This hotel in central Reading has all the usual Premier Inn facilities at the usual high standard except a car park. When parking across the road in the Oracle centre it was difficult to find a place on a Saturday afternoon and also very expensive.

Near the town center, a little noisy on the fly over. A usual Premier Inn, no frills but clean and comfortable. Good check in and service. Breakfast was a buffet and great value. If you dont mind the lack of frills and just want a night for a short stay this is ideal. It does what it says on the...

Why because from about 6am there was a delivery of boxed bikes and crates of what I don t know being dragged into the Premier inn along the car park. The lorry drivers were talking loud. Also there was a dull sound of music or it was some boiler noise . Our room was on the first floor looking out...

This is a typical city property, easy to find and close to major roads. Parking is a problem especially if you arrive late and the adjacent car park is full. The Oracle car park is across the street but is not very convenient.

Dear Ian J, Thank you for your review following your stay with us here at Premier Inn Reading Central.

My hotel of choice when staying in central Reading. Usual Premier Inn quality, great value, particularly at weekends, and friendly staff. Location is great and the only downside is a small car park that fills very quickly. The Oracle car park just across the road provides a reasonable substitute if necessary.
