Premier Inn Reading Central Hotel
Ranked #6 of 31 Hotels in Reading
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 July 2011

I have stayed in Premier Inns before and never had a bad stay. The Premier Inn in central Reading was however the best I've stayed in. I was lucky enough to get the £29 per night deal. The location was wonderful - right across the road from the Oracle shopping centre, where I was meeting friends and family over my stay. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. I wanted to kidnap the amazing pillows! The staff were very friendly and helpful. I didn't eat dinner or lunch there, but the menu looked great. The breakfast was varied and lovely. The only downfall was the small limited hotel car park. I was lucky to find a space at £5 per night, otherwise I would have had to pay to stay for three nights in the Oracle car park, which was very expensive. I would recommend this hotel for business and pleasure and I will definitely be staying there again.

We stayed at the Premier Inn Reading Central for a 1 night stay, as wecame to watch a show at the Hexagon Theatre. The Theatre was within easy walking distance from the Hotel (5minutes) Staff greeted us with a smile/good welcome and professional attitude.
Our room was spacious clean and comfortable. The Freeview TV was a bonus as my wife was able to catch up with her soaps late in the evening. Bar staff were also friendly and punctual of their service. We had an evening meal here too, a little disappointing as we found a creepy crawly in my wifes rocket salad. Although staff dealt with this promptly and professionally, is spoilt the dining experience. Still the Breakfast was hot and plentifull and breakfast staff were polite /friendly and helpfull. We would use this hotel again in the future...

Room Tip: Clean tidy and comfortable Hotel

Really good Premier Inn. The family room we had was fantastic, with 2 single beds for the kids. The breakfast (as in all Premier Inns) was great and the bacon was immense as it was chargrilled.
This is a very centrally placed Premier Inn with added proximity of The Oracle and the excellent food outlets there, Jamie's Italian was visited twice and enjoyed by all.
Parking is a real issue here and not highlighted as such whilst booking.

Why buld a hotel with over 500 rooms and have a car park that holds less than 50 cars
The room was clean and up to the Premier standand

but they need to address this lack of parking also the £5 fee that the public car park charges is just the overnight rate this then rockets once you pass 8am and go on the hourly rate

And for some reason the room we had at the rear of the hotel the windows are not clear view
but are bathrom type glass so you cant even see out of them !!!!!!!

Room Tip: arrive early

The premier inn in reading central is second to none. It has everything you could ask for to make your stay comfotable. The rooms are excellent clean smell fresh and lovely fluffy towels (changed daily). i would highly recomend this hotel for buisness or pleasure. The only downside was the parking facilities you pay £5.00 per night but if you go out in your car the car park is full when you get back. Apart from that excellent

My wife and I enjoyed a 3 night stay in the Premier Inn in June 2011. The room was as one would expect within the Premier Inn chain, in that it was clean and well maintained. The beds were comfortable and the staff were exceptionally pleasant, particularly on the reception desk. Breakfast was excellent and the back bacon was the best I have ever tasted in any hotel or restaurant!
