Placed not too far walk from the bus and train station. I got a place on first floor against the street but was not disturbed by sound. Got what I needed. A small studio apartment. Everything worked fine Make sure to read the welcome mail from them when booking. As the pdf file is very important to be able check... More

The House of Fisher offer a range of apartments – everything from a studio through to family rooms. I’ve stayed at both the Kings Road and City Wall buildings, and both are very similar. The inside of the apartments are clean, fresh and light, with a good sized sleeping area and bathroom. The single apartments on Kings Road are a... More

We stayed at HoF in Basingstoke for five weeks and were very pleased with the location and the overall experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The apartment was very well keept. The bathroom and kitchen were always well maintained and cleaned. Equipped with all the necessary items. I found it very confortable.

We stayed at HoF for a couple of weeks and generally we were somewhat pleased with the accommodation but would probably not stay there again if we had an alternative. The rooms were small (as expected) and the bathroom was all full of mold. Communication from the hotel staff over email wasn't always very accurate with many of our questions... More

Being a customer location, I had to stay in Reading for 6 weeks between Jun and July 2014. I wanted to avoid a regular hotel and our hotel desk booked me into this apartment hotel. It is at the heart of Reading town center and access is one of the best aspects. If you are on your own, cooking your... More

I intended to spend two nights here but left after the first. There was SO MUCH noise, construction and machines drilling pavements, yes I could shut the windows but you couldn't because the room was so hot! And the only fan provided did not work. 3am some drunk clobbers were screaming on the streets, babies crying, I don't think I... More

Pleasant, spacious and clean room, central location. Perfect for a short - medium stay. Bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper, as West Street is a busy street, night and day (see below). Cereals, milk and juice, tea etc. sufficient for the first morning's breakfast were provided - a helpful touch. After that, you provide your own. Wifi... More

There is one good thing about stand alone groups, the consider your requests. I got a very good deal with them and am loving their service. Staff is extremely accommodating. The best part is location, its right in reading center and lots of eat-lets around. Highly recommended for month plus stay.

I was really impressed by the standard and facilities of the House of Fisher services apartments. They are in a great location with a wide variety of shops and restaurants close by. Everything you need is provided and the accommodation is immaculately presented. I have now stayed there on 5 separate occasions and look forward to my next one!
