Recent guest reviews

The staff really make this place, they are always so welcoming and go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The rooms are comfortable and as described - tea, coffee, TV, hair dryer etc. (although there is some differences between rooms and bathrooms depending which room you get). The breakfast is lovely, and always served with a smile :) the communal areas are very comfortable and well equipped. The only negative thing I can say is the area is a little noisy in the evenings.

The staff are incredibly friendly, always on hand to do what they can to make things as easy as possible for you with a warm smile. I've stayed there on repeat trips and they honestly go out of their way to help each time I am there, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are as described, nice and tidy with all facilities (tea, coffee, biscuits, TV etc), everything is very fresh and clean.

Abbey house is a short distance from Reading centre.It is in a quiet residential location with ample parking,room was clean and comfortable and a bargain price to boot! I never had breakfast,so unable to comment about that, however,I will use the Abbey House when in the Reading area again.

Nice owner ,but had annex room very small with damp mouldy bathroom ,also in unsavory area of reading ,did not feel safe when walking late at night .I was with my sister, not a pleasant experience at all .

These rooms are just as described, very clean and tidy. You have everything you need in the room, TV, kettle to make coffee and tea (with biscuits too!!!) The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Lovely communal lounge with wide screen TV and breakfast is always perfect! Whenever you ask the staff for help with anything, they're always very accommodating!

Stayed at Abbey House during Ascot week and I must say it was a great choice. Breakfast was very good, our twin room was perfect and above all the quietness was very welcome. The Manager and Staff were top class. They were extremely friendly and made our stay most enjoyable. I look forward to my next visit and would recommend Abbey House as a lovely place to stay, David Hallinan.

This was my fourth time staying at this hotel. I am amazed how services and products offerings are consistent over and over again. I love this hotel warm friendly welcome, easy to connect WiFi and hot breakfast in mornings. Location is also perfect for a quick walk to pretty much everything. I thank you this facility for providing a consistent experience.

I had a chance to stay in Abbey House Hotel on my way to USA and on return. The place is really quiet and peaceful. The stay was excellent with friendly staff ready to help. The breakfast was excellent and freshly prepared. I also had a chance to order burger for dinner. The burger quality was very good and it was nicely prepared in hotel. I had a wonderful, memorable and comfortable stay. The hotel has good access to Reading train station and RailAir link bus service to Heathrow at very competitive price. The hotel was very clean and kitchen was being maintained at the highest standards of hygiene. I would love to stay again at Abbey House Hotel.

I made a reservation online, booked the hotel for 2 nights. When I arrived at the hotel my partner was not allowed to stay due to not having his ID. We did not stay at the hotel due to this and did not make the cash payment at the reception. Later that I day I checked my recent transactions, to see the hotel has taken full payment for both nights from my bank. Firstly I was not advised that payment has been taken from my bank account or it will be taken, card details where given for the reservation. Neither was I given the option to stay without my partner. I emailed regarding this and was advised the manager is away, i have chased this up again and I have had no response!

Although we only stayed here one night, the service we got was outstanding. A warm welcome and easy parking. A very clean, spacious and comfortable room (9) on the first floor at the back of the hotel caught the afternoon sun. A nice size, very clean, shower room, with a good shower. Breakfast was included and was very good, large selection of cereals etc. Nice to see cereals in individual boxes, not those dispensers with stale cereal in. Good cooked breakfast with a good choice. It wasn't until we when down for breakfast that we realised we were the only guests that night, so to have such a choice at breakfast was impressive. All in all, a nice place to stay with easy off road parking friendly staff and a quite location.
