No clean towels. No room service for beds. When I complained the woman said I asked not to have clean linens. SHOULD NOT BE RECOMMENDED TO ANYONEGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great, great and great location"
The hotel's location is awesome (1 minute walking from the train station and 5 minutes walking from the Oracle Mall). The staff in the restaurant were very friendly and the breakfast really good with a wide selection (don't expect cheese though). The room's size is average. The bed was very clean with new sheet but they missed cleaning the washing basin […] every day for no apparent reason. Overall, good for a short stay if you don't mind average sized rooms.

"Delightful and affordalbe B&B centrally located."
I have seldom been more surprised at the convenience and comfort of a B&B. It is located within a block or two of the Reading Rail/Bus Station. It is above a cute coffee shop. There is excellent wireless, TV and good security (3 card entries to open rooms). The room and bathroom was spotless.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was clean, easy to find and really close to the Railair and train station. I could get the room key even after teh reception was close. They left it in a mail box for me with instructions. Overall it was good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location, but cleanliness not so good"
the location is really good, but noise and not clean...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a good room for price"
One person, £65 for small single that is too warm is too muchGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The corridor smelt of enamel so not a great welcome, the room was ok but the shower was not clean. Ok for a one night stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, convenient with comfortable bed"
We had difficulty finding the place, as the sat nav kept sending us down bus only routes. Fortunately we had access to google maps. I had requested twin beds, but on arrival found a double bed. After contacting the owner, a single fold up bed was delivered quickly. There is no parking available close by, which was a disadvantage. Some information on […] where to park, when booking would be useful. The room was clean, nicely decorated and the bed comfortable, with a good shower. There was no air con, but a fan was provided. It was, however too noisy to leave on at night and the room was very hot. The breakfast was very good in the cafe below the building. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel" is a bit of a misnomer - there is no reception as such after 15:00, when the cafe downstairs closes. Instead, you'll be sent an e-mail giving you the code to access your room key from a box. The room was small, but clean and with all the facilities you want, and the two ladies in the cafe very professional in providing breakfast for those staying […] as well as those coming in just to buy sandwiches etc. for work. So cost-effective and quite acceptable for that "need to stay somewhere decent" trip. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean but noisy"
Nice clean room, small but had everything that was needed. The room became very hot as the night wore on to the point where I had to sleep on top of the bed clothes with the fan directed towards me. Also, the window to the room overlooked the back of a pub that was open until late and I was constantly woken by the bottle bin being loaded with empty […] bottles at regular intervals - and I normally sleep through anything, including thunder storms and even a hurricane in Florida once! Other than that, the room was clean, the service good and the breakfast was excellent. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My wife and I often use La Baguette overnight when travelling to Heathrow. The rooms are pretty small, but it's amazingly quiet.Genuine Expedia guest review
The baguette was ok Only a small room but clean and good for a night in transitGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Near the station"
The hotel is clean has good email and location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent location near train station and city center. Not much service assistance. Hotel sold with breakfast, and you only find out when you get there that there is no breakfast on Sunday and bank holiday. Unfair and inconvenient for a B&B package. Prices listed at hotel entrance, is out dated .... Which doesn't help if you want to extend your stay […] only to find out it is 10 pounds more than you expected per nite. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location. Cafe staff super nice, as usual.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I've stayed many times in this B&B, but this time it wasn't as nice as the previous ones. Room 23 needs lots of maintenance: head of the bed was broken, the carpet was torn, the shower base was chipped and one of the towels was torn as well. It's a real shame because I loved everytime I stayed there. This time though, it was nice at all. It might just […] be that room, in that case, fix some of those things before booking people in. The breakfast staff (at the coffee place downstairs) was wonderful, as always. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Inexpensive and convenient location"
Very good price, and central location in Reading make this a good choice. Includes full breakfast tooGenuine Expedia guest review
"You get what you pay for!!"
This is an honest budget hotel and if you need to be in the centre of Reading, it provides an ideal base. Room and bathroom are clean and although somewhat 'no frills', suited my needs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed here for 5 nights in December, initially due to the price and location. I found this to be a very good B&B which couldn't be much more central in Reading. It's also excellently placed for anyone on a course at the nearby QA training facility - about 6 minutes walk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very convenient for Reading Station"
A very quick overnight stay as I landed at Heathrow too late for the last train home and staying at Reading made more sense than overnight at Heathrow. Decor not great, but the room had everything that was needed and at only a couple of minutes from the RailAir bus terminal, it was perfectly located. Breakfast in the cafe was OK and as I was in a hurry […] they put my hot drink in a take-away cup that I could take to the train, which was good. It was ideal for the purpose, inexpensive, and I would be happy to stay there again on a similar trip. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Small but comfy"
Day started badly with e-mail from La Baguette telling me they had double booked and my stay was cancelled, followed by another three minutes later telling me it was a mistake. Stayed in a single room, very small but comfy enough. As frequently reported about this hotel, the TV does not work. For the benefit of the owners, the mains cable has a break […] just where it enters the plug. Cut 2 inches off and fit a new plug and it will be fine! Plus features of this hotel are location, great breakfast and friendly staff in the cafe. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"we didnt have breakfast. everything was not good"
I never see terrible service like that. There was no one to talk to when we need help. The toilet was dirty. The phone wasnt answer when we are calling. welcoming wasnt good. No duvet cover. TV was not working.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap & cheerful"
Good location and nice breakfast; rooms not luxurious but ok; surrounding pubs a little noisy at the weekendGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Located very close to the train station made it easy to get to. My room was at the back and overlooked a very noisy bar/pub so sleeping was an issue. The cafe downstairs hadn't opened when I left (after 9:00am) so I didn't get a breakfast.But it was cheap!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
No one there to let me in bags left right behind front door. Had to book somewhere else still waiting on refund for an appalling choice to trust the site and think I could get a nice cheap bedsitGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A tiny room in a great location!"
I was amazed at how they fit this room in the building, but when I went outside, everything I needed was right there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean Room, close to shops/station, Breakfast good although did not expect to have it in adjoining shop/sandwich barGenuine Expedia guest review
For a cheap B&B, which is what I needed for 1 night, it was perfect. The staff were helpful when I contacted them and no problems with rooms keys or wifi code, It was all explained in an e-mail. Very good value for money and a comfy, clean highly recommended B&B! There was music I could hear but to be honest I expected it in the town Centre of Reading […] and had my ear plugs anyway!

