Good location and value (Friday stay)

A happy stay!
I had a delightful 4day stay. The Crown Plaza is very good value in a good position. I would have rated it 5*, had it not been for some misinformation at reception and lack of refilling coffee and biscuits on the tray in the room on one morning.Having said that, it was a bank holiday and the weather was very hot, but the staff coped admirably with lots of people and a full house.

Standard room only booked, but lovely big comfortable bed and good size room very quite. Would defiantly go again
Patricia, gb3 night trip
Crowne Plaza Reading
£200 for a small twin room on the main road was not acceptable. I actually thought the windows were open it was that noisy in my room. I will say that the staff are very nice but couldn’t help as the hotel was fully booked

Avoid breakfast
Wish we hadn’t pre-paid for breakfast - over priced & a waste of money. Utter chaos. Waited ages to be seated as tables hadn’t been cleared. Only scrambled egg, cold bacon, dried up beans and mushrooms on offer on hot buffet. No bread to make toast and no-one offered us tea or coffee. The bedroom was immaculately clean and the bed very comfortable, however we didn’t get much sleep due to the appalling behaviour of other guests - not the hotel’s fault.
