Wow, my boyfriend booked this hotel as a surprise for me recently and l thought it was wonderful. The hotel is very funky and the beds were huge and very comfortable. I have been reading the reviews on trip adviser before writing this and l am bit surprised. We both really enjoyed our stay and one member of staff called... More

I was very disappointed with my stay at Pentahotel, so much so that after two nights I changed hotels for the remainder of my business trip. It got off to a bad start with a very long wait to check in and unfriendly reception staff. The room overlooked the main road and was thus extremely noisy throughout the night due... More

I’m incredibly lucky to have the luxury of staying here on a regular basis, the rooms are always well furnished and clean with the biggest beds ever. It has amazing decor, especially the massive glitter ball......just the right side of cool without being pretentious. Bedrooms are always well equipped and comfy with fab toiletries. Its always a pleasure to stay... More

I will reiterate a lot of the comments. One of the reviewers had said that one of the lifts didn't work in June, it still doesn't in October! Although it says the Wifi is free, it really isn't. 24 hour access is £9.95 a night, not really acceptable in this day and age where Wifi is a business travellers necessity.... More

Very poor value for money. One elevator out of action. Understaffed on reception desk at peak times (ie at usual check-in and check-out). I will do all I can to avoid staying at a Pentahotel again. The web site hype is not delivered. I will share this information with my colleagues, friends and family around the world. Whoever is in... More

Slow check in. Lifts and check out absolutely appalling. Air con didn't work. Iron failed to arrive. All for 140 a night. Won't be back in the near future. The worst Travelodge in the country is opposite.... It's starting to rub off...

My husband and I stay here quite regularly. It is convenient for visiting friends and family in the Reading area. As mentioned in other reviews, it is a very trendy place with a sort of 'New York Loft/ BoHo' vibe. The rooms are always clean and fresh. The staff are always friendly (I promised I would give Jasmine a nod).... More

I stayed at the Pentahotel for two nights in October 2014. From the website, the hotel looks chic and contemporary. In reality, it is little more than an old Holiday Inn-esque hotel with some neon colours added. Upon arrival, I was confused as to whether I was in the hotel reception or a nightclub, due to the dim lighting, neon... More
