The Hotel Staff were outstanding In helpfulness and effiency. Really funky bar area. Very comfortable room with high standard of cleanliness. The only thing lacking was a mirror over the desk / dressing table. There was a big mirror on the bathroom door, but when this was shut, it is impossible to dry one's hair as there is no plug...

There was a lot to like about the Penta, but there still some rough edges at places. It's trying to be trendy, and whether it is or not, is probably a matter of taste. For me it was almost a bit too much trying and not really succeding. Service was generally very good, and the staff very friendly. Very clean,... More

Everything I needed and more for a decent work trip. Quiet and immaculate room, free wifi and good choice of breakfast food. People working there are jovial and professional. I've booked to stay again next week.

We arrived to the pounding of a bass beat in the lobby - after a long day, that did not set the evening up well. The decor is undeniably eye-catching and the room well appointed. However, the seal on the window was not efficient, giving a constant wind noise through the night. The arrangement of two duvets on the double... More

Excellent location in the centre of Reading and a few minutes walk to the Hexagon which we were visiting. Rooms are modern and minimal which does not make them very comfortable. The shower was excellent, but the bathroom lacks sound proofing which is annoying if a partner uses it during the night. The breakfast was one of the best I... More

Had a great stay here, just wish we could have used all the excellent facilities that were available....just not enough time. Will stay longer next visit! Nearby shopping centre is great too. A fantastic time!

Stayed one night and was very satisfied. Had better room and worth paying for. Breakfast was really excellent with wide choice of good food.Staff very helpful. Only one problem with loo flush in room 308 needs seeing too. Also was unable to charge bar purchases to account which was inconvenient and actually stopped me from spending more.Otherwise will stay again... More

We stayed here for one night on 20 February. For the price (we paid £59 without breakfast) we were very impressed. Good bed, hypo allergenic pillows as requested and lovely shower. Also a very good hairdryer. Toiletries were great apart from 2in1 shampoo and conditioner so if you have unruly hair like me take your own! Staff very friendly, lovely... More
