4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

The Ibis hotel is very well located in the centre of Reading, the hotel is clean and the rooms well laid out with coffee and tea facilities. Staff are welcoming and professional and there is a small bar area. The only let down is parking is at an NCP and the cost overnight although subsidised is £12.

Great hotel, location ideal in town centre. Very reasonably priced. Wi-Fi free in rooms and very quick. Not noisy at all at night. Each room has cooling system with self-controls which was great with the hot weather. Only a ten minute walk to the bus and train station.

Entered the hotel and was greeted warmly by the check in staff and they were efficient and helpful getting me a room with an iron as I had a shirt I needed to smooth. Got to my room and it was spotless and just as you would expect from this chain. Great central location to everything you need when staying... More

Nice local hotel with extremely friendly staff. Rooms were clean and food from the hotel is quite nice as well. Prices are reasonable when booking in advance. Definitely recommend! It is also in a great location close to all facilities and 3 minutes from train station.

We had a comfortable bed here and the staff asked whether we wanted a high or low floor. Our room was on the 8th floor so we weren't bothered by street noise. The hotel is a bit "bare bones". Small towels, no top sheets, squeeze bottle combination soap/shampoo. Bright lighting in the bathroom-great for makeup but BRIGHT in the middle... More

Check in was quick and easy. It is a budget hotel but reasonably new and comfortable. The room is not too small and has a sort of shower pod in it. The one thing that really annoyed me was the shower has a tap with very poor temperature control. It goes from "not-quite warm-enough" to "screaming scalding death" with the... More

We stayed here while in Reading to see the Proclaimers in concert. It is five minutes walk from the station and a similar distance from the theatre. Check in was quick and simple. You can have a pint of lager in reception if you so wish, or go to one of the many nearby pubs. We crashed out post our... More

Needed an overnight stay for two sets of adults plus one child. Location was convenient in Reading City Centre. However we wanted a family room - i.e. two adults plus a child in one room, but this was refused and we had to pay for a separate room for the child - i.e. three double/twin rooms all together. The rooms... More

A very good hotel with comfortable beds. I stayed here for one night and it had everything I needed. The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was excellent even though we have to pay about 9 extra pounds for it.

We stayed for 5 nights, we were attending an event in Henley. Great place to lay your head, if you don't need the frills of a higher star hotel. Room was a good size, modern decor and ample storage space for storage, for a short stay. The hotel has a small bar in the foyer but there are lots of... More
