Not giving this place "excellent" rating as the shower was a bit dodgy, but everything else was great. The staff were super friendly and it's all you want. We booked late and the room price was not too bad, it's near to the town centre and train station. The bed and pillows were perfectly comfortable, and there's a nice tv... More

We stayed for just the one night. The hotel Looks fairly new and was very modern and trendy. The room itself was average in size but plenty for a few nights. Didn't stay for the breakfast. Very friendly staff. Would happily stay again. Great location.

We stayed at this property for two nights after arriving from Heathrow. The bus from Heathrow stops just around the corner at the Reading Train Station. The hotel is a block away from the major shopping mall and shopping Centre The Oracle. The hotel itself felt new and clean and the hotel decor reflects this. The bathroom was a capsule... More

I spent two nights here, nothing to complain about. The room was of average size, with the expected amenities. Pretty fast internet. The hotel is located just a short walk from the Reading train station, which made it extremely convenient. It was also a short walk from the Oracle shopping center, as well as to many pubs and restaurants. I... More

This is a 5 minute walk from Reading Station and is a good budget offer if booked far enough in advance. The location is the centre of town and so close to a huge number of cafes, bars, and shops. The room is rather small for two people but great for a solo stay. The bed is incredibly comfortable with... More

Located just minutes away from Reading train station and the main shopping/restaurants area in Reading we found this hotel to meet our needs perfectly well. Rooms were spacious and had basic facilities (no safe, no posh toiletries). Bathroom was a decent size and was clean and functional. Wifi worked ok although it seemed to drop after a few minutes of... More

Booked for being in centre of Reading, surrounded by lots of good restaurants and close to Oracle Shopping Centre. Reserved a newly renovated room, which was very good, free wifi and 32in flat screen TV. Tea and coffee making facilities and King Sized bed. Food can be ordered and taken to room, also small bar close to Reception.

The hotel was as expected. The beds were standard but left me uncomfortable- very difficult to sleep on. No views, small rooms and small bathroom. Only real positive is the location- shops were within a close vicinity. Staff did not make an effort to welcome people. Very standard. Price was not anything special as for £15 more I could have...
