This was a Diamond reward stay, and we choose it for minimal point impact, and to avoid the expense of London for several nights, whilst doing the Cotswold's and Stonehenge. We were pleasantly surprised by the modern, spacious room, quality furnishings, nicely appointed bath, easy free parking, and hands down- the best breakfast we have enjoyed anywhere- for three mornings!
I also highly recommend this easy-to-get-to place as ideal for an American coming from Heathrow Airport and relearning to drive on the left.
We were unpleasantly surprised by a wee-hour false fire alarm our first night- but these kind of things happen and it just happens to remind us of an otherwise extremely uneventful and good stay.
When we return to this corner of the world, the Hilton Reading with be our stay of choice. Since we messed up timing on visiting Downton Abbey, we likely will be back soon!
