This is a lovely hotel but is badly let down by the attitude of the staff Don't rely on card machine to work as i believe their is major problems with it Paid cash but attitude from staff was disgusting although they knew there was a problem Use hotel for business regularly

The reservation was made by someone else on behalf of me. I drove 7 hours from Edinburgh, and when at the reception desk was told that my reservation was booked for 3 days later. I was not happy that the person who made the reservation got it wrong, but what was extremely dissatisfying was how Ibis handled my circumstance. I only needed a room for 1-night and the Ibis individual on hand was so unhelpful and unwilling to look into option of carrying over the reservation. I was simply told "there's no rooms left"....Considering I saw a couple checking out just prior. So after driving 7 hours, I had to drive around Reading and surrounding areas looking for another hotel. On top of it, I tried to cancel the booking as it was a few days out and I could not even get a refund! Very VERY unhappy at how Ibis has handled this. I will NOT be using ibis again, if this is the type of individuals you employ at the front desk.

This hotel had some very poor reviews in the past but I must say that since Tomasz Michalak had taken over the management the reviews have improved greatly and I must say our room was spacious and very clean. The breakfast was very good and plenty of it available, but note as the hotel points out it is not a full English. The parking was fine and there were plenty of spaces. The area is a bit rough , reminds me of the east end of London but I would be wiling to walk along it after dark. All in all much better than expected and good value, well done Tomasz. Oh one comment ...the air conditioning in restauraunt kept belting out warm air at breakfast ...you may want to check this out.

I've been here twice on business. The first time I had a lovely spacious twin room on the second floor. The second time I had a horrid, pokey, squished room on the third floor. Both times I was there for three days and would refuse a room on the top floor in future and deliberately book a twin room as you need space to relax after a day's work. The third floor is the ibis equivalent of a flop house floor. The "complimentary" breakfast - who do they think they're kidding, it' not complimentary, it's included in the price but ibis have taken the opportunity to insult their guests intelligence on arrival. The food is poor. If you like healthy eating, you have to take your own food. There isn't even a bowl of chopped fruit, maybe a couple of apples and a banana lying around with very poor quality Muselli. As for parking, that's not complimentary! I'd rather have the option of not paying for the appalling breakfast and go with complimentary parking. The hotel is south of the rail tracks where the traffic is horrendous. 30 mins for 2.5 miles. Better to stay north of the line if you can. I really cannot recommend eating in the hotel, the food is very poor. The couple of local pubs are no better, so you're in for a trip somewhere. I now stop on the way back from the client premises so I don't have to fight through the worst in-town traffic I've come across. I certainly wouldn't want to live here. One of the client's attendees had been booked into a hotel 11 miles away and took 90 mins getting in! Like many hotels the cleaners tuck the duvet in under the mattress. Who sleeps like that? Nobody does! So you, the guest, have to pull everything out and remake the bed. What is the point in that? Why do I need to do their job? Do it right the first time and not only is it less work making the room up, it's less work for the guest too. Win, win. Why make life more difficult for everyone? Overall, I'd happily stay in one of the second floor twin rooms again but not in one of the horrid little doubles in the roof, that was simply unpleasant. It's acceptable for a business trip if you're in one of the much more spacious twin rooms. If you think healthy eating means skipping butter on your toast, you'll be fine with the food. There are good places to eat but not within a mile of the hotel, so you'll need to drive or cab it to a restaurant.

Great value hotel in Reading. Friendly staff, rooms spotless, nice breakfast, complimentary tea & coffee in the bar. Evening meal if needed. Hard to beat for a short stay & secure parking too. We will definitely be back

highly recommend visiting here, the family room was perfect with a double bed and a sofa bed. The breakfast in the morning is lovely and it's included in your room price. The staff were polite and friendly.

We've stayed here once before, and found it fine. This stay was also great. It's quiet at night time, the rooms are good, and breakfast is fantastic. It's ideal for us as we're close to most of our family.

A business as well as family hotel. Plenty space car park for £5 per night. A kids corner and modern looks lobby lounge. Sufficient breakfast menu for family. Not too big family room. The room temperature is well controlled even without in-room temp control. Too high bath tube for kids. Many restaurants nearby, easy to find halal food as well.

A pleasant enough stay but I don't understand why you can't provide free parking for your guests? I understand the need to charge someone who isn't staying at the hotel, but for paying guests. Didn't quite sit well.

