Modern & clean hotel in the heart of Reading. Friendly helpful staff from checking in to the bar staff & the chap who made the kids bed up! Our executive room was comfortable and spacious. Great facilities, the kids enjoyed the swimming pool. Breakfast was delicious and there were lots of choices.

We stayed in an executive room and were treated respectfully, the staff at Novotel were always ready to help and even had a Whatsapp number that we were able to text throughout the 24 hours, the pool is nice and quiet, not too busy which was nice and relaxing. However the toilet did block but was fixed promptly at 9am when maintenance start work, thank you.

I didn’t like the room I stayed on the fourth floor right at the end by the fire exit. Room was very noisy and the carpet was so stained very dirty carpet.

Gabor K. Business - 08/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Expected much more. Let's start with the positive : - staff is good, ready to help - well in the city center - breakfast is good Negative : - very noisy (at least the rooms facing the road). Every early morning a cleaning machine goes up and down a few times on the road (between 5 and 6 I believe). A construction work was also ongoing on the opposite side of the road from early morning until late evening using pneumatic hammers, etc. - toilet is extremely small. If you go in, you almost need acrobatic skills to close the door - guests: an very drunk person came into a hotel with a (most probably homeless) partner and behaved - let me say - not on the correct way. Staff started to handle the situation when the second guest started to complain. - some area need maintenance

Acceptable

Mill Business - 07/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The first night I stayed was fantastic. Great room, great staff at reception and lovely fitness area. The 2nd night was quite the opposite. I had people check-in staying opposite my room, above and next door who were loud and noisy from the early evening up until around 2300 and then around 02… in the morning. Made sleep and rest incredibly difficult as I had a long drive the following morning. I suffer from anxiety so didn't want to inform reception incase the people around me realised it was me. I don't know why they were all allocated around my room.

Anonymous Business - 07/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Adequate lodging, breakfast buffet is fine, but gets old after a few days of the same thing over and over, and the absolute worst part of the experience was the pumped in over-fumigated perfume smells that permeate the entire building -- why?

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Clair Business - 06/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Mainly good - some issues with electrics, is plug and hairdryer not working, but overall good.

Perfect location for shopping and base for sightseeing

Pat Business - 31/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Overall my stay was good and the site has been very nice to me, doing their best to take into account my requests. The only negative aspect that had a negative impact for me is the noise of the lifts; Even in room far away from them i could hear them, they are very loud, so although the rooms were very quiet and nice, when the lifts were working it was disturbing my sleep.
