We stayed here for 2 nights as I was visiting family. Really lovely room as spacious as you can imagine for this sort of price range. Staff were friendly and helpful, although I could not understand what our receptionist was saying for the life of me. Lovely bathroom and light airy room. I would have preferred a bigger window view... More

clearly geared for a student audience the room is basic with odd design features it was perfectly adequate and distinctly different but not in a good way ...would not rush back it was value for money and right in central Reading

5 minutes walk from Reading station platforms to/from the Hotel; efficient reception; good rooms; excellent soundproofing and no-hassle check-out; silence of lifts made me think not working but arrived quickly.

Had a 1 night stay after the end of a conference in Central England and before flying out of Heathrow. Good opportunity to relax, do some last minute shopping, and then catch the excellent Railair Coach to Heathrow. Easy short walk from Reading Station.

The hotel is very convenient from the train station, close to the shopping centre, and walking distance from the Reading festival site. The only complain would be that they were understaffed but the hotel's facilities were great.
