Thameside Hotel
Ranked #20 of 31 Hotels in Reading
Reviewed 8 December 2007

Our family of 4, with our children aged 15 and 17, stayed at the Thameside for 5 days during a school speaking competition. It is perfectly located within a few minutes walk of the large shopping centre, The Oracle, as well as the train station, which can be used easily to get to surrounding sites. During soccer season, there is easy bus access to the stadium.
Pub restaurants in the vicinity give good home cooked-style meals and the Thameside itself has good meals.
We particularly enjoyed the family who runs the hotel. They are helpful, gracious people who are knowledgeable about the area and give good advice. The wireless connection was very helpful.
I would highly recommend the two apartments at the back of the hotel. Easy to access from the parking lot at the back and very nicely appointed, with well-supplied kitchens. The website photos are very representative of the appearance of the hotel.
We would definitely stay again and although we were there during the off-season, I would consider using it as a central point to visit the southwest of England--Oxford, Stonehenge, etc.

Reviewed 8 September 2007

I have stayed at this hotel three times now. The rooms have all appeared lovely, with a comfortable bed and quiet air conditioning. Unfortuantely noise from the road is a little loud at the front of the building.

The rooms are well decorated, containing all you'd expect, but some of the finishing are past their best (e.g. shelves with laminate peeling off). The bathrooms are all dated (coloured suites), but despite their age, the showers are nice and powerful.

The breakfast was disappointing. The pastries all look appetising, but don't believe your eyes, they were tasteless. Bad marks for bringing out soggy toast!

On the plus side, free parking is nice and handy, especially as the road in front is pretty busy almost all the time.
