“Great value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

This hotel was spotlessly clean and the room was great, nice comfortable bed and a bathroom with superb shower and a bath. Hotel was convenient for my needs and the pub opposite served a great breakfast

My wife and I stayed at this Hotel on the 4th. and 5th.April for the third time and were delighted at the improved quality of the bedrooms as they had been refurbished. The bed was very comfortable and we consider that any adverse comments of a serious nature should be ignored in future. There will always be minor problems but as we have observed in other Travelodges that generally speaking their specially chosen Staff are doing a fine job for the Company. The lack of Catering Facilities does not matter at all as there is an excellent Crown Carvery adjacent which shares the free Car Park with the Travelodge.
HAVE NO FEAR BOOK AT WHITLEY as in my opinion you get good value for money.

Room Tip: We have been happy when staying in all rooms which have been allocated to us.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

after having this booked for me i read online reviews and approached the place with dread, i thought the pace was going to smell but as another reviewer pointed out the only smell was of fresh paint. The bed was comfortable and the pillows huge. Of course its basic, its cheap. There was only soap and no shower gel...the staff i spoke to were very proud of the refurbishment and it is fine for a brief stay. The pub opposite has cheap food but is in dire need of a refit similar to the hotel. For breakfast you get a rather strange breakfast "box" comprising of cornflakes with uht milk (yuk) muffin, nutri grain bar and orange jiuce (great)

Thank you for your feedback Mily653. We can confirm that as standard across our hotels we do not provide toiletries in our rooms. We find our customers prefer to bring their own. We do however provide a vending machine at reception which will contain extra toiletries should you need them.

After reading the poor reviews on here, I was expecting the worst but was pleasantly surprised. It was obvious that some redecoration had recently been done as there was a smell of fresh paint and new carpets in reception. The room was clean and comfortable and there was very little noise so I had a good nights sleep.
I paid the non refundable price which worked out about £30 a night overall which was great value for money. The area around the hotel is a bit run down but the pub next door does a reasonable carvery and there's Morrisons within walking distance.

Convenient location close to central Reading. Hotel has been refurbished and the room was clean & well presented with a decent bathroom which had a nice power shower. The bed was honestly one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on with good quality pillows & duvet. I was pleasantly surprised and felt the room was excellent value for money. Would definitely stay there again.
