Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NafTaff13 quiet depsite its size
First impressions after you've booked in and are making your way to your room is that this is a big and slightly ugly hotel with long long corridors - for this reason you expect the hotel to be noisy. But despite it being full when I stopped it was quiet and thus provided me with a good night sleep. Breakfast was good and staff friendly.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not another night away Hotel felt tired
I stayed one night here. The staff are all very friendly and attentive but I fear some of the facilities in the hotel weren't up to much. When I arrived at my bedroom I sat down on the settee and practically fell through it. There were cobwebs all over the ceiling, the bed linen was ripped, the bathroom was tiny and the shower had no water pressure and I couldn't get any Wi-Fi in the hotel unless I was prepared to pay for it! (although I had the codes for the free Wi-Fi as a reward club member).
The health club is very small and the equipment could do with updating and cleaning, not sure why they need security locks on the doors to the changing rooms, you need to get a member of staff to unlock them every time you want to get in there. To be honest I would go for a purple/white hotel next time.
That aside, the conference facilities were very good, no complaints there.

Hotel and room clean and looked like new staff could not be faulted at all especially the breakfast team.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Steve1981 Poor experience wouldn't re-stay
Being a platinum member I get plenty of opportunities to compare hotels. This was a very poor experience, I ordered fish and chips and the peas were cold, I had to ask for the bread which should have come with the meal and by the time it arrived my meal was finished. The room air conditioning was stuck on cool so the room was freezing! My TV kept going off and then back on as though the cable was loose however I checked and all seemed fine. Work to do to get this holiday inn up to scratch.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by khs51 Very Noisy
I probably booked the wrong hotel. Because of the close proximity to the airport the type of clientele it attracts are holiday makers on a stopover from the airport, noisy and with boisterous children that they have absolutely no control over. These children (and some adults) spent half the night roaming the hallways shouting at each other and stopping everyone from sleeping. No lifts, which made it difficult to negotiate three heavy suitcases to and from the rooms up staircases, especially as some of the hallway doors only open in one direction (pull). Children's food was awful; bland, dry, cold, unimaginative and a dessert with an eyelash hair on it. Breakfast time was absolutely awful, hundreds of people shouting at each other and the same unruly kids running wild. I will book a different Holiday Inn next time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Prague23 Friendly, Welcoming and Relaxed
The Holiday Inn in Reading South has friendly and efficient staff and provides a comfortable base for visiting the Reading and Berkshire area.
The rooms are of good size and are clean and comfortable.
I stay regularly and always find that I sleep well.
The restaurant has good quality of food and the breakfast is excellent.
I commend a number of staff members including Anna (who looked after our room very well), Ilana (I think), Dave (the breakfast chef - great poached eggs and bacon) and Antonio.
