We have just returned from a two night stay at Hilton Reading on an organised coach trip.
On arrival we had a swift check in and soon found our room on the first floor room 112. The room was bright and clean, with a huge, very comfortable bed. Plenty of lighting and a control for heating/air conditioning. The tv was a flat screen and you were provided with a keyboard to enable you to access your e-mails etc through the tv.
Tea and coffee making facilities were provided, as was an iron, ironing board and hairdryer.
Bathroom was again very clean, a selection of toiletries were provided, and clean white fluffy towels which were replaced daily.
Our room had a bath with shower over and no problems were encountered with the shower, it was also nice to have a shower screen rather than a shower curtain.
Our evening meal was buffet style, plenty of choice on the starters/salad bar but not much choice on the main course, but what we had was very tasty and well cooked, again not much choice of dessert but enjoyed the profiteroles.
The bar prices were a little on the expensive side, and if you like cocktails I would not advise you to try one here, I had what must have been the worst one I have ever tasted, and I also noticed somebody else taking two cocktails back to the bar.
Breakfast was again buffet style, plenty of choice but a bit slow at replenishing the dishes, food was nice and tasty. Tea and coffee were served at the table.
Service in the restaurant was a little slow, but I think that maybe they were short staffed.
I didn't find the staff to be quite as friendly and helpful as at other Hilton hotels I have visited but I can understand that they were very busy.
