This was not our first visit here but the hotel had changed from a Holiday Inn to a Crowne Plaza. The location is amazing, next to the Thames with fabulous walks. We use it for leisure, I have no idea whether it is convenient for anything else as we are so happy here we don't bother going anywhere else! The... More

Great location, 2 minute taxi to town (friar street) or 10/15 by foot, room was lovely and clean, pool was warm and clean, food was lovely and staff were very friendly. Can't really find a bad point, maybe more staff on at check out time on a Sunday?

Stayed here over the weekend at the Club room. The room was great especially if you get the king size bed club room with balcony. It is overlooking the River Thames. The added benefit of the club room is access to club lounge. There you have complimentary tea and coffee all day. In the evening (6-8pm), they serve snack food... More

We used this hotel for a two night weekend stay. We booked a Club Room with a river view. Most of the rooms with a river view also look out over a large flat roof with a pyramidal glass structure - the atrium of the restaurant below; but the view was good enough. The location by the Thames is very... More

Just had a 2 night stay at The Crowne Plaza whilst visiting relatives in Reading. A very nice hotel for the price (approx. £188 for two people including breakfast) Situated on the bank of the River Thames, far enough from the town centre to avoid most of the noise but near enough to walk to the shops (about 15 mins)....
