“A pleasure to stay”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Very good value for money, and very friendly and helpful staff. One of the best hotels I have stayed in. Although it is situated on the A4 between Newbury and Reading the sound insulation is so good I could hardly hear the traffic in my room on the road side of the hotel. The hotel is very convenient for the M4, making it easy to reach London or Bristol Airports. Good pizza too! I will be back ...

I had a few sat nav problems finding the place, I used the published post code but that took me miles away ( tip do not enter a house number in sat nav) the hotel is actually 8 miles outside of Reading, west along the A4.

On arrival the receptionist was efficient very helpful with directions and a map to the venue of an event that we were attending that evening. Be warned there is no lift to the first floor so if you are bringing heavy bags then request a ground floor room.

The rooms were of the usual standard for a Holiday Inn and very clean and tidy, but a little tired in a few places. I had a view looking out at a row of trees between the hotel and the main road, but I never heard any traffic noise at all.

I did not use the bar or restaurant facilities during my brief stay, but a colleague highly recommended the full English breakfast that she had.

All things considered I would definitely return to this hotel again and would recommend it highly.

Room Tip: No lift to upper floor so request a ground floor room if you have mobility problems or heavy luggage...

We stayed here last week, I found the reception staff to be friendly. They moved our room to a ground floor room from a first floor one when they noticed I was travelling with an infant. The barman was very good, he provided us with a game and some colouring things to keep our little one happy. The hotel is mainly geared up for business travellers but they were very accommodating to us as a family too. There is a nice enclosed garden our little boy ran around in which was great as it's away from the road. We would stay again.

Room Tip: Request ground floor rooms if disabled or travelling with children as there are no lifts.

Stayed the night after a day at legoland. As usual it was quick and easy to check in and the room was clean and tidy. We had the Gammon ham and egg & lasagne both were really nice. Breakfast the next day was outstanding !!

Stopped over for a night, a handy location although a little out of the way. Ample parking. This is an older Holiday Inn, but still the service and presentation of the rooms was excellent. Very clean and tidy bedroom and en-suite. Reception staff efficient and the restaurant staff were particularly helpful. We wanted a light snack which despite our late arrival they got for us without any fuss. The Club Sandwich I had was freshly prepared and very tasty. Similarly breakfast was well organised. Will happily stay here again

I was a bit annoyed when I found that the Basingstoke Holiday Inn and,indeed, most Basingstoke hotels were fully booked over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend (my own fault for leaving it to the last minute) but, as it turned out, this worked out very well as we booked into the Reading West Holiday Inn instead. I can't put my finger on why but this hotel had a very homely feel, it just felt right. The staff were very welcoming and the breakfast was very good. This hotel is only a short drive from Basingstoke so, in the end, it worked out very conveniently.
Another review noted that the hotel was in need of refurbishment; that appears to be under way. I have stayed in better appointed hotels but I have seldom felt so comfortable.

Room Tip: The hotel is on the A4 which can get very busy. Our room face the main road but we weren't bothe...
