Meh. Not a terrible place, but certainly the advertising on booking websites is not justified, nor is the price. This is not a hotel, it is a fairly low-grade B&B. Fine to a degree, except if you are paying hotel prices (this was no cheaper than other places to stay in Reading) you should receive hotel-standard service. The multi-purpose receptionist/cook/greeter...

On arriving there is a large car park next door to the hotel, the front door was locked and we had to ring the bell to call someone. A "receptionist" arrived quickly and we were soon booked in, the "receptionist" carried my wife's case up the stairs to our room ( a plus point) which was clean and warm as...

Bathroom window broken would not close meaning the room was freezing cold. No towels provided had to ask and received one hand towel between two people.

The biscuits were nice the tea not the best, so if staying for a while you might want your own. The hotel was quite and...

I was received by a guy wearing pijamas at 3PM; the room had no toillete (they advertise en suite luxury rooms!!!); terrible english! Although the employee was not rude, it seemed that he was there by accident. It was probably the worst hotel I had ever stayed in my life. Oh, and I don't think they change the sheets for...
