Michielek 2017/05/22
« very pleasant service-oriented super location hotel! »

after small hick-ups at the start (2nd room not ready despite late check-in) the hotel and staff confirmed the Novotel experience with service, quality, pleasure and fine food + facilities! very central in Reading and also affordable option if you plan to explore beyond London (Oxford, Windsor, Legoland, Harry Potter studios,...); and Reading itself is worth a visit too!

Dear Michielek, I’m very grateful that you could take time to leave us your thoughts and write a review. I am really glad that you were pleased and enjoyed your stay with us, and we hope to see you again in the very near future. Kind regards, Anne Dubruille, General Manager.

« Good stay »

Excellent staff, Especially the manager Arnaud, but all staff friendly and professional. Having the pool and gym area makes for a more relaxing time than usual on work trips. Tapas made by the staff in the bar area really good

« Best centre of town to stay »

We use the hotel in Reading a few times a year sometimes as a family visit to visit family in the area. The hotel is hard working and very good and their staff are excellent. Helpful and very proffesional.

« Perfect location »

I stayed two nights at this Novotel. Nice and friendly staff. Very close to the train station and workplace. Minus was the carpet and no slippers available. The web reservation and check-out is a plus. Mist though the automatic invoice.

« Excellent hotel in Reading »

The hotel is very conveniently located in the city center, near the train station. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. I got a room in the upper floor with nice view over the city. Very nice, comfortable rooms and excellent food.
