Stayed for a weekend visit, lovely room and very friendly staff. Had a terrace room which has a small private terrace outside which was quite nice. Room was lovely, well designed, if small, and very well fitted out. Good bed. No external noise. Stay was slightly let down by experience in on site Brasserie in which the service was so poor we walked out after sitting for 20 minutes waiting for someone to take orders. Note that the onsite Brasserie is called London Street Brasserie which is also the name of a far better but unconnected restaurant in Reading, do not be confused they aren't linked. OVerall, the hotel staff and room were excellent, the location is extremely handy, the onsite restaurant is poor.
