Decided we needed some time away together me and Tollski thought we might aswell drop some dolla on a nice weekend away. Tollbridge was particlarly happy with the helpfulness of the staff as they took our bags from the car to room. The room was a delight and bathroom left impeccibly. A lot of average reviews for this hotel but... More

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

Avoid at all costs! The hotel is very dated, the man on the reception was unhelpful when we arrived and the electric shower leaks water from inside the shower unit!! Very noisy all night and in the early hours of the morning meaning I couldn't even get a decent nights sleep! In 12 years working away this is the worst... More

Had to stop over in reading and once again this was the only hotel that was available near the centre. The room I had was pleasant. It was nothing more than average but clean and comfortable. However, the bathroom was small. Is good for what it is which is a cheap hotel near the centre
