I stayed in a single room for two nights while stopping off in Reading before taking the airport bus. The hotel is very central and easy to find and walk to. You notice the quirks of this hotel immediately. To get to the room is like a mini maze, but it really adds to the atmosphere of this amazing building.... More

We were booked for just 1 night. We were pleasantly surprised as we were put in an executive room. The room was extremely spacious and clean and bright. With a complementary glass of wine for each one of us made this an experience I would like to share. Nico at the desk with his smile went over the top to... More

I was visiting Reading for the European Quarter Final, London Irish vs Edinburgh Rugby, I found the hotel through a simple google search. Normally stay in a hostel on rugby trips but this was a perfect hotel as it was right in the city centre and close to the local bars. It is a 10 minute walk from the train... More

Stayed here on my brothers stag do I organised. Found through external website, easy book. Must admit for the £40 we each paid for a single room and breakfast I was thinking something must be up but when 7 men go off on a jolly we don't care where we sleep. However it was excellent. Right in the middle of... More

Stayed two nights at the George Hotel on a business trip. Really enjoyed the stay - the hotel has a very nice, unique atmosphere. You see that it's an old building when you climb the stairs and pass the narrow corridors on the way to the room (unless you have one close to the reception, but I was in 502... More

Service minded staff, nice entre old fashion style. The room is small but comfortable and I love to stay in the middle of town. Nice walking in the mornings around the canals with view of old combined with new buildings, Walking distance to the railway stations

Had one night stay over in March. Very friendly staff, immaculately clean if a little dated overall. Not recommended unless you're able to carry cases up and down multiple flights of stairs... The bar was very relaxing, Oisin deserves a special mention for very good service.

Not a bad hotel for an overnight stay on business however with no lifts carrying my luggage to the top floor up endless stairs was not an enjoyable experience. Wouldn't recommend for a family but would suit a traveller who travels lightly. Not sure I would stay there again.
