Convenient place to stay and easy walking distance to town centre. Well set up apartment and absolutely spotlessly clean. Having a car park was a bonus. We found it a little noisy due to the traffic on the busy road but in cooler weather you wouldn't have to have windows open so it might not be a factor in a... More

I stayed at The Faculty on 2 separate occasions in December/January. I suppose it's taken me this long to get around to writing this review because I'm still getting over my stay. I'm astonished at the generally positive reviews of this accommodation. Did we stay in the same place? Where to begin? The shower - this is the tiniest shower... More

Pleasant accomodations in a central location of Reading. Walkable to many places. Had 2 kids in apartment and worked well and not too far from train station. Clean and appropriately appointed. Staff very kind and helpful. Only downside, there was no lift, and only 1 key. Would ask for a second key if available.

Everything was set out before we arrived. Was able to get into the apartment.located a walking distance to the oracle. Supermarkets are close by. The rooms are a very good size. a bit difficult to find the front entrance as the back is facing the major road. It was a bit difficult to log on to the wifi

The Faculty Apartments are indeed that: a home away from home.... I stayed there for a week with my husband and it was very convenient, much more preferable and better than a hotel. The flat was clean and we had the bedsheets and towels changed once. Very near to the city centre and close to the bus stop, we had... More

My current work contract requires me to work out of Reading and as I knew I'd be here for a minimum of a month I chose to go down the route of a Services Apartment over a hotel. There are quite a few to choose from in Reading and after several phone calls I plumped with the The Faculty Apartments.... More

Stayed for 4 nights, and Claudia could not have been more responsive. Upon reserving we were sent information and then just before we checked in we had all we needed in order to get into the apartment. The parking was VERY convenient--right in front of the apartment and only steps to get our gear into the place--which with a baby... More

“There is no elevator, so prefer a low floor room. It is on roadside, you may get a little noise of moving vehicles on the road. I got used to it in 3-4 days.”
