We had a great stay. Stayed 5 nights and were upgraded to new club rooms. The staff were wonderful and it's a great place to stay for a clean, quiet and inexpensive time. Would recommend checking if your room is in budget buildings which are still being renovated or already completed ones though to avoid disappointment .

Myself and partner stayed here for 2 nights just as a getaway for the weekend and to incorporate a shopping trip for our upcoming holiday. Can't fault the place for the price, the staff are polite, friendly and very helpful! On arrival we had been upgraded to one of their new refurbed rooms in the building at the back of... More

Basic accommodation, handy for the centre of Reading, but a bit pricey for the 2star standard. Generally clean, but a bit worn in places. It's main usp has to be the kitchenette attached to the room, with a microwave and fridge - beats eating out all week.

On arrival the staff were very friendly on reception - this was the only positive .. It took about 20 mins just to find my room through busy corridors littered with building materials and people working. On arriving in my room I was shocked to discover that I had gone back to the 80's the furniture was all black and... More

Located a short bus ride with frequent service or a longer walk from Reading Centre, this hotel offered a comfortable, quiet room with good wifi and a kitchenette equipped with microwave, fridge, hotpot, and enough dishes and flatware for breakfast and lunch. There is a lounge bar with comfy chairs. Staff are friendly and helpful. Just a few minutes walk... More

utterly disappointed with this hotel. on arrival a foul smell hit you as you entered hotel, likes cats or something! Very unclean and in desperate need of upgrading.Broken blinds Venetian in rooms with TVs that didn't work. Very uncomfortable bed, ancient decor, wallpaper peeling off. Breakfast looked inedible unless you wanted to be unwell. horrendous work stay, never again.

I stayed in this hotel on a business trip. The room had everything I needed and more, it even had a microwave and fridge! Most importantly the room was clean. The staff are very helpful and friendly. I left some shoes in the hotel and they were very helpful in returning them and didn't even charge me for the postage.... More

My disabled wife and I stayed over a long weekend and we were given the most lovely double room, the staff were wonderfully friendly and the hotel was quiet, even though they were very busy.

I am all for cheap and cheerful, but this place isn't cheap! The receptionist was lovely and the room was spacious, but very rough around the edges. For example, they had literally punched a hole in the wall to put the pipes from the en-suite to the room sink - no attempt to tidy the hole up. The hotel is... More
