I have worked in Reading for a year, and stayed in this Hotel for a few days each week. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is excellent. The position of the hotel is great, regardless of whether you are looking for a place to stay for business or pleasure as its only 10 minutes walk from Reading train... More

I am on a business trip and I will not be returning or recommending this hotel to anyone. Was greeted at the counter and swiftly got told someone else will deal with us upon checking in. Was handed a document to sign that was covered in coffee stains and absolutely disgusting. Was given no information of when breakfast was or... More

I stay here on a weekly basis and can personally say you will not be disappointed. From the outside it looks like a average B & B, but believe me, once your inside you become overwhelmed with executive rooms and a fine dining restaurant. The personal service from the owners and staff add to comfortable yet exquisite environment around you.... More

The room was clean,comfortable, with good facilities as well as being one of the best nights sleep I've had in a hotel bed! I stayed on the first floor in what appeared to be a newly renovated room of contemporary design. The staff in this charming family run hotel is most excellent, so personable, attentive, polite with a wonderful welcoming... More

After leaving probably the worst hotel in reading the Central Travel lodge I arrived at the Thameside as I pulled up my initial thought was oh no , the red bubble style shades on the exterior do absolutely nothing for first impressions as I genuinely only see these now on dated 80,s hotels However I walked into something entirely different...

First thing to say I am fortunate in business to have stayed in some really luxurious 5 star hotels and it is sometimes difficult as a consequence when doing comparisons but I will try and be fair. The positive were the staff, they were very nice and friendly and couldn't do enough and the rooms were clean. The down side... More

Historically we stayed with my father-in-law when we visited Reading, however, this past May we were unable to do so since we had our 11-month daughter in tow for the first time. We chose this hotel based on reviews and location (it was a few blocks away from his house). We could not have been more impressed. We were offered... More

We have stayed in a few hotels in this area whilst visiting relatives. This one is probably the best value for a short stay. We stayed one night, our room was ok but rather small for a double. It was at the front of the hotel, overlooking the busy street, and so quite noisy. The car park is tricky to... More
