I went to Reading for a conference and stayed at this hotel for a very good price negotiated via the conference. The location is close to the train and coach station and many nice restaurants. The hotel staff is helpful, although they tend to be quite busy (which is not uncommon for an Ibis hotel anywhere).

Standard IBIS hotel with standard hospitality, across the world they have standard process. Location of hotel is good and strategic which make this hotel preferential. Apart of this I feel they are not maintaining the maintenance on regular basis. Front desk staff is extremely co-operative and very efficient.

We as a group of 10 cyclists stayed here for 1 night and the check in and accommodation (twin rooms) were great. Everything was nice and clean and prompt service at the small bar. The hotel is in the centre of Reading which isn't the most attractive of places but serves a purpose and did have various food outlets nearby...
