I have stayed at the Royal County Hotel in Reading twice, both in conjunction to Farnborough airshows, and I found the hotel charming and well worth the money.
The location is excellent, just at the beginning of the shopping street and a 5 min walk from the train station.
The hotel staff has always been nice and tried to facilitate the stay as much as possible.
I have had two different rooms when staying, both very nice.
One of the charming things I found of the hotel is the fact that there are many differnt rooms, all connected through very long, winding corridors and staircases. If you end up in the top room, you might find the winding staircases a bit much if you have a lot of luggage, though.
Breakfast is ok, nothing extraordinary, but neither bad in any way.
All in all, a very good hotel that I'd recommend without a doubt to anyone.
As for me, I'm booked for this summers airshow in July, staying for 11 days. So either I'm a self-punisher, or the hotel IS really nice. What do you think?
