison Reading, hotel in Reading

This unique residence is a modern reworking of the Great Western Hotel, built in 1844 and reputed to be the oldest surviving railway hotel in the world.

Location is handy for Reading station and the town centre. Despite the central location it is quite a quiet area. My room, 218, was spacious and comfortable with a good en-suite bathroom. The decor is a gloomy grey but in keeping with the hotel aesthetic. The staff are always nice and friendly.

Bull Inn, hotel in Reading

Originally a 16th-century coaching inn, The Bull is located in the pretty village of Sonning on Thames.

Lovely location, very close to the tow path next to the Thames and great for walking our dog without having to navigate the busy narrow roads at Sonning. We dined there in the evening, limited range for vegetarians but helpful staff who gained advise from the Kitchen on dairy free options. Book a table ahead of your stay especially at the weekend. Our breakfast was very good, cut above the usual offering of a fry up 😉 but offered that to! Be accepting that this is a very popular busy pub so the noise that travels up into the rooms might not suit everyone, however, it will quieten down after the pub closes and the hardworking staff head on home 😊

FAQs about hotels in Reading









Work and Play Beside the Thames

At the meeting point of the Thames and Kennet rivers, affluent Reading is close to London, yet far enough to feel completely different. For this reason it is an important business hub, particularly for IT. The M4 motorway runs directly from here to Heathrow Airport, and trains from its station terminate at Paddington.

The town has literary connections to Jane Austen – whose school was in the Abbey Gateway – and Oscar Wilde, who was imprisoned in its jail. Nowadays, the Reading Festival is its biggest cultural event and has earned a place in the town hall museum. However, its most impressive exhibit is a replica of the Bayeux Tapestry.

The Reading shopping options include Broad Street and The Oracle, a riverside complex also housing bars, cinemas and restaurants. The river continues south to one of the town’s green spaces, some housing golf courses. Forbury Gardens features a bandstand and large lion statue, and next door are ruins of an abbey founded by Henry I.

Potential day trips include the Roman remains at Silchester, and river cruises to Henley-on-Thames, while sport lovers should visit the Madejski Stadium, home of Reading FC and London Irish rugby club.

Booking.com’s Reading accommodation includes hotels with spas, cheap apartments and guest houses with parking.

    In truth, I didn't visit Reading for the town itself, but to see my daughter who lives in a flat there. We drove around for a short while, so that we could see some shops and eat out somewhere. We had a short stop on a barge to have a nice cup of tea then later ate at The Oracle in a Japaneese restaurant called OSAKA at Unit 16, Riverside Level. OSAKA had a really good vibe as well as good food ;-) I didn't find Reading particularly interesting, as it somehow felt like a jumble of concrete buildings and roads. No doubt it has some hidden treasures, like the barge we found to have tea on - which needed to be booked. It has to be said that I didn't have many hours there at all, therefore, nothing was espeically planned.

    The town and the major roads into it are extremely busy. Lots of traffic lights and some complex junctions and lane changing. We did not stop in the town centre because that was not the object of our visit. The golf course looked tempting but that will have to wait for another time.

    We love the Forbury Gardens and Reading Abbey.

    We love the Forbury Gardens and Reading Abbey. We had an excellent meal at "Veeno's" near The Forbury which serves fabulous authentic Italian food and the atmosphere is unbeatable. The evening was completed with a visit to "High Spirits" in Kings Walk. It serves the most wonderful and imaginative cocktails in the whole of Reading. The staff are very knowledgeable and personable and service is swift and courteous. Highly recommended.

    Staff very friendly upon arrival. Room is decent size no space for a desk or bedside lamps however. Coat Racks, Large TV, Free Wi-Fi, large bathroom were all highlights. Had a large double bed which is extremely comfy. For the price this far exceeded my expectations. I used this place for somewhere to rest my head overnight due to train cancellations from Reading to Cardiff. It's within walking distance (10 mins) of Reading Station, town centre which boasts high street shops, pubs and eating establishments.

    I booked this room very last minute for work and was blown away by the quality and value for money. My initial room was very small, but I was anticipating that and it was still excellent value, however I got a free upgrade which was very appreciated. Free whiskey and/or sloe gin for guests, an excellent restaurant below. A short walk from the centre of Reading and in a quiet area. 10/10 doesn't do it justice, was one of my best hotel experiences when on work.
