We booked for a 3 night stay as we were visiting my partners family and attending a party, we were travelling down by car from Scotland. We left scotland at 4 in the morning as we have an 8 week old baby and were being prepared for if we had to stop alot, but in the contrary we only had to stop once which meant we were arriving in reading at about 11.30, we phoned the hotel at 10.30 to ask what is the earliest we could check in as we were arriving sooner than expected the receptionist on the phone was really helpful and told us we could check in as soon as we arrived as she would instruct housekeeping to get the cot in the room for our baby, when we arrived at 11.25 we checked in straight away which only took 2 minutes we were right up to our room which was located ideally and was very quiet at night (I had requested a quiet room after reading other reviews)
The only gripe I have about the hotel is the parking, you have to park in q park but to make the most of the discount you have to leave your car in there for over 10 hours. When driving past the hotel on one of the bypasses i noticed they have an underground parking lot, they should open it up to guests instead of loading for lorries.
The room was clean, tidy and the staff were all very accommodating
I would definitely return to the hotel when we go back down if I can get it for the same price I did, £88.50 for 3 nights through booking.com
