Stay there for 3 nights, the local looks a bit abandon/running down but the bed is still comfortable to sleep. Walking distance to Reading uni and a supermarket on the same street. breakfast in included and in large variety, great.

The Elmhurst is convenient for my business appointments, but you wouldn't come for a holiday. It is typically a contractors' overnight stay place. The staff are pleasant enough and the rooms clean and functional. There is ample car parking and the hotel does offer evening meals, but only until 8:00pm. There is a nearby pub which offers good food, and...

Customer service was shocking, never met staff so rude. The quality of the rooms was appalling. They were dirty, old fashioned and smelt horrible. Never again I regret my decision in choosing this hotel

Stayed here instead of camping at the festival, booked it last minute so can't complain about where we ended up. Didn't spend any time other than the 8 hours after the festival so it was ok. The staff were quite helpful letting us leave our stuff so we could head out to the festival rather than waiting for 2pm checkin...

I didn't entertain staying in this "hotel" (I personally think the middle "s" fell off the "hostel" sign). The rooms stunk of damp with broken floorboards under the carpet, stained floors, mouldy walls and ceilings and dirty, leaky fixtures. We promptly handed the keys back and demanded that the office were refunded, which the reception clerk did without question, in...

We booked this place online. Pulled up outside and it was horrid!! Not one car in the car park (which speaks volumes!!). We didn't even get out of the car!! Drove away and found somewhere else. Was charged £55 fee for 'cancellation' but we weren't going to stay there - no way!!!

Poor reception when I arrived. Room smelt and very dated. Breakfast was not fresh and felt very rushed. One of the hotel staff unlocked my room and came in while I was still in here. Cheap so get what you pay for I suppose. I won't be coming back. Not nice.
