My friend and I stayed here during the weekend of Reading Festival to avoid a wet and muddy sleep. We knew the hotel was of a good standard when we booked but we were even more surprised when we arrived, was slightly difficult to get to through the city but we're not from Reading so knew we'd have a few...

I have stayed in the Pentahotel Reading many times as the location is great for my purposes. The fact that there are smoking rooms available is also a big plus for me. The location, next to a busy road, can be disturbing at night if you leave the window open so I was happy to find the cooling system working... More

Great hotel in the centre of Reading. Really good sized modern rooms and massive king sized bed. Only issues I had were the pillows were way to soft for me and also the resteraunt was very expensive and service was slow. Overall would definitely stay again but would eat elsewhere.

The hotel is great, quiet and good super kingsize bed. Good quality hotel. The break fast was excellent as well. The location was ok, not really based in the old quarter, but iguess good for business.

The parking is easy to find near the hotel however it would've useful for some directions to be put near the exit of the car park to get to the hotel. Upon entering the hotel it looks much better on the inside than the outside. The reception and bar area is great and looks very modern and fun. Great places... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am sorry you found the location of the hotel difficult to find. The public car park where we organise for our guests to recieve a great discount will not allow us to put the hotel directions on, but I'm sure as you found, it was only a very short... More
