Being very close to the Reading Station( about a minutes walk) means you a re never far from going over to London City and other places for a good sight see. The rooms are standard and nothing really fancy. The breakfast and food... More

My partner & I stayed here for one night, we booked through late rooms and got a good deal so the hotel was well worth it. I think if we had paid full price I would have been disappointed, in our room the bathroom door didn't shut & the shower cubicle door opened inwards. My 6ft boyfriend could only just... More

The hotel is round the corner to the station and the the town centre is a stones throw away. Excellent location! Rooms: The beds are a nice size, too big for single but not quite a double. The toilet and bathroom in my room were separate l. One bed was very close to the bathroom so slighty awkward to go... More

We chose the Novotel because it was close to Reading station where we were being picked up for a wedding and I didn't want to walk far in somewhat inappropriate shoes! Check in was super fast and efficient. We initially found getting around the hotel a little tricky as you need to use your room key to operate the lifts... More
