The rooms are really spartan and lack of basic handy features like towel hooks and hangers and furniture. Located in a sketchy neighborhood. Even though knew beforehand that we had to pay £3.99 extra for breakfast (another sign where one of the "B" is misnamed) but did not expect to have to pay extra for the coffee and tea. The...

For this price I expected filtered coffee and the croissants to be decent. No, the coffee they tried to serve me was instant and when I questioned the staff she...

Stayed here for over 6 months and saw a lot of changes, new beds, bedding decor. Big safe car park, breakfast was good and cooked to order. Manager and his wife very welcoming and could not do enough to help. Best pup in Reading at the bottom of the road. Bonus.

On the positive side the owners were very friendly and pleasant at all times. However I paid £60 for a tiny room with a single bed. The TV never worked - I could not get reception for most of the channels. The hotel claimed they had free wireless but I could never access it and the staff availabe when I...
