“Cracking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

This hotel looked like it had been recently refurbished so was nicely decorated, fresh and modern. Spotlessly clean room and bathroom. Staff were friendly and helpful. Next door to a pub with a very varied menu with enough veggie choices for us. Very reasonable prices and did take away too. Would definitely return.

The hotel was alright for the price; the staff were friendly and the Pub at the front of the hotel offers excellent full English breakfast Buffet with takeaway option ( which i found to be really handy) if you enjoy staying in your hotel room for you meal. I recommend for any one who wants a good hotel at an affordable price

Need a room for the night near to family. Simple and comfortable with no frills. Needed a hair dryer and had to ask for one but it wasn't very powerful. Close to shops and food outlets to pick up takeway or right next to a Pub/restaurant.

Conveniently located for visiting Reading Uni - literally 5 mins drive. Large free car park. Comfortable family size room. Located next to perfect family friendly "cheap & cheerful" pub. Not the sort of place I'd recommend visiting for romantic dinner but family of 4 ate for less than £30 ! Only problem was pub advertised breakfast but wasn't open at 8.30am ! However, Morrisons was just 2 mins drive & served very reasonable breakfast.

I vowed never to use travel lodge again after many different disaster stays but based on the adverts on TV i good at Reading. The out side and car park was a bit of a mess but generally the hotel was OK. Nothing special but clean and quiet. Had a problem with getting a wifi code which was never resolved although paid for.

Very comfortable bed & pillows, clean & nicely decorated room, we would happily stay again & recommend to family & friends. Ideally situated for shops, m4 motorway, Flowers in the rooms would be a nice touch too

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2014

I have been to this Travelodge on a number of occasions and it has always been acceptably average. Unusually with this particular hotel I have always found something missing like a remote control, dirty cups, missing toilet paper, missing towel or missing soap. There is always something. I have reported these issues to reception and it has always been painful to correct.

On one occasion I booked two consecutive Monday’s and on each night there was a missing chair in the same room. This is not good enough!

It’s about 50:50 whether they can correct the problem.

As the hotel is rather small they probably don’t stock enough supplies for replacements.

The hotel is set in the suburbs of Reading near junction 11 with a useful Moriston’s store nearby. It is very quiet. There is a pub next to the hotel which is a pile it high sell it cheap establishment with that you get the clientele that goes with it

On my last visit I noticed that the hotel was recently refurbished to a reasonably high standard. In my opinion it is not one of the best Travelodge hotels, but better than average. It remains to be seen whether under its new refurbished colours the rooms become adequately stocked!

Don’t book this hotel on match day or whenever Reading FC play in the week, the car park is bursting and Travelodge don’t do anything to stop it.

Room Tip: Don’t book this hotel on match day or whenever Reading FC play in the week, the car park is bursting...
