On a spur of the moment, I booked a room as I had a late night event to go to. Fortunately I had some time in the afternoon to enjoy it awake! Lovely room, rather warm, but the windows did not open on a street so all good. The bed was just long enough for a 6 foot man. The... More

I was invited to the Forburys Hotel, in March and in all honesty I had not heard of the hotel. On walking in the decor and atmosphere was quite striking. The friendly staff remained that way for our stay. We enjoyed a private dinner with 10 other guests and the food was exceptional and worthy of a Michelin Star. The... More

Stayed at The Forbury twice now and each time has been great! The staff are all there to help and are all kind and make you feel welcome. The hotel itself is grand and modern, it really is gorgeous. Opposite is a little park and the two times I have visited there have been events going on there! The rooms... More

A very stylish Hotel in Central Reading. We needed somewhere quiet to stay in Reading prior to a hospital Appointment early the next day. We did not dine here but the Restaurant looked comfortable and well appointed. We needed an early departure so did not take Breakfast. The room was all we hoped for, well appointed large and comfortable with... More

I recently stayed at this hotel for one night and the room I had was really very nice but it was really spoiled by a very loud fan in the bathroom that cannot be turned off. When I was shown another room it was no different, even although the room was empty, the fan still buzzed on. What a waste... More

Gorgeous room, lovely view over the park and close to town centre. The staff are just lovely. The bathroom was a very pleasant and most welcome surprise - full bath - hooray. Spotlessly clean and beautifully appointed. Highly recommended.

The best hotel in Reading. Quiet hotel, first class service, great rooms and good cocktails in the bar. The management know how to look after all your needs. Rooms are very well maintained and if you have a problem, it's solved straight away. Good for business and couples after a romantic weekend away. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Reading!

Always a big fan of Mr and Mrs Smith, a night away with the mrs and 90% of hotels on this particular Saturday being fully booked - we trusted this hotel with our night away. A pleasant place, fantastic interior, nice bose sound system with in bathroom music, great touch. No air conditioning a little disappointing for a 5* hotel... More
