Holiday Inn Reading - South M4, Jct.11
Ranked #14 of 31 Hotels in Reading
Reviewed 9 March 2014

I decided to stay here due to it's location to Reading and the M4.

As an IHG member the check in was swift and the staff were happy to assist.

I only booked a standard room, however the room came with a king bed which was a good surprise.

I had breakfast and dinner both nights in the hotel restaurant - Breakfast for me was a full English both days - however there was a good selection of savories.

The only improvement in my opinion could have been the bathroom - It looked like the bath had been in a while and had paint chippings. Also when the shower was on the tiled floor pretty much flooded as the shower curtain didn't stop the water.

For the hotel, this was room 156.

All in all - I will return if I'm in Reading again.

I stayed here in January 2014 with my family and our whole stay was wonderful! The staff were ever so friendly and nothing was ever any trouble for them. Our evening meal was lovely and with there being 10 of us, everything ran smoothly which meant we could all relax and enjoy our evening. The breakfast in the morning was lovely too and had a wonderful, warm atmosphere. Thanks to all at the Holiday Inn Reading for making my birthday weekend so enjoyable!

Booked here for a business week at the Oracle University. Mistake. Should have booked at Hol Inn J10. (Not hotels fault). From here into Reading, the traffic is quite bad. Took 50 minutes to do 3 miles through the centre at 8:30.
As far as location is concerned, great if Reading are playing at home (if interested), if not, just enough out of the way to not inconvienience you. Thoughts on the hotel itself, Room – no problems, clean and comfortable. WIFI worked fine. TV channels a bit limited though. Leisure facilities, nice gym, pool and Jacuzzi. Saunas are found in the changing rooms and therefore are not mixed. Food. Similar price to other comparable hotels but not an extensive menu. It does have a Pub themed annex next door and similar high priced hotel food is available. That said, it was good enough quality. Staff – Compiments to the hotel. All staff were very polite, from reception to the cleaners. Every time you walked past a staff member, they always said Hello. The breakfast staff were excellent as well and were very friendly to all guests. Well done.
I would recommend this hotel if you were staying in the area, and you do get a quiet nights sleep in a comfy bed.

Room Tip: Book top floor to avoid stompers above.

Booked to stay here the night before the Reading Half Marathon on their special rate which included 4pm checkout so I could run, then come back and shower and relax before checking out. Room itself was functional although a couple of downsides were my double bed was actually two single bases pushed together so there was a dip in the middle so I couldn't lay spread across the bed. Also the TV had a max volume lock which was quite low, so I struggled to listen to certain channels. On the plus side, there was plenty of milk supplied for the tea making facilities, and a fridge to keep my drinks cold.

Another nice touch was starting breakfast earlier than usual so us runners could eat in plenty of time, although it would have been nice if they could have supplied some porridge, as running on a "full English" is not great for ya! There was plenty of fruit though, and complimentary coffee in the foyer throughout the day.

My only other issues were I didn't receive the two bottles of water I should have had on the HM rate, but this was quickly rectified by the desk, and that I had to get my room key recharged for the late checkout as the keys deactivate themselves at 12, but again swiftly resolved.

Overall, this was a nice hotel in a good location for any events at the Madjeski, and has complimentary parking for guests. I will certainly think about staying here again in the future.

I stay in a lot of Holiday Inn hotels and was very happy with this one. I stayed for one night on business and enjoyed the very reasonably priced Indian dinner buffet. My room was an average Holiday Inn room but very clean and comfortable. The free mineral water was very welcome indeed. Staff on reception were excellent and the gym was good. Breakfast was good.

Just two comments: 1. The wifi (even the paid for version) was dodgy and kept dropping out. 2. If you have mobility issues or heavy luggage beware that there is no lift to the upper floors so be sure to ask for a ground floor room.

I can happily recommend this hotel.

Stayed over as was working locally. Hotel does what it says on the tin. Clean and functional. i believe the bathrooms are due a makeover in 2014 which will is good. Breakfast was plentiful and speed of service good. Decent leisure complex in the hotel.The hotel is convenient for the M4 and plenty of free parking. Warm welcome received from the reception team on arrival and also on departure.

Room Tip: Upgraded bathrooms coming in 2014

For a warm welcome , comfortable surroundings and extremely helpful staff this hotel is a good choice. Every effort has been made to meet the needs of the business traveller with some nice touches such as free coffee in insulated cups available on departure. My only negative was the layout of the restaurant which was slightly to clinical at lacked a little atmosphere. That said I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms to the rear are quieter.
