The staff on the whole...
Liked: the bed was comfortable and the room a good size plenty of hot water to shower with. Most of the staff were amazing and made up for the short coming of the room Breakfast on 2 out of 3 days was excellent and great value Saturday was short of a few things including cups and glasses fruit juice yogurt
Disliked: The building was a bit tired and in need of an update Room carpet needs a clean

A good value one night...
Liked: The room was spotlessly clean and the water pressure was good. The free breakfast was cooked fresh to order and was very tasty. The bar area was fantastically decked out.
Disliked: The room was very hot and the walls were quite thin, so you could hear other guests moving around their accomodation.

Comfortable and Value for Money
Liked: A decent looking pub that is about 10 mins from Reading Station. The guy who was running the place was excellent. Despite clearly being understaffed, he managed to get everyone served at Breakfast and was very accommodating letting drop my bags off early, ensuring they were taken to my room before I arrived.

Great central place to stay.
Liked: Very friendly helpful staff. We had a great 4 poster room which was spacious and airy. Breakfast had the usual basics, but very nice and well cooked. Good quality sausage which always divides a good breakfast from a bad one.
Disliked: Our bath was large but the shower over ran off the bath mixer taps. This meant no thermostat and resulted in the water temp changing regularly whilst in the shower! The hotel is having a full refurbishment very soon under new owners, so this should be rectified.

Liked: Rather than being a hotel, this is a pub with rooms. Nothing wrong with that and often you get more of a personalised service. The bar area was nice and I didn?t feel awkward going in there alone after my night out. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My room was very small with one single bed and was really in need of modernising. It was clean and adequate. However, when I stayed it was very hot and the room was incredibly stuffy. There was no air conditioning and just one noisy, inefficient fan. I didn?t sleep much that night and breakfast wasn?t available until 8am so I just went home. Not the best stay I?ve ever had, but not the worst either.
Disliked: The hot and stuffy bedroom.
