This was a very last minute booking as I had to stay overnight in Reading for work purposes and this was all I could find in my budget at just a few hours notice. Right on a main road with very limited parking. The room was in desperate need of decoration and the single bed / mattress had definitely seen better days. The bathroom although very spacious was also in need of tlc, the shower worked but leaked, the washbasin was so small having a shave in the morning was not easy. Within 30 seconds of walking into the breakfast room in the morning I turned around and left and checked out.

We stated one night. The soundproof between the rooms is awful. You can hear every step from the room above or from the hall. When other guest were walking in the middle of night in their room our room windows were vibrating. We thought that ceilings might collapse. All night we could not sleep. The shower in our room it did not work. Do not stay there.

Stayed here whilst visiting a friend. Olivia the English receptionist was friendly although the foreign staff at breakfast were 1950s eastern bloc service. Room was clean, carpets are ready for replacement. It's like a very old bed and breakfast that's not had any money spent on it for a long time. Bed was comfy enough one pillow and a quilt. Noisy from the main road outside the room. I went down for breakfast at 10am on Sunday - they told me 8-10am and there was a sign saying closed. The lady looked at me looking at my watch and let me in. Breakfast is in the Pizzaria restaurant which is part of the hotel and was a croissant and some fruit. There were also cereals. I tried the Apple juice from the machine it was very watery so I left it. Orange juice was ok. Shower room was fine bit of grout missing from floor tiles and no pedal on the pedal bin.

For the price paid the accommodation was reasonable. Yes it's not up to the same modern standard as say premier inn but it was half the price - however the bed was comfortable the room clean and the bathroom fairly modern although the common area was dated. The staff I encountered were friendly and the location handy for town Solo I'd stay again in a flash, but it's not a place for a romantic break.

Take off the tax and this room cost £50 for a clean hotel room in central Reading with free parking, free wifi, free breakfast with tea, juice, croissant and cereal, free tea tray with Cadburys hot chocolate and branded tea/coffee, free chocolate biscuits, free toiletries and use of an iron and ironing board. I don't know what these people expect for the money but this was a bargain. I spent all of 20 minutes awake in the room so that fact the decor is a bit dated and the corridor carpets are faded, who cares? If you want more pay for more, perfect for a night out to see fiends, I'd probably avoid for a romantic weekend away though if you have more money but hey. I'd rather save the money for drinks! I'll be back!
