Last Friday we went to the "pick of the pinots"wine tasting dinner, at Malmaison Reading we had the chance to learn about and taste unusual wines that have been carefully matched to the food for example duck salad with the unique pinot meunier from Australia. The French menu was magnificent and enjoyed by all our group. We stayed over and... More

Stayed here with my wife for two nights. Ate in the restaurant first night which was pretty good. The Mallard room was fantastic luxury. Loved the wooden bath and double rain showers. We try to have treat somewhere different every few months and this was a definitely a top treat. The only slight niggle we had was trying to work... More

We reserved and advance-paid for a room including breakfast for two, mother and 13 years old daughter. However, at the time of check-in, they insist to charge us extra for the breakfast of the daughter. They say breakfast of child is not included in the price. Of course, there was no such discription in the service detail attached to the... More

Stayed for 2 nights with my son. Reception team were great, and managed to accomodate a last minute request to have our room close to some friedns who were also staying at the Malmaison. We had a very spacious twin room, with a large wet room bathroom (our room was a disabled access room I believe). We had no view,... More

My room was very cosy with all modern facilities to hand including a massive telly and the bathroom was enormous. I didn't use the bath although it was very enticing,... More

Stayed for one night at this hotel whilst in Reading for business. It's right opposite the train station so perfectly located for those travelling on public transport. The hotel is nice, very chic looking once you get inside. The bar and restaurant areas are also very attractive. I stayed in a deluxe room on the 1st floor (overlooking the train... More
