« 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

« 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.

« Very good hotel despite terrible check in experience. »

Hotel was in a perfect location and very clean and tidy. Unfortunately when 3 of our group of 6 arrived to check in the hotel reception said we did not have a booking reserved with the hotel. Despite showing the reception desk the email confirmation from booking.com that 3 rooms had been reserved for 2 nights the reception said the rooms were not reserved. After 45 mins of arguing the reception eventually offered us the three rooms???? No explanation for the confusion and no apology. I was also charged for one breakfast that we did not have??

« Very efficient - good breakfast - clean room »

It waswhat we wanted - a hotel near the station. However we are staying in Reading in a few weeks but NOT at the Ibis because if the extorsionate rate we were asked to pay. We booked elsewhere

« OK but no drawers in the room & bed not suitable for a disabled person. »

The bed was not suitable for a disabled person (like me). It was too high and there was nothing to hold on to when getting into bed. There were no drawers to put our things (e.g. clothes) into. Not every person only stays for one night! The breakfast was very good and the reception area and bar were nice.
