Firstly I stayed at the Abbey House Hotel for 3 nights due to its close proximity to the recording studio that I was performing at. It has ample free parking and is in a great location - The hotel is only a short 5min drive away from Reading town centre/ Oracle shopping complex which is very convenient as loads of... More

Last minute booking so not a lot of choice. A little pricy but it's Reading so they take your pants down for fun! Anyway, nice room with a half decent bathroom good wifi and they even have usb plug sockets so they aren't just milking the cow for every drop. Really really good nights sleep just nothing bad to say... More

It was a great place to stay. Friendly and always helpful staff, family atmosphere, nice, clean and cosy rooms. Delicious food :) This hotel's location is quite close to the city center (walking distance). We are so coming back there when we're in the UK.

If you are looking for a friendly hotel with excellent attentive service for a business trip to Reading you need look no further - forget the big premier express chains, you'll be well looked after at the Abbey House Hotel. My room was clean and tidy with a desk, tea-making facilities and en-suite shower. Excellent power-shower which is a real... More

My husband and i came to Reading to settle our son into university and we stayed in this hotel. All of the staff were very sweet and helpful, the hotel is very quaint and smells good inside, and is very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is very good quality and home cooked. I would stay here again.

What a place! The man on reception was so friendly and nothing was too much trouble, we even got a room upgrade for free! Exceptional! The room was top quality and spacious and very clean. It was easy to get in and out of the hotel, with use of a card key, and it was only a 15 minutes from... More

Everything about my stay at the Abbey House Hotel was great. We didn't arrive until 1am which was no bother at all. The room was clean and fresh. Breakfast was served at whatever time we liked and was free of charge. We received top class customer service the whole time. I will definitely be staying here again and can't recommend... More

I went to England for the first time in August of 2012. I didn't have a lot of money for a fancy hotel. We were going to see The Cure at The Reading Festival so we thought we would stay in Reading then rent a car and drive to London. It worked out perfectly! We stayed here. Although my knees... More
