“Great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2012

Stayed for a weekend in the Novotel Reading Centre. The hotel is walking distance both to the train station and the main shopping street/shopping centre. The room was spacious and very clean, the bed was very firm which was great!
My only negative comment is that there was no free wifi/internet access in the room which is unbelievable in the 21st century.

Thank you very much for taking the time to give us this very good feedback. We are very happy to read that you enjoyed your weekend in Reading.
As regards internet, there is indeed still a charge at the moment as we have upgraded our system to get very high performance one, which is coming at a significant cost. I hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you again soon at Novotel Reading.

Kind Regards,

Antoine de Corson
General Manager

This hotel delivers what you would expect.
Good rooms, large, very clean.
The breakfast was very good also very fresh and good selection
Location is faultless just 3 mins from the train station.
I'd stay again
