Stayed here recently with my boyfriend in the Orient Express suite on the first floor for 2 nights. I couldn't recommend this hotel more! Have stayed in a few hotels in Reading over the years but this by far tops them all. Every element of the stay was absolutely perfect, really friendly knowledgeable staff on Reception in the Bar and... More

Very nice hotel with great service. Slightly expensive and the WIFI wasn't great. Comfy beds and big rainforest type showers. Really close to the train station and where I was working and it's attached to a Starbuck which made everything a whole lot better.

We stayed for two nights for my partner's birthday - as a special treat we had the Mallard suite in the basement. From start to finish everything about our stay was perfect. The room was spectacular - just add a kitchen and I would happily live there. The lounge was huge with comfy sofa and excellent television. The four poster... More

I had my birthday party here in September in the private dining room. We had 16 places set for dinner, amazing candlelight setting and very attentive and polite staff. The hotel manager checked we had everything we needed and was extremely helpful. Great cocktails, excellent food and a superb setting! Thank you. I would thoroughly recommend the private dining room... More

My husband, myself and our two children stayed overnight 7th February, a meeting point. We travelled from Leicestershire, our daughter from Portsmouth and my son from Reading university. We were very pleasantly surprised from the minute we stepped over the threshold. Richard, the general manager physically took my husband to the local NCP car park where you receive 50% discount...

Stayed on 1st February at Malmaison Reading, this was my first visit. Easy to find and local affordable parking within 400 yards, also located directly opposite the train station. For a town centre hotel it was very well insulated from traffic noise. Room "Rocket" was fantastic. Huge comfortable bed, Bose surround system and huge flat screen. The room is quirky... More

I'm self-confessedly pretty fussy and nit-picking but had a very good stay. The room was quiet and there was perfectly good overhead lighting. The wifi was fast and the room was quiet and the toiletries in the bathroom very good (large shower gel, shampoo/conditioner and soap). I'm basically commenting on all the things previous reviewers complained about as we didn't... More

The Malmaison is one of the best hotels in Reading. Stylish interiors,great service and an excelent restaurant all contributing to a very nice stay. Only downside are the very dark rooms, with not enough light and some are with windowns opposite a wall.

I like this chain and the Malmaison Reading is full of character and like the rest. Rooms are all of a good size and well fitted out. The only reason it doesn't get 5 is that - internet is very poor with such low speeds that it was impossible to d any work at all; and also, as with all... More
