The rooms at the Holiday Inn are comfortable. They offer a basic level of service for a high price. The food wasn't very good, in fact just below average and very expensive. The hotel had no lift and my room card kept not working and I would have to travel back to reception to have it fixed.

Room was ok. staff were great and happily provided us with a taxi service to the festival grounds. Breakfast was very good though and was included in the price... More

We stayed here for 1 night for Reading Festival, given that the hotel was full due to this we absolutely felt we were valued guests. Customer service was friendly & excellent, room was spotless and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely recommend.
