I travel to Reading regularly on business, and always use the PentaHotel, the service from the staff is excellent, nothing is too much trouble. Extra pillows and sorting out problems with wifi were dealt with very quickly. Breakfasts are always a treat here with the variety of food on offer. The rooms are large and comfortable, with great beds and... More

Every year for the past 3 I have gone here for my birthday and it is great for smokers with a whole floor dedicated to them! Not only being centred within town it is a place worthy of the money as you don't get harassed or questions ask you do at your pleasure! even with my 4 bags of McDonald's... More

Cool hotel, friendly staff. Breakfast is excellent. Wifi is a bit weak, even on the 1st floor. Lobby bar is really open 24/7 but only offers import beer on tap. The location is OK, close to the main walking street.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry to read that you did not fully enjoy your stay.

Warm welcome in the Pentahotel with a good service. However, noisy surroundings which you can clearly hear in the room, even at night. Room temperature at arrival was 10 degrees and WIFI not working well in the rooms.

The overall impression was rather good but i missed more water in the room. ironing board and iron were only available upon request and there was no safe or fridge in the room. Non-UK socket was not working in the room. Food in the hotel was rather mediocre.

I stayed in this hotel last weekend and I found it almost perfect. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable, the position is very good to go everywhere, very close to the railway station and to the center. The staff is very friendly and kind. If I go back to Reading, I' will try to stay there again.
