Pleasantly surprised

Posted Jul 8, 2017
Pros: Convenient location for my purpose. Car park which is good for Reading where parking is expensive.
Cons: Room furnishings could be updated.
Location: 10 mins walk from central shops etc.
Warm welcome on check in. Very hot weather but my room was at the cooler back of the hotel that didn't get the afternoon sun and window opened. Lovely clean bathroom and shower. Room furnishings a little dated but clean and good tea making facilities. Breakfast of cereal and toast was fine for me, cooked breakfast was available. Friendly staff. Good car park which I didn't need to use this time but will in the future. Friendly staff.

Over priced b n b Not a Hotel.

Posted Mar 10, 2017 on Hotels
Very basic b n b. I booked a single room with Continental breakfast for £59.00, then paid £5 extra for the "full" English. 1 sausage, egg, bacon and a couple of spoons of beans plus toast. Continental was choice of 3 cereals and some fruit. Room was very small, cramped, half-height cupboard for a wardrobe. Clean but more a Contractors b n b than a business or leisure "hotel". Free parking the major bonus.

Ideally placed if you're going to the Hexagon

Posted Dec 9, 2016 on Hotels
I was attending a gig at the Hexagon and I didn't want to drive home afterwards. The Crown Lodge was ideally suited for this purpose and there is plenty of parking on site. The staff were very helpful, the room itself was a bit tired, but the price and location made up for this. Next time I go to the Hexagon I would happy to stay here again.

Too expensive just for few hour sleep and the breakfast time was ridiculous. I mean like who gets up between 8&9 for breakfast?? I hope it was included with the price I paid. If so I want my refund

Good B&B, small and clean. Little noise because of some of the guest, but not too bad.

Pros: Cute and clean.
Cons: Sorry....they cannot change their location...it was a little noisy.
Location: Walking distance from the Hexagon.
We only stayed one night....the hotel was clean, the rooms are cute and the staff is very friendly and considerate. Not the greatest location, but close to what we needed.
