The rooms are small and basic but the beds are comfortable and the rooms quite habitable. The breakfast is plentiful and delicious with a great variety of tasty food. WIFI is free and has a decent speed... More

Parking is discounted £10 per 24 Hrs and right behind the hotel, which is very good for the city centre. Your are right in the centre so evenings are good with lots of places to... More

I stayed on business at this hotel for 2 nights, genuinely worst experience I've ever had. First night I barely got any sleep due to my room being located next to the central waste system so could continuously hear the pipes, I complained about this in the morning and granted they relocated me with no problems or fuss. However despite... More

I've been staying at this hotel, on business, for than a year. For its price per room and its location, the hotel is very good value especially if you book in advance. More importantly the staff are very positive, polite and helpful. After 200+ nights in most hotels, you would expect to encounter at least one negative experience with a... More

Had booked a twin room with a friend of mine. We arrived in reading at 2 am. Tired from hours of flying all we wanted was to sleep. Got to the hotel and were greeted by the fact that the computer had made an error whilst we booked the room and then had overbooked so the room was not available.... More

I regularly stay at this hotel to visit friends and it really is in a great location. It's right in the town ce ntre, so handy for meeting friends in one of the nearby pubs, shops or clubs. However because of its location, it can be a little noisy on the lower floors so ask for a higher one if... More
