Great location, clean, modern. Room was nice with a massive bed. Check in and check out was quick and easy. Love the Sunday late check out! Multi story car park was just a few minutes walk away. Would use penta hotels again.

We stayed in the Gamer's Suite and it was an absolutely amazing experience. Upon entering the room there was a dining area with a beautiful 4 seater wooden table and a large window. A partial wall separated the dining area from the sitting room with a huge, comfy leather sofa and 2 leather chairs. There was another large window and...

I stayed with a friend and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel was everything the pictures described and more. I found it much more exciting than say the Travel Lodge across the road, which is the same as almost every other Travel lodge I have seen. The decor, the bar, -I wish I tried the food, the tv, showers...

We had a sales meeting in Reading and our group decided to stay at Penta Hotel. The staff which I had the pleasure of meeting were all so welcoming and professional. From the moment we checked in and all through our stay, everything exceeded our expectations. In particular, Peter Huchinson deserves a mention as he was very helpful. Will definitely...

This was a return visit and we were not disappointed. Check in is at the bar but was smooth and we were soon in our room. We opted for a Penta standard room and although smaller than the Penta Plus rooms it still afforded the same level of comfort . A superking bed was really comfortable and we slept really...

Stayed here for one night without breakfast. The corridors a little dark but inside the rooms are nice and the shower was great too. Used the gym in the morning which was decent. The best thing was the 3pm late check out because of the bank holiday!

Had a weeks stay here for business. Had been advised to ask for quiet room and so glad I did. Lovely big room, very quiet on 5th floor. Huge comfy bed, nice bathroom with great shower and nice toiletries. Great desk for working and loved the footstool. The problem I have with this hotel is the internet, the worst I...

This hotel is within walking distance of rail, shopping, good restaurants and pubs. The staff were friendly and helpful explaining the bill. The soundproofing must be good, because I hardly heard anything from other rooms. The decor is not that of a standard chain, but it is not odd in a way that would get in the way of functionality...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
What makes us a cut above the rest is the way we do things. We have designed the pentahotel Reading to be simple and pentastylish, to provide excellent value for money, create a pentafun and relaxed space with service that is welcoming and personal. All of this not only makes us the newest hotel in Reading, but also your neighbourhood lifestyle hotel. The perfect place to eat, drink and relax is the pentalounge, our „lifestyle lobby“ that multi-functions as a reception, bar, and café, perfect as a neighbourhood hub. No matter what brings you to Reading, there is always time to have a look around. There are the medieval Abbey ruins, historic rivers and of course the majestic Thames Valley countryside to inspire you. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy you could also try out some of the local restaurants or pubs or the fabulous shopping at the Oracle and Broad Street malls. ... more   less
