For such a prestigious hotel, my stay was disappointing! Not a great location, with noisy building works opposite the hotel. Painfully slow wifi, dusty room, poor lighting...not good value for money and very superficial (quality of soaps, bed etc). Incredibly friendly staff so, must acknowledge them!

The Reading Mal is very similar to others around the country as well as hotels in its sister chain, Hotel DuVin. Rooms are nicely decorated if a little dark and on this occasion mine faced out into a back ally which made it even darker but that was the only real complaint. Food in the attached brasserie is very good... More

We stayed at the Malmaison Reading on a 2 night package for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. At the time of booking, we requested an upgrade if available, upon checkin, we could that we had been upgraded to The Rocket suite. The room was a great size and was perfect for our break. The bathroom was huge with a gorgeous... More

Stayed here on the 27th December for one night as "our Christmas Day" Brilliant hotel, found a great package on the Malmaison Website. Huge room, with a huge bathroom, double aspect windows and everything you expect from Mal. Slight technical problem which the Duty Manager, James sorted whilst we dined. Brilliant service throughout. will be back, thank you.

Booked the hotel as a last minute night away having stayed at the Malmaison Oxford previously. Got a great value deal on the Cocktails and Dreams package including two house cocktails and a three course meal. Check-in was smooth and efficient. The room was a standard double with a queen size bed, en-suite bath with separate shower. For a standard... More

I stayed here in August for a wedding and somehow managed to get a room for £50! Having previously stayed in other MalMaison hotels this was the same high standard with a stunning room. It's right by the station so very convenient. It's very lively outside at night (busy Revolution vodka bar next door) but you don't notice the noise... More

We stayed in The Rocket studio room which was by far the nicest hotel room I have ever stayed in. The bath was incredible with separate twin showers and sinks. The bathroom was up the stairs with a seating area and huge sleigh bed downstairs. As always the staff were very friendly, the breakfast was very tasty and the room... More
