“excellent Christmas party”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013

Went for a group Christmas Evening party, the hotel is really nice with free coffee machines. Room was really nice with a very comfy bed and nice bathroom. Had good mirrors and proper lighting, nice and warm too.
The meal was in a different part of the hotel to where our room was, it was a little hard to find your way through the car park in the dark and wet to get to the party venue. Party room was nicely set out. The food I had was really nice. They served the main on hot plates which kept your foods nice and warm, a real change. Starter and Pudding was really good too. All came out together good services. After you could go to one of two bars or dance the evening away. The price of the alcohol was a little high but you come to except that from hotels

I travel here for business, and unfortunately don't have any other choice but to stay here. The rooms are generally clean but poorly maintained, mould covered one of bathroom walls, the shower was terrible, half of the lighting didn't work. The food is awful, if your going to pick anything pick the steak in the bar - it's the only thing which is half decent. If it was down to me I wouldn't touch this place with a barge pole.

Thank you for you comments on trip advisor, Whilst every effort is made to ensure that all our rooms are maintained to a required standard, it appears you feel let down on this occasion. I would like to pass on my apologies if your room was not up to a presentable standard.

Visited here in 2012 as the venue for my husband's works dinner. Not bad but room service was poor.

We are here again this weekend for the same function. Dinner started well enough - the food was hot (unlike last year) and the service was acceptable -until we had finished the main course. It went downhill steadily after that. Having sat down to eat at 8pm, it was gone 10pm before we got dessert. We never did get coffee ( we got tired of waiting, so took our cups and filled them up from the machines outside) and when we asked where the mince pies were, we were told the function was for 220 people, yet they had only catered for 150 mince pies.

Our rooms as in the Mansion - nice enough, but you would have thought they would have provided a plug for the bathroom sink. Our function was in the Executive Suite "two minutes walk away" - fine, but not in a strong wind and rain.

Room Tip: Make sure your room is at least in the same building if you are attending a function.

I was the lucky possessor of a free dinner, bed and breakfast voucher and I was keen to try this place out.

We had a triple room because I brought my wife and two little boys and we all had a great time. They loved the large pool and the buffet dinner was above expectations. Friendly and helpful staff throughout. We would happily go back as paying customers next time!

My experience is that the Room service takes ages and you have to keep chasing it up.... You get passed around between reception and the restaurant on the phone even though you select restaurant which takes time and means you have to explain the same things many times. The TV only has two channels... asked for it to be looked at yesterday and no one came. Same today and no one came to look at it.... Not quite sure where all the staff have gone... but hopefully they are having some well needed training!!! Upon check in things are not explained at all like the coffee stations you can find dotted around. Also a warning is there are hardly any signs to get to the hotel so follow the sign to the copthorne hotel and go left at the roundabout! or just go to the Copthorne hotel as it is probably better...

Room Tip: Stay at another hotel!

If you want a conference stay here. If you want a hotel DON'T.conferences take preference, we had to walk through a film set which was the complete foyer, approached by a suited man and told "this is a private function"! Waited 1hr 20mins for our evening meal. Disco that the whole of Reading probably heard. Tiny room, Really bad lighting, candle light would have been brighter.
Honestly this place is BAD!, worst place I have stayed. They need to make their minds up as to what they are because they are doing both badly. My advise is CHOOSE ANOTHER HOTEL!

This is superbly located but suffers somewhat from being a mix of old country house and new extension. Large and rambling ,it can be hard to find your way around. The staff are friendly and very happy to help you. The gym in the main building is very small and cramped.
