Read some poor reviews so didn't know what to expect. Check In was good with helpful friendly staff. Room was clean, however could do with an update. Stayed on first floor room 4 but with no lift the top floor could be a problem for some who have lots of luggage. Great location & would stay again when on business in Reading

Fair 4.0
Mainly a let down.
I walked into a cold room with an open room. Upon closing it I realised two things: 1. it was open because there the room smelled of an old person home and 2. The heating didn't work. I asked at the reception where a person told me the boiler was having issues. I went to inquire around midnight again and was told that it should be working now. It started heating up around 2am. The room itself was somewhat dirty (furniture and carpet) but I think it was mostly the smell that contributed to the feel of an old place. The food in the morning was alright. Check in and out was quick. For the price range I would recommend to look for a different hotel or airbnb.

Lovely comfortable room. Great staff. Could do with updating. Old fashion hairdreirs in bathroom so no where to sit and hose not long enough to reach mirror. Also guests got 20% off their meals

I found the inn perfect for my needs. However I thought the maintenance of the building neglected i.e. the bedrooms windows were very dirty outside and the towel rail had come unhinged. Young staff who were helpful and cheerful. Heating didn't work the first night but this was rectified.
