« Way below what was expected »

I was negatively impressed by the low quality of the room I got. Just being very busy during the day, prevented me from complaining on the spot, which I should have done. Also to add that being a member I was identified accordingly at check in and given a “nice quiet room”, according to the receptionist... instead the room was quite dirty, lot of stains on the walls, carpets and window covers. Even the sheets on the bed looked a bit wrinkled, which surprised me. The toilet was continuously leaking, making it at times impossible to flush. Also sink’s evacuation was not working properly. In one word, a disaster

« Cold room - but heater quickly brought »

The stay was good except for the coldness of the room. The room was chilly when we arrived so we put the air vented heating system. When we returned the room was still rather cold so we requested a heater. The staff indicated that they were busy delivering heaters to several rooms, but ours came in about 5 minutes and it warmed the room up fairly quickly. I don't know why the heating was to working in a cold spell!

« Good but not as good as before »

This is my second time staying at Novotel Reading, on arrival we were quickly checked in and were able to buy a parking space last minute that was great and very convienient. On arrival to our room we noticed the bed sheets were dirty, this was quickly rectified by reception who upgraded our room and let us move our belongings. Overall the service here is still impeccable, they even sent up an electric heater very quickly when we rang down informing we were cold, but I did notice the cleaning level has dropped slightly, it not dirty just more dust around that I never noticed before. The service in this hotel is immeccable and I would return because of this.

« Lovely stay in Reading »

We have stayed here a couple of times and enjoyed the hotel immensely- we cannot fault the rooms, breakfast is very good and all the staff are helpful and friendly. The hotel is situated near the train station and in the town which is ideal.

« Comfortable and friendly »

Staff was really friendly. Breakfast was varied and delicious. Beds were big and comfortable, although pillows were a bit too soft. Swimming pool was great, but didn't get to use the gym. Maybe next time location wise is also really good, with a Nandos and Sainsbury on your doorstep.

« Bad parking and other issues wont make me eager to come back! »

Good: - Polite staff - Breakfast was great, full English breakfast, fruits, juice etc. - Cot bed for baby was available on request - Room was tidy and neat - Pool available, no baby pool though, but not too deep (1.5 - 2m) - Small children's play area is available (play kitchen, slide etc) - Sofa bed was included in the room Bad - No one told me that parking was available - but needs to be prebooked and costs £16! - Dirty sauna and steam room, unclean, hair and debris on the floor! This would eventually get to the pool too! :( - Limited parking available, need to pre-book and the parking spaces are tiny. I needed to take all my stuff and the kids out before I put the car in the slot. And getting the car out was such a pain due to the tight spacing. On top of that had trouble getting the car out in the morning as some guy had parked behind mine as well (unauthorised spot!) and no one knew whose car it was so spent half an hour getting the car out, which isnt nice. - No air-condition but fan was available at request (i know it was December but was feeling a bit humid!) - The room was a little snug. Not the greatest pillows too! - Separate toilet with no sink - Small TV on the desk

« Christmas Dinner booking was not as promised so very disappointed in that! »

The superior room was surprisingly small. The toilet is separate from the bath and shower it was located on the other side of the room, i've never come across that before. The fridge needs replacing it's not cold enough when you put your drinks.

Great location, central, however room lacked power sockets (none available had to disconnect TV to charge mobile phones) lack of toiletries in the bathroom as well as towels (stayed in family room and only 2 towels provided & only 1 shampoo and body wash)
