What a lovely hotel to stay in. The room was clean and tidy and the shower room was spotless. The staff were polite and friendly. Before we went out for the evening we spoke to reception as the shower gel in our room was running low and straight away she went and got us some more. I can't fault the... More

The Ibis is centrally located in the heart of Reading. The train Station is a 2 min walk. Coming by car you have to use a nearby NCP car park. The reception will validate your ticket so it's only £10 rather than £20 for a days parking. The rooms are very clean, compact but with everything you need. The staff... More

Room clean and bed very comfortable. Wi-fi excellent. Hairdryer plus tea / coffee in room.

We stayed here overnight with family on a Travelstyle trip to LEGOLAND. The hotel staff were lovely and check-in dealt with very quickly. The room had everything we required and was big enough for the three beds. We had an included meal at the Novotel next door in the evening which was lovely and we were surprised how much choice...

Thought I would be getting a cheap and cheerful experience but found this hotel to be excellent. The location is just two minutes away from the train station and shops. The rooms are of a decent size and have everything you would want, including very good wifi which is f.o.c.. The bed was a good size double and serious comfy.... More

Stayed here for 1 night with partner and couple of friend, was nicely located in the middle of town within walking distance of the shops and bars. The rooms were very clean and tidy and a nice size for the night. All the staff were very polite throughout our stay. I would recommend and would stay here again

It is such a decent and nice place to stay, with close proximity to transport and shopping facilities. Right at the town centre 2 minutes walk from the Railway station and a minute walk to Broad street where all the major shops are located. Indeed this is good value for money

Stayed here for 1 night. Room was clean, staff were helpful and price very reasonable. It's very close to all amenities and a nice quiet room. Buffet breakfast was £8 each and although you can get cheaper breakfasts elsewhere we thought it perfectly adequate and convenient. Would recommend and would definitely stay here again.

i used the hotel on a business trip for a one night stay. The hotel is very convenient in the centre of town. The room was clean and tidy. It was a little cold and as much as I tried to adjust the heat, it didn't seem to work. I would recommend this hotel if you are visiting Reading.

I've stayed frequently in Ibis Reading for business over the last year. Staff are friendly, rooms are basic but clean and the beds are comfortable. Nothing to write home about, but fairly cheap and plenty of rooms!
