Marion B. Business - 24/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Unfortunately I did not find the key that easy to use with the lift or the door and had to use the stairs. I had to try multiple times to open the door with the key card. At 3 am someone started banging very loudly on my door which was frightening. I shouted at them to stop but they did not answer and carried on banging. They banged and banged several times in in end I shouted at them to go away and that I was going to call reception. My room number was 306. I can only assume that it was somebody mistaking my door for theirs but you would have thought that they would have got the message when they realised it was not their room but they kept on banging. Perhaps you need to review your security.

Our family stayed in Novotel Reading UK last Feb14-15, 2020. We enjoyed our stay in the hotel. The staffs are very accommodating especially with our request for a baby cot and electric fan in the room. They assisted us very well. The room is clean and cozy. The breakfast is really good. Overall, it was indeed a good stay! Thank you!

Not a 4-star hotel

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Mike Couples - 20/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Fairly disappointing. The room was not in particularly good condition; a badly repaired hole in the ceiling, a vile sticky stain on the carpet, the sofa provided was broken, although we turned the thermostat down the room stayed very hot, the toilet was seperate to the bathroom and was smaller then most aeroplane toilets so a larger person would struggle to get in and shut the door! The bed was very comfortable but lots of noise meant we didn't sleep well. Another very disappointing aspect was the absolutely awful breakfast; the continental side was extensive and very good but considering the cost was for the whole buffet I was surprised to find the cooked breakfast was very bad indeed. All in all not worth the overall price hence not a 4-star hotel.

so noisy
