After booking.com confirmed a reservation and then failed to deliver (only informing me of the problem with a couple of days to go!) the manager at the Novotel reading got involved himself and found me alternative accommodation in the Ibis directly next door and part of the same group. They not only honoured the price but offered a discount for... More

We travelled from Heathrow following a long international flight. This hotel met our needs as it provided comfortable beds, and modern clean amenities. Rooms are on the small side, and would suit couples.

Came to reading for a business trip and all the other hotels were booked so Ibis had room, we chose to have breakfast as well to make it easier. The room was a good size, it was my first time in a Ibis hotel, toilets seemed like you were on a Ferry, was quite small but practical. I found the... More

Stayed for a couple of nights on business. Decent price, brilliant location and the rooms were clean and simple. It has a modern feel about it at the staff were also very pleasent and helpful. It's obviously not the Hilton. But for a couple of nights it was comfortable and quiet.

Ibis is my favourite budget brand, and my love for Ibis started at this hotel. Every visit I am still pleased with my stay, and after every visit I want to go back. The beds are soft and wonderful, the rooms have a decent size and the location is superb. The only real let-down in the hotel is the restaurant.... More
