I booked this b and b because I couldn't find space in any of the business hotels in Reading on this visit, and wasn't sure what the place would be like but was pleasantly surprised. I also needed flexibility in my booking as I was unsure how long I would be staying, which the manageress was happy to accommodate with... More

A group of ex-student friends found the Belle Vue a good option for a one night stay in budget accommodation. It's basic, but clean and comfortable, with a decent and plentiful continental breakfast available. Our recently renovated single rooms were all a good size, with (functioning!) TVs, and tea/coffee available, Good modern showers and toilet facilities. A very friendly welcome... More

I stayed here for 2 nights in September 2013. I booked the cheapest room, which had a shared bathroom and a sink in the room. The room was tiny, in the basement and a bit grim, but for the price I was paying I didn't expect anything more. The upside was it was clean and warm, the radiator had a... More

The manager is a gossip and at every opportunity to engage in a conversation would make derogatory remarks about her clients to the extent that I even thought about changing my hotel rather than face her in the mornings. The TV did not work properly in that there were very few channels and most were in black and white and... More

Unfortunately I checked Trip Advisor before booking into Belle Vue House. It was however, very close to our friends who we were visiting. Bobbi (Landlady) seemed pleasant when introduced us to our room. The room however, as I huge disappointment. It was rather small and looked a bit dated. There was a crack in the window and the floorboards were... More

I stayed at the belle vue for approx 6 weeks 2nights a week whilst working in reading. I stayed and paid for a budget room which if I'm honest was pretty grim but where possible if there were rooms available the manager upgraded me to a higher priced room for free which were all ensuite and newly refurbished and very...

Had to come to reading for one night and for £40 I thought the Belle Vue would be adequate, but I was wrong! From the moment I walked in the door the manager would not stop complaining. Then my room...well you couldn't swing a cat in it! plaster was falling off the walls, literally - you could see bits of... More

rooms basic, and in need of refurbishment. However, very clean and pleasent stay. if you need somewhere that is cheap and cheerful to get your head down, and not too bothered about all the necessities that come with larger hotels, then i strongly reccomend this hotel.

The hotel was nice on first inspection, the landlady seemed chatty but we soon learnt she knew no boundaries. She moaned about all her guests and about how much she hated her job and went on and on about how crap her life was...all this before we even saw our room! When we went up the room was nice but...
