« 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.
