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

Great location, staff were very friendly, Very clean and tidy, fantastic large bed which was very comfortable. Good that you can leave your luggage there free of charge, leaving more time to do enjoy the day after check out. Will certainly be staying here again.

I want to start this review by commending the Pentahotel for their wonderful pets welcome policy and for the fantastic hospitality they gave to our two dogs, Penny and Aggie. If you need to be in the centre of Reading and have a fur-baby then you couldn't pick a better place to stay in terms of friendliness. The new manager... More

Room was clean and quiet, and having an opening window was a nice feature. Price-wise it was good value with free late check-out. The hotel had a very nice lounge area with late bar and pool table (although we didn't get to try the pool table). The location was very central and within an easy walk of the main railway... More

The room appeared to be well appointed and tastefully decorated. Excellent bed and a very good shower. However, the noise level from the road was unacceptable and I was unable to get to sleep for several hours. The lift could also be heard. The room (319) needs to be sound insulated as a matter of urgency. Went to breakfast at... More
