Stayed here for one night on national holidays legoland break, quick check in, nice rooms, comfy beds, clean, good breakfast with lots of choice, bar prices are a bit steep, free wifi, free view TV, perfectly good hotel to stay in, child friendly, can't really fault it, except for poor view, but that can't be helped!

Stayed here for a weekend with 9 other ladies and after a bit of hassle about keys settled in for a weekend of fun! The rooms are large and comfortable with a space age bathroom and air conditioning. The staff are friendly and welcoming and very helpful. Based right in the city centre it's perfect for this kind of visit.... More

I booked a room for my Mum, who had reduced mobiity, and myself for one night. The room was well thought out for someone with disabilities and my Mum had no problems whatsoever. We used the lounge for drinks and snacks but didn't have breakfast. Ideal for the railway station and right in the centre next to the pedestrian area.... More

Comfortable and very reasonably priced hotel with friendly staff. Currently undergoing a refurbishment but this does overly impact on your stay. Powerful and hot shower. Only a couple minutes from Reading railway station.

We stayed last night as a last minute stop over as we was getting tired of driving. Got a cheap rate of £56. Check in was swift & smooth they asked us what floor we preferred we opted for the 11th floor as it is very party central & we wanted a good nights sleep. The room itself was very... More

Its cheap and cheerful and staff were lovely and friendly. The room was perfectly well appointed scandi style, shower hot and powerful, good... More

I went to Reading for a conference and stayed at this hotel for a very good price negotiated via the conference. The location is close to the train and coach station and many nice restaurants. The hotel staff is helpful, although they tend to be quite busy (which is not uncommon for an Ibis hotel anywhere).
