Check in to 4-star comfort at Novotel Reading Centre hotel with the city's best restaurants, bars and shopping on your doorstep. Your room's airy, contemporary design and muted, warm colours will make it a perfect retreat for you and your family. A session in the hammam and a dip in the heated indoor pool are a great way to re-energise at Novotel.

Late night stay

Everything was spot on. The only problem was as a mature adult and sober to boot. I was not allowed to purchase a late night drink from the bar.

Very loud

Beware - the trade-off for the great central location is the extremely loud street and late-night partiers. Be sure to ask for a room at the back of the hotel.

Great for business

Perfect for business. Irons in the room, solid internet connection, good breakfast, and wonderful location in easy walking distance to Reading Station. Will stay here on future business trips to Reading.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

If you enjoy beer, try the Hobgoblin. Good hole-in-the-wall beer bar for traditional English ales.
