Didn't read the reviews before our visit, the hotel was as bad as it sounds on here! Reasonable price but in desperate need of a clean and a coat if paint, i don't think there has been ANY maintenance or repairs since it was built. Basil Fawlty would wince at this dive. Avoid.

The entrance as you walk in is very dated and shabby , The first thing we noticed on reaching our room was the door did not fit properly looked like it had previously been kicked off! The curtains did not fit the window properly and had about 6 inches of mold on the inside, only one plug socket in the... More

First impressions not good. Reception and corridors shabby and could do with a coat of paint (at least). However, our room was clean, the bed very comfortable and the receptionist who checked us in was pleasant and very helpful. Breakfast was good and plenty of it. One gripe we had was there was an ancient TV in the room that... More

Whilst the staff in the hotel were friendly and pleasant, the hotel is a lacking in décor and looks very dated and tired. My Bed linen was clean (the first thing I checked) and the room was also clean. However the curtains did not fit the window properly and the blind in the bathroom was disgusting. The next morning I... More

For the price you pay at Crescent hotel, you get your monies worth. The room I stayed in was neat, the bathroom was okay, everything was functioning as it should. The only problem was the very thin walls , so you could virtually hear everything your next door neighbour is doing. Apart from that, the staff were nice and helpful.... More

A lot of average reviews for this hotel but... More

We booked the crescent hotel for a weekend away in Reading. I appreciate the hotel was inexpensive and didnt have the best reviews, however i expected a habitable room. What we received was the complete oppostie and in all honesty a health risk! All of the 3 sheets on the beds had large urine staines and looked like they hadnt... More
