Right in the centre, great location. Staff were very well trained and very friendly and helpful. The room was immaculate and well laid out. The bar was busy but the staff coped well and no one waited long. Thank you for a good experience.

After a long summer of work and stress I thought I would let myself have a little 'luxury' and book a hotel slightly up the scale rather than the middle. The first impression is good, the reception is clean but be warned, the doors are quite small so if you are one person with two bags you might struggle. Check... More

We stayed here with a large party, after a trip to Highclere Castle. I was very pleasantly surprised - we were served a lovely evening meal - lovely homemade soup, mains of chicken, homemade salmon fishcakes and a pasta dish and a delicious sweet with plenty of fresh fruit. Breakfast next day was of excellent standard, lots of choice and... More

Had visited this hotel twice while on business and had a very good stay on both counts. 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
