Rating by category:
The on-suite room was a reasonable size for 2 people, with tea making facilities, hair dryer and TV which were not mentioned in the advert. It was very near the Reading records office, where we were doing research, and the city shopping centre. The weekend breakfast was a smaller cooked version of the mid week one, rather than a continental breakfast.
The hot water was only just warm and it was not a power shower.
Decent hotel with functional yet unspectacular rooms. It was cheap and provided a perfectly acceptable bed for the night and a breakfast the following morning.
The breakfast wasn't particularly impressive, but then you can't expect too much at this low price.
good location for walking into town centre. good breakfast - promptly served but didn't feel rushed, although the tables were not efficiently cleared from other guests
there was only a single pillow case, stuffed full, but not especially comfortable
the cooked breakfast and coffee pleasant staff eager to help very polite would go there again
lack of storage space only had a 3 drawer chest for 3 people left clothes in cases
Good value, simple but comfortable, welcoming.
Having to change my room, although I was given a better room, it was slightly inconvenient.
average place, no bar facility as advertised. it is little more than a large house
I found this hotel great, having read some of the negative comments on here I wasnt sure what to expect, however it was fine. Yes a bit shabby in places but my room- room 16- was spotlessly clean, very good sized, the bed was comfortable and all the linen was fresh and clean, and the shower and small bathroom were also fine- lots of hot water. So no problems at all and the gentleman on reception when I checked in was very polite and pleasant.
My only issue would be that I had to check out before breakfast and I wasnt offered a refund of the breakfast money- which was included in the price of the room. Apart from that little niggle though it was fine.
The breakfast was ok
the place looks generally tired and needs an upgrade. I had to ask for a plunger to unblock the shower. lack of power outlets in room.
Free Wi-Fi; vending machine; close to the city centre; free parking
Could smell cigarette smoke in my room and on the landing; huge burn mark on the carpet; when having breakfast the server stood over me whilst I ate my cereal.
Walking distance to wonderful Riverside Restaurants
First night I got bugs bites.
Room was a bit tired looking and was in need of a bit of work.
Location near to town centre, good clean family room, very comfortable beds. Staff very helpful, good sized car-park. Full english breakfast very good, with good waitress service and polite.
The end of our stay!
