“Still going strong if not stronger......”
Reviewed 9 June 2011

I stay at the Hotel quite often as it is convenient for where i am posted. Whilst this may not be in the centre of Reading it is a great Hotel with fantastic views from every bedroom over the lake. it is also much easier to get onto the motorway in the morning rather than crawl through reading city centre traffic. The food is great and the bar has a great atmosphere especially on live sporting events (tv's show the sports in the bar). Staff are exceptionally friendly and always accommodating. This is my home in Reading.......

Needed to stay somewhere for work and booked this place as the pictures looked alright... boy is it misleading!!

The hotel is in a hole.... really off the beaten track - even with a car it was a trek.

Getting there it became apparent that its no longer a Copthorne - now something like the Reading Lake Hotel... and check in was a joke! Fill a badly photocopied form in and write credit card number on the back! How professional.

The room itself was large... but .... honestly Travelodge would be 4* compared to this! The carpets felt that they had been laid on concrete! The bed looked like something from a poor B&B and the whole room just stank. But as i checked in near midnight and was out for 7am couldnt be bothered to complain.

All in.. nothing positive about the place in the slightest.

Room Tip: Use another hotel.
