We stayed here on the Sunday night after attending the reading festival. We couldn't get our keys or finalise check in until we came back from the festival (around mid-night) but at that time they had a lot of staff so they could deal with the post festival rush. The later Breakfast (to midday) and check out times (3 pm)... More

It was very convenient, close to everything. It is personally the best hotel I've ever stayed in. The breakfast buffet was marvelous. It had an extensive selection. I enjoyed my 25 minute walk to the music festival from the hotel.

Rooms very comfortable , We all slept well. Reception and bar very friendly. Big gap at the bottom of the window which let noise and draft in. Reported to staff but no repair or reply. Still we were tired from the festival so didn't cause to much of a problem . All in all a very good stay

Stayed from Thursday until Monday, and thought the hotel was really good value. Friendly service, nice rooms (modern and basic but nice decor), and very large comfortable beds. It would be good to have a mix of non feather and feather pillows though, and not just feather, as they are not that firm. The rooms were cleaned daily and towels... More

We used to live in Reading but since moving away a few years ago we've spent Reading Festival weekend in several of the town's hotels: the Ibis, the Malmaison and, this year, the Penta Hotel. We arrived on Friday afternoon at about 12.30pm. The hotel is an easy ten-minute walk from the train station and although it's not at the... More

10 minutes from the station makes it ideal for train friendly trippers. Welcoming reception area and staff. Room clean and everything you could need (except a bath i guess) including good selection of free tv. Breakfast very good. Major downside would be : only one lift working, and no clear signage to alternative stair routes

Inspecting hotels for a living I wasn't expecting a huge amount from this hotel but was really wowed by it. The hotel has clearly been recently refurbished and the rooms were well thought out, spacious and with great lighting. The bathrooms had a great rain shower, good quality bathroom amenities and automatic de-misting mirror. Whilst the views are not great... More

Great hotel for position and very friendly daytime reception staff. Breakfast was too expensive at £15 each and although they advised we could have a discount if we booked on arrival this was refused on our second night by unhelpful night receptionist.Hotel has a great boutique feel and very clean and rooms comfy with great beds. Wifi was poor unless... More
