Really loved this hotel. Obviously basic but with nice touches. Big thank you to the staff who were so friendly and happy to advise us. Great location for all the shops, bars and restaurants. We stayed for a concert at the Arts Centre and this was only a 7 minute walk. Bar was open into the early hours!

As good as usual

the bathroom was dusty, the lamp on my room was not functioning, the telephone was missing and due to the roadworks in Reading I was unable to use your carpark therefore had to pay £21 TO PARK ELSEWHERE.

Great value for money

Welcoming staff at the front desk. The room I was in was located a long way from reception with a rabbit warren of stairs and corridors, but it was a pleasant, clean and quiet room.

Well located , lovely stay

When we arrived we found the road leading to the hotel car park was closed, I had to ring the hotel to get details of where we should park, it would have been nice to have been notified prior to our visit

Dear Manager - Mr Daniel Stuat, our Engineer booked to stay in your hotel for one night, in good faith. Unfortunately, your hotel was below standard and dreadfully dirty. The worst of it is the towels were filthy, recycling shower gel container very dirty and the toilet stained brown, the bed was very uncomfortable, that room was not fit for purpose, therefore totally unacceptable. Eng Patrick a. was extremely disappointed in his room. We hereby insist on a full refund of £74 money we paid for this disgusting room! We expect a full refund within the next 48hrs.

Then went to McDonalds!!...Thank hod for the location

Gc Friends - 10/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Good impressions to start with, but then you’re told the “breakfast included” only covers the continental breakfast and if you want the traditional you need to pay £6.95! Disappointed to say the least and if breakfast is included it should state that it only covers a continental breakfast. Room was comfy, particularly the bed. I’m not sure if anyone was below me, but if they were I’m sure they got annoyed at the creaky floor! One last thing, the TV only worked on one movie channel (classic black and white films!) all other channels just kept breaking up every 3 seconds! Could have complained at the time, but I was not there to watch the TV! if you are driving there m as me sure you park in the correct NCP car park so you can get it at a discounted rate. The post code on there website for the car park directs you to the wring one. To sum up it was a comfortable stay in an ideal location, make sure “breakfast” is included and make sure the items you put in your room do what they should do, work!

Dear Graham, Thank you for the great review of our hotel! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again very soon. Kind regards, Madhu

Dreadful, worst night's sleep for weeks

Customer review rating 3.4/5

Miss M. Solo - 10/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I asked for the quietest room possible. I got room 219 opposite Jackson's corner which is an extremely busy bus route coincidentally opposite a noisy pub. 219 has SINGLE GLAZED WINDOWS. People in the room above still were clomping around at 3am and floorboards creak. The room phone didn't work nor did the bathroom fan. The oil filled radiator heated well but was dangerous to use given it only had 2 wheels instead of 4. The room smelled like it had previously been a smoking room. Adjacent outside rooms 217 & 218 something was beeping constantly. One of the 2 milk pots on the tea tray had been opened and was empty. I had difficulty booking online and had to call reservations.

Hotel is clean and well located. However, it's like a mace inside and it can take quite some time to get to your room. Also, there is no life, not sure whether that is mentioned anywhere.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We hope to welcome you back to our hotel very soon! Kind regards, Madhu
