Situated a short walk from the train station, The George is conveniently placed for everything in the town centre, however, this advantage also has it's drawbacks. A city centre location can be something of a double-edged sword for many hotels as can their historic standing, upon which a fair share of them trade. This place would seems to suffer and... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here from Friday night. We got a nice welcome from the lady at reception, and was advised we had been upgraded to a superior room. Once we reached our room, I was a little surprised at how 'non superior' it was. The room looked old, the bed, tv, curtains and bathroom all modern. Except the... More

Mercure George Hotel is housed in a building with 508 years of existence which gives it unique features that we need to appreciate. The hotel is situated in the center of Reading in the shopping area and a five minute walk away from the train station and the bus RailAir that make a direct link to Heathrow Airport. Surrounding the... More

Booked into this hotel following several visits to Mercure hotels in the past. This hotel provided all that I needed but as its quite quirky , floor boards creek and doors squeak! Not the best nights sleep for me. Staff however were lovely and breakfast quite acceptable.

I must echo most of what others have said, this hotel is well placed being right in Reading city centre. There are lots of stairs with narrow hallways and low ceilings, no lift, so if you have lots of luggage it could be difficult to get to your room. Saying that, a colleague of mine was given a disabled room... More

Starting with positive, the hotel is well positioned for the centre, only 5 to ten mins walk from the station, and only 2 mins from the restaurants and bars on the waterfront. It's also an old place which gives it character. Check in was fast. Unfortunately, lots of street noise until about 2 am, fire alarm went off at 4am... More

I am sorry that your stay was not up to your expectations and will personally look into comments you have made.
