Arriving in Reading very late at night, this hotel was only a couple of minutes' walk from the station. Had already checked in online, so key was ready for me - very efficient. Had requested a quiet room on an upper floor away from the lifts and that is exactly what I got. Breakfast was excellent - very good range and good quality. Would have like fried egg, however only scrambled is available with the cooked breakfast. Hotel is expensive for midweek stays, but that is probably due to the number of people staying on business trips.

Our shower spray would not stay in the holder, so had to shower holding in one hand whilst trying to wash hair one handed, not ideal!! The new lady in reception was left alone, and coudl not take payments, she didn't know how to use the coffee machine and I got a cold coffee milkshake as she didn't heat the milk, my husband had to go around the bar toshow her what he wanted to drink as she didn't understand, I think someone else shoud lhave beenon reception during her training period!! We woudl stay again as we regulary stay in reading and overall this is a good value for money hotel, just on this occasion it was let down by a few things.

Excellent location in Reading City Centre. Quick check-in and check-out. Refurbished rooms, very comfortable beds and good amenities. Excellent breakfast. Bar 24/7 very welcome for late arrivals. Friendly and helpful staff

Cannot believe that the hotel has only have one working lift and it had been like that now for 3 weeks - very long waits to go up to your room and when you leave your room - should be compensating customers for inconvenience caused. Staff serving Breakfast in Restaurant are friendly and hospitable.

I stayed here for 2 nights, and the hotel was very modern yet relaxed and not too invasive. Check in was hassle free and the room was clean, modern and good standard considering the price I paid was around £50 a night. You won't find that in Travelodge or somewhere even like Premier Inn. I preferred this hotel to anywhere else in Reading I've stayed and I also got breakfast included in the price for 2 guests! The breakfast was fantastic and open until 12pm, which was really handy as I am not an early bird. Everything about this hotel was perfect and I will certainly book here again when I next come to Reading next year. Great hotel, thank you!

Hotel itself is fine. Clean, comfortable and a great location - but do not use the fast check out option - they pre-approve your card for double the room value, which then takes 5+ days to fall off the authorisations on your bank account - so you may not be able to access YOUR funds during this time. Very poor

Stayed 2 nights and nothing to complain about. Front desk very helpful with accurate information about the town. Breakfast is ample and fresh, and staff very friendly. They will hold luggage for you when you check out.

I stayed here for work as my usual hotel was full. In summary: 13 floors and only 1 lift working. Bathrooms are claustrophobic. Had to pay separately for breakfast, room and parking which was frustrating.

comfy bed, decent brekkie .. I asked for a quiet room and got one. Friendly reception staff. Good value and good position in Reading for lots of shops and restaurants. Good air conditioning, as the weather was 26 degrees. 2 min walk from train station (with the direct quick coach to Heathrow as well). Ive stayed in 4 Ibis' in the UK and they've all been good.

I frequently stay at the hotel, however at the end of this particular week I asked if I could leave some toiletries etc as myself and my wife were going to Paris to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary and would be back the following Monday. When we arrived back at the hotel after a great weekend we were surprised to find that in our room there was an Anniversary card, a bottle of Prosecco and 2 large slices of amazing chocolate cake which were beautifully decorated. My wife was quite emotional to see this and it just made a perfect weekend even better. As I said I stay regularly at this hotel as the staff are so friendly and helpful. People say customer service is declining, but the above review just shows that some companies do still have staff who care about their customers . Thanks you very much IBIS Reading

We always stay at the Ibis when visiting family and friends in Reading. Its bright and cheerful, clean, neat and tidy and has great staff, who are professional, friendly and thoughtful. The rooms are clean and very well presented and have all that you may need. The breakfasts are great too, catering for everyone. Good coffee too - always a bonus.

Still no recycling in hotel - shocking for nowadays. Also we had to leave early our last morning and pre arranged a veggie breakfast for two the day before - we were greeted to a breakfast with meat for 1, no spoon, no milk, no clean hot water for tea. It was really disappointing. Hotel in good location and staff mainly good. Room basic.

Good things: Clean, comfortable, just what I needed. Air con and shower facilities were excellent. Nice bar area which was nice to use, lots of flexibility for breakfast re. time and selection. Stuff i found a bit annoying: Had to swipe key card to use the lift, multi storey car park a short walk from hotel - multiple trips needed. Didn't bother me but: the street outside is noisy

Very nice hotel and staff, and room was very nice. Only stayed for one night, so cannot make any real issue out of it any problems face. The only main problem I encountered was the key lock on my door was faulty or there was a particular knack to getting the swipe card to work, tried many recoded swipe cards from the lobby, and was sheer luck I got back into the room after the 3rd recoded card, after that I didn't dare leave the room in the evening in case I couldn't get back into my room again - it was late on a Sunday I doubt there would have been any engineer to fix it/force the door open. Minor issue as was only staying one night, had it been longer, could have been a more serious issue (business trip for example?). Only other issue - but probably unique to myself, and for other people could be perfectly fine, was I found the bed mattress way too hard for myself. One plus though and I don't think Ibis in Reading highlight it as well as they should, is that the bedrooms DON'T face the main road, so they are quite silent from road noise (at least in the evenings). Overall nice stay, friendly staff.. not quite sure on the lack of a organized check in desk (the hotel uses an informal greeting system), as can quite disorganized if multiple parties arrive at the same time. Also wifi broadband was surprisingly good, fast, even via a VPN (which is allowed, ports aren't blocked). WOULD STAY AGAIN, AND HAVE ALREADY RECOMMENDED TO MY CLIENT AS A PLACE TO STAY IN READING. Need to do something about the room keylocks though, or of course I could just have been unlucky on the day.

A comfortable hotel in a central location where I've stayed previously. The normal room rates are expensive, the offers reasonable. However £2 for a small bottle of water is the epitome of extortion. Accor really needs to do something about this "rip-off".

Easy to book. Clean and friendly. Good location. The hotel was located very centrally in Reading. This meant there was very easy access to all local facilities and transport. I would recommend a stay in this hotel.

Good value for money at this central hotel in Reading; just 2 mins from the train station and the same for the Oracle shopping centre. Rooms on the upper floors are quieter with a good bar and restaurant on the 1st floor. Quick check-in and out at reception. One of the best breakfasts I have experienced.

The cups were left not cleaned on the table, led one to doubt whether room was cleaned after all. The shower was very poor, water was only dripping out. Previously I chose the hotel for its reasonably powerful shower even though I know the hotel is a basic one. Very disappointed this round. Staff failed to find my booking and simply created a new one with another amount requested.

Great hotel, good room, and having good food just outside was brilliant, the only problem me and my girlfriend had was that the room got hot, which impacted our sleep. On a whole though the room was good and we enjoyed our stay.
