Reviewed 19 September 2012 via mobile

For the price you pay, this hotel/guest house is surprisingly better than many 4 star hotels. Comfortable beds, spacious rooms, top quality breakfast and a short distance from Reading centre. If you can do without a proper bar you'll be quite pleased with the Bath Hotel. I would certainly stay here again on business as it's functional, clean and does what it says on the tin.

My collegue and I stayed at this hotel for four nights whilst working in Reading. The hotel is well presented, clean but probably due for a little tlc here and there. The staff are pleasant and helpful. Our room was on the front of the hotel and the room itself was very clean and tidy. The bathroom was clean and modern but a little small. Its worth bearing in mind that the rooms on the front of the hotel as ours was get traffic noise but there are plenty of other rooms if you are a light sleeper. The room included a flat screen tv, free Wi Fi, tea and coffee making facilities and plenty of storage for your clothes etc. The breakfast area was nicely presented with a choice of tea, coffee, juice, yougurts, cereal, fruit and cooked breakfast. Most mornings I had scrambled egg on toast which was very nice and I had a full english breakfast on my last day which I probably would not recommend. There is a small bar area in the hotel which sells wines, spirits, canned bear and soft drinks. There is also a bus stop outside of the hotel that will take you into Reading centre for £1.00. Overall my stay at this hotel was pleasant.

Room Tip: Rooms and the front get a lot of traffic noise.

We needed a hotel for one night in Reading, and chose this hotel based on price & reviews. On arrival, they wanted payment - this always raises my suspicions about the quality of the hotel, so we asked to take a look at the room first. However the room (4) was fine - big enough, comfy bed, nice bathroom & in good decorative order. The room was on the back of the hotel - away from the busy road and traffic lights outside.

There is a car park (for about 12 cars) - we got the last space. I don't know where you can park if all of the spaces have been filled.

Breakfast was fine - it appeared freshly cooked to order with a runny egg and nice bacon - just a shame that they couldn't manage a hot plate as well!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back of the hotel - away from Bath Road

We only visited this hotel as a stop over but would not visit again . Room was ok but the bathroom was very tiny and it all needed a bit of t.l.c. especially the curtains which were not attached to the pole.Breakfast was adequate but not exciting and they were too busy to poach an egg, I recommend a few more staff to keep customers happy and perhaps returning!

The hotel is situated on the main road into Reading, less than 10 minutes to the Oracle on a very frequent bus service and has free parking, so we left the car there all day.
It is an Edwardian building, very clean and well presented. Our room (4) was spacious, warm and nicely decorated, it was really pleasant and comfortable with everything we needed, including free wi-fi.
Breakfast is good and cooked to order but the hotel does not provide dinner or bar meals. There is a Beefeater across the road which serves grills, and guests are welcome to order takeaways to the hotel. We ate in the Beefeater one night and the next caught the bus into Reading and had a good Thai meal.
The best feature of the hotel is the staff who are all warm, friendly and helpful - Debbie (do-it-all) seemed to be around day and night and was always smiling. We would certainly stay again if in Reading

Room Tip: Room 4 was good, ask for one not facing main road.

The Bath hotel is not badly located as its near to the Rivermead Centre and the Oracle complex. Rooms are fairly small but comfortable with hair dryer shower and tv in the room and also tea/coffee making facilities. Breakfast is normally included and is not bad. My only concern is if the hotel is sold out I doubt there would be room left in the dining room for everyone's breakfast. Overall an average hotel to stay at but if your paying a flying 1 night stop in the area then this hotel really isn't bad.

Paid £50 for a single room. Room is nicer than travelodge and staff are friendly. Decor is nice actually, and not depressing like some cheap places.

Walls are somewhat thin and it's close to a rail line, but I didn't find either too bad.

Can't beat it for the price! :-)
