I stayed for the night as was in reading for my works Christmas party, the staff were great and the room very comfortable, checking in and out was very easy and the room and hotel was very clean, didn't go for breakfast, but got a drink from the bar and this was very good with good service.

I needed a reasonably priced place at short notice when we hosted some people from the US last summer. I stayed here and was grossly disappointed. The place is poorly kept, both in terms of maintenance and cleanliness. Grossly overpriced for product value it aims to serve.

Never, ever stay here. Just don't put yourself through it. The staff are unbelievably rude. The management lie routinely and become aggressive when challenged. These are basically rooms above an Indian restaurant (owned by the same people). And I love Indian food but I don't need to smell it in my room all day and all night. Ate with some...

I have stayed several occasions. I must be a sucker for punishment. Walls are too thin. Very noisy. Dodgy plumbing. Maids servicing rooms in the morning are very EARLY and noisy, shouting amongst themselves. This was very disruptive on every occasion. The internet....What internet. This is very intermittent. Don't bother trying to watch a bit of iPlayer or YouTube. It...

Good location right in the centre of Reading, this hotel was obviously made by knocking together several old buildings and adding extensions, so it is a bit of a maze, and no lift. We stayed her on New Years Eve. The evening dinner was hot and adequate amount although we thought we might have had crackers / party poppers /...

I feel the need to report this hotel, as it was the worst experience ( more a mightmare) a tourist want to avoid. I am a travel lover, & have traveled all over the world in the last 20 years. I seldom post review, but I feel obligated to warn the fellow tourists on this one. I initially booked for...

This hotel could be very nice however the the public areas and rooms could be refurbished and updated as it's a bit run down, and the food is average. The staff are helpful and friendly. Ok for a one night stay.

This place has a great central location, food is good and staff are really nice. The decor is outdated but for the price you get what you pay for so is expected but what really lets this place down is the internet connection. I visited on business and was unable to get much work done because the internet was unusable....

I checked in to this hotel with trepidation as there are mixed reviews, needless to say that for what I paid (£59.00 a night) I got what I paid for and was not disappointed. The service upon arrival and the speed of check in was good (there was five of us in separate rooms) and when I got to the...

Not on the same level/standard as some mainstream hotel chains but perfectly acceptable. In the centre of Reading it has the whole city on its doorstep, very nice shopping centre and cinema with river and a selection of eateries with inside and outside seating. The hotel has its own Indian Resturant called the Royal Tandoori and serves a really good...

“I suspect rooms overlooking Duke Street would be noisey”

“May not be a good hotel for young families as a lot of the rooms are on main roads in the centre of town so may be quite noisy.”
