Checkin was swift and smooth,no queuing .The room was clean,comfortable and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was very good, a nice choice and the hot food was actually hot as it should be. The public areas bar etc are very... More

We tend to use this hotel when watching our children rowing in competitions in Reading. It's right next to the river, has beautiful views and a convenient restaurant and lounge for coffees and snacks. The rowing course is a short stroll away and there is plenty of parking. It has worked a treat for us over the years when you... More

This hotel very comfortable and in a lovely setting on the river. A great location for scenic walks. All the staff were friendly, courteous and professional. They went above and beyond the call of duty. When my suitcase kept bursting open they secured it very nicely with plastic grips. The rooms are luxurious and the beds are very comfortable. I... More

We stayed three nights here attending a friend’s birthday celebrations. The hotel has a lovely setting by the river and very convenient as part of the celebrations was an evening boat ride on the river with the departure point just next to the hotel. It is also just a short taxi ride from the centre. Parking was easy and convenient.... More

Stayed here last weekend for a Stag Do. Amazing hotel. The staff were great, the bar in the hotel isn't too expensive and location is pretty good too. The pool, sauna and jacuzzi are great. The steam room was broken so didn't get to use it. The only issue I can see is the hotel charges £16.95 or something for... More

We often stay at this hotel as it is by the river and the rooms are modern, clean and comfortable. The area the hotel is situated in is not interesting but it is not far to walk or taxi into the town centre. There is a nice river walk behind the hotel. Parking is free here unlike most other Reading... More
