This hotel is directly above an Indian restaurant and located in the heart of Reading. In fact, breakfast is served in the Indian restaurant. Considering the price, this is not a bad little hotel. Rooms have a TV (which works with no promotional channel, thankfully), kettle, iron, en-suite etc but no safe. Although the rooms are small they are still...

Great location, as you are located right in the centre of the town, with a 5 minute walk to the train/bus station. The hotel itself while a bit basic, was clean and tidy and a decent price. While the shower in my room was poor, this one con was made up for by the staff who were outstanding; friendly, helpful...

Clean and tidy. Room was large and decent. Had a faint smell of curry as we where above an Indian Restaurant but all in all worth the money. Staff where very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent. Buffet style and warm and fresh. Will stay again when in Reading.

Hotel seemed fine on arrival however it went down hill after that. My room was directly above the curry house which I believe is part of the hotel as breakfast is served there in the morning. My room smelt of curry throughout my stay my colleague who was in the next room could not bare the smell and ended up...

Lovely decorated room but double bed seemed more like a large single. The staff were very happy and friendly towards us. I think the room was a little over priced for one night (£169) as I've stayed in other hotels with the same quality but cheaper. Breakfast was nice but the hot food was packed away before we 10am. Hotel...

Stayed here for one night, just as an easy option. Hotel was spotlessly clean. Our room was beautiful, a twin which actually had a single and a double bed. Clean crisp linen. The toiletries were lovely too. View wasn't that great but we hadn't gone for that. Yes, it was warm but it was a hot humid evening. The fan...

I didn't choose this hotel. Thankfully only had to stay for 1 night. The room was unbearably hot and this wasn't helped by a bathroom radiator that was too hot to touch and couldn't be turned off. Even with the windows open it was impossible to get cool air. there was a fan in the room which kind of says...
