2/10 Poor

Did not feel safe, clean or comfortable
On site parking great. The building is in disrepair- holes in the walls and doors, graffiti on the doors, very old and unclean. It smelt like cannabis on the top floor. Did not feel safe or comfortable here. I was travelling for business and will not be going back. I ended up sleeping on the towels on the bed and not using a duvet as it didn’t feel clean. I woke up with a cough the next day- haven’t coughed since leaving there or before going. Smelt like urine on the stairs- there was a communal toilet by the stairs. Windows were dirty and old curtains that I didn’t want to touch. Should have read the reviews. It either needs knocking down or a complete renovation. I checked out early and went to work early to not be there. Check in was old fashioned- written invoice and the exact same amount of the room cost was withdrawn from my account from the card I used to book 2 days before arriving. I was then told this was not the hotel and I had to pay again on the day. This resulted in a fraud case being opened by the bank to recall that money and my card being cancelled.

Good little budget stay
The Hotel is nice overall, not 5 star by any means but the romm was spacious the bed was good, could do with extra pillows and a more modern shower system. Air con would be a bonus. But overall was a decent stay if your on a budget

Brief stay in Reading
Standard hotel in reading that could not meet basic business needs due to poor wifi connection. Room was basic and really having stayed here will sort other hotels in the area if I return to the region in the near future.

2/10 Poor

Filthy, dirty and run down. Not recommended.
Fithy dirty and very run down. Stank of smoke. Tv didnt work, dirt, hair and dust in every available corner, decoration badly done and in disrepair, graffiti in hallways, curtains not attached to rails so couldnt open them. Shower one solid stream of water. Spiders alive and dead on ceiling and wardrobe. Light fitting smashed. Grubby and horrible. Never stayed anyway like it and definitely wont be returning.
