Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rickardo Disappointing Night
We expected more from an Executive Room with Riverview. Room was not very big-nowhere to sit if we had room service which was our intention. Riverview was not very good and extras for two people were one bottle of water and one bathrobe!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alvera 53 brilliant hotel
a hotel with no faults is hard to find but if you want one look no further than the crown plaza reading My wife and I always stay there when we come up to reading to visit our daughter and family and wouldn't stay anywhere else and always look forward to our next visit.We would highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BJP31 Great service from Waiter!
My sister and I arrived back to the hotel
quite late but we received fantastic service
from Rory he was working behind the bar and also
serving bar meals. It was a busy night
in the bar but Rory was extremely polite and helpful
he has a lovely personality and is a real credit to your
company !! The other guy who was serving behind the
bar was not so polite and his customer service
has a lot to be desired ! I did not get his name.
But Rory was excellent!!
A lovely hotel although the rooms were rather warm but I will stay there again so thank you!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MaggieMaggieMay Bath for accessible room
We booked an accessible room because of my husband's disability & were given a room with an over bath shower! What use was that.
Also, I could not get the air conditioning to work. The room was cold so I turned it up to 20. It remained cold so I went to the front desk & asked for help. They sent a pleasant member of staff up. She said, "It doesn't appear to be working. The room is cold." She turned it up to 23 and said, "see how that goes". It made no difference. It was room 136.
Otherwise a nice stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robin_Hood_2014 Great staff, great atmosphere, great location.
We have stayed at the Crowne Plaza on many occasions and it is always our first choice when visiting our daughter and family.
The location overlooking the river is great. The staff are friendly, professional and efficient and they help to promote a relaxed atmosphere.
We will no doubt be seeing you soon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Troy60 Great Hotel in Good Location
Only stayed for one night with my wife after a business meeting in Reading.. We were travelling to London by train the following day so wanted to stay close to the station. This hotel was ideally placed for this being only a five minute walk away. The hotel was clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The location was also great for a quite stroll along the Thames. Breakfast was great and the only small issue I had was that the air conditioning in the room didn't seem to get the room very cool, but even so the temperature was ok - I just like sleeping in a cold room! Would certainly stay here again if I can get a good rate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rustbuster Excellent staff and reception
The hotel provided all you would expect from a Crowne Plaza in terms of facilities, but the professionalism of the staff made the difference.
The hotel benefits from its position on the banks of the river and splendid outlook.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bazza70 Slipping slightly
This is a good hotel in a convenient location. The bedroom s are getting slightly tired but still very useable.
It was a joy to have air conditioning in the room as it was so hot outside and the window appear not to open.
Breakfast was OK except for the bacon which was very hard (think shoe leather) had probably been standing a while on the hotplate.

the best part of the hotel is its location- backyard opens to river Thames which gives access to long pathway by the river and amazing scenic beauty.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Crookla Worst Corwne Plaza I've ever stayed in
Tired looking hotel, security of car park left me concerned as to whether my car would still be there when I left.
Food menu - weird!
Room Service - V V Poor quality food - how difficult is fish and chips exactly?
Lighting in room - in adequate
Mirrors - not well placed for hair make up
Air Con - not sufficient to cope with heat
Noisy - noise all night when windows open due to inadequate aircon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Madam Foibles Lovely place to stay
Nice room overlooking the river.
Only issues were broken air con and dining room at breakfast was a mess and had to wait 10 minutes for plates.
Reception staff were friendly and helpful.
It wasn't very clear, as a loyalty member, what facilities were available and I didn't get a sleep aromatherapy kit which was mentioned int he survey ;o/

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bobby rambler 26 A good hotel
On the whole a pleasant stay. 2 nights in club room. Expected a separate bath and shower (which I've found standard at other Crowne Plaza' at club level) but did not have one. No real issue though as I may just have been lucky at other properties. Are in both nights, good service and good menu choice.
Club room a little limited on drink options during the day but the evening arrangements more than made up for it.
Will stay again

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Good service
We were attending a graduation which meant 'dressing up' in the morning but then had a long journey home staff were helpful in arranging facilities to change long after our room was vacated. The gentleman running breakfast was very attentive despite having a fool room of young rowers all eating and leaving at the same time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by darktheywere Comfortable hotel on the river
Efficient comfortable stay where the location is excellent and breakfast by the river is very pleasant. The beds are high quality and the service is generally good.
A couple of issues need attention:
- reception staff and
- restaurant food.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Neil43 Good Hotel but service was poor this time
I stay at this hotel on a regular basis and the quality of rooms and standard of service is normally excellent. On this occasion the service was poor both at the check-in desk and also at the bar. The staff seemed both inexperienced and distracted, which was somewhat irritating.
I have no complaints about the bedrooms or bathrooms - very good standard. Also, the bar and restaurant are very pleasant to eat in with lovely views of the river. Menu is a little limited.

The exceptional friendliness and helpfulness of staff at the CP in Reading make this a standout. The hotel is quiet, and well located for travel, and finding great eateries in the country or the city. And a relaxing walk along the Thames is a few steps away.

I was delighted with the location of my chosen hotel as it was a 10 minute walk to the station. It offered free parking and Wi-Fi which I believe every hotel catering for business travellers should offer as standard.
The hotel staff were professional and welcoming.
Delighted the quality of mattress, pillows, linen and towels plus an aromatherapy kit to aid restful sleep. It appeared to work!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Scubagirl50 Convenient location, friendly service
Overall, this was a good hotel with friendly & efficient staff. It was a Saturday night so it would have been better to have a livelier bar area with music playing in the main atrium. There is a lovely patio area overlooking the river with picturesque views, however, this was abit of a neglected corner, with used crockery left on a table from earlier in the day. Maybe heaters, or candles in the evening would have improved the ambience.
The room was comfortable, however the pillows were low quality and lumpy which made for uncomfortable sleep. On the plus side, the room was very clean and had all the amenities expected of a 4* hotel.
For the price, breakfast should have been included, however there were lots of restaurants, pubs and cafés close by offering brunch.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BaltimoreDave Great Jump-off Location for Touring Oxfordshire
Everything is splendid about this hotel for a weekend. The indoor swimming pool is great for laps and the gym is superb compared to most hotels. Meals were excellent. You can walk right out the door and stroll for miles along the Thames, admiring the swans and sights. A 20-minute walk along the Thames brings you to the Reading rail station and easy access to many trains to the N, S, E or W. It is a quick ride to Oxford and many other towns in the region, since Reading is a rail hub. As Americans we wanted a quick access to rail links, and although farther from the rail station than a couple other hotels, its location on the Thames in a scenic area made up for the distance. We were surprised that they do not have a free on-call shuttle service, since the taxi on call is very expensive for a trip that is less than a mile.
