I have stayed at Penta twice and both times have had a pleasant experience from when you check in to check out. The facilities are good, rooms are clean and the hotel is located close to Broad Street and Oracle Mall. Also if you want to chill out , the reception area with 24hr bar , pool table and fuse...

We stayed for 4 nights and were extremely delighted with the standards of the reception and housekeeping staff. The staff were very helpful in providing directions and recommendation. The room was huge and very clean.

Stayed here for 2 nights fri/sat booked a penta plus room which was very spacious :) staff were very polite, friendly and very helpful. It's great that they have smoking rooms :) stayed at the front of the hotel in room 614 and the noise didn't really bother us not as loud as we expected. Only downside is that the... More

Great welcome by the reception crew and the bar staff, in the spacious ground floor. Good customer service, in a quirky spacious area, with drinks prices one would anticipate. The room was basic and tired, needed redecoration (room 104) chips, missing paint, missing ceiling tile exposing wiring, air con that didn't function correctly. But for the price (£114) what can...

What a lovely place. We all arrived and were quickly checked into our rooms, and lovely they were too. We've stayed in many hotels and this definitely ranks in some of the best. We had a huge buffet for dinner that was just lovely, and plenty of it too. The bar was also part of reception which is different, and... More

I booked a room with Penta. Considering the price (£200 + in Reading) I was expecting a relatively comfortable stay. Unfortunately, it was ruined by being placed on a smoking floor. At no time was I told that this would be the case until arriving at the hotel. The room and corridor smelled disgusting and as my room was facing... More

After 2014's stay with our placement on a floor occupied by/frequented by noisy, inconsiderate, youthful guests, we still risked another week-ender at around the sme time as before in 2015. This year, we were not disappointed. Our floor was calm and quiet. Thus, we were extra-calm and extra-comfortable. The breakfast is of decent value and the room is of decent... More
