Taxi was about £12 to the festival site and bus stop up round was £1.60 to the station and then approx 1... More

Excellent stay, the hotel was clean, the bedroom clean, and the reception staff were of the highest quality. We would certainly use this hotel again when visiting Reading. The car parking is safe and secure.

We stayed for one night only and found the staff and service excellent. I rang in advance and asked if I could have a room at the back because sometime if you have one at the from overlooking the car park it can be very noisy late at night. They accommodated our request and the room allocated no. 32 was... More

Everything apart from the bathroom made our stay overnight a pleasant one. However, the bathroom seriously needs some attention to detail. Alex Polizzi would have a fit. The toilet is dirty brown soiled at the bottom and the edges of the floor really do need a scrub too as it has a grimy organgy build up of something there. A... More

Quite easy to find close to the M4 at Junct 11 and in the back yard of the The World Upside Down pub. Needs a bit of decorating to freshen it up but the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Car park was a good size so no problem parking. A very positive point was the pub close... More

Very basic and dated requires updating to the new travelodge style. New beds are comfy with a good nights sleep. Parking is on site with no charges. Staff ok. Pub next door is certainly in need of a refurb.

The hotel itself smelt like a charity shop bordering on an old peoples home. I should have stayed for 4 nights but only managed 3. The beds are nice and new, but it is very plain and boring. The bathrooms have not been updated. Because Ascot was on I had to pay £96 a night as well..............

I have stayed at other Travelodge hotels before but was disappointed with this one. The corridors had a 'fusty' smell. The rooms were clean and spacious. The towels were old and had very bad wear and tear. There wasn't any bath mats to step on out of the shower. There is very little near to the hotel. On my list... More

We chose this Travelodge because of four things: - Good price on the website - Only 5 minutes away from the M4 - Family room for 4 - Free parking We arranged to go to the Harry Potter Studios the following morning, therefore staying here was a break in travelling from South Wales. The Harry Potter Studios was only about... More
