2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Good location, plenty of free parking, friendly staff and good value for money. First time the stay was fine. Second time I stayed for 2 nights, my room had not been made up after first day and I ordered porridge for breakfast which was not cooked properly (how can you not get porridge right!?)

Firstly you can only pay by credit card, although this is mentioned it is not prominent on the booking site, the room we had we were told was recently renovated but by looking at the marks I would say this was not the case. The room we had was in a small cottage type building, the hotel is made up... More

Came on a business trip. Located conveniently near London Road campus Reading where we were working. Staff were very friendly and accommodating, although a couple of our beds had not been made up when we got there. It was extremely warm on this night and there was no air conditioning- just electric fans. But otherwise a nice stay.

Well we get into the room and I check a few places to make sure it's clean. Sadly i find a old pile of chips behind the bedside table. Asked the cleaner if it could be cleaned up, and he picked them up in his hand then moved the table over the rest... great start. Give them a chance I... More

Location of Hotel is a good mile out of City centre. Not the best neighbourhood to be walking through and the hill is a killer. In Room you do have a fridge (that reeked) and a microwave and with Tesco Express around the corner you could stay here on a budget. Obviously avoiding the 10 pound breakfast!!!!! Rooms was pretty...

This hotel is a little gem, in a lovely part of Reading. It's on a direct bus route (claret 21) if you are coming on public transport from the station. There seemed to be lots of parking spaces too. Yes, the hotel is old and dated, but I thought that just added to its charm. My room was fine, equipped... More

The staff at check in were great, the room was tiny, double bed but only just room for it, there was no rail in the tiny wardrobe the windows were single glazed with an Ikea type venetian blind, so the room was too light to sleep, the view out of the window was of the roof of the conservatory below...

Room was basic and dated (bathroom was very aged) but the tool had 3 beds (2 singles and a double) all for £60. Staff were friendly. Bed could have been more comfortable. Bar downstairs was also fine plus parking was free. We just needed somewhere to crash and this worked fine.
