Paid for by my care agency. I arrived late in the evening. It was booked through click travel so it took them a while to find my booking. The reception monitor was very flickery which didnt help. I was shown to my room. All the room doors were blue and had brass numbers. Corridors lit with footlights. My room was clean and the single bed was comfy. Pillows were new. The bed wasnt flush with the wall because the wall was an odd shape..The room had a wardrobe and good lighting. Carpets were clean and nice The curtains blacked out the outside light well. My room overlooked a car park. The windows were dirty as were the fan blades of the fan in my room. There was a TV but it didnt havr a signal. It wasnt until the morning that I tuned it. Reception on TV was good.The en suite had a shower basin and toilet. There was a hair dryer in the bathroom. Dowmstairs is a Dickens themed pub and reteraunt. There are lounge areas and a pool table. I had a nice juicy burger and fries and a cold beer. A major issue I had was the weak wifi and phone signal.
I slept well and the hotel was quiet. In the morning I had a nice hot shower. I went down to breakfast. There was a selection of cereals and coffee and apple juice. I had nice poached eggs and toast with marmalade and a pot of tea. It was spoiled by the tv being on loudly showing paralympic table tennis when i wanted peace and quiet. I reccomend the hotel despite its flaws. But perfection is hard to obtain. Thank you team. You are a credit to your company. Keep up the good work

We had a couple of nights to fill in waiting for our house boat in Reading, so decided to book Great Expectations for the good price and the location. We booked 2 rooms for myself and my husband and a twin for the teenagers. The rooms were a wee bit tired, but clean and serviced their purpose. The staff were all super friendly. Breakfast was included in the price too.

Paid for a four poster bed and had two singles pushed together. Mattress was lumpy,bath curtain had mould and plumbing rattled so loud all night every 30-40 minutes that sleep was impossible.
Complaint was totally ignored
