I booked this as it was the cheapest option. And I was very impressed! Ok, there was a cracked tile and some peeling paint, but it was perfect. I booked a budget room, it had a fridge microwave plates cutlery free wi fi and ample parking. in fact everything you need for a cheap stay over in Reading. Get a...

My sister and I stayed in a lovely room in a little "cottage" right behind the main building. It was clean, very quiet, and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The beds had comfortable, with firm mattresses, and it didn't feel as though we were going to be tossed onto the floor if we shifted our weight. The...

I really like this place and it's unquestionably great value for money. The staff clearly try hard to offer a good experience to guests and it's so much nicer to stay in than a faceless budget chain room. Fridge and microwave are fab! There are some rough edges, but really nothing serious and I would happily stay again. The not...

The room has everything you need and is really comfortable. The bed is comfortable and the tea making facilities are top quality. Thee is a gym and bar on site, both of which are very good. Will definitely stay here again in he future.

Lovely hotel in a great location, close to shops and transport links. Room very comfortable and staff really friendly. Petra (Receptionist) is very helpful and friendly and showed us to our room. In the room we had a microwave, fridge, sink, safe and a lot more. Bed really comfortable and had a good nights sleep. Will definitely be back in...

Stayed for 3 days as was on a training course in the area, the hotel is a bit dated, but I guess you get what you pay for. The barman / reception guy was a decent and friendly. Biggest disappointment was the menu - only 4 things on there, although the Thai green curry was nice enough.

Thank you for your review. We are currently renovating the hotel including building nice new club rooms. I am glad you found our bar man helpful and friendly, he will be chuffed to receive your feedback. The bar menu has six items, it is not a huge menu however we do cook them ourselves they are not bought in so...

Stayed here for a weekend recently whilst at college. Hotel is split over a number of buildings, all close enough to the main building though. Hotel is quite old and tired and the corridor my room was in smelt like death. But the room didn't smell and wasn't too bad. Had a fridge, microwave and cooker in the room. Bed...

Such a shame to leave us a bad review without telling us you were unhappy with your room. I note from your reservation that you booked two BUDGET ROOMS, maybe you did not realise this. Budget rooms do clearly state that they are older style rooms waiting for refurbishment. If we had known you were unhappy we would have shown...

A great place to stay when visiting my daughter at university. The rooms are comfortable and ours came complete with fridge and microwave. Free parking and wifi added to the excellent value for money. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful.

When we arrived I was a bit disappointed to see scaffolding around the building and decorators were in. However I suppose there is never a good time to do these types of things when you have to keep the hotel ticking over and accommodate customers. The receptionist upgraded us so that we could have one of the newly decorated rooms....
