Nice hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 25, 2007

I used this hotel on a business trip and I was impressed by it's location. It is easily accessible and within stumbling distance of Reading's pub and clubs. It is a little on the pricey side, but what do you expect when you stay right in the centre of Reading! The only down side to this hotel is the noise from the major IDR which practically runs underneath the hotel. One side of the hotel is better than the other, but you can still hear the noise of the cars. Also, getting to your car can be a bit of a pain! As you have to walk outside of the hotel to the nearest MSCP and when you are dragging your luggage in the rain, it is not ideal!

Plush hotel in a great location for town centre

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

I've stayed there for a few nights for my mum's 60th birthday and my 21st birthday. Its quite expensive but its pretty posh. You even get toberlone's at reception. What more could u want?!? There is an AMAZING indoor swimming pool which is heated to the point of it actually being warm. Its like a giant bath! And the jacuzzi and gym are really good too. The breakfast is really expensive (about 16 pounds a head) but it's bloody tasty!

Directions: Its next to the Broad Street Mall

Best Hotel for the Town Centre

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

I have a colleague in the States who always stays in this hotel when he comes over. He swears it is the best hotel for being in the middle of Reading and for access to the shops. It is also easy stumbling distance from most of the pubs and clubs (of which thre are many) in the centre of Reading.

The hotel is quite well appointed, and the rooms are nice, the sort of room you would expect from this category of hotel. If you get a room near the top, the views can be quite good.

This hotel also has a lot of conference type facilities and rooms for booking Annual Dinners etc. It has the impersonal touch of most big hotels.

Note:- This hotel used to be the Ramada, and changed its name to the Renaissance about 2 years ago.

Directions: Slightly down the Road from the Virgin Megastore and the Argos Megastore. If you go over the IDR (Inner Distribution Road), you have gone too far.
