Would be so much better to have some local flavour - what better way to do this than have proper English beer, not from bottles or[More]
My 3rd visit to this hotel and as ever my stay exceeded expectations.
The staff were delightful, attentive and friendly.
On this occasion i availed myself of the leisure club facility and was[More]
suitably impressed, lovely swimming pool, clean immaculate throughout well done.
My room with balcony overlooking the river was wonderful.The in room nespresso coffee machine an inspired addition for a coffee addict like me, just a shame there are only 2 pods supplied.
The bed superbly comfortable and i slept soundly.
The bathroom was immaculate and the shower a joy.
The club lounge is a haven of luxury and i always enjoy my time in there
One minor niggle however was my dining experience in the club lounge, the food was presented in what can only be described as a giant soup bowl, it might be trendy but can someone make the chef sit down and eat his meal from it , he may then have a change of opinion. [Less]
This hotel is fine - to progress to being more than fine it needs serious money spending on it as frankly it's beginning to show its age. However I'm being a tad harsh - it is clean,[More]
reasonably freshly painted and the front desk staff cheerful, sympathetic and helpful.
My relatively low value rating is because there is little competition in the area, much demand and prices are generally high. My company gets better corporate rates in London than Reading...
So the three B's
Bed - comfortable, fresh linen that is clearly relatively new. Good nights sleep
Bath - I had a ground floor room and although my morning shower was fine it is in this area that the hotel is showing its age with really quite dated fittings and very little space to move around in. Towels though were good with some depth - an area I often see hotels cutting corners
Breakfast - again the full English on offer was fine, I ordered porridge and it arrived quickly and with a smile
Overall: yes I will return to this hotel [Less]
