Booked into this hotel for one night. Reasonable price but food wasn't great and a bit of a limited menu. Breakfast was just ok really as only just warm but enough choice and coffee was good. Our room was standard double nit big bed like premier inns and almost fell out of it twice. Room was far to warm even... More

This hotel wasn't good. The shower leaked, the toilet didn't flush properly and took ages to fill up. The bedspread was torn, the window wouldn't open properly and the lighting in the room was very poor. Breakfast is served on a sunday 08.00-10.00, we went down just after 08.30, there were not cleared tables,it took the staff ages to clear... More

There is a reason that this place is ranked on Tripadvisor as 26th out of 32 hotels in Reading. I thought as I emerged from the dribbly shower having been hugged by the plastic shower curtain, 'this place would be okay if it was in Moscow or Kinshasa'. But in Reading, albeit a place whose charms are elusive, one optimistically... More

On arrival the hotel looked in a poor state of repair. Reception area clean and bright.Check in was very smooth. Directed to our double room on 2nd floor. Unfortunatley the same couldnt be said for our room. On opening the door to our non smoking room we were hit with the smell of stale cigarette smoke and on opening the... More

I have to say I stayed in lots of hotels but this hotel has to be the filthiest . The throw on the bed had bodily fluids , I could not even touch the shower curtain with black mould and god knows what.it was noisy with doors banging and thin Walls . The breakfast was worse if you could believe... More

The hotel is tired at best. Sparse Old fashioned bedroom furniture, bedside table had cigarette burns, poor lighting, 1980's T.V . No hot water in shower at night and whilst I thought my luck was in because the shower ran warm in the morning this was short lived as the tap the fell off the wall. Towels old and greying.... More

I arrived at this hotel later in the evening (around 8pm), and the car park was almost full - full of work vans, lots of them - so I can't describe it as a business person's hotel, more of a workman's hotel. Check-in was OK, no airs or graces, I had to ask about food times which is normally a... More

After reading reviews on trip advisor I was expecting the worst place ever. However, when we got there i was pleasantly surprised by the room being quite clean and pleasant. Our room had a really old tv which was strange because the room next door had a large flatscreen. There were toiletries in the bathroom and the room was cleaned... More

I like to give hotels the benefit of the doubt, not everything can be perfect however, I have to be honest. I booked the lawn hotel but they put me in their sister hotel Park side. On arrival there were groups hanging outside drinking and smoking on the entrance steps, not nice, there is no outside seating. The fire alarm... More

Not sure about this hotel, it's obviously fairly new but despite that has no aircon in the rooms. There are no brochures about the hotel anywhere in the room or reception, not even breakfast, meal times etc. Some people there weren't happy as on some sites it's listed has having a leisure centre, which if your idea of leisure is...
