Smelly and dirty place, nice ppl working there but walls and carpet stained and old. People smoking in the rooms all possible stuff, paper thin walls, it was noisy till 2am, could hear TV, laughing, sex and loud snorring. Very firm bed, sheets were old but clean, nice breakfast in a dirty place. Couldn't sleep but good price .

This was the chepest hotel in Reading. Nice breakfast with very limited options. Reading being the very costly town we got this hotel with 30 bucks a day as we were 11 . Good for people who came to reading for work and want a place to sleep and have breakfast. Nice surroundings with a big gardon and beautiful place...

This is well-known hotel by contractors working or visiting the area, looking for somewhere cheap that serves an early breakfast at 6-00am, an evening meal and a few beers. The décor remains as it was in 1975 and so does the menu. You guess this when you walk through the door. It may be aging but it is not dirty....

This place is just awful, the bed made more noise than a brass band, the room was filthy, the toilet looked like it had never been clean and I was too afraid to have a shower. How this place is still in business is really beyond me.

this was booked for some friends to stay while they were visiting us. The hotel has good off road parking and more importantly a bar! when I went in to enquire about a room, the manager was very helpful and accommodating. The rooms are a bit grubby in need of a lick of paint as well as a good clean,...

When I pulled up on the car park I wasn't impressed with the look of the outside of the building, but you can't judge a book by its cover so I went in to see my room. The receptionist gave me my room key and directed me to my room, it soon went down hill from there. When I opened...

Arrived on a rainy Tuesday evening about 8.30 pm. As soon as I entered the building I knew I had made a mistake. Was shown to my room on the top floor which had no light bulb in. Man went to get light bulb (but would have been better to stay in the dark). When he returned, I told him...

Stayed here over the weekend of reading festival. The room was a good size but could have done with a lick of paint and friendly touch. It was very dirty and scummy but it was a last minute budget hotel. The staff were ok to talk to but food was not served over the weekend due to lack of staff...

The accommodation is dirty and smelly. If you like to physically see dirt and grime everywhere in the room then this is the hotel for you. I was lucky enough to only be booked in for 3 nights and managed to work long hours on site so didn't have to spend much time in the hovel. However after a long...
