We could not have been happier with our choice of The Forbury for our wedding reception. The staff here are second to none and made us feel very welcome, and even smiled politely when our timings changed by over an hour! The meal was gorgeous (scallops, beef Wellington, lemon assiette, cheese) and the service was seamless. All topped off by... More

We chose to have the champagne served with the evening meal . The room was very well furnished. Lovely furniture, rugs, wall... More

Had a last minute night away here. We had a dinner, bed & breakfast package, with a lovely bonus of room upgrade. Spotlessly clean, fabulous friendly staff & very enjoyable good. The hotel has a lovely atmosphere, much inspired by the manager I suspect. A really lovely relaxing break, definitely will book again.

I treated my partner to a night away at The Forbury Hotel for her birthday and it was just perfect. I managed to book a package including a bottle of champagne in the room, chocolates, dinner for us and a night. At just shy of £300 it was worth every penny. Upon arrival, the receptionist/concierge parked the car and gave... More

Loved this hotel which is conveniently located in the center of Reading. The rooms are really nice, and large for a European hotel. The bathroom was very, very nice with a beautiful soaking tub and fantastic shower.

I had another enjoyable stay at what is probably the best hotel in Reading. Lovely room with B&O TV and Hifi system. Attention to detail everywhere. Lovely comfortable bed which I slept very well in. The ambience of this hotel is wonderful and if you need to stay in Reading I thoroughly recommend it.
