A wonderful stay at Novotel Reading

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Mohammed A. Families - 16/09/2019 AccorHotels review

I believe Novotel Reading is one of the favorite hotels I stayed during my time in Reading. All the staff is so friendly and gave me a warm welcome upon my arrival. The room and the other facilities such as swimming pool and the gym are extremely clean. The menu of the restaurant is varied and super delicious.

Slow service and dirty rooms

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Adam Business - 11/09/2019 AccorHotels review

Protracted experience checking in as a number of front desk staff were chatting with their friends rather than serving customers. Room layout was extremely disappointing with the toilet in a ‘cupboard’ separate from the bathroom and without a sink. This seems extremely unhygienic at best. Bathroom was dirty with a mould encrusted shower head and very low water pressure.

Comfortable stay in hotel; Extremely helpful in luggage storage.

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Anonymous Families - 10/09/2019 AccorHotels review

We were booked in the hotel for two nights, and the stay was very comfortable. The room was clean and all room amenities worked as desired. At the end of our stay, we had an overnight trip to Scotland planned, and it was extremely helpful that the hotel could store our luggage until we returned.

Superb first time overnight Business guest (Novotel Reading)

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Claire Business - 09/09/2019 AccorHotels review

When I'm travelling for work, especially after a long journey, I'm looking for a hassle-free stay: a quiet comfortable room, walking distance to transport, reliable free wifi, decent food available onsite and somewhere to relax. The staff on reception at the Novotel in Reading couldn't have been more helpful and the French lady on the bar made great suggestions on wine and food. The pool, sauna and steam room were an added bonus in addition to a bath. The Executive rooms are worth the upgrade.

Apart from a bland arrival, during the rest of the stay the staff were welcoming and cordial. Breakfast was of a very high standard. I was also very impressed by the extra quality biscuits that were left in my room. Although the hotel were unable to give me my requested room. I didn’t expect the note and biscuits by way of apology- excellent PR.

Alex Business - 07/09/2019 AccorHotels review

Room was good, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was nice and quick. Dinner menu however was hit and miss. First night was quick and the food was good, although not good value for money. The second night I waited over an hour for my meal to come out and the food was not of the best quality. The main was good but the starter (calamari) was awful. I didn't complain as it was late and I wasn't covering the bill, honestly I have better things to be wasting my time on.

Customer review rating 4.3/5

David F. Business - 07/09/2019 AccorHotels review

Excellent check-in by Marta. And Alina in the bar area did an amazing job of keeping customers charmed and engaged despite dreadfully slow food service -- I got the impression the kitchen was (very) short-staffed. Really nice upgraded room. Pre-cooked breakfast was univiting. At the price chareged, I'd expect hot food to be cooked to order.

Family weekend away

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Jamoamo Families - 02/09/2019 AccorHotels review

Unfortunately, the standard at this hotel has dropped considerably. It would be lucky to receive a 2* rating during our stay. We have stayed on many occasions and have never been disappointed, however, this occasion we were. The cleanliness in communal areas needs tightening up as glasses and plates remained on tables way after the customers left the table. Bar service was slow and resulted in one night not even fulfilling our order as the bartender walked away? Breakfast dishes were not collected, and staff seemed uninterested in our requests for sweetener and sugar for the table. The food to go App came into operation before guests had their breakfast and when we arrived the first morning, all the buffet food was all gone. When asked if they would replenish the buffet we were responded to as though we had no right to ask!! The pool and gym were not cleaned during our stay and used towels remained uncollected on the floor. Very poor visit and we would seriously consider staying elsewhere when we next visit Reading.

Excellent clean and friendly hotel
