Millennium Madejski Hotel Reading
Ranked #8 of 31 Hotels in Reading
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 May 2014

My wife and I have just had a 2 night stay at the Madejski, Reading. The hotel is part of the Reading football stadium.....so if you are coming for the football, it is as good as you can get! The stadium and hotel are quite new, built in the middle of large car parks at the centre of some industrial estates - so don't be expecting a genteel rural stroll after your dinner.
For somewhere to stay for the night the hotel and its facilities are good (once again I wish Trip Advisor would give a 'good' category rather than average and very good). Our room was well equipped,

......
comfortable, clean,modern and spacious. It would benefit from a few more drawers.
The staff were friendly.
Buffet type dinners (we had two) were average. The breakfast was very good.
The hotel has a pleasant, airy, modern ambience and a large bar where you can sit and sip your London Pale ale...at almost £5 a pint.
If you need a short stay in the Reading area, you could do a lot worse than booking into this hotel, but be warned...if you are thinking of travelling into London from here, the journey can be horrendous. We came back from London on a Friday teatime (school boy error) and it took us 3 hours!!

Room Tip: Outside rooms overlook the car parks. Inner ones look into the interior atriums of the hotel. None o...

I've stayed at this hotel a couple of times, and on both occasions have been very pleased with the rooms, staff and breakfast. The rooms are a good size and are very clean. There is a good selection for breakfast, and I didn't feel hurried in any way.

Although the stay was for a business trip I specifically chose this hotel so that I could go to the Reading FC match that is played at the Madejski Stadium, that the hotel is attached to. If you're coming to a match it's a perfect location, as you can park at the hotel and get to/from your seat very quickly.

The only negative thing I would say about the hotel is the lack of value for money in the hotel restaurant. I met a friend for dinner and we both where not impressed with the amount of food you got for your money.

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights during march 2014 , for business meeting . All of us stayed at the hotel , so it was comfortable as there was no commute . If you love football and some matches are on this is a great place, but otherwise this is sort of away from city center or any malls or places you may visit. Rooms are very spacious and good for large family outing . Food is OK with not much choice and breakfast average.

Stayed here with the family whilst we visited Royal Windsor Horse Show. Room was very spacious, fantastic for a family. We stayed on the 3rd floor which was very quiet. The pool was great for the kids and breakfast lovely, til 10.30 too so we felt like we didn't have to rush. Would definitely stay here again next year!!

I stayed here two nights for a work conference. Rooms are large and comfortable, though felt toilet rues were of poor quality and a separate shower would be nice (at least get rid of the shower curtains).
Changing area for gym and pool is a little tired, and I felt pool area could have been cleaner. Food was nice. All in all, a nice enough if not outstanding hotel

Stayed in a large family room over the easter bank holiday weekend while passing through the area/visiting a friend.

The good bits -

The large family room is over 500sq ft. Possibly the biggest hotel room I have experienced - 2 double beds, a separate seating area, huge windows. It really did feel worth the £100 or so we paid.

There's a perfectly decent pool and spa bath with no restriction on children using them. When we visited (mid-late pm) there were only a couple of others using them. We didn't use the other health club facilities.

It was all a relatively stress free experience - easy to find and park. A fairly easy hotel to navigate around, wide corridors, open spaces, high ceilings, nicely decorated. It just felt like a pleasant 4 star hotel.

The bad bits -

Easy to find and park, but a pretty soulless out of town location, surrounded by car parks and the football stadium but not a problem for us.

Check in was a bit of a pain - my online reservation on their website was nowhere to be found (luckily I had a screen shot on my phone). It was dealt with fairly efficiently thereafter as there were plenty of rooms available but not sure what would have happened had they been full.

Finally, there was one member of staff at the restaurant who spoke to us rudely on a couple of occasions. I did note her name but can't be bothered to name and shame. I was going to give the place 3/5 on account of her unnecessary lack of courtesy but I think that would be harsh due to one 'bad apple'

So in summary -

A mainly positive experience - would certainly consider staying here again - doubt whether I would pay the typical weekday rates but the weekend rates certainly felt good value for money.

This is a really nice hotel with clean, comfortable, large rooms. Very good breakfast selection and the staff are friendly and efficient. Looks to have good conferencing facilities but did not use these. My room was first floor facing the car park and road and I did not hear any noise. Absolutely no complaints and will no doubt stay here again.
