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

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

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

This place just makes you cringe when you see it, in this case go ahead, judge by the cover. Staff aren't helpful, room cold, bed uncomfortable, breakfast, didn't even bother. I would avoid this place!

I needed to get out of London for a day or two and having never been to Reading I decided that's where I would go. I found this hotel on laterooms.com for £50. It looked very nice in the picture. I booked a double room. When I arrived, the hotel from the outside looked absolutely nothing like the pictures. I... More
