was good apart from no double glazing so was loud in our room. The duvet wasn't a very nice quality and the pillows were too soft! Drinks where very overpriced in the bar but it was a good atmosphere and a nice walk to town

Great hotel, and the staff as always very helpful and professional. The food was great and the Gym facilities are some of the best in the Reading hotel hotels. The only gripe is that one of the lifts is (still) broken the long wait to get to and from your room is annoying unless you're on the first few floors... More

Great staff, very friendly and helpful. Plenty of choice at breakfast. Room was comfortable and well equipped. The only slight disappointment was the manky kettle in the room (but maybe I'm just a bit of a kettle snob?). Good location too, right in the centre of Reading but easy road and rail access.

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
