I stayed here on business in Feb 2012 mainly due to the location. On arrival, the hotel is not the most attractive and is in one of Readings less upmarket areas.
Reception was quick and efficient and I was shown to my room. The public areas in this hotel are tatty and I did start to think I had made a bad mistake but the room was really nice, newly decorated with a comfortable bed, flat screen TV and a good shower. The restaurant was closed for refurbishment so I had to go out to eat so I can't vouch for the dinner menu but breakfast was really good,hot and plentiful with friendly staff.
Overall, not bad but probably not worth what I paid for it so I would not return and I probably would not recommend it as I am sure there are better in the area for the price.
