Very good place to stay in Reading!! We have staid there on weekend and I can say there is the perfect location close to town center, stylish and modern venue with friendly and helpful stuff. The breakfast on Sunday morning was great as well. One more fantastic bonus for our stay was lazy check-out option at 3pm on Sunday which...

Excellent Value on a Saturday night. Staff very helpful - Member of staff walking past vending machine on 6th floor at 2.30am when our crisps got stuck - he immediately went and fetched keys, retrieved crisps and delivered to our room!!

This is a very stylish and laid back hotel. It's situated in an ideal place for going into the town. Although it doesn't have its own car park there are plenty nearby. The staff are really helpful and we enjoyed the food. Saturday afternoon huge numbers of us were arriving from across the UK for an event. We wanted a...

The room was very spacious, extremely comfortable bed and very clean. Lovely large towels. Staff were very accommodating and friendly. Nice ambiance at this hotel. Great central location only minutes walk into the town centre. Very competitive price. An all round lovely experience. Would definitely stay here again.

Hotel was very clean and nice in the evening. During the day, however, it was very gloomy and dark. Staff friendly, although they were dressed unprofessionally and one in particular smelled rather unpleasant. Room very good - clean and excellent bed,bed linen ,nice bathroom.

A friend and I have just returned from a one night stay here. We found the hotel online and paid a great price for the room (£63). We booked so we could go out for the night and not worry about getting a taxi back home to Basingstoke! The hotel is very tastefully decorated; modern, fresh and a bit funky....

The room was clean. The breakfast was very nice. Lots of variety and good food. The only thing that was missing was more closet space and if there was a refrigerator it would have been perfect. The staff was always polite and available to answer any questions and concerns.

Staff very friendly and helpful but you just get that feeling that they can't wait to get out of there. Rooms were basic and clean and the free bottle of water beside the bed is a nice touch. The pillows were not to my liking and there weren't any others. Do people really like 2 single duvets on a king...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am sorry to read that you felt the team were keen to leave. I am very proud of the team we have in place but will most certainly discuss your comments with them as I'm sure they will be disappointed that a guest has thought this. It is a...
