Good location & price, however desperately needs some renovation & money spent. The communal areas very very tired. The bathroom was thick with limescale. We had a family room, and although the king size bed was very comfy, the additional beds for the children were as hard as concrete - all members of the family nned to sleep well.

We stayed here with 2 adults and a baby. We said this when booking. When shown to our room there was no cot but two extra beds made up. Luckily we had our own travel boy with us. The room smelt awfully of damp. When I complained I was asked to wait whilst they checked another room. This took ages....

On our recent trip back to Reading we stayed in this Old Faithful Hotel, one we have used many times. Our previous trip to Reading we had an unexpected and not a great expectation!! In a Reading Hotel, however this Hotel is dependable, easy to find, clean and comfortable.

A standard Travelodge. Reasonable prices for a good nights sleep. No frills service. Friendly, helpful staff. Free parking. Would be better if the shower head could be moved. Not very good for tall people.
