I couldn't work out how to phone from one room to another which was a little frustrating at the time. I resorted to communicating via mobile phone. The rooms were clean and comfortable and quiet. Our bathroom was enormous. The general decor and setting was very pleasant. I love the older buildings. The staff were pleasant and helpful. I didn't have breakfast there but other family members did and said it was very good. We only spent one night there but I would be happy to return. The car park had plenty of parking spaces.
I stayed at the Royal Berkshire while settling my daughter in boarding school. The staff was very attentive to helping me with transport and where to find things. I felt at 'home' in the evenings enjoying the offerings of dining opportunities. A very comfortable setting.
Chose the hotel because we had an early morning Heathrow departure and didn't want any confusion in that regard. As it turns out it is not that close to heathrow but apparently you can't get much closer. Very fine, modern hotel with all the services and a 5 star buffet breakfast which was included. If you are following in our footsteps note that the hotel shuttle does not go from Heathrow 1-2-3 but only from terminal five.

Hotel choosen due to proximity to the venue we were attending, it's close to the rail station, in the town centre, easy too find...reception was spot on, nothing was a problem, room was beyond what I thought, modern, well thought out, clean...just what we needed, you cannot fault this cheap, modern well placed hotel.
