I have stayed here twice and found the staff to be very helpful and polite. The rooms are an adequate size. The hotel is in a great location. The breakfast is ample. I would stay here again. One tip is to park at the Queens Road car park and get a discounted ticket from reception. Parking costs £6. DO NOT... More

Whilst not my favourite hotel in the Mercure group, it's nice to see they've tidied the public areas of this hotel up since my last review. Anna on reception provided a really nice welcome and looked after me when I was allocated a twin and returned to reception asking for a double bedded room. Her friendly smile and service are... More

It's clean (ish) - just don't look at the taps around the sink. The room was tiny, it was absolutely boiling, the pillows were uncomfortable and the bathroom was so small that I pretty much had to climb over the toilet to get out of the bathtub - unclear why a walk in shower hadn't been fitted instead. Did not... More

Stayed here on business with two colleagues last night as the main hotel chains were either full or overpriced. The staff were helpful and friendly, the bar area was small but adequate for a couple of drinks after our drive down from the Midlands. Rooms were a decent size and the bathrooms were fantastic, very modern and spacious, although they... More

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
