Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dillydollop Enjoyed the one night stay
We had a good experience. Greeted very nicely and very helpful. Just one gripe was that the lady in the bar area could have been more accommodating, as when we were shown to a dining table near the window my wife requested a move to what just happened to be a larger table away from the draught. The lady appeared put out just to make a minor adjustment so we went to a small table in the bar area. A 30 second job seemed to be just too much even though there was hardly any other customers there.

Brief stay but welcoming staff (and a warm welcome from the fire in the foyer!). A well equipped room, well presented (everything in good condition, clean and tidy).

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by travller999 Outdated a over priced
Rooms look very tired, paint was peeling in the bathroom, location quite a long way out of Reading, overpriced compared to budget hotels that offer a better room for less money.
Internet charges are extortionate, you can get a months internet for the price they charge for 24 hours!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jez118 Great but I feel cheated
I booked a room with a queen bed, Now my understanding of a queen bed is one that a queen mattress is used. What I discovered as soon as I checked in was that the queen bed was actually 2 beds pushed together. I leke to sleep in the middle of the bed and with the 2 mattresses meeting in the middle this wasn't possible.
I think I could have saved money by booking a twin room and pushing the beds together and still not compromise on the "quality" of their "queen" bed.
I am sad to say that while I would recommend the Holiday Inn Reading West, I would not recommend the queen beds.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AndyHAT two day stay
Rolled up on Friday afternoon in the rain. Staff were immediately friendly and helped me get checked in swiftly!
Trading a few jokes and smiles I was made very welcome.
The room itself was excellent quality, comfortable bed. Lovely bathroom & excellent shower!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by IC37 Looking a little tired
Staff were really friendly and helpful.
The rates were good.
The hotel is very tired looking and really needs to have a good refurb, especially in bathrooms.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bigspybossovich Very friendly and helpful receptionist
First impressions matter, and the charm and helpfulness of the receptionist on duty when I arrived was very welcome, after experiencing very different service elsewhere. No hassles with anything, and a good stopover. Only issue: guests without a car get stung by outrageous taxi fares in this part of Berkshire. There is no local competition, so I had to get a taxi firm from Reading - charged £25 to travel six miles ....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gbells Comfortable accomodation
A very pleasant hotel in quiet surroundings. Close to M4 with Oxford about 45 minutes away and Blenheim Palace reachable in about 1 hour. Also reasonably close to Reading which has regular train services to London. Would strongly recommend this hotel for weekday and or weekend breaks.
