Weekend break with friends
An excellent stay over the weekend with friends. A great hotel on the riverbank of the Thames. This is the second time we have used this hotel and as before an excellent standard throughout.

Very Pleasant Stay
Very pleasant stay at The Crowne Plaza, Reading. Central location for our needs. Very comfortable room with all the essentials provided. Friendly staff and courteous at all times. Thank you. Would highly recommend.

Crowne Plaza Reading
Very disappointing for a four star hotel. Have been visiting annually for over twenty years and this will be the last. Decoration is tired, chipped tiles in bathroom. Staff inattentive and not welcoming or even bothered to talk to me as I left. Wanting to enjoy a drink with friends on the terrace over looking the river but was surrounded by cigarette butts and rubbish.

Surprisingly good Crowne Plaza
We stayed here one night in early July and were very pleasantly surprised, as the hotel provides a level of facilities and service even better than we expect from a average Crowne Plaza. The hotel is well located on the river and perfectly situated for walks up & down the river. The shops and city centre restaurants are ca. 1 mile away. There is plentiful and secure car parking and the hotel is pet friendly and modern. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, whether check-in or restaurant staff. The rooms are modern and spacious, with good TV, very comfortable beds/pillows and good bathroom with decent shower in bath type arrangement. Breakfast is good - typical English standard with well cooked food and even Starbucks coffee available, if you're prepared to pay a little extra. We enjoyed our stay and will return next time we're in Reading.
