Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TTRI Recent stay
I was travelling with a coach party and therefore did not book the hotel myself but as soon as I found out that we were staying at the Holiday Inn, I was overjoyed as I value the custom of the staff and prefer to stay at the Holiday Inn or Holiday Inn Express if I possibly can. The attitude of staff is wonderful and I am made to feel so welcome. In some properties, the staff recognise me immediately and go out of their way to make me welcome there. The rooms are comfortable, the bedding clean and the bathrooms are clean with necessary toiletries provided.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SleeplessInReading Room too hot, windows can't be opened & air con poor
On arrival reception tried to put an additional £50 on my credit card, I was not impressed!
We wanted wifi access, this was not available if one wasn't a member of some scheme.
Then there was no lift and my friend was left to struggle with heavy luggage up the stairs.she was not impressed!
Finally the room, it would have been adequate, but the air conditioning was very poor and the windows sealed. So we spent a sleepless night in a stifling hot room, even though the air temperature outside had dropped and it was nice and fresh outside.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ronnie 20 Excellent Service
The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. Ironing board, iron and trouser press were provided in each room, as was a hair dryer. The bed was very comfortable and the hotel was clean. The staff we came across, in the restaurant and at reception, we're very friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble and they were all cheerful. The en-suite was roomy, not always the case in other hotels I have stayed in, and it was good to have the choice of bath or shower. I would be happy to recommend this hotel.

Hotel could do with some money spendng on it, it feels rather dated.
Bathroom in the room was dirty, nowhere near the standard I'd expect at a hotel.
Staff friendly, checking in

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Red_Elise Peaceful nights sleep
I am an extremely light sleeper and struggle to get a good night sleep when staying away. However, I have stayed at Holiday in Reading West a number of times and always sleep well.
The room met the general needs but the bathroom would benefit from updating as it is starting to look tired.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by boobop13 great sleep, not so great food
the bed in this room is amazing, so comfy and being in a wheelchair the room is so spacious (if you move a few things round) The staff are amazing and will do anything you ask (within reason) but the breakfast isnt all its cracked up to be and i think next time ill go to McDonalds down the road rather than pay for the mediocre food here.

We only stayed one night but that was long enough to make this our new base for when we visit Reading.
Although the hotel is next to a busy road there was no road noise at all in the room. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, plenty of hot water and a good breakfast - all we needed for a one night stay! We will be back!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jimnn Very Pleasant Experience
Stopped over for a night, a handy location although a little out of the way. Ample parking. This is an older Holiday Inn, but still the service and presentation of the rooms was excellent. Very clean and tidy bedroom and en-suite. Reception staff efficient and the restaurant staff were particularly helpful. We wanted a light snack which despite our late arrival they got for us without any fuss. The Club Sandwich I had was freshly prepared and very tasty. Similarly breakfast was well organised. Will happily stay here again

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Latravia Convenient location and generally good value
Needed to be around the area for business and social matters and this was the most convenient hotel location being on the A4. The hotel is relatively new and well maintained. The staff were professional and helpful. The room was comfortable and a reasonable size with WiFi. I was able to get a room a week before arriving but found the rates quoted online varied greatly and the senior online rate was in fact higher than just calling the hotel. I definitely would stay again and recommend for business travellers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gibsori Great Service
I regularly stay at this hotel and always find the staff extremely helpful.
This week was no exception and after getting stranded late in the evening at a train station with no taxis and limited phone reception I phoned the hotel to see if they could help.
I spoke to Alena who was extremely helpful, she contacted a number of taxi firms arranged a taxi quickly and then phoned me back to confirm the details. Thank you very much for helping me!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BriSki838 5 stars to everything! Incredible staff!
I just recently stayed at this holiday inn for two weeks. The staff was so accomadating and welcoming. By the end of our two weeks it was like we were staying good bye to family. The food was always freshly prepared and delicious. The rooms were spacious and house keeping was great with keeping everything so clean.
The only bad thing was the location. We were without a car so we had to taxi or take a train (which is a short 5 minute walk from the hotel). The hotel staff was always booking our taxis and they arrived within 10 minutes.
Regardless to the location; I would highly reccomend this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ufarrochil Good staff, but the hotel needs an overhaul
I've stayed here many times now and it's always the same. The staff are good - friendly and attentive - and the hotel is always clean, but it's all getting a bit tatty through age and is in need of an overhaul (please - a power socket within 15 feet of the bed!).
The food is good although if you're solo then the bar is a more convivial place to sit than the restaurant.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Duwbi Restaurant Service was a joke
Both dinner and breakfast service was shocking
Main course for dinner took nearly 50 min to arrive on the table and there was only 8 other guest in the restaurant.
Breakfast ordered a poached egg nothing more and 25 min later nothing
I'm not one for moaning but you would expect a better service from the holiday inn

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Geoff and Pauline Good easily accessible and comfortable hotel
We enjoyed a two night stay at Holiday Inn Padworth. As one of us has walking difficulties a ground floor room just a short walk from reception was a bonus. The large flat car park very near the main door also helps. Excellent double glazing meant we didn.t hear traffic on the nearby A4. Overall a good and easily accessible hotel at a sensible price. We hope to return.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Foggon44 Staff went the extra mile
As a priority club member I asked and was given an upgrade.
As it was a bank holiday the local taxi firm was closed in the evening and we were given a lift by the receptionist to the local station. She even lent us her own Umbrella!!
I wish I could remember her name.
Service was fantastic and would definitely stay again.

Stayed here after after a family wedding. Did not check in until late after the reception, greeted by night porter and quickly checked into our spacious and comfortable room.
Started the day well with a comprehensive breakfast choice of which I took full advantage.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Richard152 Good service but room a bit tired
Nothing wrong with the bedroom but the bathroom was "tired" and in need of a refurb. Otherwise, a typical Holiday Inn but with a very friendly receptionist who seemed to be working all hours.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quequejet Convenient & comfortable
This hotel surpassed my expectations. It was a convenient place to stay after arriving at Heathrow and wanting two nights accommodation before heading further north. The restaurant (including breakfast) was excellent, staff exceedingly helpful, bed and pillows very comfortable. Highly recommended although probably only convenient for car travelers.
