With the city center and train station within walking distance, as well as
close access to London Heathrow Airport and the Thames Valley business
parks, our Reading hotels are sure to meet your needs, no matter what your
reason for heading our way. Nestled in England’s scenic Thames Valley at the juncture of two rivers,
Reading is a lively town with close proximity to Oxford and London. A
flourishing hamlet from medieval times on, the town saw increased growth
after the advent of the Great Western Railway and the founding of the
prestigious University of Reading in 1892. Reading’s town center is dominated by the picturesque ruins of Reading
Abbey, a monastery founded by Henry I that thrived throughout the medieval
era. Existing side-by-side with its charming town hall and city center is a
more modern reputation for arts festivals. Music fans flock to the Reading
Music Festival every year, and the town also plays host to a very popular –
and hoppy – beer festival. The shopping in Reading is nothing to sniff at, either, so come prepared to
experience one of the U.K.’s top retail destinations. With quirky little
shops to suit all tastes and large, attractive shopping centers such as The
Oracle and Broad Street Mall at your disposal, the perfect souvenir is just
around the corner. Blow off some steam at a Reading Football Club match – the local soccer
team is sure to bring out enthusiastic crowds. As a major hub for the British train system, Reading Station has connections to many other British cities, including London’s Paddington and Waterloo
stations. Find your way to one of our Reading hotels, and you’ll see why we have a
reputation for fantastic service and top-notch convenience. Our wide range
of budget-friendly options means that you can enjoy all the amenities you
expect, at a price you can afford.

Easy access from the motorway
Easy to find and plenty of parking. The hotel is nice and quiet and the leisure services looked good, although we didn't have time to use them.

Stayed here on a visit to Royal Ascot. Hotel is 2 minutes from the station so an excellent location. The hotel rooms are fine and the lounge comfortable.
