“Nice, new and clean”
Reviewed 10 January 2014 via mobile

Nice, quite new and very clean hotel. Rooms are very well illuminated, clean and quiet. The bad thing is the location that is far from the city center and the train station. Also it took me more than 20 min to get a taxi. A shuttle service between the hotel and the station would be great.

With the Hilton weekend offer, we had a great deal to stay at this hotel for 3 nights. The hotel was very clean and modern, with underground car park which was free to use.
I had booked our stay through Lastminute.com and there was a little glitch at the start - but all was sorted out in a professional manner. Even gave us a couple of free complimentary drinks for the inconvenience!
The location is close to the motorway, but a little far away from the town centre. There are not a lot nearby the hotel, and though it's right next to the main road it seemed very quiet in our room. The Bar K served a very nice meal too, highly recommended if feeling lazy!
Complimentary gym use was nice touch too, with decent equipment.
One thing I would advice is don't touch anything in the minibar - I had a bill through the door on the departure day for a champagne just because I took the bottle to have a look when we arrived! They were understanding and this was wavered however.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone :)

We only had one night here and it was very impressive. A lovely deluxe room with a separate sitting area made our stay comfy. The bar was great with a nice atmosphere and the restaurant was packed. Above all though it was the staff that made thw difference. The reception staff were uniformly outstanding.

The spa break at the Hilton Reading was amazing. The hotel was very clean and the staff were very helpful. I enjoyed the massage which was included and the food was very good. The only comment I have is that it was not stated anywhere that the meal was only two course and that you have to pay for the third. Other than that it was absolutely brilliant.

My wife and I had a very good stay. The offer was excellent value. We were disappointed there was no spa bath to relax in. The spa treatment was very good and the staff very professional. The hotel staff were very good and helpful. The evening restaurant supervisor was very helpful. We did have to wait a time between courses. The food was good especially for the money we paid. The hotel was pleasant and is quite new. The position is not brilliant but as a base or for a spa weekend this does not matter. We would not hesitate to stay here again if there was another offer which interested us.

I bought this deal as christmas presents and was worried it wouldn't include everything as was such good value for money but everything was delivered as advertised. The food at the hotel was of an excellent standard. Very impressed.

Good business hotel thanks to its location. Nice room design. The best thing is the quality of the bed. Although the breakfast could use some improvement, it's a rather small choice for a Hilton business hotel.
