I'm not sure if this hotel is in the middle of a refurbishment. We were upgraded to a superior room (222) which was nice but a bit shabby and very dark. It was very quiet though. I didn't like the fact that the bathroom area was accessed by some stairs going up from the room and had no door on... More

Stayed here three nights during a visit to Regatta. Helpful staff. Smartly decorated. Helped us manage through an early arrival. Tidy room. Beds a bit stiffer than we're accustomed to but we both slept well. The breakfast was very enjoyable and thought a good addition. Coffee nearby. No noise from road/trains. Liked convenience of train station. Didn't spend much time... More

Stayed here after a car breakdown left me stranded. The price, particularly for a last minute booking (£115) seemed very reasonable, especially in Ascot week. The location is excellent, right next to the station (not surprisingly as it's the old railway hotel). My room was upgraded and was very stylish with exposed brickwork, railway clock in bathroom, separate bath and... More

We stayed for four days on vacation. Very clean room probably newly renovated. No disturbing noise from traffic outside window. Good restaurant for both breakfast and dinner. Trainstation and airportbus just across the street. Shopping center under five minute walk. Big applause to friendly and service-minded staff. We really hope to be back again in future

We went last minute for lunch a few weeks ago and it was great. We had the set menu. The starter could act as an entire meal in its self. It's buffet style and there are meats, cheeses, salmon, salads and soup. Although tempting I just had a small portion as I had steak and then a chocolate truffle cake,... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for one night. The overall experience was good. The staff on reception were very welcoming. We had a superior room and I have to say I was a little disappointed with the room. It was very dark and felt very enclosed. The shower was great with great pressure and the room did... More

We have just returned from a 1 night stay at malmaison reading for a friends wedding locally. Fantastic location for station, shops & reading centre. Fast, efficient, friendly checkin, we had 3 rooms book & they allowed us 1 room to get ready in at 12pm which was very useful & delivered the luggage up to the other rooms once... More

Stayed here last week for one night whilst in Reading for work and was really impressed! Fantastic location and a nice change to staying in a more "standard business hotel" with its slightly quirky feel. Thought my room was incredible, extremely high standards of cleanliness throughout and great value for money. The best thing was on my way back downstairs... More

Me and a friend visited malmaison in reading on a Friday night on 27th june for a one night stay. The hotel is right in the middle of the town so spot on for location! the decor inside and out is lovely and everything was spotlessly clean in the room and throughout the hotel. We made use of the bar... More
