Had a great stay. Room was amazing - loved the huge bed and free movies. Could have more choice on room service menu and an iron and mini bar in the room would have been handy. We will definitely be back

Nice staff and rooms are bland but clean. Great location. Wifi is sloooooow and it is a pain to log in so often. Out of frustration I bought the broadband login bit is was not clear at all where to input this so it was a complete waste of money which I was kind enough to be refunded. I travel... More

stayed over night. The hotel in nice with big rooms, panky design. Parking: The hotel refers to near by parking a few minutes away and provide you with discount voucher, over night parking costs £5. The only comment I have is that the hotel is located next to A329 road and you can hear the cars.

It is too darn hot in the building. I would have enjoyed it fully with an ac or comfortable temperature in the elevator. Other than that I enjoy the penta but might very well choose another hotel due to the heating issue.

Great value and the service was very good. Not the nicest part of town but still very close to the city centre. Rooms were good condition. Didnt eat as lots of restaurants nearby. Will go back again without doubt.

This is a good hotel for business use. Food is good and the rooms are of the standard you would expect for the money. Staying for business is ok but would not use it for anything else. Beds are ok and the rooms are a decent size. It has a small bar that is fine for meeting colleagues and relaxing... More

I stayed here the night before I was running a breakfast conference for a client. The hotel has a nice ambiance and the rooms are spacious. It wasn't ideal to hold a conference though as the foyer area is extremely dark and the wifi was not also working in the conference room...not great when needed for the presentation to run.

Seems to be a shortage of staff. We had to look and wait for staff when looking for food etc. Staff were pleasant and helpful when we found them but we expected better service.. Wifi service was poor especially as this was a business trip

When reading some of the reviews below I wondered if I had perhaps stayed in a different hotel to the one visited last week. The last time I was in Reading was 8 years ago and what a transformation the hotel has had from its previous life as the Renaissance. A now ‘hip’ feel embraces you when you walk through... More

Thank you very much for your review. I was delighted to read about how much you enjoyed your stay. Apologies for the slight delay on drinks. As suggested we will indeed look into this as a team. It must have been a very rare moment when one of the team may have been called away to assist another guest. Great... More
