It's a typical Ibis - clean with a wierd plasticky bathroom but all fine for a short stay. Beds are not very soft. Breakfast is fairly impressive (but should be included in the price!). The location of this hotel is right on the high street so couldn't be more central. Free wifi, tea/coffee/kettle in the room. We stayed during the... More

A brilliant little hotel in the centre of Reading. Great staff, very friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble, even when really busy. Breakfast substantial, room clean and beds comfy.I was pleasantly surprised at how committed the young staff were to customer service. Well done!

Stayed here for three days. Hotel well situated for the centre of town. Room was very clean, good breakfast (we liked the porridge). Wifi also very good. Well priced. Airco is too loud to leave running at night time.

The location is 4 minutes from the Railway Station and easy access to the shopping bars and restaurants. The only downside is room was hot and opening the window let in the noise of an air... More
