This hotel is right in the centre of Reading close to the railway station. It is a modern hotel with limited restaurant facilities but not really needed in the city centre. Rooms are pretty standard and basic but have all amenities with the 'pod' bathroom which has a large powerful shower but no bath. Toiletries are combined soap. and shampoo... More

We stayed here for one night with a group of friends. The staff couldn't do enough for us; very friendly and super helpful. Given the hotel was fully booked for the half marathon they never seemed flustered or rushing. Every time we walked through reception they stopped to say hello and ask if we needed anything. They even lent us... More

Never stayed in an ibis hotel before so here goes. It is really close to Reading main rail station, or you can drive and stay at a grotty looking NCP car park behind the hotel which I did as I had lots of kit to take to my job, the hotel can validate for cheap parking £12 a day instead... More

Stayed here for one night to go to the match at the Madjeski stadium. No car park, but multi storey round corner. Reduction given. Good location as appears to be on the main road in Reading. Only a minutes walk from the main shopping area. 5 minutes walk from the train station. Good reception and easy check in. Room was... More

This hotel was booked by a friend as we were celebrating in Reading. Very friendly staff. Nice room with a good amount of space and once you overcome the oddity of the bathroom "cubicle" inside your own room, it was well presented. Yes, it's all self contained, but was bizarre as never seen before. Wish I had taken a picture... More

Arrive by train and with no luggage and you will be OK. Arrive by car and want to leave your car in a place you feel is safe then forget it. There is no drop off point if you have lots of luggage and the street on which this is located is so restricted for access by car then it's... More

Dear Sir, Thank you for taking the time to let us know your concerns. The Hotel is not responsible for the road layout in Reading or the one way restrictions the council has chosen to apply.
