As a business traveller a convenient and comfortable place to stay. The only thing that lets it down is the bathroom which, although obviously refurbished, needs thoroughly cleaning. Whichever room I've been in the bath sealant has needed cleaning, and sometimes the glasses are also not as clean as they could be.

Great couple of nights sleep.

Pros: the staff were really helpful, good sized, clean rooms.
Cons: If I had to be picky the corridors had a slight stale smell as if the carpets had been there during the days of smoking indoors.
Location: 40 mins on the bus to reading town centre, stop right outside pub. Train stations nearby. If your a fan of old country pubs this area is for you.
stayed here for the weekend whilst visiting reading on the sunday. Staff were very helpful (put us in the direction of another couple travelling to reading festival to potentially share a taxi with after we asked best routes into reading) & the late check in was no problem at all. Comfy and amazingly huge bed! overall a really nice experience. Beautiful old pub to have a pint in too =)

Needs some TLC

Hotel needs some work. Leaky tap and broken lights. No socket near bed to charge phone.
