I was in Reading working on a project which required me to work a bit later than usual, so I went on Booking.com and found this hotel. I booked a two night stay Wednesday 26th to Friday the 28th of October. On arrival (around 6pm), I parked in the car park at the rear, which requires you to squeeze down... More

Came here with my girlfriend and her parents for two nights when visiting family in Reading. The hotel is in a quiet area and reasonably close to town (walkable in 15/20 mins). Breakfast was ok but wouldn't expect much more from a small hotel like this. Rooms are ok too, slightly old fashioned and could do with a bit of... More

My wife and I decided to stay at the Abbey House hotel as its well situated in Reading as a base. Unfortunately this place has pluses and minuses to it and was a real disappointment for us in the end. We met the manager after our arrival and he wanted the full 2 days payment- not the usual practice we... More

The bad - the shower in my room had no hot water one day (I tried again at lunchtime and still no hot water), also I could not turn it on without forcing it which left an imprint in my hand from the lever and I had to forcibly turn it off to prevent it dripping loudly. On the Sunday... More

Found the hotel easily and good parking at the back. The owners and manager were lovely - very friendly and felt like joining a family. My grandson loved the extra attention he got, so children are made to feel welcome too. Evening meal was ok, but not wonderful - freshly cooked would have been more acceptable. The room was spotless... More

very nice, quiet hotel close to town center. We enjoyed both the stay as well as friendly, always helpful staff. Clean rooms, comfortable sitting lounge and nice dining area - definitely inviting to come back. We've enjoyed freshly made breakfast. Other meals are also available on request. Good value for money - worth recommending.
