What a gem of a place staff so friendly and helpful. I was given a room in the building at the back of the hotel. Very clean comfortable and modern, free wifi worked well. Meals at the bar were good, I didn't try breakfast I bought my own as there was a fridge and microwave in the room really handy.... More

Hillingdon Prince was a major disappointment. Better name would be Hillingdon Tramp. The moment of entering through the front door, I realized I had made a bad choice. Dirty carpets and faded decor. I requested a room change within 30 seconds of being shown my room – temperature was tropical with no thermostat and the radiator control was broken. We... More

Nice spacious room. Ideal for contactors working in city centre. Use of a gym is available. Plenty of free parking in hotel grounds. Staff really friendly and helpful. Reasonably priced but a lot cheaper at weekends.

I have actually stayed here twice. The first time was a complete disaster (but please read to the end) - we checked in quite late at night (there is a 24 hour check in service so this shouldn't have been a problem). We walked into the room and immediately left as we thought someone was in the bed - it... More

2nd time staying here as it is really well placed to visit my son at Reading Uni. 1st time we stayed in a family room with breakfast & it was ok. 2nd time stayed in a double room in the annexe on the car park. It is basic & is ideal for an overnight stay with no frills but no... More

Well, how to start.....foul, disgusting and sleazy hostel. that about sums it up....but i will try to be fair:- when I was led (across two carparks) to the annex I passed a smelly little gym before arriving at my room - on opening the door I was disgusted. I think it was the smell that offended first before the 'ambience'... More

Positives - The hotel is cheap and is probably the cheapest and best placed in Reading. They have a big car park. Breakfast is reasonably priced. Close to University of Reading Campus. However, this hotel is in serious need (serious!) of TLC. The rooms/decor is incredibly outdated. It's like staying with your elderly grandmother but before the smoking ban and... More

katy b, General Manager at Hillingdon Prince Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for taking time to review our hotel. I note from your booking that your reservation was for a budget room, these clearly state that they are yet to be refurbished. All standard rooms have been decorated and we now have many club rooms that are newly decorated and also have brand new bathrooms. The difference in price is... More
