Very impressed with hotel overall. Friendly, accommodating staff, great choices for breakfast and very clean,modern room. Young daughter very impressed with welcome gift. A nice touch! Will certainly use hotel again for our next visit to London since trains from reading are very frequent with only a 25 minute journey.

One night stay with children

Posted May 12, 2015
Pros: Breakfast. X box for kids.
Cons: Pillows not very comfortable. Didn't like configuration of separate loo with no wash basin. Room was cramped with queen size bed and sofa bed.
Location: We were staying after a wedding and went to Whipsnade Zoo on our way back to Norfolk the next day.
The best hotel breakfast ever. Wonderful staff. X box in the lobby for the kids was a joy. Arriving late on a Saturday night was a bit nerve wracking as we had to battle our way through late night revellers to get there but it was very quiet on Sunday morning. NCP car park was a bit of a hike away but the hotel paid for it. I would definitely go again.

Sehr gutes Hotel, nur wenige Meter vom Bahnhof entfernt, direkt im Stadtzentrum mit allen Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Restaurants. Zudem sind auch einige Clubs und viele Pubs in der direkten Nachbarschaft. Bis 22 Uhr kann man das Hotelschwimmbad und den Fitnessraum nutzen. Einziger Minuspunkt ist das nicht vorhandene Waschbecken in der separaten Toilette des Zimmers.

City centre hotel

Posted May 3, 2015
Pros: Location.
Cons: A bit impersonal at the bar.
Location: As above.
Close to rail station and city centre, so very convenient. Quiet considering location, although front door security at 11pm suggested centre may be a bit rowdy. Room comfortable and reasonable size. Not overly expensive.

Central location, quality hotel

Posted Apr 16, 2015
Pros: Location and service
Cons: Nothing
Location: Close to everything for a great day of shopping, drinking and eating.
Stayed for a short break and was very satisfied. The hotel is central to all the city amenities e.g. shops, pubs, restaurants, etc. Check in was quick and easy with professional and friendly staff. You need a key card to access the lifts, so the rooms are secure from non-hotel residents. Room was clean and well laid out. Bath and shower separate, so two people can use the facilities. Free wifi, the bar was not expensive and was comfortable. Definitely will be staying again.

Hotel in the heart of the city

Posted Apr 12, 2015
Pros: Nice and quiet swimming pool and good buffet breakfast.
Cons: The room was really hot and the hotel staff could only give us a small table fan which just blows hot air around the room.
Location: Location is great if you like to be in the midst of the hustle and bustle - which is what i wanted anyway.
I wanted a hotel right at the heart of Reading city centre, but with all the comforts for a small family. The short break was for me and my wife, with our two sons aged 7 and 9. The room was really hot and the hotel staff could only give us a small table fan which just blows hot air around the room. To say the least, we were NOT comfortable in the room at all as it was a particularly hot weekend. They said the aircon ought to work but it wasn't and they didn't seem to have the sense to offer us another room which was a disappointment. The kids were really excited when they saw the xbox in the lobby but disappointment quickly set in when they realised it only had two 'boring' games installed.

Enjoyable experience. Twin superior double suited my daughter and I & baby Leo!
