We stayed at the hotel as we were running the reading half marathon. I liked being able to check-in in advance and that I received a text when my room was ready. (Which was before I arrived) The room was perfectly adequate and had everything we needed. Great water pressure in the shower, beds were comfortable. There is a small...

Booked this hotel as we were attending a function in the town center so it was perfect. Check in was quick and staff were welcoming. The rooms were a good size, clean and modern. My only gripe was that we booked an executive room and had friends that also booked this hotel who had a standard room and there weren't...

Stayed here for one night on a recent trip to reading. The hotel does exactly what it says on the label.The rooms are large with very comfortable beds and sofas. We found the separate toilet and bathroom a bit unusual but it's not a complaint just an observation. A nice touch is the pool and spa area,quite unusual in this...

I stayed at the hotel the night before running the Reading Half Marathon. I paid a bit extra for an executive room and asked for a quiet room , hoping to get a good night's sleep. Our room on the 9th floor delivered on that front - I hardly heard a thing and slept well on a very comfortable bed....

This hotel is in the town centre and great for public transport, we booked an executive room for a small premium and were very happy with the room facilities. The only concern really was that the shower tended to splash water on the bathroom floor as it had no door (by design). The view from the room was pretty much...

Stayed for one night with husband and two children. Lovely pool with sauna/steam room. Bar area and food really lovely and highly recommended. In a great central location. Rooms a little on the small side for 4 people but still comfortable.
