Arrived at check in wondering if it was a bar. Very low light and mirror ball lights. Obviously intentional. My room was nice. Tried to be funky with orange and bright decoration. The room was perfectly fine, had all I needed for a one night business stay. Quiet and very comfortable Even had free movies to watch. Didn't have any...

I appreciated people and food. People at Reception were very welcoming and efficient. At the restaurant for diner & breakfast people were welcoming and food was good. Room was perfectly cleaned and the design is modern/cozy. Buildings location is perfect, close to station and motorwy. Shopping Streets very close to the Hotel.

Perfect sized rooms, clean, great bar, (didn't eat in restaurant but would be tempted if I returned again) there is parking really close by but not within the hotel grounds. Staff were exceptionally helpful. The music went on til gone 1:30 in the lobby and as we were on the first floor this did keep me awake longer but would...

Usually we stay at Ibis or Novotel, but this time Penta provided better price on conditions for March business trip to Reading. Hotel is located little bit off the main streets in Reading, but still quite achievable by walking (10mins from station) Nice hip, trendy decor and very spaicous room. My room's bed was really good and large. Everything worked,...

The staff at this hotel are always very friendly, the rooms are spacious and the beds are huge. Great location in the city centre. Would highly recommend staying here. Only downsides were the power of the showers and strength of the air con.

Very good facilities in pleasant hotel, marred by being adjacent to an extremely noisy road. Rooms overlooking the dual carriageway need triple glazing, with at least 25mm of air between the layers of glass. They also need better curtains for keeping out light pollution. Otherwise, this hotel is very good.

What I liked: The cozy reception , Management folks/staff - cooperative and friendly. Quicker laundry services, Decent food and drinks - the breakfast selection is quite impressive (some exception during weekends and Mondays...unless there are enough guests staying in the hotel) Location - A great plus! Proximity to Reading (GWR) train station,broad street etc. What I did not like -...

good bedroom, staff fine, reception area a bit too dim, decent gym. Mix up on room service but worked out ok as the staff responded. Bar staff on only occasion I went were really slow and v disappointed that clear favouritism shown to someone they knew at the expense of other customers who had waited longer
