Large hotel about 3 miles from Reading station. Taxi fare at time of writing about eight pound.
On arrival I was met quickly at reception and the formalities gone through and left to make my own way to the room.
The room was a double en-suite and was in a mostly clean condition. The room was fine, the bathroom was a bit grubby under the sink and it was clear it had a serious mould problem and this had all been scrubbed off.
The bed was comfortable and clean and all the fitting were in good order.
Tea & coffee makings in the room.
The hotel cooks meals and has a small bar, neither of which were expensive. Most meals on the menu were six pounds and were of a good quality. The hotel serves food from 1830 to 2045 hours.
I didn't have breakfast as in the morning when I went down for it at 7am the dining area was heaving with people and I prefer a quieter morning thank you! :)
The room was mostly quiet... Which brings me to what I consider a downside.
A totally subjective view and I do not wish to be rude but the hotel was full of tradesmen and this meant that most communal areas were quite loud and people returning to their rooms late and somewhat loudly. Which caused me to wake a couple of times.
Also... I was able to clearly hear the person next door whilst they were urinating.
On leaving I was pleasantly surprised at the bill being low for a hotel in terms of food and drink and is a definite plus.
Like I said in the title, for work this hotel maybe fine for you, but I wouldn't wish to spend my own money here for time away.
