This is a nice clean hotel located outside of Central Reading in a residential neighborhood. There is nothing outstanding about it, average rooms, average food, average service. Not being in the center of the city, I was shocked by the high cost of parking and felt like I had been taken when paying sixty pounds for internet service which was very slow and overall problematic (and I am in the IT business).
I visited the bar three times for food service and each time the service was poor. On my last visit for lunch, I had to repeatedly find my server. The food was average hotel food that you can tire of very quickly.
But like I said, it is a newer clean hotel. I will stay here again in the future, but my expectations will be set.
If you have no car, a bus to Central Reading stops very close by.
