Great dinner experience

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

Passport28313779268 TripAdvisor review

We visited the hotel for dinner. The staff (especially Sanda and Alexis) were super super friendly and accomodating, the food was great as well and it was very enjoyable after non-memorable UK fast food. We came for the food and stayed because of the staff. Would highly recommend.

Dear Passport28313779268, Thank you for sharing your positive dinner experience at our hotel. We are delighted to hear that Sandra and Alexis provided exceptional service, and you enjoyed the delicious food. Our team always aims to offer a memorable and enjoyable dining experience. We appreciate your recommendation and look forward to welcoming you back. Kind Regards, Toni Tolentino Front Office Manager Novotel Reading Centre

Really poor infrastructure

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

George M TripAdvisor review

Been here 3 weeks have had to renew the door key card 4 times at the same of the three lifts available you are lucky to have one working. Just got in the only working lift with 5 other people in the pitch dark as the only working lift has no lights. Very very frustrating waiting 10 mins for a lift and being on the 10th floor it's not easy using the emergency stairs

Dear U1733ZEgeorgem, Thank you for sharing your feedback. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you experienced with the door key cards and the elevator during your stay. Your comments have been duly noted, and we will address these issues with our team to ensure a smoother experience for our guests. We appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter. Kind Regards, Toni Tolentino Front Office Manager Novotel Reading Centre

We arrived late in the afternoon and had no reservations for that night. The receptionist proposed immediately a very nice solution to our late request. She was very kind and listened carefully to our needs. She showed us the rooms and we were directly convinced that the proposed solution was in line with our expectations.

Dear Mr. Igor, Thank you for sharing your positive experience at our well-equipped hotel. We are delighted to hear that our team could accommodate your late request efficiently and effectively. Providing excellent service is our top priority, and we are glad that you found the proposed solution to meet your expectations.