I was unable to stay in the booked room as there was an unbearable smell in the room. I arrived late at night and there was no alternative. the staff team called around and found another hotel with a room 15 minutes away. the parking I was promised wasn't there, but as I left anyway this wasn't a a major issue. but I was parked in the drop off area. I finally got to bed in my alternative hotel at 1.45 in the morning, and this totally disrupted my plans for work for the next few days.

Stay in Ibis around the country regularly, never had this sort of experience before. Team clearly demotivated and unhappy, and although they were managing to give reasonable guest service, they could be heard (and to be fair, were very happy sharing with the guests) what a dreadful place this one is to work! Had to ask for my Accor complimentary drinks voucher. Parking was a real headache, which seemed to be a gripe for most guests. Veg chilli was fine but soggy nan bread (microwaved, I did question why and was told they are not allowed to use the MerryChef!); breakfast was poor with over diluted juice, one coffee machine not working (tray needed emptying) and a choice of CocoPops, Rice Crispies or Cornflakes (not much for adults in my opinion). On checkout was asked if everything was ok, when I said no, I got a shrugged 'sorry'. Room was clean, had what I needed, shower was hot and plentiful.

Improve evening meal. Breakfast is limited for early morning starters. Due to nature of guests which tend to building workmen by 7.00 variety of food is at a shortage. On the last two visits there was no bread, crossaints, bacon available.

The hotel is perfectly adequate. £5 additional fee to park but the cost was very good compared to other hotels in the area in the Ibis group. The property is on Oxford Road which is slightly intimidating and unwelcoming. Many take-aways but only 1 sit down restaurant which is an Indian some 1200 m distant along Oxford Road. The food on offer in the hotel is very basic and seemingly microwave productions which is not to all tastes unless you want processed fast food. Breakfast is included in the room rate and was good in terms of quality and variety. The internet is the fastest I have ever come across.

Hotel was very tidy, breakfast was excellent and the staff were very good in looking after us Only downside which was not too difficult was the underground parking No proper and clear white lines meant selfish people parked all over and therefore less cars got in

4th stay breakfast has improved and is very good staff at hotel very professional. Unfortunately due to my experience with there telephone service I will be reluctant to stay again. Due to MY error I booked the wrong days having phoned customer service number I was told there was nothing they could to to help I would have to cancel my booking and re book and there would be no re fund witch I did without thinking so I lost my £92 and booked again witch again cost me £92 for my 2 day stay if the man on the end of the phone was more helpful to solve my problem he could have told me to keep original booking and just booked an extra night witch again I did not think off till it was to late so this is why I left this Again the hotel,is good but the service on phone terrible

Stayed here a few times, everything we needed was provided. Staff are excellent - nothing was too much trouble, a credit to the company. The breakfast was sufficient not 5 star quality but enough for our needs.

Hotel is a bit outside Reading centre but there are plenty of buses right outside you can catch that run regularly. I preferred the Ibis on Reading high street, far more central to the train station which is a 5 minute walk. The bed was a bit too hard for me.

You'll discover a broad mix of flooring styles here - from bold geometric carpet shapes, to light woods and textured vinyl. The furniture is a mix of colours, shapes and surfaces, with spray-finished metal stools in yellow and green, curved metal pendant lighting, and fabric egg chairs that you can sink right into. Each of the hotel's 97 bedrooms are kitted out in one of two 'stables' colourways. The first mixes trendy grey and magenta, with a 2 tone textured headboard and brightly edged fabric curtains. The second is a zesty mix of lemons, limes and sky blue. Above the headboard of both is a wall graphic of horses and jockeys racing toward glory.

ibis styles Reading Oxford Road is located in the heart of Reading; just a short trip to both Newbury and Royal Ascot Racecourses. Our designer used these colourful scenes of unmissable racing, crazy hats and colourful headpieces to create a design mix that captures the best of both day-to-day and also special-days.

Unpack your bags, then open your blinkers and take in the room. Head downstairs where you can enjoy a glass of champagne in our own members' enclosure (also known as the bar). From there, check out the mural of horses galloping across the back wall, while the kids meet our resident rocking horse or draw ponies on our mini blackboard. If racing doesn't take your fancy, the hotel is also just a brief canter away from LEGOLAND Windsor, Thorpe Park and the Reading Festival. Whether you're here on a ladies day, a gentleman's jaunt, or for some family fun, brighten up your stay in a hotel that's here to set a happy tone.
