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 hotel is advertised as located in the oldest building in Reading, And this comes with the few advantages and all of the disadvantages. So if you want to take a journey back in time that's the place to do it. It certainly has a "charm" of an old place but also lacks some of the modern day facilities like... More

What a great experience we have just had staying at this hotel! There was an issue on arrival with housekeeping not being able to make additional bed up in our room – no problem! 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

Stayed here on a business trip and expected more - based on the price. The old building definitely has character, but that's it! The decor is very tired.. The room was small and very basic and the bath / shower extremely difficult to get into as you had to literally climb over the toilet... Bar / restaurant quite tatty, but... More

This is the worst MERCURE hotel I have ever been. Tiny and DIRTY room, old building and the staff is AWFUL. The bar-restaurant is poor. I am so disappointed . But the most important problem is that there is no lift in the hotel and most rooms take a long walk to get. The George Hotel dosen't deserve 3 stars.... More
