Great value in Charles Dickens themed hotel.
We only stayed a night, as we had just arrived from Paris and were intending to pick up a car the next day. The rooms were clean and adequate, and fine for the price. The staff were helpful and the meals were lovely. The hotel is where Charles Dickens did some readings, and it had a Charles Dickens theme that gave the place an atmosphere of culture. There were only two shortcomings: there was no lift and, therefore, the stairs were a nightmare particularly with luggage; and the place is actually a local pub, which gets filled with locals who are oblivious to its cultural heritage and are more interested in watching football and detracting from the atmosphere. That being said, it was good value and, being within striking distance from London (about 40 minutes by train), would be better value that staying closer in.

staff very, very helpful and friendly. Quirky hotel with lots of stairs, but hotel staff will usually help with bags. Comfortable room - a bit old fashioned but good bathroom. clean and comfy. only a few minutes walk to centre of reading and about 10 minutes to rail. free breakfast is great, and good bar food in the evenings. I've stayed here a few times. good value for money for this location

Not so Great Expectations
Customer service was basic and all though breakfast was included the staff did not seem to take interest in the details of what you would like. For example you were asked if you wanted a full english once replied with yes they turned and walked away. There was no mention of what you get. They also advise that the breakfast is cooked to order this is not the case. 5 minutes after requesting breakfst it was ready. The toast was cold etc. The bathroom needed attention, the toilet was a liitle loose, the sink plug was detatched and the shower controlls were broken and the temperature didnt seem to go higher than warm. The kettle was full of limescale which was flaked off and floating in the water that seemed as though it had been there a short while. Not very pleasing especially on top of a very basic room, for the money I would say go else where. Parking is not available on the premises and I had to park in the shopping centre which added over £30 to my bill taking the total to £114. On a poitive note, breakfast was included (even though basic and not as advertised).

comfortable single room
Reception staff very friendly. Single room was cozy, heater and iron provided. Be aware that walls are paper thin and there is music played next door until around 11 so bring earplugs.
