We enjoyed the stay at Reading town centre. Marissa and Hugo are very nice and helpful. They patiently explained the parking arrangements to me. I recommend the tourists and visitors (leisure or business) to experience the fantastic times at Novotel.

Nice, clean hotel in town.

We loved using the pool, the hotel was clean, staff friendly and location excellent.

Good stay but....

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Great hotel, great staff but.... We used the Post Code to find the hotel and then the signs to the hotel car park only to find that the hotel car park is being revamped. Much time was wasted, especially when a postcode was provided for an alternative multistory car park. Eventually the actual name of the Broad Street Mall was provided. The other issue was the disrupted night caused by the local 'nightlife'.

Well located, staff really friendly
