Can't fault the hotel or staff it has a lovely welcome and relaxing feel. We booked over the internet then emailed to ask about parking and we received a prompt response. On arrival the receptionist actually looked at our preferences and did her best to accommodate us - so thank you very much for that. Car parking is nearby and... More

We paid £59 B&B - i thought his was excellent value. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable and the shower is excellent. My only complaint is that the heating/ cooling system is a bit noisy. It's conveniently located on the edge of Reading Town centre - not the nicest part of Reading though

I organised an all-day conference at the Pentahotel Reading, throughout the whole organisation process I couldn't fault the staff for helping me to tailor the event to suit my needs and they went out of their way to ensure that I had everything I needed for the event to run smoothly. On the day the conference ran smoothly, all the... More

Room was on the smaller side for a double, but quite enough space. Bathroom well appointed, although I think shower only. "Double" bed was two singles zipped together with two single duvets (odd, but fine) and the most pointless pillows I've ever come across (even doubled up, my head was basically on the matress). There was some noticable road noise... More

Stayed here on business for 3 nights in March 2014 Impressive foyer and bar area as you come in, and the pool table area was good for some 'team building' one night. Rooms are ok, but expected better standards. Food was hit n miss, good meal one night to mediocre the next! Breakfast buffet very good though. Positives: Good for... More

Spent two nights. The feel of the hotel is very chilled out but nothing is lost professionally. Loved the black and white films playing on the wall. Bar is lovely though a little expensive. The room was on the 6th floor. Would have been nice to open to the window more than half an inch The enormous bed was very... More
