You can't fault this hotel's position, slap bang on the River Thames and within easy distance of the town centre. My room had a balcony overlooking the river but as nice as the view was the balcony itself was looking a little tired and was not as pleasant a place to relax as it could have been. I don't know what it was but despite it being difficult to fault anything, the hotel never really caught my imagination. It was all borderline fine but characterless and slightly downmarket, feeling more Holiday Inn than Crowne Plaza. Maybe I was just tired but I will be looking for somewhere more interesting and upmarket for my future stays in Reading.
