Stayed here on the spur of the moment due to our train being cancelled. Excellent location being about a 10 minute walk from the railway station. Close to shops and places to eat. Reception staff were great, room was spacious and clean and the bed was massive. Only downside was the noise from the road outside and the bass from...

This place is great, all staff helpful and friendly and within a short elk of the station. Good for shopping and nightlife. The breakfast is really good, evening menu a bit expensive but great quality. Thanks x

I was only there for 1 day and night so I didn't get to experience the hotel in it's entirety. I was traveling for an interview so I wasn't there long. Based off of my first impression, location and the quality of the room, I would stay here again.

Room was perfect, ticked all the boxes. One night stay with every convenience one could wish for including an enormous king size bedroom. Receptionists very helpful when it came to check-in details and offering discount vouchers for local Q park. Would highly recommend.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I am pleased to see that you enjoy our fantastic breakfast, poached eggs are not on our menu so this may be the reason you experienced a small wait whilst the chef cooked them, I do apologise for this but it's great to see you were being looked after.

Everything about this hotel chain is spot on. Lovely environment, tasteful rooms, great reception, bar area and amazing staff. We didn't eat there although I saw a burger come out which looked fantastic. The only downside is cost of breakfast, 2 x adult and 1 x child would have cost £37.... Too pricey ! I would always stay here in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
What makes us a cut above the rest is the way we do things. We have designed the pentahotel Reading to be simple and pentastylish, to provide excellent value for money, create a pentafun and relaxed space with service that is welcoming and personal. All of this not only makes us the newest hotel in Reading, but also your neighbourhood lifestyle hotel. The perfect place to eat, drink and relax is the pentalounge, our „lifestyle lobby“ that multi-functions as a reception, bar, and café, perfect as a neighbourhood hub. No matter what brings you to Reading, there is always time to have a look around. There are the medieval Abbey ruins, historic rivers and of course the majestic Thames Valley countryside to inspire you. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy you could also try out some of the local restaurants or pubs or the fabulous shopping at the Oracle and Broad Street malls. ... more   less
