I booked the hotel for my boyfriends 21st birthday as we were attending an event nearby. The hotel is very quirky and has lots of personality. I had emailed Ian prior to our stay to ask if we could arrange something nice for my boyfriends arrival. Ian went above and beyond and gave us a complimentary upgrade and a signed...

Hotel service was very good, but service at dinner/dance was poor. Bottle of wine excessively expensive at event. Room perfect. Good atmosphere in hotel. Reception staff friendly and helpful. Extended check-out time much appreciated. The heating could have been turned down a tad!

Thank you for your recent review. I am sorry to read that you felt the service at dinner was poor. We had been asked by the organisers to ensure service was finished by a certain time due to the start time of the show, and due to later than agreed arrival of some guests this meant that we are late...

Good stay, no frills but worth the money. Only downside was the heat in the rooms and the pounding music from the DJ in the lobby. Good breakfast. Not in the best part of town. But still would recommend

Stayed at the Pentahotel in Reading on Saturday 29th October. Thought the interior of the hotel was very modern. Staff were really friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious. Big plus was the location of the hotel as it a short walk from the town centre. Would recommend.

Overall, I have a pleasant stay at Pentahotel, but there are two things in my opinion, which need improvement: 1) right at the entrance in the reception area there is a stringent scent of cheap fragrance that is repugnant and lead automatically to conceive a second hand establishment; 2) there is not electric plug near the desk, neither one deliberately...

I stayed in this hotel for the second time in the last year. I was attending weekend meetings in Oxford, and stayed on the Saturday night. I booked a 'Penta Plus' room, with breakfast, and made a special request for a quiet room away from Saturday night street noise. The room was spacious and quiet. Pentahotel Reading is ideal for...

Staying for business. Room very spacious, funky bar/restaurant area which began with disco themed music at the beginning of the week, to slowly up-tempo'ing to funky dance by the end of the week, coupled with a glitter ball over the entrance area! Restaurant was nice; good service and tasty food. My only gripe - noisy dual carriageway outside the room...

The lounge looks really great, a free pool table was enjoyable. Nice sofas and a great place to have a nightcap of Bailey's before bed. The decoration was excellent!

A disappointing experience. Had secured a 10am checking earlier in the week with Amber but didn't get in the room til 11.35 at it wasn't available due to the 10am booking not being specified on the system. This meant my wife had to rush getting ready for a wedding. Not impressed. Chris Shorey.

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
