Cannot really argue for the price.
Floor creak all the way leading up to the room.
Breakfast was decent but they appeared to be understaffed that morning. Only 1 waiter running about
Great place to stay!
I stayed here earlier in July for a long weekend with my cousin and her four year old.
The overall stay exceeded my expectations!!. My first impressions were of an impeccably clean freshly painted surroundings, very tastefully and quaintly furnished (with recent upkeep) with Charles Dickens furniture and artefacts. First of all the staff were so accommodating that they went out of their way to provide every comfort by way of providing a trolley bed on learning of my cousins 4 yr old they were quick to see a lower trolley bed was more appropriate than a single one for her and had it set up promptly. Breakfast was a variety of cereals, orange juice, tea/coffee and a delicious cooked breakfast made personally to the individuals taste. I had read reviews of noise but heard no noise!. This hotel was also conveniently situated 8-10 mins walk from train station and 5 mins walk from the oracle and the centre of Readings wonderful shopping mall. I could not fault it!!!
