Tap indicator was wrong. Red was cold and blue was hot !! No fan in bathroom so streamed up when had shower and made the room smell damp.

« ok »

The curtains were dirty. Not very good lighting. And could hear next room toilet flushing.

« Amazing room and the personal touches were fab! »

The room was spotless and a lot nicer than we were expecting for the price! The free breakfast was great and a brilliant variety for all there. I also requested whether the staff could kindly place something in the room for my boyfriends 21st and they went above and beyond and placed a card, balloons, cookies and champagne in our room, I can't thank them enough!

« Excellent nights stay. »

From check-in to departure, I could not fault any part of my stay. Friendly staff, clean room and unbelievably close to the train station...!!

« pleasant but poor sleeping experience. »

Pleasant, as always. Pillows not good as I like feather pillows and find it difficult to sleep with anything else.

« More than sufficient  »

Location was the main thing, so I could walk from the station. Then wifi, which was good. Otherwise sufficient standard.

« At the beginning it's all messed up but the room was nice »

The room was nice, the bed was comfortable, everything's was lovely but at the night I couldn't sleep at all. I don't know why. Also at the beginning when we arrive, it's all messed up, communication difficulty. If need to improve deaf aware.

« My worst stay at ibis reading centre  »

Having stayed at ibis many times before I was a bit dissatisfied with my last stay. A few days before our stay I rang up to ask about parking. The lady that answered the phone sounded annoyed that I rang to ask. Then the day of check in I got a call from the supervisor saying I needed to make payment. Fair enough I thought I could pay at the property and I was wrong but the annoying thing is I booked my stay at least two weeks before so why did I receive this call on the day I was meant to be checking in. I was told if I didn't make payment there and then I would lose the room. I can only think that the reason all of this happened is because Reading was extremely busy that weekend so he wanted to sell the room for a higher price. I have stayed in this hotel so many times before and have always showed up and paid without fuss so I have to say I was quite disappointed with this whole situation. I just think it could have been handled better. The room itself was ok but the hot water wasn't consistent in the shower so a bit unpleasant.

« Generally very good »

We stayed in the older Ibis rooms, which were much better as there is is far more shelf storage space for clothes. If only the other room type was available, I would seek a different hotel. Breakfast was adequate but there was no choice of cheeses. We were disappointed that ITV4 television channel was not available: The Tour de France cycle race was being televised.

« Nice hotel  »

Hotel was lovely and kept well clean - staff were very friendly and helpful - located right in the city centre. Downfall to this hotel is the street it is located on. It is very rough and full of drunks and gangs outside

Very clean, spacious and well specified rooms which made my visit restful and enjoyable.

Jt Solo - 18/07/2017
« Good stay »

I was originally given a room on the 10th floor but had to ask to be moved to a lower floor. This was no problem and was done with no fuss and plenty of smiles from the reception staff. Everyone was welcoming. The only downside was that the bed was very uncomfortable and the water pipes next to the plastic pod shower room kept gushing throughout the night.

« Small details make a big difference  »

Excellent. It was my girlfriend's birthday and management, cleaning, reception and breakfast staff all contributed to providing a service above and beyond what can be reasonably expected. Thank you all so much.
