              • Family with children
                6.4

                Good size room, very nice breakfast, convenient for motorway, several restaurants nearby.

                As it was a family celebration ( my husband's 75th birthday ) we paid for 9 of our family to stay there with breakfast. We chose a hotel with a pool so that we could have fun together without having to find other attractions in the neighbourhood ( not much fun to do in Feb ). It was very disappointing to be told that the pool would be closed for most of the day after our arrival for work to be done. We were not told this the evening before. There was nothing for a baby and teenagers to do without this facility ( except for TV !!! )

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                Good location rooms very good ideal for what we wanted

              • Family with children
                10.0

                Brilliant front desk staff, facilities, cleanliness, ambiance,

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                Helpful, friendly staff. Elegant design and furnishings - it looked as though it had been recently refurbished. We only stopped one night as a convenient break between Heathrow and returning home to Cornwall. Close proximity to Reading station was a big advantage.

                One minor quibble: only Sky tv available in the room.

              • Single
                8.8

                location is excellent because its near the attractions and shopping malls and near the train station too.

              • Single
                10.0

                Very comfortable accommodation, with leisure centre facilities, efficiently run, in a very convenient location, at a reasonable price.

                On this occasion the sauna was out of order, which was a pity, but when I mentioned it when leave the staff member dealt with my comment very politely and promised to check the matter immediately.

              • Older travelers
                7.0

                Location is good.

                nice staff but poor service management.

              • Family with children
                9.2

                It was clean and there was every thing that we needed. Staff were nice. Location was good.

                Car parking was more expensive than the ncp and we couldn't find it.

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                very satisfactory

                cooked breakfast was disappointing for me personally. hubby was satisfied enough with it. rest of buffet was excellent

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                Efficient new-style hotel, high standards all round.

              • Single
                8.0

                The Hotel and room were spotlessly clean and the staff were polite and friendly.

                I visited the Hotel on a Saturday night and therefore the adjacent street was busy and noisy until the early hours therefore I did have difficulty sleeping.

              • Group of friends
                9.6

                Flexible staff. Nice rooms

                He lift program which seemed to go whereever called if you were in it, rather than to the floor you had requested (eg we've be going down 2 floors and suddenly we's being going up 10 floors instead)

              • Group of friends
                9.2

                Great location, excellent check-in, room was very confortable. In all great value for £59

              • Group of friends
                8.8

                Breakfast was good value, swimming pool and sauna facilities were excellent.

                Would have been nice to have had access to a TV, and not have to pay £15 for access to a TV.

              • Family with children
                10.0

                staff are brilliant, clean rooms, brilliant leisure facilities, good food, great location
