Enjoyed a very nice weekend at The George Hotel in Reading recently. The room was very spacious and had all the facilities l needed. It is located right in the Main Shopping Area so in a very good place to stay. The en-suite was very nice and the breakfast was sufficient.

The staff immediately addressed the situation by providing us with an alternative at no additional cost or effort to us! I have to specifically point out... More
