Right smack bang in the centre of Reading. I couldn’t find any car parking facilities, however there is a multi-storey connected which will cost around £15 for 24 hours. From the outside the hotel could do with some revamping, it looks dated and not exceptionally appealing. It is a pleasant surprise once you enter as the interior is of modern sophisticated design. Rooms are modern but could do with one or two added touches. There isn’t any hot drink facilities along with not having a mirror on the dressing table. The only mirrors are either in the bathroom or on the bathroom door. Large beds which are very comfortable. The lift takes forever to arrive which is a pain as I could find any stairs to go down. One thing that was a negative was the payment of the room. I wanted to pay cash and found that I couldn’t do so without leaving a £50 deposit at reception, even though they had my card details from when I reserved it online. The receptionist told me it was their policy to reserve the money for the room on check-in via a credit or debit card, which means that if you want to pay cash be prepared to leave the deposit, easier to pay on card really. All in all I will definitely visit again.
