Every time I visit the Penta in Reading the elevators are out. When you're given a room on the 4th floor, you're forced to use the "staff" lifts which is less than pleasant. In addition, the heater was broke in both rooms that we had this visit. The hotel lobby, service, bar and breakfast are nice, however, it seems the... More

I like the Pentahotel very much, stay was pleasant - but one thing: Free Wifi just wasn't working: i was able to connect but i've never made it to the welcome screen where i could login. I'm sure there were far too much people logged in ...

Room was clean, however there was a plastic bag on the fire alarm system! Also it was a uncomfortable nights sleep as the air con only blew out hot air!! We stayed as part of a large party for a function and our other guests also had the same problem with the temperature of the room.

Enjoyable stay, with excellent facilities; room, shower, TV, bar etc. would def return. Only gripe is the free WiFi is pretty shocking and had to switch it off and use 3G to get any work done. Might be worth packing a LAN cable as there was a port in the room (I didn't have one)

Generally a good experience with a decent sized room and king sized bed. The room was a little too warm and the air con didn't go below 18 degrees which wasn't cool enough. There was a window which I assume was a fire escape which I couldn't open (good job no fire then!) Reception should carry a map of where... More

We had a nice stay here and the room was very comfortable. My only issues were that the security is very poor, anyone can come and go in the hotel and lifts. The temperature in the hotel was very warm, uncomfortably so we needed the room window open all night
