Close to town comfortable stay

When I checked in, I was assisted by the hotel staff. They were friendly and helpful throughout my stay. The room itself was nice. The basic things you would expect to have in a hotel room were present, including wifi. A tower fan was also provided which made the stay great since I stayed right in the middle of a heat wave. Overall it was good value for what I paid.

All round a great hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Really liked the style of the bar/ reception/ dining area. Ideal for my business trip. Already considering a social trip and this hotel is a definite consideration.

Just stayed overnight as attending hospital the next morning. Lovely bar and eating area, and room was well kitted out and clean. Staff very helpful and attentive. Great location for central Reading.

No hot water!
No hot water in the morning so no shower before heading off for business trip left me unimpressed. No recompense offered. The room was what I expected for the price I paid - small and basic but adequate for a one night stay for business. Very handy for Oracle shopping and restaurants.
