Reviewed 17 March 2008

The hotel has a great location near to both railway station and Oracle centre. Rooms were far too hot and the advertised air conditioning was not present. Wifi did work but signal was not very strong. We rang the Hotel and got a great price (cheaper than all web sites)

Average B&B, rooms are clean but unmodernised.. staff are so-so.

Some of the radiators and lights didn't work, which meant the room was cold and dark... Oh, and there is variable hot water, which is not ideal first thing in the shower in the morning on a cold winters day!

The hotel was very clean, nice friendly staff. Ideal for the Reading festival as it is only ten minutes from the entrance and also it is only ten minutes away from the town centre (both walking). The hotel is secure with key card entrance and on the room so you can come and go as you please.

I would stay here again, however on my next visit I would request a room to the rear as the road in front of the hotel can be busy at times. This may have been due to the festival traffic.

They provide a good full english breakfast in the morning, but if you are a veggie they will cater for you, but no soya products, just an english breakfast with out the meat or beans on toast.

If you are going for the festival or wish your teens to stay in a safe hotel rather then camping then this is the place to book. but book earliy it can get full very quickly.

out of ten i would rate this 7/10
