Positive Reviews

A warm welcome to Reading...

The front desk staff have earned many positive reviews for friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient customer service. Guests also appreciate that the staff are available 24-hours. The complimentary coffee and kids' toys in the lobby contribute to the overall pleasant atmosphere, too.

New and improved decor...

Though the property is older, the interior has recently been renovated to suit the hotel brand, and the new, modern decor is generally considered a great improvement. The reasonably speedy free Wi-Fi is also much appreciated.

Walking distance to city centre...

Though the hotel's immediate neighbourhood isn't the "prettiest," it is easily accessed from the highway and not too far from Reading city centre; guests report the walk into town takes 20-30 minutes, and a taxi trip home is quick and inexpensive. There's also a bus stop out front, with a 24-hour service.

Negative Reviews

Not the traditional English breakfast...

Though some guests are pleased with the free continental breakfast, the majority of diners seem to prefer a full cooked breakfast and consequently find the spread quite disappointing. Concerns have been raised about the freshness and quality of the items as well.

Third party parking...

Drivers generally dislike paying an additional fee to a third party for parking, and note that some areas are poorly lit. Free street parking is available in the area.

Luck of the draw...

While some guests report a quiet night, others have reported difficulty sleeping due to poor sound insulation between rooms as well as inconsiderately noisy guests. Housekeeping seems to be a little hit and miss as well. Many also struggle to find something to watch, as the television channels are quite limited.
