Great receptionist on. Day of arrival Explained everything in detail and clear Lovely rooms and comfortable Bath was leaking - shower head - replaced the next day after raising this with receptionist.

Ph Business - 19/03/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Having tried twice to enter my room unsuccessfully reception gave me an alternative room (not receptions fault) but as it was a busy check in it was an unnecessary issue to re-join checking in queues.

Besides the geographical convenience your colleauges were superb.

Prof. A. L. Business - 25/02/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Very friendly and welcoming staff especially Lorena, Marcello and Gorgo. Unfortunately I wasn’t entirely happy with the room service. In three days room wasn’t cleaned at all. Bathroom sink was blocked and repaired the day after. Carpet needs to be properly cleaned, smell coming form it was really unpleasant. This is not a complaint, I’m just describing my experience. I understand that these days are difficult for everyone.

Dear Mr L., Thank you for your detailed feedback. I am sorry to hear about any inconveniences that you experienced during your stay. We do our best to communicate that Housekeeping works differently due to the current situation and room cleaning is upon request. Please accept my apologies if this wasn't clear enough. In regards to the blocked think, I would like to believe that we did our best to rectify the issue as soon as possible and hopefully it didn't cause you too much discomfort. We are looking into your comments about the carpet and we will take the necessary action. Your feedback about our staff members is much appreciated, and have been shared with the Team during our meeting. I can only hope you will give us another chance in the near future when life brings you back to Reading and we will be able to provide a more enjoyable and hassle free stay.

Deep Baths

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

sahillmsc Business - 01/02/2021 TripAdvisor review

Great hotel stay, especially in the circumstances, with a warm welcome and very friendly service throughout. How refreshing to find a hotel with deep baths, somewhere to unwind and relax comfortably, with the benefit of being able to watch the TV from it too.

Dear Sahillmsc, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your positive feedback. I am glad to read that you had a warm welcome and a relaxing stay. I will certainly pass your message to my team as I know that like me they will be delighted to hear that our work is appreciated and remembered. I hope to see you again in the near future.
