I was really impressed by this hotel. From the moment we entered I was very pleasantly surprised by the funky decor and vibrant atmosphere of the ground floor lobby. The bar area and restaurant was a lovely place to spend some time before we went out for the evening. The location is ideal being right in the heart of the... More

We have come here with a reference of Ege Gazioglu. Rooms were clean and beds were so comfortable. Entrance and bar was cool and the staff were friendly. I am sure we will stay here for our next trip. Thank you for having us.

Whilst our trip was only for one night, we found the hotel staff warm welcoming and well informed. The contemporary design That's been extremely well acted. Whilst we didn't dine in the restaurant, mainly because we felt it appeared little overpriced, we did enjoy excellent breakfast with freshly made ingredients and again good service from staff

Another stay at The Penta, which always ensures a good room and a decent night's sleep. The hotel is really well positioned, in the centre of Reading. The rooms are always clean and tidy, with a very comfortable bed, as well as room to move. One of the best things is how welcoming and helpful the staff are. I've found... More

Nice enough hotel in the centre of Reading, good location. Had our work Christmas party here and stayed in the hotel afterwards. The rooms are clean and modern and fit for purpose, however unusually hot and you can't open the window fully. I'm very sensitive to heat so this made it quite uncomfortable for me, especially when getting dressed! Bed... More

Seems like over the last year I've become a regular visitor to the Penta whilst in Reading on business. It's conveniently located for access to the city centre, and only a short walk from the train station, with good access to many amenities. The interior has quite a modern feel, and staff are exceptionally friendly. The rooms are clean and... More
