Lovely room, comfy bed, great shower and spotlessly clean. We were only here for one night and didn’t get the chance to use the bars but they looked great. Staff were friendly. We ended up parking at the railway car park as it was the nearest but be warned it’s very expensive- £33 for 17 hrs because it spanned two days!

We stayed at the Market House last year due to its central location. The hotel is very clean but the rooms are more like being in an aparthotel as there are no breakfasts served during the week but there are several good breakfast places nearby. The only downside is that there is no onsite parking.

Our room was large, clean, extremely comfortable. Fast check in and check out. We also liked the espresso machine in the room. The room is tastefully decorated. We would be happy to come back. The hotel is in the center, close to the main street. No noise from the outside . Lots of places to eat are close.

We booked to stay here through booking.com , A few weeks later they decided to cancel our booking out of the blue, when we spoke to reception it turns out they worked out they could get more money due to the regatta being on so wanted more than double for the same room. now we are left with all other hotels in the area being at a premium.

We stayed for 2 nights. The manager was so nice and helpful as there was a little confusion over the booking. Completely professional and resolved the issue. The room was really comfortable. The shower was amazing - the best every. If I visit Reading again I will certainly return.

Stayed for one night catching up with friends. Great location, for shopping and for all the restaurants/bars in Reading. Check in was really easy and the room was great, we had a twin room which was clean and had everything you needed. Beds really comfy. Shower was probably one of the best we have had in a hotel, really hot and powerful. They also have a roof top bar, so was lovely catching the sun and enjoying the cocktails they had on offer. Would definitely stay again!

We really enjoyed our time here - we ate in the restaurant ( twice) and really enjoyed the food both times. The staff are excellent - really friendly and helpful. The cocktails are wonderful way to start an evening. Just outside the door and you are right in the heart of Reading and a few minutes walk to any restaurant or club you might want.

I stayed for 3 days and have to say that it was a lovely time. The room was on the second floor, clean, spacious, and quiet. The hotel manager made sure I could study comfortably. My room was cleaned every day, and you could see that nothing was a problem. I will be back next month :)

Spent 4 nights at the Market House and it was my first time. I was pleasantly surprised about the spacious room. It was decorated with a lot of love to detail and the bedding was super comfy. I slept like a baby! Very clean, lovely fluffy towels. Only two things missing: power plug in the bathroom and a little wardrobe to put my cloths. But I made due without issues - I'm generally pretty uncomplicated. Staff was super friendly - hello to Kasia! :) And communication with Andreea beforhand was also very easy and lovely! Location is very central. Close to train station, shops, bars, restaurants, etc. I'll be back soon. :)
