All in all this was a rather pleasant stay, the hotel looks nice, the rooms are clean with comfortable beds and adjustable heating and the food in the restaurant was really delicious, just what i needed after a three hour journey. I managed to get a decent nights sleep and the breakfast the next morning was good to and set me up for the day. Now for the bad- upon arrival the gentleman on reception was very abrupt, rude and extremely unhelpful. I had arrived from out of town on a business trip... Read more

Visited the Reading Lake Hotel on 17/18 of November 2017. After reading other reviews we were a bit anxious, on arrival we entered the foyer and felt really comfortable. The staff couldn‚??t have been nicer, we went down to the bar where the staff were more than accommodating. As we had nothing to eat before we left, we decided to eat in the restaurant, The food was freshly prepared and was very well presented and really nice. Again the staff were really friendly and spoke with us througho... Read more

There is no way this Hotel is 4*. I would rate it 2* at best. The ambiance is at best described as creepy. As others have mentioned this is a fire damaged hotel that hasn‚??t been updated from the 1970‚??s / 1980‚??s. With common areas out of service. I was booked in for 4 nights with work but bailed after 1 night due to lack of WiFi and a menu that was also stuck in the 80‚??s that seriously neglecting vegetarians... I appeared to be the only resident which was unnerving. Room was large an... Read more

I am currently enjoying a distinct lack of comfort at the most bizarre establishment I have ever encountered. I am writing this review at 5 o‚??clock in the morning as I cannot sleep because despite the loud ticking and struggling noises coming from an ancient but apparently ineffective storage heater in the corner of my room, the icicles on the end of my nose woke me up. After a change in my diary I found myself in the position of being able to accompany some of my work team to an event in R... Read more

I'm actually surprised at the poor reviews as I stayed at this hotel in September and my boyfriend and I were absolutely chuffed! £50 off late rooms and we couldn't believe we actually had view of the whole lake. Staff were lovely also - we ordered a takeaway to the hotel and they were very friendly about giving cutlery and wine glasses. I think people are quick to judge because the building has had a fire and that side is still run down. However if people were to on-look this is something that... Read more

Stayed here with my girlfriend for one night thank goodness it was no more the place is rundown dirty the staff are rude, it's overpriced, lovely settings except when you stand on the balcony and look at the buildings which are being dismantled or have previously burnt down. This could be a lovely place but clearly the people running it are clueless. It is so unlike the website that shows pictures that are not up-to-date and they are definitely been touched up. Don't bother, just don't! I do st... Read more

I am reliably informed that in years gone by, this was ‚??the‚?? hotel to go to. If you went to a Christmas party at the Reading Lake Hotel then you were in for a good time. Sadly, time has been cruel on this hotel. It is big, grand and in a perfect ideallic lake location.......but over a year ago half the hotel burnt down and they have tried their best to keep the rest going on what I can only assume quite a tight budget! The hotel itself could be lovely but a large amount of investment is requ... Read more

My friend and I booked 2 separate double rooms for single occupancy. Being two ladies we wanted rooms next to each other or at least on the same floor. Firstly we were offered a room each, on separate floors. Then given 2 rooms next to each other on first floor. Lift not working. My room was disgusting. Water in sink, and a used towel and half used toothpaste tube left in bathroom. Beds had been made, but looked like someone had led down on them afterwards. See pics. My friends room stunk of fag...

This place is disgusting. From dirty bed sheets to hair in bath. Dirty shower curtains and sink. Horrible smell also. Hotel manager not even bothered. Didn't end up staying there as this place is just shocking. Would avoid this place at all costs
