This hotel is very conveniently situated in the centre of Reading. It's not the best and no doubt is not the worst either.
Comfort though is seriously compromised by the inability to cool the rooms. If your expectation is that the rooms are air conditioned then please be aware - they are not!
Even on the lowest setting the room doesn't get chilled and the fan speed adjustment is completely useless. You need to stand on the bed and put your hand against the grill to even know it's operating.
The windows open only a matter of an inch or two and so the only way to get any comfort at all is to ask for fans from the helpful staff.
As the weather gets warmer this hotel will become unbearable and any claims for air conditioning in the rooms is somewhat misleading.
