Mercure George Hotel Reading, Reading
Excellent4.0 / 5
Charming building - modern bathroom - small but perfectly adequate room. Friendly hotel staff. I arrived at 11:30 PM, and was greeted by name as soon as I walked in the front door - the staff was expecting me. Would stay there again. The location was great! Next door to the Oracle, near shopping, a 7 minute walk to the train station and the bus to Heathrow Airpot.

Old and Funky outside, Clean and Modern rooms.
Funky old building in a great location, a minute from Broad Street and the Oracle entrance. 5-10 minute walk from the train station. Labyrinthine hallways and roller-coaster floors let you know how old the building is and are kind of fun, but the rooms I have stayed in have been remarkably large and comfortable. It appears furnishings were updated after Mercure took over. My only problem was on the first night when the WiFi was not working (in fact a repeater in my room had been unplugged) and my account always showed up as expired. After 4 or 5 iterations with the hotel staff they finally gave me access to the central account and all was fine after that. Staff were friendly and responsive. I did not use the hotel breakfast option as there are many economical options a few steps from the door, including the ubiquitous Starbucks and a Sainsburys grocery (there are fridges and electric kettles in the rooms, but no microwave). Many very nice restaurants within a few minutes walk as well. Also quick access to Reading bus routes for travel to other parts of town.

Enjoyed my stay
I chose the hotel after reading mixed reviews and deciding that I liked the fact that I'd be staying in the oldest building in Reading. Sure, the floors squeak when people walk but once you realize you are staying in a historic building, if you can't take that, don't stay there. I found the George to be in very good shape, being a landmark, and yes, I could hear footsteps on the ceiling above my room. I stayed two nights. The room was comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful and the setting, for me, was special. Had no problem sleeping. I tried to imagine myself there centuries earlier. It's in a pleasant area of shopping and dining to explore on foot. I would definitely return.

Away on business
I stay at the George when I am away on business. It is clean and tidy and a little eccentric. There are no lifts and plenty of stairs! It is close to the Oracle shopping centre and the riverside restaurants, which makes it a fantastic place to stay.

Tired and worn out bed :-(
Awful - worst night sleep in a long time. Mattress was collapsed and worn out, and bed was on a sloping floor - no attempt had been made to level it out! It's an old building with sloping floors - I get that, but at least level the beds up!! Staff didn't even ask at checkout if everything was ok or not - just here's the bill!
