Arriving at the Pentahotel after an annoying bus ride from Heathrow and being greeted by the funky (in a good way) and subdued atmosphere of the lobby immediately took away the stress of travel, especially after a couple pints from the lobby bar! While the staff were great and helpful (returning my wife's purse immediately because they remembered our rm... More

Clean, modern hotel in a fantastic location. This hotel would suit business travellers, couples and families. Rooms decorated to a high spec and reception/bar area could not be faulted. Very close to the shopping centre with a huge choice of restaurants and bars. A very enjoyable trip and I would recommend this hotel highly.

Carpets are all filthy, lifts are very slow, beds are nice and comfortable but with mean broken down pillows. Shower is great but didn't much like the anticeptic products. Great location, nice bar. Chaotic at breakfast but very nice food once you could actually get something to eat.

We were surprised by the hotel, lovely big bar area and lounge, with lots of comfy chairs and just looked really nice on first impression. Myself and friends stayed just one night for a hen do, check in was quick and easy, the room was nice and specious and the beds comfortable. Some of us sat in the bar until... More

We stayed here for the second time and had a very good stay in one of the Penta 'Plus' rooms. The room was well equipped and tidy. The 'king bed' was more like a huge superking and totally amazing (basically two generous single beds put together). The rainfall shower was also great with plenty of hot water and good water...

Located very central to the shops. A great vast lobby and lounge area to sit back and relax. The restaurant was amazing and ambient. The corn fed chicken amazing!! Breakfast a huge Penta plus. Great friendly staff and well appointed rooms with plenty Penta gadgets. Great hotel and back again soon.

Arrived around 6pm, reception looked like a bar. Very frosty staff. No attempt to make any conversation. Enjoyed choice at breakfast. Room very clean overlooking a noisy road though. Shower no bath. Huge bed. Mixed feelings about this hotel just didn't wow me.

Visited this hotel on two occasion and is a personal favourite, located only 5 minutes away from the town centre. Hotel itself is very stylish, I must admit parking is the only drawback there is a overnight car park which can amount to about £15 a day.

Booked to stay just one night, easy to find not quite sure about reception area as it is just a bar/ club type entrance so not a typical hotel reception. Staff very friendly, all basic amenities, tea/coffee etc in room. Bathroom really good, comfy beds and quiet a/c. Room décor totally hideous, a mix of floral, stripes, spots, mirrors, contemporary,... More

We stayed at the Pentahotel on July 19th so that we could attend a local wedding and reception. The hotel we ideally situated for travel around Reading and the room was good value for money, exceeding our expectations. We welcomed the fresh, calm and most importantly, cool room, that greeted us when we returned from the function, hot, tired and... More
