This hotel is centrally located within easy walking distance of the station and all the main attractions. We foolishly decided to drive and battled with Reading's one way system. After half an hour, and with help from the hotel receptionist, we finally found the hotel car park. The hotel is an old building and the three rooms we booked were... More

I took my wife away for the weekend, very clean and comfy bed and room is clean. We would stay here again but not use the royal tandoori restaurant again as the customer service is rubbish. Just general chat would be nice.

As a solo female traveller, the welcome I got made me feel very safe, knowing that a 24 hour front desk was on hand. The room was clean and comfy and I got a good night's sleep! Nice breakfast too. It is a budget hotel but one I would use again.

Stayed in May 2016. Staff really very helpful, room clean and tidy, bathroom clean, bed comfortable and most important, I got a good night's sleep. The Hotel is a bit of a warren of passages and stairs, presumably converted and adapted from a building with other use. Parking 'interesting' but I managed to park within 20 feet of the entrance....

The positive first :the bathroom was clean. That's all. The smell was awful. I don't know if to blame their Indian restaurant (which was pretty ok to eat) or bad ventilation but by the morning it made me feel sick. The beds we're foldable and uncomfortable and we experienced a rude attitude from the receptionist. Finally too too expensive! It... More

Central Location Easy to find Free Parking (practically impossible in Reading) Reasonable Rates Breakfast included Upon arrival it was clear that there is a lot of work underway to modernise and freshen up this old building.

Food quite good but served on cold plates. Nice roast lamb, but boiled new potatoes and not roast as in menu. Other veg OK. Plates put out, one assumes for bread rolls. No bread rolls, have been served on previous occasions. May have been for cheese and biscuits although this was had by a minority of people. No coffee cups... More

My company has offices in Reading so colleagues at work have always given mixed reviews about this hotel. Some really like it, some don't! Everyone has praised the wonderful colleagues. I stayed here for one night before a meeting in the area. I had slight difficulty finding the hotel as there is another hotel which is now closed with a... More
