The George Hotel is believed to be the oldest existing building in Reading, dating back to at least as far as 1423. It was one of the major coaching inns between London and the West Country in the 18th century, and it still retains many of its wonderful:original Coaching Inn features, including Tudor Archways and a very attractive Cobbled stone courtyard. The main entrance from King Street still contains some of the original timbers, and 18th and 19th century facades overlook the courtyard.

Good Hotel

I stayed for a night at this hotel. The location is perfect - its just a 5 minute walk from reading station and its right beside the shopping complex called Oracle and grocery stores are also nearby. The staff were very accomodating and helpful. I needed a plug that would work with my US laptop and the staff helped me with that. Also this hotel offers breakfast which is really good. The hotel room was nice and clean, the bed was a little too soft for my comfort (maybe some improvement is needed here), but that's only a minor negative. Overall I am very pleased and would definately choose this hotel for my next trip to Reading

Mercure George, Reading, UK

Typical, old English hotel. GOOD: In this case, 'old' is good as the building is interesting, historical and well-maintained (not old and run down). Located on the downtown pedestrianized street near restaurants, stores, mall. Two blocks from train station. Excellent access to London-Heathrow via RailAir[@] bus. Internet isn't free but works well. Friendly, helpful staff.BAD: No elevator. Rooms are smallish but not tiny. No safe in room for valuables. If you need modern, this isn't it.SUMMARY: Will gladly stay there again.
