Awful hotel, very old interior, bad experience with staff, will not come back here and absolutely do not recommend this place. No value for money. Food is mediocre, rooms substandard and hallways look like mental institution, also smell like spiritus... Unfriendly personell...

Good location for the centre of Reading - lots of places to eat, near to the canal front restaurants and pubs. Room I was in looked like it had been refurbished recently. Bed very comfortable and room was quiet (I asked in advance for a quiet room), if a bit dark (small window, looking inwards across a small open space).... More

Stayed here on business for four nights and frankly wished that I hadn't. Not that the hotel is bad its just not a 'business' hotel and this was further proved by the speed (or lack of) of the WIFI available throughout. I found it easier and quicker to use one that was available from one of the coffee shops located... More

Stayed here for 2 consecutive weeks in August. The first room I had (417) was spacious, decorated to a good standard. The floor however is something else, as it must slope nearly 6 inches down towards the bathroom from where the bed is! That said, this is the oldeest building in Reading so it is to be expected that not... More

Stay here quite a bit, price can vary considerable, so book ahead. This is right in the centre of Reading so ideal for any activities. Park in the Oracle shopping centre which is cheap after 1800 and before 0800. Loads of choice in the Oracle for food etc. Ask for a high room and if you can avoid a room... More

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
