Lawn Hotel
Ranked #12 of 17 Reading B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 May 2017

Upon our arrival the hotel looked really grotty!! The front looked as though a bomb had gone off over it, all external decor shabby and in need of urgent attention. Scaffolding and building materials everywhere in yard, no safety barriers or cordons. No marked parking spaces, just weed infested grounds. Owner flitting between hotel and adjacent hotel (park international). I witnessed the owner walk into the hotel whilst smoking a cigarette, a blatant disregards to the law (no smoking in business premises). Very arrogant staff on arrival and not helpful. Cannot understand English - didn't even bother checking in as I wouldn't board a dog there!!! Sought accommodation elsewhere as I wanted an inhabitable hotel, not a s@*thole!!! Avoid at all costs. Marked as 1 star as had to select a grade otherwise I would have rated -5

Room Tip: Go to a different hotel.

Everything about this so called hotel just made my skin crawl and the receptionist that was present on arrival was definitely the most ignorant,arrogant staff member of a business I've ever come across in my entire life...The rooms wer grubby and faded,The fried breakfast in the morning was inedible to say the least...the asian cook looked like she didnt see a bar of soap in at least a week...definitely a no no...complete in utter dump!

It looks like a massive revamp going on here, when we arrived we had to check in at the nearby International Parkside Hotel next door. Our room was ok if a bit small. Bed was comfortable. We had to go across to the Parkside the following morning for breakfast . No menus on the tables so it was all guess work, staff were not that good at communicating which made for a very strange atmosphere

Nice size room clean and comfortable. Plenty of free parking. Breakfast decent quality and seemed plenty of choice. A good walk out of centre and 1 hour walk to the football. Didn't seem to be much nearby, there is a beefeater pub 200 yards away. Didn't look at evening food so can't comment. Only strange thing I had booked lawn but was allocated a room next door in the park side.

Stayed here for 3 nights while working near by, clean room (7) lovely and warm. Great shower an plenty of room. Good price for a twin room an not to far off the M4 for access. Breakfast also very good not massive but enough for to get you started for the day. Would definitely stay again when working in the area.
