                • The price was very reasonable and the location was convenient, the hotel was good. Staff were friendly, the room was very neat and tidy.

                  The huge bed, breakfast too expensive at £15.

                • The location is great for a city break in Reading, hotel design is stylish and the staff on check inout have always been polite and attentive. The rooms are spacious, restaurant are was lovely.

                  The tv would receive no normal digital channels due to extremely poor reception and pixellation.
