This was the second time I had stayed at this hotel and it continues to deliver a lovely guest experience in very well presented rooms and public areas. The only slightly annoying thing is the lack of air conditioning, which means you need to have the window open in summer to keep the room cool. Consequently the sounds of the city, including late night revellers, come into the room. The restaurant and bar are lovely, relaxed and staffed by very welcoming people. The downside to the Forbury is the town in which it is located. There are lovely villages around Reading and some fantastic restaurants in the rural area. However, the town of Reading has nothing to attract the visitor. The town centre is as hostile as portrayed on many news bulletins and the quality of hostelries and other entertainment venues is as low as you can imagine from the chain pub industry. If I could lock myself in the hotel and never experience the town around it, hat wold be ideal!
