Novotel Reading Centre, Reading
Clean hotel but noisy outside.
Stayed in a newly refurbished room(312), bathroom is nice and clean with some pleasant touches. Tv is a bit small but functional, it was good to have a kettle and everything for tea(also a kurig). Only gripe was that outside was really noisy from 11.30pm to 2am every night as the hotel is bang in the middle of 3 night clubs. They know it’s a problem as they left ear plugs in the room.

Only breakfast time was overcrowded and delayed in arrival due to lack of staff demand
