                This is a great hotel, well decorated, clean and stylish. The location, right opposite Reading train station is excellent.

                Unfortunately the lack of adequate glazing / sound-proofing to the exterior windows meant that the noise from revellers in the street outside kept us awake for most of the night. A shame, because otherwise a nice hotel.

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                Close proximity to the town centre and the rail station. Good breakfast menu good quality service and food.

                Inexperienced cover staff being used when we checked in. Were given some wrong information. However, they did act efficiently to change the room after we had complained about the size and the lack of a veiw.

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                Decor, unobtrusive yet helpful staff, great bar, great sitting areas, paper in the morning. Wonderful.

              • Single
                7.8

                Great interior panache, good relaxed atmosphere.

                Mediocre food.

                The hote room, bathroom was new and well furnished

              • Couple
                7.4

                Good location and modern building

                No free wi-fi. Anxiously outrageous considering the money spent per night(£120). There is free wi-fi in just about all coffee shops and public locations in reading, even on the bus, so why not here. It's £10 for 24hrs if you want to use it and is slow anyway. Also a poor selection of tv channels, standard terrestrial plus a few sky channels, why no freeview, considering it is actually free with a compatible tv.

              • Single
                8.2

                Very stylish and comfortable.

                Lighting a little bit too subdued for some necessary activities.

              • Couple
                10.0

                Friendly, helpful and professional staff, decor and rooms offer warmth and comfort, location is nicely away from the bustle yet only a minute's walk from the main centre, good food and reasonable prices, including the mini bar, which offers a reasonable tariff. The centre is pretty typical with high street shops and chain restaurants, but as well as a good hotel restaurant there are places such as Bill's and Jamie's nearby.

                Good selection of free or toiletries to buy but how about adding toothpaste. The general promotion of this as a modern feeling hotel with relaxed ideas is ok, but some of the hotel quotes are a bit too ott or trying too hard to be cool and unnecessary - could do with a rewrite.

              • Single
                8.8

                Location ie city centre and railway. Room layout was fair and not cramped. bathroom was goo and the bespoke shower arrangement was very good/ efficient.

                The swiping of an additional £50 on arrival in case I scoffed the contents of the mini bar and climbed out of a window. This effectively causes the customers to queue up twice to pay. On the weekend I was there only one checkin/ checkout point was working owing to a fault.

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                Very spacious and luxurious bathroom! Beautiful bedroom.

                Although it is stated that the hotel has no parking, it does not say that it is actually impossible to drive up to the hotel. On the positive side, staff were very helpful getting luggage from the car and giving directions to a nearby parking garage.

              • Couple
                9.2

                I loved the style and theme of the hotel - Luxury throughtout

                It would have been nice to have a later check out and to have water availabe in the room - not part of the mini bar and a few more toiletries& extras such as dressing gown. Paid extra for the Superior Double Room but couldnt really see what I was paying for as we ended up staying in one of the rooms with disability asscess. This meant the room was bigger by deafult because of its purpose

              • Couple
                9.6

                The room was fantastic. Very nice bathroom too.

                The lighting in the brasserie was too low. Even at breakfast it was very dark.

              • Single
                8.8

                Location, room facilities, havng a bath (hate shower cubicles)

                lack of car parking

              • Couple
                9.2

                The hotels decoration and general feel was jaw dropping everytime we saw it

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                Convenient for the railway station and close to all amenities.

                Rather noisy at night due to the close proximity of lots of rowdy bars.
