“Fantastic hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

The hotel was really lovely. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful, always available and willing to fulfil any request. The hotel itself felt very luxurious whilst still being comfortable and homely and was only a half hour walk from town. The lady on reception showed us to a very large room at the front of the building because we were staying for 3 nights yet gave us the option of a smaller room at the back away from the road if we preferred. We decided to stay in the larger front room which had all the facilities we could have asked for, a large comfortable bed, a good sized TV and a clean and spacious shower room. Road noise was not an issue at all.
Free wi fi was included in the price as was the breakfast which could not be faulted. The full english was comprised of good quality food and was cooked to perfection.
Directly opposite the hotel is a superb Beefeater restaurant where we enjoyed two delicious meals.
All in all the hotel is highly recommended and would be our first choice should we visit Reading again.

Very easy to find. The owner kindly carried the bag to the room and also put it in the car as I am currently on crutches. Nothing was too much trouble. Also someone's car alarm went off a few times during the night, whilst enjoying a lovely breakfast learnt that the owner took the trouble of having the guest's car key so he could turn the alarm off to save the guest the inconvience of having to turn it off, also he would have been quicker turning it off so didn't disturb any guests. Fantastic to have a Beefeater almost opposite.

I have been staying here annually for the last 6 years if not more for the Reading festival. The owner is always friendly and welcoming and nothing seems to be too much trouble. I would thoroughly recommend the Beech House to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing and comfortable stay.

The perfect spot for a business traveller. Easy access, well appointed and the poached eggs for breakfast were impeccable :-). Everything says that the owners and staff obviously care. The address confused my tomtom, as there exists another 60 Bath rd right outside of Reading two miles down the road; so ... the Beech hotel is 100 yards from the corner of Bath Rd and Parkside Drive in case your sat nav tries to trick you too.

Second time we have stayed in their "Superior" room, which is clean tidy and lots of space.(Big bed) Could do with a designer to help out with an uplift,Reception hall , lounge and dining areas lovely with new double glazing being fitted whilst we were there. Cant fault anything.Breakfast good hot and prompt service.We have stayed at several other places in Reading,but are very pleased with Beech House. Good value.

We stayed for two nights, having returned to Reading (where we had lived for more than 40 years until March this year) for a few days to visit relatives etc.

We were warmly welcomed and even given a larger room (kingsize instead of a double) because the hotel was having new windows installed in some of the bedrooms.

All the staff we met were smart, polite and very helpful.

The room was more than adequate, very comfortable and the breakfast was hot and appetising.

If we were to be hyper-critical, a box of tissues in the room and information about the hotel/building would have been useful.

When we return to Reading for a visit,we would definitely stay here again.

I had to ask to be moved as room was right where all the action is! I think he took humbridge at that... he the manager possibly owner... on account that he takes everything too personal... i think he is oppressive and that guest should be seen and not heard...along with breakfast being cold i think there was very little choice without a lot of food stuff i have had in other hotels.... my towels were not changed when left on floor only folded and put back! I know from a mark on one! He was also a bit too inquisitive.
