Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I’d read some of the reviews and was wary about staying here. However, it was ok. The room was hot and it was a shame the sort to the balcony was locked. The hotel is tired and needs updating and some tlc and this was reflected in the room. The bed was clean and so was the bathroom. It was fine for a stop over for work.

My room was pleasant enough but the floor was very uneven and wobbly. I couldn’t close the window which was unfortunate with the road so close. I went down to breakfast at 8.30 and was asked the instant I walked in what I wanted for breakfast! No hello, no being shown to table. I wasn’t told what was available so I asked what was on offer. ‘Full English’ I was told - so I ordered some items. when other peoples’ breakfasts arrived they had hash browns - I would have ordered these if I had known. What really appalled me though was that I had corresponded with the hotel in advance to ask if they have gluten free items available. I was told that they don’t usually but that a note would be added to my booking stating that I need gluten free items at breakfast. I contacted the hotel again the day before arrival to confirm this. I ordered GF toast but none was available! I had to get quite cross about this before anything was done and eventually they produced some. My party and I waited about 30 mins for our food to arrive. After breakfast I was resting in my room when someone knocked and walked in before I had time to answer the door. She wanted to make the room up but I hadn’t checked out. All in all a very poor experience and I won’t be staying again.

I had to book a last minute business trip and nearly all other hotels booked up. This appeared and I thought its close enough to where I need to be. Really advise you if you are reading this to give it a miss. It is dirty and needs closing down. I don't know how it gets past any inspection. When i arrived at 7.30pm I asked if I need to book for dinner... the receptionist gave a little laugh and said no. When I got back down to the restaurant I was the only person in there,right up to when I left. The following evening I went to the beefeater 100 meters down the road. In the hotel everywhere I looked was filthy dirty. The owner obviously doesn't earn enough in the business to invest back in it. I would guess its not been redecorated in the last 10 years or more and probably not cleaned properly in the last year. The bedroom was dirty, bed linen soiled, hair all over the bathroom. Wifi wouldn't work at all both days. The room was hot, and as it didn't have air con the only way to cool the room was to open the windows and put a fan on. The room had a locked door onto a balcony with was home to several pigeons. On opening the windows not only was you greeted the the noise from the bust A4, you also had the stench of the pigeons and the droppings. If you book this hotel after reading the reviews you only have yourself to blame.

Room was clean and quiet with a good bathroom with full size bath as well as shower. Bed was a bit too hard for us, but you can't please everyone. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Rather than full dining facilities, the bar is also a dining area for pub-style meals. There are comfortable seats plus dining tables if required. The evening meals were reasonable quality and price. Breakfast was good and substantial. For £75 for a double room with breakfast included we thought our stay was good value for money. The hotel seems to cater for short stay guests especially for work. It's not a luxury holiday hotel. Given that, we would recommend it for a pleasant stop over.

The hotel itself is in much need of updating, although the car park is full of vans I was the only guest in the bar for food, no surprise I have had better food in a youth hostel. I was given an A4 piece of paper with the menu on £9.45 for a rustler burger, frozen chips and a beer that was like dish water. The room itself is dated and not very clean, and very very thin walls, the hot water takes for ever to come through and tiles are unclean. My advise to anyone thinking of staying here is don’t unless you don’t care about you inner organs health and you want a good night sleep wondering if your car is going to be there in the morning

Firstly, this hotel isn't in the centre of Reading. It's roughly 2 miles from the train station. There is a bus stop outside and a taxi is about £7.40. I stayed because I was attending a festival in Prospect Park next door so it was the perfect location. The park was in walking distance. If you are attending events in there be warned that there's no lighting so coming back across the (occasionally) rough terrain was a little laborious. The hotel itself is an interesting place. It looks as though it may have been converted from another business into its current incarnation. The front is nice but you appear to be entering into what was originally the first floor. The lift kind of gives that away from the buttons jump from ground to second floor. If you look through the grills in the car park you can see what was probably once the original ground floor (now listed as the basement). The hotel was clean and, for me, quiet. My room was a little difficult to find as the numbers jumped. It took a moment but my room (on the second floor) was beside a linen room. Very sunny room and the staff had left a fan in there. The bathroom was nice and there were plenty of toiletries. The only complaint was that the sink was blocked and took a while to drain. The shower was gloriously powerful and I made sure to enjoy that! The room had all the usual bits and pieces; hairdryer, TV, tea and coffee. Tea and coffee was in the desk cupboard. The bed was a little on the hard side and I found myself waking up at 4.30am. Breakfast was nice and included in the price. A cooked breakfast after a night of losing your voice singing was very welcome! The dining room was also fairly empty, which was also a blessing. The staff were friendly and helpful and provided information on buses and taxis, especially as I was leaving on a Sunday. Overall, a pleasant stay and would stay again.

I paid £58 for a room on a Saturday night via booking.com Room was clean an tidy, breakfast was great. Staff were very friendly. That’s the positives. The negatives are that the exterior of the property is not inviting, common areas need updating. I would bring a significant other here but ideal for a work stop over or a night out with friends.

This is so much worse than Premier Inn, Holiday Inn and Travelodge. It's a 2 star hotel at best yet much more expensive. My room was very shabby, a hair on the pillow of the bed, bathroom was mouldy, dust all over the TV etc. The Wi-Fi was practically non existent other than to check emails on the phone and whatsapp messages. Didn't even work on my laptop, let alone my Amazon FireStick. Outside was also shabby, cobwebs all over the place. No tea/coffee making facilities which I thought was pretty standard these days. All these for the small price of £89 for the night (not including breakfast). The sign outside says "Luxurious bedrooms". You are having a complete laugh!!
