“Well placed and quality 4 star hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2011

Just stayed here for one night after Reading Festival. Special £60 rate for a twin room including breakfast and reduced tariff on parking at the Q Car Park across the road. Very good room. Highly recommend.

Well I wasn't expecting this..it's years since I stayed in Reading and we checked in here befor our flight from Heathrow tomorrow...sorry London forget those high priced hotels...this is the perfect place to stay...I can't believe I am even writing a review...the room is funky and the two girls love it...the movies are free...the plug (american adapter) was free the room service was fantastic and reasonable after we had ventured out to ASK which was not so good!! I can't believe it ...it's truly awesome why would you go and stay in London??? Well done to the staff and management at the Penta Hotel I wish you had been here years ago when I worked for YELL, 10 out of 10 well maybe we will take .1% off for the room being a bit too warm...otherwise can't wait to come back maybe shopping at Christmas...

Just ask for a quiet room. Everything else is fine.

I was pleaseanly surprised by the ambiance when I stayed here. It's very hip, relaxed and chilled out. Staff were friendly and welcoming. The room was decorated stylishly in a fusion of prints and had a powerful shower, fab toiletries, and super comfy. It's in a central location within walking distance from the train station and close to the shops.

I booked this last minute for the night before a business meeting.

On arrival the guy who met me at reception was the most friendly, helpful, confident, cheery, polite employee I think I've ever met. 10/10. He directed me to parking and provided a perfect mix of professional and friendly service on check in.

The room was spendid, the bathroom was spotlessly clean (with a fantastic shower) and the options for connectivity were amazing.

This is about the 900th hotel night I've had in the last decade and I would easily rate the overall experience as the best.

Well done team! Thanks.

All I've got to do now is find another reason to visit Reading!

Room Tip: Check the aircon is off or set right. My default setting was very cold.

My wife and I stayed for a Saturday night on an amazing discounted bed and breakfast rate. The room was a standard double on the side overlooking and sadly overhearing the road below. Even with double glazing the noise was very noticeable. None-the-less we slept well in the humongous king size bed. The air conditioning kept the room cool and fresh. The rain shower is an amazing experience, combined with the luxury toiletries make it a great experience. We had brunch next morning which is a very generous self service of cold cuts, hot bacon, sausages egg etc. The new coffee machine makes a very intense and tasty coffee. Sadly watching the staff working in the breakfast room was disappointing. Tables were not cleaned well, the hot water for tea ran out, and the coffee machine ran out of beans. It still gets 5 stars in my opinion though - especially at the weekend rates.
