Staff were excellent, demonstrated by a nice warm welcome and some good advice for places to go for a meal in town. Location is central and near rail station, but the area is a bit grubby and lots of buses and traffic travelling past the hotel. Parking is in an equally grubby public car park nearby that is expensive but... More

My boyfriend and I won a stay at the Malmaison Reading through work and were very much looking forward to a nice weekend away as working in the hospitality industry it is very hard to get the weekend off! The whole stay was perfect from start to end. We traveled by train which was definitely the most convenient way of... More

Really looking forward to a one night stay for a special occasion. I had chosen Malmaison as I was impressed with a previous visit in London. Unfortunately the Brasserie was a huge let down. The quality of the food was miles away from the standard that you would expect. This ruined the experience. The room was Ok, nothing to get... More

Sites like this can make it difficult to make a decision about a hotel as the solitary bad one can ruin hundreds of positive ones. This, I am pleased to say, is a glowing endorsement of a great hotel. I'd heard good things about the chain but the reality was even better than I hoped. Stunning decor, polite & helpful... More

I booked to stay at this hotel between 7th and 11th April, on business. I hoped the hotel would offer something different to the run of the mill hotel chains. I arrived and was greeted by welcoming desk assistant. She gave me my room key but then insisted I would have to deposit £250 (£50 per day of my stay)... More

After staying at the Manchester Malmaison a couple of years ago, we were very excited (we thought) to be returning to another one of the very chic and cool hotels owned by this group. On initial arrival the hotel reception and staff were both an excellent representation of the hotel's image. However we were disappointed from then on. The rest... More

Stopped for a weekend break with my wife the hotel is in a great location just off the city centre high street. Parking over the road NCP but you get it half price was very convenient. We've stayed in a number of the Malmaison group hotels and as ever good quality stylish accommodation. Large room for a standard double was... More

Stayed here as a couple on a special occasion in the mallard room on 29/03/14. Room was expensive, but very nice, lighting could be improved though. The extractor fan in the bathroom did not work which resulted in the bathroom being constantly steamed up. Considering this was the most expensive room available, we were annoyed to hear constant pounding on... More

This was a great hotel, such a quick walk from Reading Station and the coach to Heathrow. Despite being in the middle of the city it was very quiet and the room was well appointed with a really comfy bed and nice bathroom. Best of all, when I left my iPhone charger behind they kept it and when I returned... More

Friends generously treated us to a one-night stay at The Malmaison following the hotel's Berkshire Local Wine and Food event. We were greeted most courteously at Reception and shown to the GWR Suite on the fourth floor. The name is a reminder that the historic building housing it was the world's first railway hotel when Brunel built it in 1840... More

You shouldn't have this much fun so close to Heathrow, but you will at Mal. You shouldn't find a train set in your room, or a bath big enough for two, for that matter. ... more   less
