2/10 Poor

I left an iPad when I checked out. I called up Pentahotel to let them know. I actually used Find My IPhone function to locate the iPad in the hotel. And you would not believe how much trouble I had to go through to get my iPad back because of poor management of the hotel. It is so disgustingly bad I almost had to call the police to resolve the matter. I had the most terrible experience in all the hotels I have stayed in my life!

Could be better!
photos of the hotel interior and the rooms are not really a true representation of the hotel. in reality the hotel was souless, and a little grubby. the room was smaller and less attractive than the room I was expecting. bits of the furniture laminate were peeling off and the bathroom tiling was mouldy in places. The location is convenient for central Reading. I'd probably not stay here again.
