Hilton provincial hotels can he hit and miss, but this Reading hotel is relatively modern and very pleasant.
The rooms are big and airy (I have only stayed in a deluxe room), have very effective and controllable heading, with a good shower. The internet connection was relatively fast, at least 1 Mbps and generally running at 3-8 Mbps.
The bar is always busy with plenty of chatter which is a nice change from the dead bars you sometimes get at hotels and the food in the restaurant has always been varied and really tasty in my experience.
However, the location requires a taxi to get to most places and so I haven't given 5 stars on that basis. However, it does have a pedal cycle shed if you want to cycle into town (I might do that come the Summer!).
