The REALLY Great House
Surprising value for money given the location and spec of the accommodation. (Don't take that as license to increase the prices!) The staff were friendly and efficient. The fit and finish of the rooms is genuinely excellent. The wifi is more than capable. I didn't get an opportunity to take advantage of the restaurant during this stay, but will be back regularly over then next few months so I'll make time to check it out. One word of caution: if you are allocated room 12 or 14 you will be above the kitchen/back office, and the boys and girls in the galley can make a bit of a racket as the evening wears on. The road to the hotel can be congested at peak times, but that is just the nature of the beast. Don't hesitate to book.

Brilliant hotel but the restaurant lets it down
Positives: Good sized double room, well decorated rooms, very comfy bed and shower (no bath though which doesn't bother me). Ground floor room faced right onto the car park but we only stayed one night so it didn't bother us. Absolutely beautiful location beside the Thames. Very quintessentially British. Hotel staff were brilliant too. Only negative was Coppa Club restaurant. We were up for a few cocktails then in/out dinner. We had two cocktails served over 1 hour 45 min. Dinner was terribly and painfully slow service. We arrived for 1830 and finished dinner at 2100. There were only two of us. No attempt to apologise or make it better. We were that tired of waiting for service that we walked across to the other side of the restaurant to pay our own bill. We were hesitant about going there the next morning for breakfast but there is little choice in the area so we did (surely it can't be terrible again?) and again the service was terrible. Breakfast sitting at 0945 and already we were told there was no bacon left. Bacon was in just about all the meals. They served me something I had specifically requested not to have. Therefore my partner had finished his meal when mine finally came out. Service was still slow. Advice to hotel - get a new restaurant tenant.

Comfortable hotel with character & modern comfort
Business stay for work in Reading. Very pretty area, but traffic in and out at rush hour can be busy. Nice hotel with comfortable modern décor. Restaurant in hotel is good, but also other restaurants nearby. Breakfast cooked to order and brought to table which was nice. Very comfortable bed and good working desk. Good coffee/tea facilities in room with fresh milk. Friendly, helpful staff.
