              Great location close to, but just outside the busy area of the city centre. Comfortable, spacious room. Included in the price was a nice cooked breakfast.

              Quite a bit of noise from RISC next door some nights. Bathroom had a damp smell.

              Easy check in ,friendly staff

              Building work right outside my window...Started work about 6:30 am which woke me up

              The staff were very helpful and friendly, and made us feel most welcome.Will certainly stay there again on our next visit to the town.

              A bit noisy from the street at night, but this was a Saturday and not totally unexpected.

              Just a few minutes walk from the centre. 24 hour access. Real Ale Bar and restaurant. Good breakfast included. Friendly and helpful staff. This was my second visit as I enjoyed my stay in 2009. Good value for money.

              Currently (May 2010) building work next door. Builders started at 0700 - should have been 0800 according to the hotel - good job I had earplugs. Hotel said they would speak to them about it. Steep stairs to top floor

              Friendly staff and great location and bar. Great value - no parking but Oracle nearby and value of room more than covers parking costs.

            • Family with children
              6.2

              Good central location in Reading. Good sized room

              No lift in hotel which was a problem for anyone with mobility problems -due to recent health problem I had difficulty struggling up the steep and winding stairs. There was no warning re lack of lift when I booked.Noise can be a problem -poor sound insulation between rooms meant that you could follow your neighbours conversation whether you wanted to or not. Fan in room covered in dust.

              it was clean and the service was good, also making you feel as your within a family with the service they offer..

              cannot recon on any...

              Very friendly stay although puzzled by attempt to cancel our visit on the day before booked stay because of a "flood"; when we queried this and asked if similar accommodation could be booked for us instead they then rang back to stay that infact our booking was not cancelled. We wondered if there had an error with the booking - possibly overbooking.

              It was in a good location handy to everything, large room but nothing flash. I loved the classic old English pub, one of the better ones in town. They served a great English breakfast for you hearty eaters - not my type of food. Also had tea and coffee facilites in room which was great. Overall a pleasant stay.

              Bottom sheet was too small for bed so it moved about. Cleaner wouldn't take my dirty towel even though I left it on the floor twice, had to ask for it to be taken. The cleaner must of had long dark hair as I found this on the bathroom floor and on the bed (though the sheets were clean).

              Good location, a lovely pub downstairs with great character that serves good food. I would stay again.

              Great expectations - it wasnt what I hoped for. The bedroom window wouldnt close - it looked like it had been like that for ages because there were vines / leaves climbing through it. Not very friendly for mobility impaired people - lots of stairs.

            • Group of friends
              8.8

              The cooked breakfasts are really good, and the staff is always friendly.

              Hotel have locked all the summ for 5 days on the card. Great Expectations do not meet any expectations, as one day room was floated from the silling and next day staff after clearning room did not close the door.

              2.8

              Absolutely non-sense hotel, the room was completely leaking and had a horrible time in the room. Checked in late in night and no one to attend the guest...complete mess. One of the most ridiculous hotel i have ever stayed. I will never ever refer this to anyone on my lifetime.Ridiculous hotel

            • Family with children
              6.6

              The location of the hotel is very good since it's only 5 minutes away from the city centre (on foot).

              1. The hotel staff messed up my reservation. 2. The room is quite old and there is no lift in the building. Series of staircases make it very inconvenient if you have got senior citizen with you along with big pieces of luggage. 3. Breakfast is usually served from 8-10 am but the staff was half an hour late so we all missed our breakfast.

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              Very comfy and we were looked after well.

              Difficulty with the parking.
