Novotel Reading Centre

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very friendly and helpful staff. They were able to check us in early which was a great help travelling with children.

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.

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.

25b Friar Street Reading England