"clean and comfy"
Would stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed for one night on a Saturday, it was value for money and very close to the station. But there was no breakfast, even thou it was part of a café. Because the cafe doesn't open on Sundays or bank holidays. However there are plenty of other cafes that are open for breakfast, including The Monk Head (Wetherspoon), which opens at 7am. The neighbourhood […] is rather noisy, but the double glazing soon sorts out that problem. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for overnight stay by Reading station"
Just stayed for 1 night due to proximity to Reading station. Arrived much later in the night than anticipated, but check in & check out were really easy. Room was clean & tidy, if a bit on the small side; en-suite was nice, new & clean. The only problem I had was that my window looked out onto a terrace next to a night club - I had to close the window […] due to noise & cigarette stench (on a hot summer's eve not exactly ideal). Might be worth asking for a room on the other side of the building. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient location for a good B&B"
The B&B experience was good and met my needs. The room was clean & comfortable and the breakfast was perfectly acceptable. Perhaps they should offer an equivalent of the full English but as a vegetarian option. I know they offered beans on toast or scrambled or fried egg on toast, but as a non meat eater, I quite like a breakfast consisting of (from)fried/poached/scrambled […] egg, beans, tomato, mushroom, with veggie sausage. I was quite happy with the choice available, but this is my suggestion. Otherwise, the experience was fine.. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent value. Perfect overnight stay"
I had a small room - but it had everything necessary - a bed, wardrobe, en suite shower/toilet. Couldn't get anything on the TV but wasn't in long enough for that to matter or even to ask for help. Breakfast served in the cafe was really good - fantastic bacon, perfectly cooked fried eggs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, but extremely noise"
The hotel is very near to the train station, reasonable clean for one night stay. But there is a pub within 15 meter of my window, extremely noise on Saturday night. From 10 am to 3 or 4 am. Very loudly, can't sleep well until they finish.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap and OK for one nigth"
The B&B is superbly located and directly by the train station. Simple to find and seconds away from restaurants and other amenities. The room is small, quiet and functional. However, it was missing a hair drier, you had to book the ironing board and the breakfast was plain. The bed was very hard and difficult to sleep in. The B&B is average and you […] could do better by paying a little more to sleep in comfort. But its good for a very short stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"early shift @ airport"
excellent location. so close to public transport. Had to catch 1st coach to airport but my husband stayed on. He was disappointed no breakfast @ week-end. Could do with upgrading the tv.sGenuine Expedia guest review
"slept badly :-("
the hotel was ok but i slept terribly because the curtains allowed do much sunlight in. so at 6am i was awaken hotel owner should spend 100 quid and put some decent blinds... i am afraid i wont returnGenuine Expedia guest review
"No Breakfast even though i paid for it."

