We are from Holland and we were travelling bij train througt the UK. It is a very nice place to be. It is in a peaceful area and the service was very good.
We had a lovely room and everything was clean. Breakfast was included , in our stay, and is was good. Nothing was too much to help us.
It is very easy to get to the hotel by train. There is a station nearby the hotel. Also is a busstation nearby to get to the centre of Reading.

Our first night in England. We chose the hotel from the picture - wanted an English looking house - and it worked out great. Very friendly service. Free Wireless. Everything ok at a very reasonable price.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Abbey Hotel recently and it was a very pleasant experience. My room was tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean and more than adequate for my needs. The proprietors were extremely nice and welcoming and nothing seemed too much trouble for them...It is quite near to the town center so that is a plus but also had local shops near by. A lovely warm and friendly place to stay... highly recommended..

Room Tip: I am sure that if you rang them first they would be only too pleased to help you.

The service at the hotel was excellent with a very personal touch. Breasfast is also provided. The price is equally very reasonable for a hotel in the heart of Reading.the room was very well decorated in a morden style, however the kitchen and dinner area was notef to have old chairs and table but very classic and beautiful.

I found them to be very welcoming and friendly. They were very flexible and allowed us to check in early and to pay when we arrived. There is a great pub within walking distance called the Rose and Thistle which did a great Saturday evening meal and didn't require going out onto Oxford Rd. Oxford Road (close by) looked potentially a bit rough and would not recommend walking along at night.

Room Tip: Room one is a double on the ground floor and quiet and cooler than upstairs rooms facing the back.

Staff could not have been more helpful and polite, room was clean and pleasant, breakfast generous and varied. Could not fault hotel for price. Taxi from Station only cost £5, area nice and quiet. A better place to stay in Reading.

A huge difference from last years stay! Renovated rooms, more tasteful furniture and the most significant difference in the way of hosting by the new management: discreet, attentive, flexible on customer's needs and for my taste exeedingly humorous - making them even a little more entertainer than "only" hotel managers. All that on an average charge makes the "new" Abbey House Hotel worth the visit.

Stayed: June 2013, travelled with friends
