Situated right in the heart of Reading... This hotel is ideal for the Oracle Centre and the City shops and night life. The hotel has a restaurant and bar area but I didn't use them because it was so close to town. My room did feel like it needed a little face lift especially the bathroom and I can't begin... More

Stayed here on business and have stayed in several Quality hotels without issue unfortunately this one was more 'interesting'. The car park is very snug and was not fun to park in. Staff were very helpful and friendly and offered to carry my bag but as I was on the first floor I carried it myself. The room had two... More

First impressions were not great. The whole front facade of the hotel was obscured by scaffolding and plastic sheeting. Also, had not realised when making the booking that the hotel was situated above an Indian Restaurant. My room was on the 2nd floor and there was no lift. So not too happy about that. Another disappointment was that WiFi was... More

A last minute booking as we fancied a weekend away. Very welcoming receptionist, everything was very clean and tidy. Room was nice and comfortable. Lovely breakfast. Would definately stay here again. Great location near to the shops, pubs and restaurants and the bonus of free parking.

We got a room above the Curry Restaurant and having looked at other reviews expected a noisy stay, maybe we were lucky, but a Saturday night and no undue noise! Our room was a very good size, the only downside was that it was too hot and that's with the radiator off. Worth it if you can get a "late"... More

So I'm here on business, so I have to be here. Checking in was easy, and because I left my workplace early, I checked in early, which was good. The walk to my room on the 2nd floor was not luggage friendly as there was no lift, meaning I had to carry it to the second floor. Ok so the... More

From the strong smell of paint in the bathroom to the bare live wires sticking out of the wall, this place was truly a marvel. The lift-less, bright reception with sullen staff, the wondrous winding corridors to your small, strangely-shaped room containing an old storage heater and an electric fan (for all types of weather). The view from our window... More

Appreciating the location is good and price relatively cheap, I wish I'd paid more and stayed at a nicer hotel. The room I stayed in 305 is in need of modernisation and smells of stale cigarette smoke. Sound proofing does not work at all as there was a bird on the roof crying out all night that kept us awake.... More
