Parkside International Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very dated hotel, which I can cope with if I get a good nights sleep. Sleep is completely impossible at this hotel due to the constant banging of internal hall doors throughout the entire night, do not think that I’m exaggerating, I am not!! Its awful. I tried to speak to a manager about this but there was no manager available!!!

If you are looking for a dog friendly 3 star hotel then this is great. We stayed for 9 nights with two dogs and it was the perfect place. I didn’t want a pristine place like one of the larger chains where I would be worried about the dogs all of the time. So this was ideal. The rooms are clean, basic and a good size and the hotel has plenty of free parking. There are no extra charges for dogs. The town centre was about a 25 minute walk and prospect park about 5 mins. The staff were friendly and accommodated our room change on the first night when we smelt cigarette smoke in our room. Very helpful. Again recommended if you are looking for a good budget hotel.

I've booked in for 5 nights! This is 1am on night two. If thinking of booking here, do yourselves a big favour. Read all the reviews, then consider camping on the slip road of the M4 as a serious alternative. Rooms, noisy. Beds, lumpy and uncomfortable. Rooms, smelly - I had to spray fabreeze around the room just to make it bearable. Staff, unfriendly and unwelcoming. Not rude, but language isn't their first method of communication. Having stayed at the Travelodge on the M4, if they had rooms, I would be there! Still thinking of booking here as you think it can't be that bad. It's 1:30 am and I'm checking out!

This hotel is situated away from the centre of Reading but is a 15/20 minute walk from where the Reading Festival takes place. The staff are very friendly and next to the reception is a bar/T.V area. The rooms offer what is required but clearly the hotel could do with some up-dating.I cannot comment on the breakfast as I didn,t have breakfast. This hotel is ok if you are on a budget.

Highly recommend this hotel, cheap and cheerful, all staff very friendly, the bedroom was clean, spacious and the bed was super comfy, best I've ever stayed in! Was just a flying visit, and although we had trouble accessing the hotel due to the road closure that the hotel was on, we were let through eventually. We had a full english in the morning (from 8am weekends) which was okay, free wifi, lots of parking (free), no extra cost for dogs, all staff were welcoming and friendly with our dog, 24 hour check in service

We booked a room on a Saturday night for 3 of us. Great price and the man on the desk swapped us to a larger room without us asking. No food at the weekend, but we were directed to a Beefeater across the road. Beds were not very comfortable at all, but room was clean and a good size. Unfortunately it was very warm in overnight and I didn't sleep well, I would guess this is an ongoing problem in the summer as a fan was provided in the room, but it was too noisy for using while sleeping.

Stayed 3 nights here. Room immaculate, good size for a single, plenty of storage space. Housekeeping very good. A very busy road runs in front of hotel so traffic noise is constant. So best to ask for a room at the back.

Spent one night at the Hotel, a Friday night, the staff were very kind and accommodating and on that evening the Hotel was obviously sparsely occupied, there was no food available at the Hotel on Friday evening so we ventured to the local Beefeater nearby along Bath Road which was not good. We stayed in Room 207 which was very quiet at the side of the Hotel but as it was near the road we kept the window closed and the room without AirCon was very warm that night which wasn't very comfortable. There are minor cosmetic issues with the room and the bathroom that could be addressed by the owners that would definitely improve the place but as its a budget place in compare to other nearby Venues I imagine they are content with its current conditon. On Saturday morning there was no cooked food available until after 8am and as we were going out a bit early we missed out on a cooked breakfast although there was Continental style food available from 7.30am for us.

Clean, friendly and comfortable hotel with breakfast. Good sized rooms, comfortable mattress, fan included for hot nights. Convenient location, 10min bus ride to central or 30 ish minute walk, nice park nearby and plenty of choice of food in the area including deliveroo and local restaurants. Would recommend.

This is a good basic hotel, clean, friendly and central. Staff are efficient, dogs admitted without extra charge. It is essentially a tradies hotel, but none the worse for that. If you're looking for 5 stars, keep going. If you want clean, reasonably priced accommodation, stop here. Parking is good, wifi works well, restaurant and bar are good. No complaints and will stay here again. There was a slight smell of cigarette smoke in the room, despite no smoking notices, but it was bearable.
