The red-brick Crowne Plaza Reading hotel overlooks a peaceful stretch of the River Thames, 15 minutes' walk from Reading town centre. Nestled among trees on the banks of the River Thames, you'll find Crowne Plaza Reading an elegant retreat primed for business success, lavish banquets and a strategic base for unlocking London. If you're here with family, for a seminar or wedding, leave a gap for some me-time in our sumptuous Leisure Club, with its infinity-effect pool , sauna and 5 luxury treatment rooms. Crowne Plaza Reading is 1 hour's drive from central London. You can leave your vehicle in our complimentary car park and stroll 15 minutes to Reading rail station , where trains zip to London Heathrow Airport in 20 minutes and central London in 30 minutes . Flirt with the latest fashions at The Oracle mall in Reading town centre or treat the family to escapades at Thorpe Park or LEGOLAND Windsor theme parks. Strive for business success from the leather chairs in our dark wood Executive Boardroom. For an insider guide to quaint pub gardens and locks along the river, look no further than the dedicated Concierge at Crowne Plaza Reading .

Down fall was hotel car park went to get into our van in he morning and had a big scratch and dent down the side which nothing could be done as was on private property so a lovely stay but its cost us a bit of money in the long run. Hotel was lovely Wouldn't recommend due to parking and wouldn't expect this from a 4 star,

Superb Hotel

This hotel and all it's staff made my stay an absolute memorable one. From the minute I arrived, the professional and friendly service was awesome, and when my daughter and grandchildren visited the leisure centre,every effort was made to accomodate their every wish. This hotel deserves 5 star rating. Simply Superb.

First class service hotel in Reading

REally surprised at good quality of this hotel for the price, and wonderful employees. Near the station and on the River Thames to walk.. Area near station is not too hot so don't walk alone at night in the area to towards that direction. Very safe around hotel and car park good. Geoff -Somerset

Clean & Great Location

My husband and I live in the US and went to England for a week and a half to visit his family who live in Reading. We chose this hotel because it's close to the Town Centre (about a ten minute walk if that) and had read many other good reviews. While the room was rather small compared to the places we've stayed in the States, we really don't have any complaints about our stay other than the bed being a little uncomfortable. The staff was polite and the room was clean and in good condition. The room also had a refrigerator so rather than paying the usual high hotel prices for breakfast, we bought cereal and milk at a local shop.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you are traveling with at least one other person and plan to take a few day trips to London via train, get a Network railcard. They're good for a 33% discount on up to four people. The money we saved on just two trips covered the cost of the railcard.
