Positive Reviews

Quiet and affordable rooms with cosy beds

Guests frequently said the simple rooms were more than sufficiently spacious, clean and comfy for a stopover. Travellers also praised the cosy beds. Due to the competitive room rates, many guests remarked that they got fair value for money. Even the lightest sleepers could barely detect any road noise from the nearby motorway and concluded that soundproofing measures in the rooms were effective.

Guest perks and customer service praised

Travellers appreciated the pleasant, helpful and professional employees, who provided good customer service. Guests also loved the way they could enjoy discounts on selected food and drink within the service station.

Roadside location appealed to motorists

Drivers in particular were keen on this hotel's location off the westbound M4 near Reading. Not only was it a short drive from Reading town centre for shopping, dining and public transport, but also there was ample free parking.  Guests also liked the convenience of having all the amenities of a service station at their disposal, including places to eat, petrol stations and shops. Motorists also reported that it was pretty easy to get to regional attractions, beauty spots, golf courses and sports venues.

Negative Reviews

Cleanliness and maintenance grumbles

Minor maintenance and cleanliness issues like interruptions to the hot water supply and inadequately cleaned bathrooms attracted criticism from reviewers in certain rooms.

Obstacles to sleep reported

It was reportedly a struggle to regulate the room temperature, especially during hot weather when some reviewers found it uncomfortably warm. Guests in some rooms said they could detect lingering smoky smells, which proved to be off-putting.

Disapproval of free Wi-Fi limits

Reviewers disliked the way they had to pay to use the Wi-Fi network after a complimentary half-hour period was exceeded. Some critics also complained of an unreliable signal in several rooms.
