Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by PeteD Excellent staff and great location
This is a great hotel stop in the Reading area. The location on the river is relaxing, and provides easy access to trails for walking or jogging along the river. The hotel itself is serviced very well, and has a nice relaxed feel. However, for me the stand-out feature was the excellent staff - efficient, friendly and helpful in every way.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by Chas55 Very friendly atmosphere
A very comfortable stay. The room was clean and very well appointed. Although our room looked out onto a very busy roundabout there was next to no road noise and it certainly didn't disturb us. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. We will definately be staying here again.
PS. The shower was the best I have ever experienced in a hotel.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by Trelawny An enjoyable stay
We were pleased with our two-day stay at the hotel. The welcome by the reception staff was good as was the subsequent contact with other staff in the hotel.
The room was clean and comfortable and, although located at the side of the hotel facing the road, the traffic noise was not audible. The breakfast choice was excellent and, although we enjoyed dinner on both nights, the selection was somewhat unadventurous. Notwithstanding that, the food was of a good standard.
The only slight drawback was that, as one of our nights was a Saturday, there was the inevitable wedding reception. Whilst this was not a particular problem there were several children rampaging through the dining room during dinner which somewhat detracted from the overall experience.
Overall, a delightful spot to stay, alongside the flowing waters of the mighty Thames.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by KazP Short but sweet stay!
Myself and my partner only stayed at Crowne Plaza Reading for one night, but it was a very enjoyable stay all the same.
We were spending the evening at a party just over the road at Caversham Bridge, and the hotel was originally chosen for its perfect location.Just a two minute walk back to the hotel at the end of the evening was ideal!!
The room was extremely clean, and the King size bed was huge and very comfortable.The only disappointment for me was that the pillows were a bit thin, and even two weren't enough for me. Perhaps having a choice of pillows with different firmness would be a good idea.
The breakfast the next morning was an excellent experience.It was a beautiful sunny day and we sat where we could watch the swans on the river.
We were immediately asked what hot drinks we would like, and they came straight away. The buffet breakfast had a vast choice including cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts and cooked items such as bacon, sausages, hash browns, fried and scrambled eggs, mushrooms, beans and endless toast!!
The dining area was light and airy, and the tables had plenty of space between them, so you had plenty of privacy. Staff were in attendance, but weren't at all overbearing, and we didn't feel rushed at all. We had a very pleasant and relaxing breakfast.
All in all, a perfect stay.....short and sweet!! Thank you.

by Fotojim Always a nice and sweet stay
I really like this place. It is very well located and you can have a great walk down the river. Anytime I have a business in Reading I will definitely book and stay at this wonderful hotel.
Because I am also a photographer, there is a beautiful opportunity to grab great shots.
Enjoy my 2 included photos!

Really lovely setting right on the river. Very clean and comfortable room. Very good choice at breakfast and all staff happy and pleasant to deal with.
Only criticism was the loud disco music which could be heard in our room on the 2nd floor. We were staying overnight because our neighbours at home were having a loud party which we wanted to escape!
Other than that very happy with our stay and would certainly return.

We really like Crowne Plaza hotels, and our first stay at Caversham lived up to expectations. Delicious breakfast and friendly, competent staff. We will stay again.
