One of the best Stadiums I've been to

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... read 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.

I have been a season ticket holder for around 8 years. The food served in the West Stand has not improved during this time - it is expensive stodge. I have to 'fight' to get a cup of tap water. My son, who is also a season ticket holder, continually moans that the beer served is not chilled and the... More

As season ticket holders we are used to it, the hotel bar is nice, jazz cafe nice and typical match day food, pasties, pies, beer. It has a good atmosphere on rugby days.
