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

Decent hotel for last minute booking
Pros: City centre location. Not far from Train Station Easily accessible Clean and well maintained Great pub Cons: Thin walls and Ceilings. Was able to hear noises of all my neighbors, making sleeping very difficult No mention on the booking page that No check-in after 11:30 PM. Almost missed checking in Decent breakfast
