The photos on the website of the rooms are not accurate - the rooms are tired and dated and there were hairs in my bed. The staff were attentive and friendly, but overall the hotel did not represent value for money.

Comfortable and newly refurbished rooms. It does the job for a quick stay close to the train station. Very good customer service and friendly staff. Watch out though if you use the car park and drive a wide car as the driveway is extremely narrow.

Stayed at the Thameside for one night as it was cheaper than the branded hotels in Reading. I was greeted by a pleasant man who shoed me to my room. It faced the rear of the hotel so was very quiet. Room was clean and well maintained with kettle/tea/coffee and a modern TV. Bathroom was also of a good standard... More

Looked at some of the Megacorp brand hotels but decided to go for this one and it was a great choice. Genuinely friendly staff and it's five minutes from the Thames and the big park/play area surrounding it.

Food, both breakfast & evening meal was also good. I had a room at the front of the hotel that was supposed to be noisy, not for me, a... More

Small room, not too clean and fairly tatty. Noisy night with traffic passing and doors banging so felt tired next day. This was not too good as I had driven down and stayed night before because i had an important business meeting and wanted to be fresh. Well that didnt work out too well for me!

My room was at the front of the hotel was a really good size with a lovely bathroom. It was clean and tidy and I slept... More

What can we say but thank you to the staff who continue to always exceed our expectations and take great care of us every time we stay. It's one of the best feelings walking into an establishment where you are greeted with kindess and familiarity as soon as you walk through the door. The type of customer service and general... More

On the minus side the room is small and a bottle of beer is £4.75 but on the plus side there is free wifi, free parking at the back of the hotel, the edge of Reading location was convenient, the Thames is 50m away and the staff were the friendliest people you could wish to meet. I would stay again... More
