Hillingdon Prince Hotel
Clean, friendly staff, comfortable bed and good value.
Overcharged for Breakfast
Charged 18 pounds on-line for breakfast - cheaper if you pay at hotel.
Should be the other way round surely. Sausage I had was terrible
Base for a wedding
Staying briefly for a wedding, wqe didn't know the area.
As it turned out, Hillingdon Prince was a good place to stay (though selected as being the cheapest available). For us, the hotel was walking distance from the centre of Reading - we're pretty good walkers though. The buildings (five of them) weren't new, but there seems to be a rolling refurbishment programme, so for example we had twelve plug sockets in our room - an the TV was already hardwired. I'm not a gym user, but our godson who was also staying appreciated free access to the five impressive pieces of equipment in the one in the Kendrick Building. Car parking was adequate, but I think there could be a problem on really busy nights. Again, it was no problem for us, but there didn't seem to be a lift to the upper floors. Finally, if you're seriously obese, don't accept room 215 - the toilet is in a VERY tight corner, and might prove to be unusable. For us, though, this was a good stay at the best price available, and in a convenient location.
Hillingdon Prince Hotel
Small room, rubbish breakfast waited 30 mins to receive burnt sausage burnt egg burnt bacon.
Good value budget hotel
I have already been in touch with you about the mix up with our booking.
The room we were given was in another building away from the mian hotel building and was very basis, However it was clean and the shower was efficient. The cooked breakfast included in the price was well cooked. Its a pity the hotel does not provide decaffeinated coffe and also that they ran out of marmalade on the second day.
Avoid this hotel
I stayed at this hotel a few years ago - what a change for the worst.
My room was not in the hotel itself but in a separate building - 2 buildings along the road - an old building that has been converted. There was a grass driveway with no landscaping at all leading to a door with outside fittings hanging off the wall. On entry you got a damp smell. The inside has been renovated to a below average standard. Room cost £63 (no breakfast). The windows were filthy.......not a single picture on a wall...........the 'desk' was a piece of kitchen worktop.....I couldn't sit in the seat - it cut into your legs - this was a child's seat!!!. I hate long-life milk so I went back to reception to ask for fresh milk to be told I would have to pay extra for it - well - a new angle on customer service. Simply a very poor hotel!
Great helpful staff lovely hotel would definitely stay there again
Hillingdon prince review
Always nice to be back in my hometown from Brighton butt was very happy to take my partner to this hotel as I know how nice it is.was very easy to get there from the motorway and happened to be close to where I was working after 3 hours of driving it was a sight for sore eyes.
A splendid building in a country setting. I had to leave valuables in my car but felt very safe in their car park. Staff where friendly and got us into our room very quickly. Can't say enough about how happy we were. Our ground floor room was close to back door a d car. Sound of birdsong was the only sound coming through the window. Shower was nice and strong with plenty of hot water. We will be returning again in a few weeks and already looking forward to it. Thanks Hillingdon Prince.
Excellent Value for Money
The receptionist was very friendly and welcoming, which was nice after a 3 hour drive.
We were upgraded on arrival to a recently renovated building at the back of the hotel - our room was pristine, and equipped with a kitchenette and sparkling bathroom.
There is a large car park to the rear of the hotel, which was ideal. The hotel was roughly a 20 minute walk from the town centre, which was close enough to be convenient whilst also sparing us the usual Friday-night-city-centre noise.
We only paid £40 for our stay, which was unbelievable value considering the excellent quality of the room. We would definitely consider staying here again on a return trip to Reading!
