Stayed at the Hilton, Reading after company Christmas ball.
-Reception staff were very helpful with all check in inquiries.
-All staff very friendly and chatty
-The room was nice and large and immaculately clean!
-Pleased at having the opportunity to use the pool/ spa facilities and took full advantage of these before our evenings entertainment.
-The ball was in the Windsor suite which is a fantastic function venue, large with its own bar. -The soup starter served was nice but the main course (Christmas dinner) and Christmas pudding desert weren't particularly great.
-Comfy beds, the mattresses really are very good!
-Breakfast was a good variety, cooked breakfast, cereal, fruit, continental and some proper jam! (A selection of flavours in small jars, not cheap, nasty stuff served in plastic.)
-No nice views out of window but not particularly bothered
Our plan for the next day was to go home late that night after we had spent the day in Reading. However after such a good visit, using the facilities and being made to feel very welcome by all staff we decided to book another night. The first night we stayed on the second floor and for the second night we were moved to the first floor.
Our second nights experience mirrored the first up until we tried to go to sleep. From 9/10 o'clock onwards, music from the functions downstairs was blaring so loud we couldn't sleep until it had finished! (1:00 am!!) We hadn't noticed this the previous night being on the second floor and weren't very impressed.
The staff at reception the next morning did offer to cancel the tray charge that was associated with ordering food to the room. (Another tip food is expensive, and hotel is not near centre of town and any restaurants)
Overall would definitely stay here again but would request a room above the first floor.
