Reviewed 11 March 2013

The staff were really friendly and very helpful. The hotel room had just been renovated and felt really modern. It is great being able to get a quick meal whenever you want because of the microwave and fridge in the room. Brilliant idea!

Stayed at the Hillingdon Prince Hotel for one night on a last minute trip. Was excellent value for money and the room was spacious and clean. The Self-catering facilities were excellent as I was checking out early I could bring my own breakfast and store it in the fridge provided. The young girl working at reception was very friendly and helpful. I never walked past a member of staff without being greeted with a friendly smile. The facilities very very good for the value and although I did not eat or visit the gym I would definitely return to the hotel for future stays in Reading. The Wi-Fi worked very well, much better than paying for it in the likes of a travellodge, and having a large TV in the room made for a very relaxed and comfortable stay. The reception staff were also happy for me to leave my case within the hotel after I checked out for the day and return later to collect it. All in all I had a very pleasant stay here and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good value friendly place to stay in Reading.

We chose this hotel for a small university reunion (after about 34 years) and it was just perfect! The rooms were all clean and adequately furnished. Everything worked. It was a comfortable and quiet night and the reception staff were welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was very pleasant in a light and airy room. It was ideally placed for walking around campus and also for a quick bus into town for the evening. It was close enough that we walked home from town later. Thank you Hillingdon Prince! Would definitely recommend this hotel.

We booked with Hillingdon Prince because they offered me a very good rate the night we needed to stay in Reading.

Good points: Very good price, free on site parking, microwave, kettle & fringe in room, staff welcoming.

Bad points: wash hand basin cracked, bathroom skirting and pipes very dirty. I see from other reviews that guests were happy with newly decorated rooms. Our room, was
in need of re-decoration.

We did not have time to sample breakfast pool or other facilities.

Just stayed for one night and had a lovely room on the ground floor with super en suite shower room and in excellent decorative order. Did not need to use the small kitchenette area provided ( microwave,hob and fridge ) but some may find that a handy feature.

Took Breakfast in the Conservatory dining room and had the full English with some of the continental. The food was cooked fresh and was excellent. Would recommend pre paying on the hotel website for breakfast.

Would recommend people booking the hotel using its own website as this we found offered the best way to book at the hotel. Made contact with the hotel before arriving and Emma on the reception kindly ensured we could have a slightly later check out time ( 12 noon as opposed to 11am )due to attending a wedding in the afternoon. This may only be available when the hotel is not fully booked and if needed you should request before booking.

Would be more than happy to stay here again if in the Reading area.

Room Tip: Book directly with the hotel is the best way for this hotel

First time staying at the Hillingdon Prince Hotel although we are frequent visitors to Reading. This was a nice find though Tripadvisor. We were pleasantly surprised at the accomodation although small, it was freshly decorated and modern. The shower room was a bit of a squeeze but had obviously been decorated to a high standard. The choice of breakfast was excellent. Good choice of juice, cereals, croissants etc. We had a cooked breakfast both mornings which was excellent. Staff very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be using this hotel again on our next visit to Reading.All in all excellent value for money.
