Malmaison Reading

18-20 Station Road, Reading RG1 1JX England
Certificate of Excellence
The brief encounter, that fleeting glance from across the platform, a longing to be with the one you shouldn't...Meet me outside the station at this gloriously converted rail hotel. You shouldn't have this much fun so close to Heathrow, but you will at Mal. You shouldn't find a train set in your room, or a bath big enough for two, for that matter.

We started in the bar where we had a 15 minute wait to be served, despite there being 3 staff behind the bar only one was serving. We ordered two cocktails and paid for these, the barman said he'd bring them over to our table. This took a further 10 minutes for him to make and de

10 of us ate hear last night and it is difficult to find anything positive to say . The food was dreadful, cold over cooked , under seasoned and poorly presented. The only good thing about the evening was that they let us eat for nothing.

Yeah, okay the view from the room was horrendous. So don't look. The thick net curtains hid this view during my stay. But what the view lacked, the room and hotel more than made up.
Useful to have a decent size clock in the bathroom. Without my glasses on, I can still keep track of the time.

what are the parking arrangements and how close is it to the hotel
use the station car park, or better still leave the car at home it is a very good location for central walking, close to station and the shops.

Hi, I am looking at booking your hotel for my husband's 60th Birthday, on the 19th of November , my daughter lives in the area and I was wondering if I could pay for 4 extra people to have breakfast with us.
It's a normal restaurant as well, so anyone can walk in and pay to have breakfast / lunch / dinner.

Is it possible to leave one bag with the hotel after check-out and return to pick it up the same evening between 6pm - 7pm ???
Good afternoon, It is of course possible, all you need to do is to ask reception and they will organise the safe keeping of your luggages for you. Kind regards, Marie
