"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
"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
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.

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."
Hotel was in a very good location in the town center on the down side it was very noisy due to the close vecinity of local bars blasting out music til 3 in the morning,room was small warm and comfy on the down side the bathroom was not cleaned during my stay i was giving no fresh towles in fact their were still on the floor were i left when i returned […] to hotel on the first day, the cup i used for coffee was only part cleaned and still had coffee stain on it, i paid for B&B only to find out on arrival that Breakfast is not served during weekend stays, no parking facillities cost £12 per night in local car park would not stay again.

"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.

"Central, convenient and clean"
Very close to the station and excellent value for money. What it had to offer was no-frills, but very clean and well presented. Excellent for overnight stay before catching the bus to Heathrow and much cheaper than the London alternatives. Unmanned check-in worked well and breakfast from 7am was fast and tasty.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"La Baguette - NOT RECOMMENDED"
I am an experienced traveler, having staying in B&Bs, hotels, university dorms, and tents. I even slept on the pier once in my youth. HOWEVER, I was severely disappointed with La Baguette. I arrived at 10:00 pm and found the building locked up. A passing couple allowed me to use their mobile phone to contact the manager, who said he'd sent me an email […] with details, but I received no such email. The key card had been left in a lock box. I found this odd as I had specific "24 hour reception" in my search for a room because I knew my train would be coming in late. (What would have happened if I hadn't happened upon this couple?) The room was incredibly small; once my carry-on was set next to the bed (the only place for it), I had to climb over it to get to the bathroom. I couldn't get to sleep until around 3 a.m. A bright blue light from a nearby pub shined brightly through the window, even with the curtains drawn. The music from the pub was so loud even earplugs didn't drown it out. There was no breakfast provided, which made the relatively low price a moot point. Again, no notification was sent to me regarding this-- otherwise I'd have chosen other lodging. There wasn't even anyone to ask about breakfast, nor did I see a place to eat nearby. I really thought booking a room at a place connected to a bakery guaranteed a place for breakfast. No dice. The listing said internet service was provided, but there were no instructions on how to access that, so yet another selling point was misleading. In the morning, there was no one around to leave the key card with. I left it in the lockbox and wondered if that was the right thing to do. Overall, I give this experience 1/2 a star... one step above sleeping on the street. I spoke with an older gentleman in the morning and saw that his room was a reasonable size, but even if I'd had a larger room, I'd still be disappointed. "Disappointed" is an understatement. I left exhausted, hungry, and annoyed-- not exactly the best wa Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Suitable for short stay"
Check in time located in the cafe, time is limited, except inform hotel by phone. Provide free wifi. Breakfast included. No hairdryer in the room. No lift, you have to lift luggage by yourself to the second floor. Double bed for singe for single room, large for one person.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the train station"
This hotel is very close to the train station. There is a reason for the low price. I didn't mind the standard since I arrived very late, but I wouldn't stay there for a week ;) .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Som andre har anmeldt: noe shabby, ruskete og ikke veldig tiltalende. Jeg ville ikke lagt med på gulvet der, og sengegavlen så ikke ut til å ha vært rengjort på mange måneder! (Den var av stoff og det var hår og støv på den..) Servicen var grei, i og med at jeg ankom etter stengetid, og de hadde lagt nøkkel til meg i en boks utenfor og gitt meg kode […] til den, og jeg fikk et tlf nummer jeg kunne ringe om det var noe.. Jeg trengte bare en seng og sove i, med et bad å stelle meg på, og det var nøyaktig det jeg fikk! Rommet var knøttlite, fikk bare plass til bagen min ved siden av senga, og rommet var fullt.. Jeg ville ikke sovet der flere netter, og jeg våkna av at folk gikk i dørene utenfor.. Men beliggenheten var flott, kun 2 min gange fra togstasjonen i Reading, og det passet meg utmerket. Prisen var grei, så man skal ikke se bortifra at jeg velger å dra dit ved en senere anledning :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
１Fでカフェを運営しているだけあって、朝ご飯が充実していて美味しかった。 部屋も清潔感があり。 スタッフの人も親切にしてくれた。（時間外でも荷物を預かってくれたり。） テーブルと椅子があるとうれしい。ドライヤーもあるとうれしい。 夏だったので部屋が暑かった。扇風機はあったが音がうるさくて、つけっぱなしでは寝れず。、また隣がパブで窓を開けているとうるさかった。 フェスで価格が高騰しているのは分かるが、通常の倍以上するのはちょっと。。。Genuine Expedia guest review
"Draps non changés et service inexistant le weekend"
Hotêl très bien situé (proche centre ville et gare). Arrivé le samedi j'ai eu la mauvaise surprise de constater que les draps n'avaient pas été changés (traces dont je vous laisse imaginer la provenance). De plus comme le B&B est attenant à un fast food fermé le dimanche le service est tout bonnement inexistant , personne à qui se plaindre.
