Service 4* Room 3* Location 3* Cleanliness 2* VFM 5* I went with one of the un-renovated rooms and was paying less than £35 a night. At that price I am not expecting much. The room does need renovating, of that there is no doubt, however it was as expected. It was big with lots of old 'Fawlty Towers' character... More

We got a great room for the (little) money we paid. The room had a kitchenette with tea and coffee making facilities as well as a hob, fridge and basic equipment. There was a table, 4 chairs as well as a desk, closet with hanging space and chest of drawers. The bed was basic but comfortable. The only downside was... More

I stayed overnight as I was visiting my son who lives in Reading. I found this hotel very reasonably priced, clean and comfortable. I was impressed as originally I booked a single room but changed plans at the last minute as I needed an extra bed for my sister. There was no charge for this. The room was bright and... More

I've stayed at this location on a couple occasions now and I think it's good value for money. Free internet, convenient though small rooms, courteous staff, good location relative to the town and free breakfast. There is also a gym which I didn't use. The hotel is not the newest that you'd find but it is workable esp. for short... More

I stayed 3 nights in this hotel, along with 2 others friends, as we were attending a conference on the university campus. The staff was really friendly and they even gave us a room next to the hotel gym after I had mentioned in an email prior to our arrival that I would like to use the gym and enquired... More

This isn't a 5 star hotel - it gets a 5 star rating for its quality vs price. I paid £160 for 3 nights in a double room, including breakfast (for one), and the hotel did everything I needed it to. The price would have been the same for 2, plus a little for an extra breakfast. Oh, and weekends... More

I would use this hotel again with no hesitation. The rooms were very spacious and having a fridge in the room became extremely useful. The bathroom may be an area of improvement as it wasnt as modern as the rest of the room and the shower wasnt very poweful however overall there is nothing bad to say about this hotel.

Two nights in a twin room. It is a very good value hotel. The room was clean, nice size room, very comfy beds and nice linen. We found the microwave and fridge in the room very handy ! Although the bathroom could benefit from a refurbishment, it didn't affect our stay at all because it was clean. The staff is... More
