I stay at the Hilton Reading on a regular basis due to work. The hotel is in the perfect location for all the large corporates in Reading, football and Reading Centre. The hotel it's self is large and roomy and always very clean. The gym is a good size for a hotel and the pool area is really nice, perfect after a busy office day.
The food has improved recently which i think is due to a change of chef, i have no complaints about the food anymore which used to be my only complaint. The food is now of a very high standard and always very well presented. The are plenty of car parking spaces under the hotel.
Would recommend this hotel and will of course be back.

Stayed one night on way to classic car meeting so security of car park was priority. Hotel was modern, reception staff helpful, room well furnished and comfortable (though no great views). The breakfast buffet was good if a little busy (9am on a Sunday morning) but I was pleased to see that service went on until 11am for late risers.

Overall the hotel lived up to the standards I expect from a Hilton and the reception staff were particularly helpful.

This is a really comfortable place to stay and the whole hotel is immaculate. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and were a credit to the place. The bar, restaurant and pool are just what you'd hope for and the free underground parking is a plus too. A cab to Reading cost us £8 so not bad for going out either. The only niggle was the breakfast which looked like a plague of locusts had got there first or perhaps all the other reviewers here (9.30 Sunday morning, service ended 11.00). There was nothing left, our group were there for nearly an hour and it never got better. No eggs, no sausage, no mushrooms, no muffins, no pastries, lots of waiting in hope. If you wanted a quorn thing with grilled tomato you were ok. It was a poor effort but I hope they'd recognise that and I'd definitely go back there.

Room Tip: Any. Better view from the 3rd floor though all much the same

This is a better-than-average Hilton with reasonably sized rooms with floor to ceiling windows, friendly and efficient service, and a good breakfast. The only downside is the location. There is very little within walking distance of the hotel.

The Hilton Reading is conveniently located on the Kennet Island development, off the A33, 5 minutes by taxi to the centre of Reading and minutes from both the Madejski Stadium, Green Park Business Park and close to the M4, making it ideally located for all your needs in the Berkshire area.

We stayed here for one night last year as we had booked to do a bungee jump nearby! We checked in in the afternoon and our room was ready for us already. We were very pleasantly surprised with the room, it was clean, comfortable and spacious. The staff were all lovely, and helped us with directions for the bungee jump the next day. We didn't fancy a lot of breakfast as we were jumping in the morning, but there was plenty of hot food and it all looked delicious. Would definitely stay again!
