I think kettles should still be in rooms. Coffee machine empty and open to many hands touching. Would be better kettle in room which could be cleaned between occupants

Jeremy Business - 10/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

No soap, no towels, no lighting in the hallway, no bath mats, no air conditioning, no breakfast and no staff that cared! The best part of my stay was when I got upgraded to the George hotel!

Good stay

Dorritt Business - 09/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I really, enjoyed my stay, The night staff was very helpful, he went the extra mile. Also the house keeper was a friendly and very efficient, while she was cleaning my room one day, she noticed that my hand wash was nearly finished so she rushed to get my an exclusive hand and body wash. She made me feel special. So I would like to say a big thank you! Overall I had a good stay.

Very disappointing

Angela M. Couples - 03/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

No bar or dining room facilities open despite restrictions now being lifted. No tea, coffee making facility & not even disposable cups provided to obtain a glass of water from the bathroom tap. In the early hours of the morning an incident occurred in the room next to us resulting in the police being called to remove the gentleman concerned who I believe was also responsible for setting off the fire alarm by smoking in his room which meant we had to vacate the hotel, despite already being in bed. There was no apology for this disruption when checking out the next morning. We may have been reassured by an explanation from the staff as to what was happening & how the situation had been resolved. Instead we were left wondering if we were still safe as a lot of shouting was in a foreign language & we had no idea what was going on. Overall, a very unpleasant experience and we were pleased to leave the hotel the next morning. We have used Ibis hotels in France before & found them to be quite satisfactory for a budget hotel chain. However, we will not be using any in the UK again, this was our first & last stay with your hotel chain.

Good Value & Close to station

With the current situation, no problems with the accommodation. Good value, less than 10 minutes from station. Having stayed in other IBIS hotels this was of the standard that I was expecting..

Hotel staff great, really friendly and very helpful. Rooms dilapidated. Smelled of smoke. Small and beds not most comfy. Shower extremely difficult to get to be warm. Had to run the cold bath tap at the same time to be able to drop the amount of cold water going to shower head. Carpet very tired

K. Business - 29/04/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Check in fine and receptionist lovely. Room (203) okay until I found that TV did not work - aerial lead plug did not fit wall socket, so no signal. Receptionist very helpful and relocated me to another room (201). Room fine. Bathroom disappointing. No plugs in either bath or sink, and the taps dripped constantly. Very tired by this time and not inclined to trouble the receptionist again. So, in summary, lovely staff - neglected amenities. I'm due to stay again next week - so will make a point of asking not be put in 203 or 201 unless I'm advised that the necessary remedial work has been undertaken (and keep my fingers crossed that any other room is up to standard).

A quiet and comfortable room is what anyone traveling for work would expect and that's exactly what you will get here. The staff are courteous and very helpful. The room was small but cosy. The only issue I had was with the toilet, which had an ineffective flush.

Room was shoddy, staff insist I send them a copy of my work contract even though it’s not required, creakiest floor in the world in my room, shower head was half blocked with limescale, chunk missing out the bath, the peephole cover on the door was broken so I had a beam of light shining in all night, I could go on, overall not a great experience.

smell of cannabis in the whole hotel makes it suffocating

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Si Business - 25/03/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I have been staying at Ibis Styles Reading regularly since January 2021 as I work at the Royal Berkshire Hospital. After a hard days work, I come to the hotel for a bit of rest. Although, the rooms are great and the beds are comfortable, I am very disappointed at the horrible smell of cannabis in the whole hotel which makes it very suffocating. In addition, there is a lot of loud noise from door knocking and banging late into the night. My understanding is that the hotel is currently housing Reading council tenants. If this is more profitable, then they should take an executive decision to close the gates for members of the public. It is not acceptable to be exposed to cannabis when the guest is paying for accommodation.

Dalmatian D 22/07/2020 TripAdvisor review

Reception extremely friendly and helpful. Room was a nice size but unable to use air con due Covid and due to it being hot it was not the most comfortable at night. A fan was provided but it had no swing function and we were a family using two beds. Facilities mostly OK although TV remote did not work very well. Bed comfortable and pillows fluffy. We got a breakfast bag which was nice. Location was excellent.

Delightful Stay

All staff I met were friendly, helpful and professional (two young men on reception and the lady supervising breakfast). I had previously stayed at this hotel some time ago in a Solo room. I have mobility issues and that room had been quite difficult so this time went for the Queen Room which was perfect for my needs. Room was warm, clean and cosy, and also quirky (in a good way!) due to the Styles branding. Breakfast was superb with every possible item of a continental breakfast available, from pastries to cheeses, quality meat, multiple types of bread, fresh fruit, yogurt, yogurt drinks, individual mini packets of cereals/ muesli, tea and fruit infusion sachets, coffee etc. Absolutely excellent and the fact that it is included in the room price is incredible. Really could not fault any aspect of my stay

This is an appreciation email for Karl from Reading branch, I came into check in and was expecting normal casual service but this time it was not the same, Karl was just fantastic, he knew what I was looking for, he appreciated me for the business and he was extremely polite & attentive. I had a wonderful time at Reading IBIS hotel and I have recommended this hotel to all of my colleagues, friends and family. Thank you again Karl for such outstanding service.

Dear Guest, Thank you for the great review of our hotel! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again very soon. Kind regards, Madhu
