We ate here for a special birthday tea and it was very nice. You can choose from a cream tea, full afternoon tea or a champagne afternoon tea, There are a selection of sandwiches, plain and fruit scones with jam and cream, and some lovely cakes. The hotel is lovely and conveniently located in the town centre.

I had booked an apartment for a weekend so we had a bit of space for my young family. Staff at check-in tried to tempt me with an upgrade to a superior room which was amazing. Sadly we had to refuse as needed the space for my family. They couldn't do enough to show us around and made us feel...

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. It was very new and a great size for 2 adults and a teenager. Staff were very attentive and helpful during our stay. Great city centre location and would definitely recommend - a hidden jewel!

Our stay in the Forbury Apartments was outstanding. The two bedroom suite, full kitchen, dining and family room was spacious, attractively appointed and most quiet. We chose the Forbury for its easy access to public transportation and railroad depot. Staff was most gracious as well and helpful in accommodating all needs. Main hotel's decor was exquisite. We would highly recommend...

We had the most perfect weekend for our Anniversary at the Forbury Roseate in Reading. Right from the start the lovely receptionist offering to park our car as we couldn't find the car park made things exceptional. We normally stay at Malmaison but we gave the Forbury a try for a change. So glad we did, we will only return...

We were a group of 15 girls staying in 4 apartments including the penthouse apartment, which had a huge living area with wonderful views and also a sauna! The facilities were great and the staff were very warm and happy to assist. Very central location and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
