The apartment was excellently appointed with good facilities and a very comfortable bed. Check-in and check-out was extremely easy If there was one negative it would be that the blinds did not block the morning sun which woke me and my partner earlier than we would have liked.
Very clean, spacious and modern. Very helpful and pleasant staff.
Staff is really good. Best part is location. It's next to Reading station. Clean rooms, decent breakfast are another plus.
Really nice clean room, the car park was closed, but with no prior warning about this it made parking really difficult, there was a sign inside the hotel but that was too late! we ended up paying £30 for overnight parking, much more than the hotel advertised! Some facilities were also closed the ...
The staff was smiley and helpful. I would like larger variety in tea and coffees in the room facilities.
Was central easy to find handy for the shopping good location no complaints
A bit run down at the edges but adequate. Breakfast only continental a bit poor.
Beautiful early 20th century architecture. Private patio garden.
I liked the historical link to Charles Dickens. The atmosphere in the bar/restaurant was very good and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. The carpet in the bedroom had a few stains
Reading is a superb town to visit at any time of year. Packed with attractions, it offers something for people of all ages and interests. However, what's a break without the occasional shopping spree? Exploring new shops and hunting out bargains can be as much fun as sightseeing, and Reading's Broad Street Mall has everything you could need for a full day's retail therapy. There are plenty of hotels near the Broad Street Mall, from B&Bs to luxury hotels so, at the end of hard day's haggling, you can retire in comfort and examine your purchases without having to traipse too far!
The Broad Street Mall was built in the early '90s and caused something of a stir at the time. For Reading, it was the first of its kind, combining shopping with leisure facilities such as restaurants, events and activities to create an experience for the whole family. If you're looking for a base from which to go and shop, there are plenty of budget hotels such as the Coppid Beech Hotel, the Elizabeth House bed and breakfast and the Fines Bayliwick Hotel - all of which offer excellent surroundings in which to relax.
The shops in the Broad Street Mall are as wide and varied as the hotels in the area. Among the usual high-street suspects, you'll find independent and boutique shops, as well as high-end designer outlets. If you're in Reading for a special occasion and want to make your trip even more memorable, there are some stunning luxury hotels in the locality, such as the Oakley Court Hotel. Set on the outskirts of Windsor, this hotel is just a 20-minute trip down the M4, allowing you to see other sites, such as Reading Abbey and the Hellfire Caves, squeeze in some serious shopping and get back to your accommodation in time for a delicious meal or a relaxing drink.
Some travellers like to play sport on their downtime, while others like to soak up the local sights. Others still, love to shop. Booking a room in a hotel near Broad Street Mall gives you the facility to do as much or as little of each, as you want.
