« ok »

It was ok, décor was dated and needed upgrading. I had to hold the shower in my hand to use it as the hold was broken and the shower wouldn't stay in place and kept falling out.

« Disappointed »

The friendly staff are the best bit of this hotel. Room was difficult to find. No lifts. Cramped single room. Room smelled of curry.

Jon Business - 11/03/2019 AccorHotels certified review
« A comfortable stay »

The staff were all polite, the room was comfortable and I even managed to get a space in the carpark - I didn't go down for breakfast, so I can't comment on that. Checkout was simple and problem free.

« Great location and service »

The stay was very nice and the location was very convenient for the centre. The room was nice and the bed was comfortable.

« Nice, quiet and clean »

I was welcomed and treated with warmth when I arrived. I was impressed about the quirky feel of the hotel and the cleanliness. I really enjoyed it and it was so easy and convenient

« Staff are just about the only redeeming feature of this hotel. »

Pretty poor. Assigned room (301) probably the worst I have been offered in May years of staying in hotels two or three nights a week. Second room given better and only front desk staff were the redeeming feature. Very strong smell of curry pervades the building. Rooms poorly appointed and maintained. Breakfast selection poor and many items run out by 0915. Car park very tight not helped by a delivery driver (Great grub Co) taking up three spaces and refusing to move when asked keeping a guest(me) waiting 15 minutes before he left. I will probably never book with Ibis again.

« Room was depressing »

The room felt generally filthy. Carpet was dirty and the bathroom looked run down.

Nathalie Business - 08/03/2019 AccorHotels certified review

I stayed at Ibis Style Reading Hotel for 10 days and I had nothing to complain about. The staff is very helpful and professional. The room and the bathroom was nice, large and clean. The location was ideal and with quick access to the centre and restaurants. I don't really understand the negative reviews I could read and assume that they are not reliable.

« Terrible value for money »

Expensive and poor quality. Antiquated decor. No lift and lots of stairs. Had to change rooms because first one didn't have a working TV and shower was at a height I couldn't stand under (and I'm short). No parking. The staff on front desk were very helpful though.

« Clean but thats about it, not worth the money »

I paid £109 for room 301, single room so single bed which is okay but not for that price. The room was in an attic type room so very small and one of the corridor doors outside my room slammed every time someone walked through it which shook the cupboard inside the room. The bathroom was nearly the same size of the room but the wall where the power shower was also had a window, so the showerhead couldn’t go higher than my belly button which made showering was a bit challenging. Breakfast was included but options were so limited and again definitely not worth it, and I left only to go have a breakfast somewhere else. Staff were friendly, and the place was clean. I will try and avoid this hotel on my next stay.

« Terrible room - 303 »

Having stayed in the hotel a few times on business, I'm fully aware that it isn't luxury; despite the expensive price.. This occasion was the worst, the hotel room is very cold (with huge & loud radiator heaters provided), has corners of flaking wall paper, bathroom is generally dirty (the extractor fan covered in dust and grime) and the noise from outside (sounds like a factory next door) is enough to keep you awake most of the night... All in all, pretty dreadful

« All good »

Had trouble with tv but was rectified by moving us to another room. No problem after that

« Mrs »

Lovely welcome big room really nice friendly staff, went for breakfast only to find just mainly cereal seemed to have ran out of everything else little disappointing but must have hit the busy period.

« OK stay but noisy room and could be updated »

On arrival into the room I was located close to the kitchen extractor fan shaft which was noisy until approximately 11.30pm. The bed was not made terribly well but was comfortable enough. Obviously this is an old building where you are limited on what improvements you can make but the rooms looked dated and the pipe boxing and earthing cables in the bathroom where unsightly. However, that did not effect my stay considerably. Breakfast was poor. There was limited choices for the continental breakfast - fresh fruit of mandarin and grapefruit not particularly appetising. Would have liked to have seen berries. No offer or information of a cooked breakfast so assumed was not available. As leaving saw another guest who had a cooked breakfast brought out. Need to be clear with guest about what is on offer for breakfast.

« Room was much too hot »

The room was so hot I had to have all the windows open and a fan on in order to sleep at all. (I turned the radiators off on the first day and they were not turned on again.) I did not sleep well all week. It was exhausting. If the rooms are to be that hot there should at least be better ventilation to cool them.

Andy W. Solo - 04/03/2019 AccorHotels certified review
« Good stay »

The stay was good only complaint is 2 things, 1: the room got a bit cold over night. 2: Being served a Gin & Tonic with no ice or slice in a pint glass is not great when paying almost £10.00.

« It was very good. Friendly staff. »

As above. I would have liked to see a water tap perhaps in the reception area to fill water bottles.

Olaf Business - 04/03/2019 AccorHotels certified review
« Fair price-quality with good beds »

Great beds and a good pricing. However, the room was not that well cleaned and especially if you stay longer than one night, the room does not get properly cleaned on the days in between. Breakfast is fine, but nothing special. Other than that, this hotel has everything you need for a pleasant stay.

« Perfect »

Perfect location, clean and cosy room

Katie G. Business - 03/03/2019 AccorHotels certified review
« Very, very basic. Poor Experience. »

I stayed in the Ibis for 5-nights. Firstly, the staff were very friendly and accommodating so there is a plus! However, the room was small, extremely basic, noisy, dirty and it smelt of curry (no joke). The room made me feel itchy and it wasn't comforting at all. The TV signal was intermittent and the remote was full of dirt and grime. I struggled to get hot water in the morning, I guess due to the demand. The walls were exceptionally thin and I woke up around 3 or 4 times a night. The room and whole hotel smelt of curry due to the restaurant downstairs. It made my clothes smell too. The hotel breakfast was actually okay but again basic. Overall, I was very dissatisfied and I will not be staying in an IBIS Styles again.
