« Everything was great except the shower »

Great hotel, great location, great breakfast, room was comfortable... only complaint, the shower... too much cold water being mixed with the hot, at maximum hot, luke warm, shivered taking a shower... reported to front desk, no change, no follow-up... had only a day or two left on my visit, lived with it... I would probably stay again...

« City centre stay »

Excellent place to stay, just a short walk from the railway station. Arrived after just before midnight but there was still someone on reception to greet you. Very clean and comfortable, didn!t have time to stayfor breakfast.

« IBIS Reading »

This hotel is OK if you manage to get a rate under about GBP80, but do not pay the much higher rates sometimes quoted. It is right on Friar Street in the centre of town. Buses to all areas of Reading pass outside the front door and the station and coaches to the airport are 2 minutes walk away. However, the hotel is not for motorists as private cars are not allowed in the Reading downtown area. Great for folks who can still use their legs!

« Ideal City Hotel »

I have stayed here before on business but this was a family trip for a wedding. We booked three rooms. My son and girlfriend were arriving on the train from Newcastle for a quick change and off to the reception. The hotel is just a three minute walk from the station. Ibis made sure their room was available for a fast turnaround. The breakfast is excellent with a good range from a full English to fruit, cereals and pastries. The coffee is OK too, but there are the usual high street outlets close by for your regular caffeine hit. With just a 25 minute journey time on the train into London Paddington this would be an ideal location for a capital visit for the day too. Windsor is a 20 minute drive away too. With free WiFi and fast checkout what's not to like? The only downside that makes this a 4 for us on this occasion is that the beds are firm and my wife suffered as this aggravated her spinal arthritis.

Dear Guest Thank you for your feedback. It is always a pleasure to receive a positive feedback from our guest. I am really happy to hear you have enjoyed our breakfast and our team were pleasant and helpful. We are looking forward to welcome you back in ibis Reading. Best Regards Chander Kaushik

« Comfy room »

Comfy rooms and it was quiet clean, apart from the housekeeper who kept knocking n my door in the morning before 9am yet checkout time was 12noon, I hope the management will do something about it in future.

ibisReading, Manager at Ibis Reading Centre, responded to this review

Dear Molly Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay. I am really sorry to hear that your were disturbed by our team before 9 am. Please accept mi sincere apologize. I can guarantee to you I have already made farther action to avoid similar situation in the future. We have trained the team again. I hope I can welcome you back to our hotel. Best Regards Tania Gandarinho

« Ibis Reading Centre of Excellence! »

Rooms in any Ibis hotel are similar but you can tell which are serviced by total customer care and those which adhere to the basic expected experience. We stayed at the Ibis Reading Centre and couldn't fault them on either the fabric or the staff - and that included our breakfasts in the restaurant. Congratulations to all concerned. If I could offer any observation it would be to suggest that the lounge downstairs could perhaps be made a little more comfortable and private.

ibisReading, Manager at Ibis Reading Centre, responded to this review

Dear Ken Many thanks for your comments. I am glad to hear you had a good stay in our hotel. It is always good to receive a positive feedback, I will share your words with our team as a recognition of them job. We are looking forward to welcome you back in ibis Reading. Best Regards Tania Gandarinho

« Expensive but worth it »

Fantastic hotel in regards of cleanliness, style, location, staff, breakfast and the functionality of all applicances in the room. However, this comes at the cost of a fairly high price tag (but it is certainly better than others you can have at the same price!)

Dear Matthew Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay. I am really happy to hear you enjoyed our hotel overall. we are looking forward to welcome you back in ibis Reading. Best Regards Tania Gandarinho
