I am not one to complain or criticise about the silly things when I visit a hotel.
As you can see from my reviews I’m easily pleased.
I was not pleased with the Lake Reading Hotel at all. Our room had a small balcony overlooking the river, which was very romantic. As soon as we walked into our room we noticed that our bed was very small. It was a small Double, if we put together two singles they would have been bigger. We had a TV with only 5 channel, which was annoying as we didn’t even have freeview.
Bathroom had hair on the floor and in the bath. The wallpaper was coming off the walls.
We had a rough nights sleep due to the small bed – we hardly got any sleep.
We had Bed and Breakfast included, we filled out a breakfast form the night before and hanged it on the door. The hotel failed to pick up our form and we did not get breakfast on time. I then called the restaurant and ordered our breakfast. When our food arrived the order was completely wrong. I specifically stated that I did not want meat on my plate and they ignored my request and also missed things off.
We had Dinner at the hotel – Restaurant staff we very nice. Average food – not worth the money. I ordered Steak and Chips which cost £18.00. The steak wasn’t great. I left most of it. We ordered desert to our room and we got a fork instead of spoon to eat our custard. HHhhhmmmm.
Night 2 was not great. We thought because we were so tired we would probably sleep through the 2nd night. But that wasn’t the case and we were looking forward to going home.
We had breakfast and left because I just wanted to go home and sleep.
When leaving the hotel the reception (Eastern European Lady) left the reception to make tea. So we had to wait around in the hotel longer. When returning she did not apologise, she didn’t ask if we had a nice stay but just gave me the bill – no smile or no eye contact, no thank you or see you soon.
I was very disappointed with my stay and I will not be returning. Waste of money and a waste of a “Romantic weekend”
