We are all driven to book on line these days which is understandable, however, what happens when it goes wrong and you can't get on line ? If the Premier Inn Reading Central is your hotel of choice you may well end up sleeping on the nearby railway platform. I spend a lot of money on staff with the premier...

Lovely clean room, lovely and quiet, great nights sleep! The room was well sound insulated, bed extremely comfortable, and the check in process was fairly straightforward. Asked for an extra towel, no problem!

I often stay in Reading when I go to watch England at Twickenham. I find this more convenient and a lot less stressful than travelling into London. The Premier Inn is ideally situated close to railway station, shops and restaurants. A good night's sleep and a nice breakfast in the morning.

Never have issues with Premier Inn and once again they did not let me down. Fantastic value, great location and as ever a great nights sleep. I would recommend them everytime, as the staff and service is always great.

I stay here on most occasions when i visit reading which is usually three to four times a year. Rooms are a nice size and always clean and well kept. Close to the town centre and close to the Oricale shopping centre. A handy place to get on the motorway from.

Good position, friendly staff, clean room, comfy bed, all for a reasonable price. Also by a busy road but couldn't hear traffic. Can't comment on the food as we did not eat at the hotel. This is our second stay here and we will definitely stay again.

Stayed for one night with my husband to go to his works anual party. I booked 2 months in advance and got a very good deal. The room was clean and comfortable with all we needed for the short time we were there. The only problem was that the room was too hot and I woke early and couldn't open...

Helpful staff as always, room extremely clean, everything satisfactory and enjoyable, buffet breakfast is well worth the extra money! newly refurbished rooms are very well designed, new, bigger TVs make all the difference compared to the older smaller ones. Premier Inn are becoming an up market hotel but with cheaper prices (if you book far enough in advance!) I did...

I have stayed in many Premier Inns and found them exceptionally clean and comfortable, all have been designed to the same specification so you know what to expect. However, this particular Premier Inn was quite a disappointment in comparison to others. The room was tired and not particularly clean and the sheets smelt of what I can only describe of...
