  • I felt like I was roughing it there


    Gentleman on the phone/reception seemed to be nice enough and was approachable and helpful enough. Good service from him.. :-)

    The hotel was a bit of a walk from the centre about 10 mins. Wasn't an enjoyable walk as where the hotel is it seems a bit ghetto like. felt very vulnerable walking back from Reading town centre in the dark. Maybe should have got a taxi..

    When I got into the bed it felt really itchy and horrible.

    The room was clean on first appearance I paid for a double but was lucky and got given a tripple room. Just aswell as the double bed in the room was majorly un-comfortable and had stains on... So stayed in the single bed. Above the single bed was lampshades that had dust on and cobwebs. Nice!

    I would STRONGLY advise going room only if you have got the option to do that.. Or try and get the price down by saying you don't want any food what so ever..

    Went down for breakfast was really, really hungry, absolutely rubbish selection of cereal. Oriental lady didn't understand a word of English or so it would seem. I asked for a Vegetarian cooked breakfast with Fried bread and she produced JUST scrambled egg by its self on a plate and some toast! Not good at all.

    I moved the egg around on the plate to make it looked like I attempted to eat some but it looked awful and didnt even bother with the toast.

    Unique Quality: they have one table outside which u can sit on its in a garden which looks quite nice to be fair

    At Least The Wi-Fi Works!!


    Reading hotels can be a bit busy during the week with predominantly business trade and so the better hotels can up their midweek rates leaving places like The Crescent to service the lower end of the market - i.e. cheapskates like me!!

    For an overnight stay this little hotel is fine, bed was comfortable, room was clean if a little pokey, reception friendly and helpful and the free Wi-Fi worked. A little further from the railway station than the blurb suggests but still easily walkable if not too overladen with luggage.

    This will never be my 1st choice here in Reading but if needs must I would stay here again.

    Directions: Heading out of town towards the football ground, Coley Ave is to the left where the Registry Office is.
