Elmhurst Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Earley
Reviewed 10 October 2017

The location of this hotel was on the South Eastern fringe of Reading with reasonable access to the M4 and I believe reasonably close to Earley Station. The hotel was quite large with a lot of car parking. Although sited on a busy road I did not hear any traffic noise.
The hotel it self was clean and comfortable, although it could do with some refurbishment, but for £65 for a night I thought it was reasonable value for money.
The breakfast was good, no complaints there. The staff were friendly and helpful
I would recommend it.

Shocking, The first thing I did was check that there was a fire escape. The decor was tatty and the electrics, well the smoke alarm was hanging off the ceiling inside a plastic bag. The light over the bed had a black plastic bag stuffed into the end of it covering up loose wires. I made the mistake of risking taking a shower but unfortunately having got the water to an ambient temperature somewhere a toilet was flushed and I was scalded as the water temperature increased dramatically,I thought hotels were inspected for safety this one should definitely not pass. On a positive note the sheets were lovely, crisp white cotton just a shame the carpet wasn't as clean. It was a "Fawlty Towers" hotel.

Although a budget hotel the Elmhurst compares very unfavourably with other similar hotels I have used.
There is a shabby ,unloved atmosphere about the place, with the plumbing and electrics in need of a complete refit.
Breakfast was adequate but the fried egg came with a pool of greasy oil which was inedible.

This hotel is good for value. The room was clean, included an en suite.
The wifi was strong. Breakfast was fine. Location good too.
The street was a little loud due to roadworks, but besides that it was a perfectly adequate stay.
