A one night business trip, and we arrived quite late - about 9pm. By the time we'd checked in (a little slow) and waited for the staff to find us non-smoking rooms (unexpected to be told they might only have smoking rooms available!) we were disappointed to find there were no free tables in the restaurant (which is quite small). It felt a little late to be searching for an alternative in Reading so we had a bar snack, which was very good. Breakfast is a fixed price of £15, which felt expensive - a buffet that wasn't as good as most of the other hotels I've visited, and no alternative pricing option if all you want is a slice of toast. But the waiting and reception staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were very good and everything was fresh and well presented.
