Modern, clean hotel with amazing buffet breakfast
Ideal location from train station (4 min walk) for an one night stay prior to flight out of Gatwick. Clean, friendly, modern. Great pool, sauna, steam room & gym. Best buffet breakfast ever with excellent variety of choice. Definitely will stay here again

Noisy at night as it is in an area surrounded by bars. Even though we were on the 10th floor you could still hear the rowdiness from the street.

Overall good
It was good..only complaint, sink was blocked, a lot of noise from rowdy youths on streets early hours of morning

Novotel Reading Centre, Reading
great location
excellent location, amenities and comfort, apart from the sofa bed which had broken wooden slats which made it wonky to sleep on as slipped down in the middle. but everything else was great.
