Was an okay stayPosted Sep 20, 2013
Pros: The staff were nice and polite.
Cons: The foam in the bed was flat - made for an uncomfortable night.
Location: The Reading Town Centre was ~5 mins away with nice mall and places to eat (2 McDonalds, a Starbucks and more)
Hotel staff was pleasant, but bed was not the best!

Good HotelPosted Sep 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
LOVE THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE SMOKING ROOMS!!!!!!!!! Not very often you find this in a hotel... We stayed here for Reading Festival and it served our us excellently.

overpriced, underdeliveredPosted Jun 30, 2013
Pros: close to Reading
Cons: Price Amenities Staff
manager was ok but all the other staff were disappointing. Could not get a full nights sleep. First night there was a constant dripping noise above the bed. Changed rooms. Second night the kitchen staff banged doors and crashed bins when they were finishing up. Third night kitchen staff spoke (shouted) to each other at 5:45am below our window. Hotel may have seen better days - its just hanging together now and the price was outrageous. Go somewhere else if given a choice - we didn't have that option.

Don't eat there...Posted Jun 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
Unfortunately I had to stay for a second time in the same hotel. The food is really bad I'm afraid. If people like me go there only for one or two nights for business and not for holidays so they have work to do and no time to eat somewhere else, it is better to buy something from the super market. It will be far better and healthier..

AveragePosted May 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
Parkside International sounds grand and opulent- the entrance to the car park and the car park quickly dispels it. Though the foyer and reception raise hope. Room was spacious and functional and clean. Though the sound proof layer was non existant. All in all toy my purpose a one night business stay it sufficed and was within budget

An Ideal Hotel for An Overnight StayPosted Jan 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
The room was very reasonable, with a few minor stains on the carpet and shower curtain. It might have been good to be informed about the procedure for returning late at night, as I had to wait for the one person, at reception, to let me in. The staff during my stay felt limited, especially when I had to check out, and the one member of staff was in the kitchens of the restaurant. The location was convenient, particularly in relation to the locations on Tilehurst Road. The shower was very easy to work, and the Wi-Fi seemed fair for a general use. Overall, this was an ideal for an overnight stay, with some of the basic faculties done well.

Alarming experiencePosted Oct 15, 2012 on Hotels.com
We booked this hotel due to the convenience location to our work. The food at the bar was good, but quite expensive. The toilet seat in the room was broken as was the toilet roll holder. We had to request a spare toilet roll. The door to the balcony was drafty, the door handle missing and would not lock, which made the room noisy as it was on a busy main road. After an early start we went to bed at 10.30 pm only to be woken by an hotel alarm at 11.15 pm and then 3.15 am and also at 7.15 pm. We initially thought the alarm was due to some device in the room and ended up unplugging the t.v. etc. Another guest confirmed the alarm went off throughout the hotel and staff had told him to ignore it!! In the morning there was no mention of the alarm by members of staff, no apology. Finally, the breakfast was good, but I had thought it was included in the price - o.k. my mistake. I would not recommend this experience to anyone. This certainly did not give value for money.

All okay, except no cash machine nearby, and the bedroom window did not shut properly. A few scuff marks here and there on the walls, but for that area quite reasonable value. No problems with the staff.
