The pictures on the website are a true reflection of the hotel - modern, clean and funky little rooms with massive bed, modern decor and an amazing shower and bath. I stop in a lot of hotels, this one is my new favourite. The little touches make the hotel - great little toiletries, deep... More

I always stay at the Penta when I travel to Reading as it's conveniently close to the city centre and also where I work if I have to go out for a meeting, otherwise I'm in the room working from there. Reception staff are always warm when I arrive to check in and the rooms are pretty spacious and have... More

I stayed here for one night in January. The room and bar was as set out in the photos on the website - very nice! The bedroom was warm and had everything you could need. Nice toiletries. The breakfast was fantastic! The staff were great. Would certainly stay here again.

Room was tired and cold and dispite having the heating on flat out it stayed that way. Bed is large and as comfortable... More

Stayed in here on Business. Should have checked on tripadvisor beforehand . Dont stay in any room ending x23-x28 as yoiu will be overlooking the adjacent dual carriageway which will wake you up at 5am. The hotel windows let noise in like they are open. AC heating thermostat not functioning. Service slow for evening meal with many options run out.... More

I have instructed our engineering team to look into why your room’s window was not sealing to the required degree. My apologies for this and sorry we didn’t get... More
