Just got back from a one night stay at Thameside hotel whilst in Reading for the festival. The hotel has a fantastic location, very near to the train station and within walking distance of the festival site. Staff were really helpful both during and before our stay, providing information on how to find them and making us some off-menu lunch... More

I arrived on Railair from LHR. The hotel is a short walk with Aldis & TGI Friday's along the way. It is not an attractive location. The reception,bar & dining rooms gave a good impression. There was only 1staff, & she was serving in the restaurant. She was very friendly, asked me to wait & treated me to a delicious... More

Working on a fairly long term contract in Reading, Thameside is ideal and flexible. The serviced apartment which has access to all the hotel facilities including the bar is perfect and i get a short walk to the Thames. I cannot speak positively enough about the staff and the commitment to make your stay great. I would recommend them to... More

The hotel - for what it is, is very expensive and is a mish mash of different looks. I wouldn't stay there again - it's very similar to a hostel. We didn't want the restaurant owing to the look of the place. Plus I wouldn't trust the kitchen. The hotel is situated on the side of a busy road, there... More

Strange receptionist looked surprised and seemed a bit overexcited to have a guest - perhaps they don't have many. He insisted on walking me to my room and explaining how to turn the lights on, showing me the radiator, etc. Then b*ggered around with the radiator valve. Not the brightest spark as he closed the valve thereby turning the radiator... More

A great find. I like to stay at independent hotels rather than ones part of the bigger chains and this hotel reinforces why I do. A good room rate (yes, I know, that depends on how you book), a location not far from the town centre and really helpful, engaging and personable staff. The room was small but adequate, well...

The Thameside Hotel may only be small with it's 26 bedrooms but it is excellent in so many ways. The Staff are courteous and hard working to make your visit complete and successful. The disabled facilities are perfect and the bedrooms beautiful

We stayed for 3 nights in this hotel in room and in apartments. The most we like there was the managers / owners (it seems that the hotel is run by the the family, as we saw the same people everyday responsible for operating activity). The hostess was very friendly and adequate. She could propose to us better prices that... More

I don't give out an excellent rating easily. I was quite pleased with my stay at Thameside. There are a few things to point out as negative so let me get those out of the way first. The exterior was a bit worn, the street (Caversham) was a bit noisy, there wasn't an elevator and I was on the 3rd... More
