Stayed there on Friday, Sat nights....and like other posts said and warned it was hot, open the window the noise from the street, bars and clubs was banging. This hotel needs A/C and the ability to control it. The staff were nice, pleasant and the breakfast was fine. If I got a good nights sleep once here I probably wouldn't... More

Good points: staff are ok, and bed is comfortable Bad points: room was so hot (I knew that it wasn't air conditioned but I wasn't expecting this) that I opened the sash window wide and let in the noise from the street. The window wouldn't stay open unless rammed up to the top. It wasn't hot outside, but it was... More

Friendly no thrills, clean and tidy hotel. Good standard room with clean, working facilities. Would advise to avoid the slightly larger, Dickensian named rooms as some of these faced out onto the street below, which at certain times can be very busy. Only real gripe for me, (just a personal preference) and is with most chain owned hotels, is the... More

Checked in for 2pm into a double room, no problems at all, all details were taken care of. Staff very polite and accommodating and really looked after us. A beautiful listed building and a feel of one being part of some history. The upper rooms look recently refurbished and tastefully decorated. I must say the bed was the most comfortable... More

Check in and room allocation was fine, the room was expected, however WIFI didn't work in my room....not good when on business. At 2am, a man walked into my room while I was sleeping. Obviously, this was a shock and it transpired that reception had reallocated my room by mistake and issued him with a key card. It took a... More

This hotel claims to be within the oldest building in Reading - and it's such a shame they don't make more of it. The whole place - corridors and rooms - need some major love and attention. They could do with spending a bit of money to restore it to its former glory. My room was very dark and dingy... More

I needed somewhere to stay for my family and my two sisters families, I found this hotel online and as it was just for one night I went with the cheapest hotel I could find. I had to ring the hotel on numerous occassions for various requests (cot and early check in), each time they were very helpful and did... More
