Staff and rooms brilliant. Parking was a bit of an issue. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, including coffee at a very late hour! The facilities were excellent and my party wanted for nothing.

Situated very close to the main shopping area. My room was facing the rear of the hotel and therefore it was very quiet, despite the adjacent major road. The room was very comfortable, helped by the Hypnos mattress. I didn't use the bar or restaurant as I was attending an event elsewhere in Reading

The location itself is excellent, a 2 minute walk to the shopping district, approx 5-8 minute walk to the main train station. There were tea and coffee facilities available in the room, there was also a hairdryer in the...

Very good rooms, excellent breakfast, evening meals not as good as they once were. Happy hour in the bar between 6-8pm which is fantastic value. Location is great for shopping and the hotel has limited parking although there is a large car park over the rd

1) The keys. Kept failing to work all the time, regardless of whether we kept them close to the mobile phone/credit card or not. Had to go to the reception at least three times, which, considering our tight schedule for the trip, was a waste of time! 2) It was only possible to open the window for a couple of...
