Having arranged a DJ gig in Reading, and given the fact that the first train to London left rather late as it was a Sunday, I decided to book a room at Crescent Hotel for my night stay, taking into consideration the low booking price with comparison to the lot in and around the city. The room was just OK,... More

What can I say... think of Fawlty Towers?? I would say the family who own this needs to plough a bit of money into re-vamping it, might seem harsh, but stop 'playing' at owning a hotel. We stayed for two nights during the RWC 2015. The main reason we chose this hotel was because it had its own carpark, which... More

We stayed here one night because there was a mistake with another booking, and this place was actually more expensive than the better place we eventually went to, we were charged 110£ for the crescent hotel. They had remodeled the bathroom but the water leaked out of the shower, the beds were so old that we could feel the springs,... More

I booked this hotel for my husband and his colleague, for a one night stop over whilst in work. I booked it through booking.com, and for the first and last time forgot to read reviews! The night before they left they was looking up the address and came across the reviews. As you can imagine they was horrified, and soon... More

Staff are so nice. That's the only good point about the hotel. It's shockin, shower was dirty, window didn't close, window was black with dirt. Kettle was broken, room was freezing because the window didn't close. There was a massive yellow stain on one of my towels, rotten. The drains didn't suck the water down quick enough. I paid nearly... More

Please avoid this hotel. This establishment, is unclean, outdated, and not worthy of a star rating. In fact if rating by another means, I would say that the Crescent Hotel is rated as 5 Bins (trash cans) out off 5. I would not let my worst enemy stay here. This place should be closed down immediately; and for those who... More

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.
