Reasonable seat space and a clean stadium

Went here for a Rugby game - stadium about three quarters full. Getting in takes time (unsurprisingly), but once in, getting to seats is easy enough. Standard tip seats, but... read more

I attended the London Irish vs Edinburgh Euro QF game, it was a very disappointing attendance and the Edinburgh fans added the atmosphere although the Craic bar was excellent with an irish band.

I am a regular at Madejski for the rugby. The stadium is great but the catering really isn't. The choices are old-school hotdogs, pies etc. which is a little disappointing when other stadiums have such a broader choice of fare. The staff are so slow, it is a wonder some weeks! This is the home of London Irish, so a... More

Went here for a Rugby game - stadium about three quarters full. Getting in takes time (unsurprisingly), but once in, getting to seats is easy enough. Standard tip seats, but really good leg room makes it easier for people in the middle of the row to get in and out (and the ones next to us seemed to need to... More

The stadium is nice - there is no contesting that. When it came to half-time and we wanted a snack and drink however, we were left disappointed. The food stands would not accept card so we went on a hunt for a cash point. It turns out there are none in the whole vicinity. We ran over to the hotel,... More

Clean, modern and loads of leg room. Most stadium seats are worse than aircraft seats but not at the Madejski. Typically we stood all through the game though! One of the few stadiums where I'd have preferred to sit in comfort! Lovely stadium. Shame some of the Reading fans went on to pitch invade and goad the Bradford fans after... More

My tip is if the weather is looking dubious dont select a front row seat! I was thrilled to have a front row seat at the Rugby however on the day the heavens opened and we discovered the first 10 rows dont get any protection! Fortunately the hot drinks and excellent food topped with great rugby made up for the... More

Can only comment as a Rugby fan, it may be totally different for football fans. I found the stadium to be unwelcoming and empty, as a Saints Supporter I'm used to a full Stadium and plenty of pre match entertainment between supporters. I was disappointed and will not be in a hurry to return. Its a shame as the Irish... More

I was corporate entertained and found the hospitality staff really friendly and helpful. The match day ambassador (ex player Michael Gilkes) was amazing credit to the club

Like a lot of new stadiums, well out of the town centre, and a taxi or bus fare to be added on. Expensive to park for car drivers too. The ground is typical of a lot of new grounds built in the last 15 years or so. No atmosphere from the home fans until they scored, over crowded concourses and... More

Once again (year 5) we used The Royal Berkshire Conference Centre at the Madejski for our annual conference and black tie dinner. The reason we keep coming back is these guys are faultless. Everything works and they are right on their game which is just what you need at what can be a stressful time.
