The standards are very high all around, from the decor to the restaurant and the approachable and welcoming attitude of the staff. A few minor nagging details that could be improved on is the connectivity from pc to tv in the rooms (which just didn't work at all), as well as the wifi being on the slow side, and the draft beer at the bar was a bit warm and not very lively. Apart from that, excellent hotel, would stay again.

Overall my satisfaction with my experience at the Penta Hotel Reading was very good. The staff were friendly and helpful when needed. The buffet breakfast was outstanding with plenty of choice to suit all tastes and dietary needs. My room on the first floor was comfortable and well appointed. On my first night the curtains would not close properly so the street lighting illuminated my room. However, the staff quickly remedied this the next day and no more street lighting intrusion was experience... Read more

Cool hotel....more like a nightclub or trendy bar. I have stayed there a couple of times now and other than a slow checkout process, the staff have all been truly excellent. Helpful, friendly and sincere. They all look like cool baristas! The food is simple but fine, the rooms are pretty good and the gym is acceptable. Definitely worth looking at vs the other mainstream brands.

Very helpful staff in particular Patricia, Anpeluke, Kristin, Mer and Adam I hope that I have spelled their names correctly. The accommodation was fantastic and I can not fault it at all. The Hotel food was a very good quality , However, overpriced as a result, I ended up eating out at (as high a quality food) in the local restaurants. In all I stayed in the hotel for around 11 weeks.

Kinda like walking into a night club to start off with, once checkin was sorted out we made it to our room. Room was ok. However, the window wouldn't shut so I had very poor sleep, the noise from the road was constant, probably wouldn't be a issue if the Window actually shutter properly. Also the shower was broken, I told the cleaner however, I don't think she really cared

I have stayed several times at this hotel. I have to say the Staff are great, helpful, friendly and efficient. Food is off a good standard. My only issue is with the rooms, I find them clean and tidy but very noisy to a point where I find it difficult to sleep at times. I have heard there are some quieter rooms, but have yet to find one!

I have just had a very good night at this hotel. From the outside, it's not very beautiful. I wouldn't quite call it 'brutalist' modern hotel architecture, but it's somewhere between tacky, clunky and kitsch. The lobby is large and rather cavernous, depressing in a new-wave-hotel kind of way. The hotel is situated at the rough end of the city centre, with a slot machine entertainment centre, bars and cheap cafes nearby. At 1600 on a Saturday afternoon, when I arrived and walked from the stati... Read more

Nice hotel in city center, next to the pedestrian zone with shops. Hotel stuff is friendly but the breakfast was average. Bit noisy room due to the A325 route. Hotel is close to Oracle shopping center with shops and restaurants. Good one is Bella Italia - pasta for 10GBP.

Could not get any sleep in our room 429 as the seal was broken on the window and our room was over looking the motorway. The noise continued all night long and we were not offered an alternative room. The curtains did not fit window so sun also beaming through in the early hours of the morning. They also messed up our booking and overcharged us. The car parking was not free and not on site. Would not stay again.

I stayed at this property for about a three weeks in April 2016. Location: The hotel is located in the centre of Reading, close to shopping centres, bars and restaurants. Rooms: The rooms are modern, clean & tidy and comfortable. The one gripe which I had, was that the AC did not do much and the rooms (all three which I stayed at in 3 weeks) all were very hot. Also, Wifi is free at this property, one thing some hotels like to charge for. Public Areas: The hotel has a nice size gym for a ho... Read more

Worst hotel ever, the staff are rude and unhelpful. The don't really care about customer services at all. Food ok but not worth the month. It is a very noisy hotel due to the dual carriageway at the side. I would advice a different hotel unless you can put up with foreign staff who have no manners or understanding for a group of special athletes.

Stay regularly with work and it's a decent place. I would die at the rack rate though as it's certainly not worth the nightly rate given what you can pick up on lastminute.com Hotel is clean, crisp and rooms are nice. Breakfast is actually very good with good choice and options for all tastes and health levels Beware the local area as I would say it's not situated in the nicest part of Reading

Hotel looks dated on the outside but inside everything is nice and modern. We stayed in standard room which was fine although a little noisy as there is a 24/7 main road outside. We booked a double bed and were a bit disappointed to find the bed was two large singles together, not a massive issue but when we realised there were two separate duvets also we were disappointed. Saying that the bed/s were very comfortable and made for a great nights sleep. Overall the hotel was fine for the price ran... Read more

My flight from the States got in to Heathrow at 6 a.m., so needless to say, I got to the hotel really early. I was afraid that I could not get an early check-in, but a guardian angel by the name of Amber was working the front desk. She did her magic, and got me a room well before the hotel's official check-in time. Amber's been a great resource in the couple of days I've already been here, and she's given me valuable tips on hotel services, as well as good information on the area around the h... Read more

Great hotel, wonderful atmosphere and great decor, especially in the reception/bar area.

I wasn't exactly satisfied with my stay at this hotel. First of all, please consider switching your pillows to more fluffy and solid ones as I had terrible sleep throughout my stay due to the 'sunken' pillows. Additionally, please consider switching to longer curtains which are more opaque as the sunrays can still be seen during early hours in the morning at 4-5am, thus disrupting my sleep. Additionally, it is not easy switching on the TV as it doesn't turn on automatically after one-click on th... Read more

Brilliant, modern hotel with a lovely manager and team. Lovely, comfy reception area and bar. The rooms were a good size and were very clean. My only negative (and it applies to all modern hotels), there's never a mirror over the dressing table so there's really nowhere to plug in hair straighteners to see what you're doing.

Very relaxed ambience from the minute you walk in (which I particularly needed as I'd had a very long and tiring day.) Love, love, love the décor and the staff are both friendly and professional. Nothing was too much trouble. The open plan bar, reception and dining area are particularly impressive. Very chic. Being honest, the exterior does not do you justice - although I soon forgot about that once inside. Excellent!

Communal areas on the ground floor were good and the staff were excellent - friendly, welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. The room was a good size and didn't feel cramped. The rest of building did seem tired though, with the occasional ceiling panel missing in the corridor, small areas of flaking paint and wallpaper in the room and the toilet needed written notice before it would think about flushing properly. Despite the sense that the place was a bit worn out, I would go back because t... Read more

Overall, the hotel has a great vibe--nice decor, cool music and lighting in the lounge/bar/reception area, nice modern appointments in the rooms, nice breakfast offerings--but there are few details that made my stay unnecessarily unpleasant: 1. Wifi - The free wifi is TERRIBLE - only 0.2 MBPS--a throwback to the days of dial-up. Having to pay extra for reasonable speeds is annoying, and feels like I'm being nickeled and dimed.

This was a short 2 night break. The location is excellent for the city centre without being right in the hustle and bustle of Reading. Friendly staff, there if you need them whilst leaving you to yourselves. A pleasant overall stay and the smoking room was a very welcome option to save those trips in and the building! Would be happy to stay again, and they subsidise the parking at the Q-Park just a few minutes walk away. A recommended stay :)
