"My recent stay at the IBIS HOTEL, Reading"
25th September 2013, Wesserkoff, Port Harcourt, Nigeria
As usual I enjoyed my stay at the Ibis Hotel, Reading. The lounge now has a new look. This this is refreshing and very much appreciated. Kudos to the Management on this transformation of the lounge. I find the free Wi-Fi most welcome. The staff remain as friendly as before.I was in Room 1206 and I observed that that the Air conditioning Unit was not functioning properly. The room was rather too warm. I hope this will be rectified soon.View management response »

"Perfect for the Business traveller"
9th September 2013, MJ2329, Lincolnshire
Great location, only 2 mins walk from the train station, which was great as I arrived late at night. I was warmly greeted at Reception and check in was quick. The room was big enough and very clean and tidy. I thought the design of the room and bathroom was a clever use of space. I had a good night sleep with a comfy bed.Breakfast the next day was very tasty and set me up well for the day. I'd recommend this hotel for business trip or quick stay.View management response »

Very good hotel to stay. Very near to the railway and bus station. Very good reception officials. Only problem is room availability is very lean so book the hotel in advance. Breakfast is good but some more variety needs to be added.View management response »

The service on arrival and departure was excellent. The decor is fun and original. Rooms are very clean and light. Excellent, spacious shower. Very comfortable bed.

"Does what it says on the tin"
22nd August 2013, jinzx_uk, London, United Kingdom
The rooms are basic but clean. the pod bathrooms are small but the shower space is unexpectedly large. It made the perfect "base" for our hen do weekend. The renovations going on around reception didn't disturb us with any noise and didn't seem to make any impact on the service we received.Didn't have breakfast so can't comment on the food- with so many pubs and restaurants nearby you're sure to find something you like.View management response »

"Good for weekend break - Ibis Reading Centre"
22nd August 2013, WindowwithanL, London, United Kingdom
I stayed at the Ibis Reading Centre during the Rewind festival in Henley-on-Thames in August. This hotel was a fantastic and affordable alternative to all the Henley hotels who seem to triple their prices during the festival. Easy to get to by train being so close to Reading station. It is also close to lots of shops, restaurants etc. The only down side was we had to leave the windows open as it was so hot and the air con make too much noise to leave it on overnight, this meant we heard alot of noise from the main entrance street which has lots of pubs/clubs. It's nothing a good pair of ear plugs wouldn't counteract though.View management response »

I was very impressed with the hotel the rooms were very good and clean the beds were really comfortable and there was tea & coffee in the room and a hair dryer we will be booking again the same time for next year. It's in the town centre where everything is so it's really handy for the bars restaurants and shops plenty to do looking forward to coming back next year.View management response »
Management responseDear Sheena,So glad you had an enjoyable time at Ibis Hotel in Reading Centre. We very much appreciate the feedback and we hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Krishnam
"Ascot family day"
15th August 2013
I booked a party of 32 people to stay at this hotel in Reading for 2 nights as we were going to Ascot on the Saturday and it is only 20 to 25 minutes on the train and costs £3.95 each return. The hotel is right in the centre of Reading within easy access of the station, bars & restaurants. The hotel and the rooms are clean & modern. Breakfast was on offer for £4 each and was very good with lots of choice. I would always stay in this hotel in Reading.View management response »

"Just what we needed"
31st July 2013, RosieToot, Colchester, United Kingdom
Comfortable room, and very glad of the air con on a very hot and humid day. Close to train station which was perfect for what we needed. Breakfast was ok, though it would have been nice to have more hot options for vegetarians and the scrambled egg was a little crusty from being out for too long. I would definately stay here again if I was in town and would recommend it to others.View management response »
Management responseDear Rosie TootTheank you for letting us know about your stay. We welcome all feedback and take on board your comments regarding breakfastWe are looking forwrad to welcoming you again.RegardsAnne
"Not worth it .... feels like an overpriced lodge without proper internet"
21st July 2013, yuds_raj, Bangalore, India
I have stayed at quite a few hotels during my business travels to the UK and other countries but this short stay has to be the worst in recent years. The concept behind an Ibis hotel is not that of a luxury hotel but an economy business hotel which has just the necessary stuff in an optimized space. I must say that the Ibis in Reading fails on that count too.RoomThe setting of the room is not at all thought out well. There is no desk or even a small side table near the bed/centre table to keep some regular items. The bathroom is quite cramped up. The lighting is poor and controlled by only 1 switch (no lamps,etc.) There is no wardrobe but a small rack and hence you need to be using your suitcase daily which needs to be put under the desk which eventually leads to there being no place to sit except the bed.Cleanliness and ServiceThere was a power outage one of the nights and the power was not back for 15 hours and hence there was no water, no internet, no phones and no air conditioning. People wake up in the night to pitch dark floors and there is not even a note under the door to explain what is going on. The lift isn't working and neither are the room phones. The next morning there is no housekeeping and we return to the rooms to find them in the same state we left them. InternetTo put it in a line, " The internet sucks, even the paid one" After the power outage, the internet did not come back until we check out. This is unacceptable especially for people travelling on business.Conclusion: The hotel is not worth the money at all. The location is good but there are other options with similar location as well.View management response »
Management responseDear GuestThank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay at the ibis Reading when we experienced the power outage due to an issue with Scottish & Southern Energy. However if you would like to dicsuss this further, please contact me dirctely on h5431-gm@Accor.com Thank you once again for your patience and understanding over what was a very trying and testing time for myself and the team. Yours sincerely Anne

"Good value hotel in good location"
10th July 2013, Carole T, Chester, United Kingdom
This was our second visit to the Ibis in Reading - we stayed there each time as we needed easy access to Reading station to travel to a family gathering. The hotel is well located, reasonably priced and has all that you need or expect of a hotel of this type. The staff were very pleasant and efficient, but were clearly over-stretched, so that we had to wait for around 10-15 minutes to get a drink at the bar, and similarly had to wait to be seated for breakfast each day as both of the staff on duty were busy.View management response »

Great central location with discounted parking,check-in and check-out at 12 noon .Check-in really fast,rooms fairly basic but more than adequate, with a fantastic shower.We had an odour problem in one of the bathrooms but housekeeping were there to sort it out within minutes. All-in-all a very good hotel with a fantastic breakfast buffet with lots of choice for £7.95 would definitely recommend this hotelView management response »
