Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great stay before my course meeting.
I hadn't stayed at a Holiday Inn before. I was attending a course using the conference rooms at The Holiday Inn.
I am used to cheaper options so to me the Holiday Inn is luxury. I was surprised with a complimentary bottle of wine upon arrival and a warm welcome. The room was easy to find and there were good facilities.
I'm going to say I was spoilt the first time I stayed here with hot chocolate, a chocolate bar and a bath robe which I didn't get the second time ( given that I had the wine also makes me greedy I know, oops).
The double room ( same price as a single so what the heck) was huge and I had a good night sleep. I'd say the bathroom was a bit pokey to get into with the door open. I'm pretty sure I had a bath cap and sewing kit last time. I'm being really picky but it's these little treasures that make it more special.
I made use of the pool which was lovely and warm and not too crowded. Worth arriving early and getting a chance to relax.
I liked the look of the bar menu for dinner but the cheapest meal was a hotdog at £9.99 which I thought was too much really even though there was a good choice that I liked the look of. So,I want to the fish and chip across the road otherwise there really isn't anything else nearby.
On the other hand paying the extra for breakfast was yummy and I had a lot of choice.
For the conference the facilities were also very good with plenty of refreshments and a good selection for lunch.
For the purpose of the conference I thought the facilities were excellent and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Being a motorway location I probably wouldn't come to the Reading one for a romantic getaway but I'd certainly visit another one elsewhere and recommend the hotel.

Although family room booked glasses and mugs and to kitties and tea and coffee only for two people. In spa towels were very old and thread bare. Not enough loungers and chairs next to the pool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JASB47 Great relaxing break...
Our first stay (family of four) at the hotel and we all agreed we would like to return again.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and spacious, although a little noise pollution from the neighbouring room. Breakfast was very good and well presented, again great service from the staff. Our children loved the pancake machine. On the second breakfast morning they ran out of bacon which I found a bit surprising, however, one of the staff members went out to a local store and bought some which I thought was very nice touch so I got my bacon in the end!!
Another good aspect of the hotel is they take the Tastecard which gave us 50% of our food bill when we ate in the restaurant. The food was very good, I had a medium rare rump steak which was cooked to perfection my wife had a very nice burger, my eldest son had a steak which he enjoyed. My youngest had cottage pie from the children's menu. It was a bit dry with not much meat sauce. Again service was great led by Antonio.