"Ideally located for all facilities in town"
Great location, friendly accommodating management. Close to all facilities and railway station. Room basic but exactly what you would expect for the price. Would recommend again. ThanksGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I arrived to the hotel at about 3;30pm, i had rung up earlier saying i would be late for check in so my key was left in the black box, it didnt open until about 3 trys, i then entered the building, as i walked in there was bins liying in the door way. i walked up to my room i enterd it and was greeted by 3 lovely flys,, the room was tiny, not enough […] room for anything. the tv remotes barely worked, the walls where filthy. the shower was good. i didnt stay for breakfast as i had to get of, but i wouldnt stay there again, nor reccomend it to anyone.

good for business and shopping, location very goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I simply needed a hotel close to the station for a business trip. La Baguette fit the bill - my room was clean and functional. Unfortunately I didn't have time to stay for breakfast! Only thing that wasn't so great was the room was extremely hot when I arrived - but all I needed to do was turn down the radiator and open a window to cool it down.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cost effective Accomadation"
Cost effective centrally located Hotel. Warm, free Wifi. TV remotes were broken and not maintained but didnt bother me. Reported them to ownerGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ideal for cheap proximity to Reading Station"
All plus-points apart from: The shower was ok but could have been far better - the head just needs to be replaced to allow better flow. The walls are too thin when there is a noisy family in the adjacent room. The music in nearby bars can be faintly heard until 1am (although I was out until late so was unaffected). Despite this I would stay again if […] I had the same situation of having to be at Reading Station early in the morning. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"small but nice"
I had a problem in contacting hotel when I arrived Reading. I dialed the number showing on this site several times but no one answer. After finding way to the hotel, there is no one so I have to call them again. It took me almost 30mins in front of the hotel to get in to my room. The room was small but really nice and comfortable. The bed sheet and […] pillow look old and a little bit dirty. Shower was acceptable clean. Breakfast at cafe downstairs was lovely and the ladies there was nice to me.

"Perfect, value for money stay"
Excellent communication re: after-hours check-in. Room was large and better even than advertised. Very powerful shower! Clean and well-kept room. Can't fault this B&B for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Exactly what was needed"
It was what I needed.. close to the station downtown reading.. small room but clean. Value was fair all I could ask for.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The cafe was closed when I went to pick my key card up on Saturday morning at 9.30am although it is advertised you can pick up from 9am - 15.00. Breakfast was advertised as included on your booking but when I asked they said no on Sunday? The television did not work in the bedroom. Then at 9pm the music started from near by pubs and was so loud it vibrated […] through the bedroom and was thudding until midnight. So overall I WOULD NOT recommend this B& B & would never stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location, handy for station and shops"
I have two pieces of advice for anyone staying here: bring earplugs and phone the cafe or its owner (both numbers are easy to find online) to make sure you can get in - if the cafe's shut, you'll have to retrieve your keycard from a combination locker by the door. You'll need the earplugs because the cafe you'll be staying above is next door to O'Neill's […] and round the corner from Wetherspoon's. If you can handle both of these and don't mind not staying in the lap of luxury, this is a great little B&B - it's clean and a (pretty decent) cooked breakfast in the cafe is included in the price. The location, while noisy after dark, is otherwise pretty hard to fault - it's literally round the corner from shops, pubs and the station and opposite the Town Hall / museum. My room (a single) was small but had plenty of storage, an en suite shower room, TV and digibox and tea and coffee facilities. Everything was spotless, although I think the mattress was getting a bit tired. It was slightly strange not meeting the landlord at any point, but apparently they do live on the premises. The staff in the cafe were all very friendly and pleasant. I would recommend this hotel if you are looking for a convenient location for a short stay and prepared to forego a couple of comforts. I don't think I'd want to make a long stay of it (I stayed for 2 nights), as I think the noise from the literally neighbouring pubs would have got to me, but it was very nice to be so handy for the station.
