« Loud and uncomfortable »

Very loud room from outside street level noise. U comfortable bed and cold room. TV had no channels available.

« another business trip »

Have stayed here a few times now. good location, good rooms, friendly staff only issue is the car park is limited, but at least there is one!

« Excellent hotel right in the centre of town »

The location of this hotel is fabulous - right in the middle of the shops, close to restaurants and the railway station. The price was reasonable and the ‘continental’ breakfast had a massive choice. Soya milk was also available! Very happy with our one night stay!

« Terrible stay in a broom cupboard »

My room was a broom cupboard under the stairs converted into a small bedroom, no working radiator so there was a small oil radiator. Shower cubicle was shocking, plastic space with mould on it. Location only positive, central to Reading. Continental breakfast very average. I will not recommend this and shall never book to stay at Ibis!

« Clean cheap and central »

Staff were great. Rooms were clean. Breakfast was simple but tasty.

« Bad administration but great staff and location. »

I was extremely disappointed when I arrived to be told my payment (which I had a response via email and printed off confirming had been taken from my bank account ) in November - 2.5 months prior to my visit had actually not been processed. I was then embarrassed as I do not have online banking so had to stand at reception with my 2 friends - who I was treating to a girly night away for our birthdays - for 10 minutes trying to get hold of my bank via telephone. It was confirmed no money had been taken from my bank account, despite having received an email confirmation and paperwork to state otherwise. I then had to pay out for a room I already thought I'd paid for. Thankfully I had enough money in my account to pay for the room or we'd have been stranded in Reading with nowhere to stay. To say I was disappointed with the administration of our booking was an understatement. However, we were pleased with polite staff on reception, a big room and great location. We did go for breakfast the following morning and was greeted by a lady who couldn't even raise a smile. Such a shame we had such an embarrassing start to our break but I would certainly return to the hotel for the positives mentioned.

Staff mainly offhand

« Mediocre and not worth the price »

The location of the room and access to it is poor. The signage to reach the room on the third floor is virtually non-existent. The receptionist's welcome was not particularly warm. The shower failed to deliver hot water. The TV was broken. The internet didn't work.

« Average »

Helpful and efficient staff. Room not that comfortable and not the best value for money.

« Business Trip »

i received a warm welcome and the reception area was bright and clean I was disappointed with my room having booked this hotel after looking at the rooms shown on the website. The bed was uncomfortable, the TV was poor quality and signal wasn't very good at all. as i was only there one night i didn't complain, I wouldn't have wanted to stay more than one night. I must say the room was clean, however, given its over an indian restuarant there is a stale curry smell in the room I couldn't see anywhere to adjust the heating either cooler or warmer

« Not as perfect as previously. »

Check in was great, but first room had a dirty bathroom. 2nd room was fine, but to my horror I realised in the morning that the shower was not working. There were several issues with it, which I would be happy to describe to a real person. Breakfast was good, but breakfast staff sour faced. Not what I am used to from your hotel. There was nobody at the desk for check out, so I didn't have to opportunity to complain in person. Very disappointing stay this time!

« Basic but clean »

I was only staying one night, if I was staying longer I would unfortunately chose somewhere else, I feel that the hotel is in need of a modern refresh in the rooms and bathrooms, the ground floor and from outside looks very wlecoming. The hotel It is in a great location for the office and the staff were all very helpful and friendly but I did feel like I was in student accommodation, this was my first stay here and potentially my last im sad to say.

« Pleasant and good value. »

Was working long hours so did not get to stay long in the room but it was clean and tidy. Good value for the money paid.

Amruth Business - 21/01/2019 AccorHotels certified review
« Not happy with the way i was treated »

Dirty tap water for 3 days, No lift in the hotel, was made to wait for 2.5 hours though room was vacant stating rooms are full which was not true, finally one good receptionist changed the room for me on the 4th day. I emailed Accor team but no response. Service could have been much better.

Staff very helpful prior & during stay.

« Room fine other than bathroom, receptionist very nice, breakfast was decent. »

Bathroom was dirty (I was moved to another room but that was only marginally better so I did not ask again as I expect that is just the standard) and shower did not work on my last morning there (cord was pulled). The toilet cistern made a constant dripping noise. The receptionist was very nice and moved me right away when I advised that the bathroom was dirty but as I said above it does just seem to be the standard rather than what I first thought and a one off. Breakfast was decent.

« Not impressed »

Whilst the downstairs Reception/Bar/Breakfast areas were nice, my room (214) was at the top of the stairs and I heard nothing but squeaky floorboards and people using the stairs. Also in the morning when I ran the hot tap, very yellow water cane out with lumps of grit The shower was very low on the bracket making it hard to shower properly - the room looked tired too and was in need of a re-decorate. (The staff were great btw!) Probably the worst hotel stay experience I have ever had I am afraid to say

Mrs B. Business - 17/01/2019 AccorHotels certified review
« Disappointing »

Room was very tired, big crack in the bathroom sink, shower head kept creeping down the pole, room very noisy from kitchen below and road noise.

Mary H. Business - 14/01/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Lovely and clean
