stayed in this hotel a number of times when visiting our offices in Reading. it's well located in the city of Reading, and has a nice atmosphere to it. the central location makes it really easy to get out and do "things" in Reading. the hotel restaurant and bar are great, a super place to relax after a long work...

My boyfriend and I have to stay in Reading once a month and so we initially chose the Malmaison as our place of stay therefore making us regular customers and we usually find our stay to be sufficiently satisfactory for the money that we pay. For September's monthly stay however we decided to upgrade to a superior room and this... More

Stayed here on business and after many hours in various hotels i was surprised by the darkness. On waking on a gloomy morning there was no lights working in the room. I tryed all switches including reinserting my room card several times with no luck. As time was limited my only option was to have a shower in the dark... More

OK. I'm not the first person to say it's dark. But it's dark. Whilst in theory it's nice for someone to try a different look I found it quite oppressive and looking a little frayed round the edges away from the public rooms. The corridors are painted dark blue. Unfortunately they have suffered with a few scrapes, and whilst I'm... More

Great location near the station, extremely pleasant welcome and check in at reception. My room was on the -1 level, with an outdoor terrace and seating area. Lovely room, high quality bathroom, and the thickest, darkest velvet curtains that made the room pitch black and made for a great nights sleep. I had room service as well, which was really... More

We stayed here for one night recently and really enjoyed the hotel. It's well located next to the train station and very close to shops and restaurants. We had a super room that was perfect for two adults and one child. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom spacious with lovely products. We didn't use the restaurant as we... More

Booked the wine dine and room deal here as an escape for our anniversary and was not disappointed! The meal was amazing and the service was so attentive, we even got a glass of bubbly each when they found out it was a special occasion. The food arrived quickly and was tasty as well as well presented, they even went... More

I have just checked in at Malmaison Reading, and am thoroughly dissatisfied. The room is somewhat shabby considering the cost of a superior double, chipped scratched and stained furniture. The room has a view of a derelict building. Not the fault of the hotel of course, but the room should be downgraded to a standard double given this. Upon opening... More

Stayed for one night, handy for the station, shopping and local restaurants. Downside is the subdued lighting, it doesnt do it for me and I cannot tell you if it was modern/old clean/dirty as it was too dark to tell. I have stayed in a lot of lovely good quality Hotels but this is one of the strangest.

Dear Paul H Firstly, thank you for taking the time to write your review and I am pleased to read that you enjoyed our location. I do however apologise that our style and décor is not to your liking. We are indeed a dark and warmly decorated brand and we do understand that this is not to everyone’s personal choice.... More
