I stayed in the Crescent Hotel for 2 nights recently when I had to stay in Reading due to an interview. I had booked this hotel looking a cheap overnight stay and started to worry after reading the reviews however when I arrived I realised I was silly to worry. For the price this hotel is perfect, a warm comfortable... More

We read the terrible reviews but had already booked for the location - a cheap stay whilst working locally for 2 days. Arrived late, fearing the worst. The room was very pleasant, clean, all necessary comforts. No complaints, basic breakfast is good value, location is great for walking into town. Would stay again if working in the area.

Never never book a stay here. The management are a complete rip off, they are extremely unprofessional & rude. Once they have your card against a booking be prepared for them to take the money from your account even when you have tried to cancel. When tried to call them to cancel, came up against a very slurred voiced man... More

I'm sat in my room at the crescent hotel with my friend for ny, we want to point out we paid 48£ for this hotel and couldn't fault it really!! Our room was clean apart from a few marks on the wall but these don't affect our stay at all. Our beds have no bugs and we were politely welcomed... More

not sure why my original review of this hotel has been removed. Stayed there recently on a business trip to reading. the place is an absolute dump that doesn't warrant even a 1 star. The room was so shabby and unkempt I couldn't believe it when I arrived. I was genuinely afraid about getting into bed for fear of being... More

Stayed there recently on a business trip to reading. The room photos must have been taken years ago. This place is awful. The staff are friendly and welcoming but the quality of the rooms are beyond dreadful. Breakfast was good - it was included in my room price (67.95 for a twin en suite) which is a positive, but, seriously,... More

Arriving in town late in the dark with no accommodation booked we were desperate to find a bed for the night. The front desk should have set us running but we paid our £50 and went upstairs where the alarm bells were ringing off the hook! It stank! Maybe due to the fire alarm being covered over by a shower... More

In 40 years I havent stayed in a non-ensuite room, but I did here. And the loo wasnt even close but well down the corridor. It did say so on the web site but I didn't look for it. Breakfast ends at 8:30 and they didnt tell me when I checked in so I missed breakfast. Hotel generally looked un... More
