Not five star.
Nice but definitely not five star.

Forbury remains a good choice but not first class
Friendly staff in one of the better hotels in Reading but unfortunately there was an noisy airvent in my bathroom that couldn't be turned off (even by the staff) resulting in a very cold bathroom. The shower drain did not work so the promising rain shower had to be minimized to prevent flooding. Breakfast suffered from a loud SKYradio station. No power outlets next to the bed.

Beautiful hotel, friendly staff, impeccably maintained. Closed end street has zero noise. Great city location.
