    close to University. Receptionist when I checked out was friendly - shame the older guy when I arrived wasn't as polite. Basic but everything worked (just)

    Initimidating when I arrived as solo traveller - bar did not look welcoming. Every floor board creaked, carpet not fitted properly, grubby furniture, poor plumbing and nowhere to put the towels in the bathroom as window not double glazed could hear busy road all night.much better off in a travel lodge!

    I liked the hotel because it was near the part of Reading I was visiting.The Car parking is good. The staff friendly and food adequate.

    Peaceful away from city noise but only a busride awayand a night bus was a bonus

    I prefer buffet breakfast to set menu

    I paid £30 for a single room without ensuite and instead got one with ensuite without any further charge. Room was OK, a bit damp-smelling, bed was OK, breakfast was OK. But then I only paid £30!

    The breakfast was nice.

    Not worth the price I paid. Needs a serious clean and makeover.

    Friendly staff, had its own car park, bacon & sausage at breakfast was yum (and I don't normally like sausages).

    Narrow stairs with no lift, small beds (ie a double divan split to make 2 singles), shower head wouldn't keep position, no sky tv in room - all these are little things not to complain about given the price paid - it didn't stop me enjoying my stay.

    Value for money, pleased with service, would have liked dinner to be served a little later than 20.30, but more my fault for not being able to arrive until 20.00 thanks again, very happy.

    Cheap and good location.

    Sink tap needed replacing, lock on door temperamental, toilet seat chipped, the whole place needed refurbishment. Breakfast finished at 9am and on arrival at 8:50 the waiter was grumpy and impolite.

    Small hotel without any stars kept by very nice and urbane Indians. No problems. Bedclothes and towels chanhed every day.

    Bathroom not so clean. English breakfast only.

  • Family with children

    The staff were good and we got a good reception.

    The hotel furniture needs to be replaced. There is a characteristic smell within the rooms. The shower in room 45 is out of orderi It keeps droping on you. The place needs renovation and give it a good new outlook.

    The staff were most helpful and the room was clean and comfortable.

    I thought that it was very expensive for what was very ordinary accommodation.

    Friendly staff ,good breakfast, t.v in room wasn't working when i arrived, some one came and fixed it straight away

    Reception was pleasant enough and the breakfast was very good. Also seemed to be ample parking. The garden too was surprisingly large with patio tables and chairs. The staff we met were polite and helpful.

    The room we were allocated was in the old part of the hotel (it looked like there were modern annexes built on) reached by a narrow, quite steep, winding staircase - difficult to manage when carrying luggage. The bed was clean and comfortable but poorly furnished and had definitely seen better days - perhaps in the sixties?
