If second bedroom is used, with only 2 people booked in the reservation, I will have to add an additional cleaning charge, for the additional time/costs for laundering of the bedding. Thanks for understanding. Guest access Full access to the whole apartment, This is not a shared apartment; you have the whole place to yourselves; 2 large bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, living room open kitchen & balcony. (If your dates are not available, contact me regardless as I have access to other apartments in the same building) Neighbourhood overview If you are new to the area and you want to know where to go and where not to go, just ask me! I have been living here for 35 years and without wanting to sound like a Wiki man, where Reading is concerned, I am a proper 'Know All' Getting around You can walk anywhere centrally within Reading in 3-10 minutes. Buses and Trains are all close by and the apartment comes with secure under croft parking - I may even be able to provide a second parking bay (extra cost). We also have UBER in Reading I am trying to think of something negative, something that will impact your stay. I honestly can not think of a single thing.. this is my home, and I am opening it up to you.. so please treat it respectfully :) Address: Queens Wharf, 47 Queen's Road TBC, Reading, RG1 4QE, United Kingdom Access You can access Queens Wharf by the front entrance (Kennet Side Canal) or the rear entrance (Queens Road) using the black bullet like security fob. Car access is from Queens Road only using the Gate fob (located in the apt). On your initial arrival (depending on what time it is), either myself or Matthew will meet you at the apartment and let you in to the car park and show you to the apartment. There is a self check-in option if needed. There is a Concierge Service More
