yuk! If you are a B and B then serve breakfast. We stayed on a Saturday night and they don't serve breakfast on Sunday mornings. If that was in the pre-booking info I must have missed it. Still, kinda sucks because I paid the same price. Room was stuffy and windows didn't open. No A/C usually isn't a problem in England but it is if you can't get windows to open. Close to train station was its best feature. We never interacted with a human being at this place - I found that odd.

Avoid unless you have no choice
The only good thing about it is the location, right by the train station and around the corner from the very nice Reading city centre. As other reviewers have noted, this isn't a hotel. It isn't really a bed and breakfast either as once the cafe closes at 3:00 there is NO ONE around in case you need anything or require anything. The room is very basic with run-down bureau, old, somewhat stained wall to wall carpet, no chair (at least for my single room) and a VERY UNCOMFORTABLE single bed. I could feel the coils. All doors slam very loudly even if you are trying to be quiet. Bring ear plugs. My room overlooked a back alley filled with garbage cans that were noisily filled around 11:00 at night. The free breakfast was a thoroughly inadequate selection of a bowl of corn flakes or two pieces of buttered toast and a mysterious concoction supposed to be scrambled eggs or a full English breakfast with toast, beans, an egg and mystery meat. If you can abide the mystery meat, it's some sort of breakfast; if you are vegetarian, you will leave almost as hungry as when you arrived. Can't imagine who would frequent this cafe except the beleaguered guests of the "hotel." The staff, who appear to be East European or Russian, aren't exactly friendly. The whole setup reminded me of a post-Cold War place I stayed in in Prague a long while ago. Everything was cheap, beaten-up, and frankly depressing. I hate given such a totally negative review, but this place deserves it.

OK for overnight but only if a low price is offer
Booked a single and got a double so that was a nice surprise. Walls are paper thin so bring earplugs. TV didn't work. Room is a bit depressing.

Noisy and unpleasant
On arrival at the hotel there were no staff and no intercom, push button that dials a number, no phone just a A4 piece of paper with telephone numbers. Lucky my phone was charged otherwise I wouldn't have been able to get in without a lot of hassle. Rang the 1st number it rang out, 2nd number somebody answered and gave me a code to get my card from a box on the wall. How hard would it be to install a £130 ring video doorbell or some kind of dialler intercom? Room looked like it was very dated, very pink, carpet, curtains, bed, lamp, pink everything and all had a look like it hasn't been updated for a very long time. As it was so hot in the room I opened the window (big mistake) as at midnight, 1AM and then even past 1AM the pub courtyard directly below emptied crate after crate of bottles in to 9 massive square bins, the noise was crazy. On top of the noise from the big 9 (I counted them) air conditioning units all humming away cutting in and out through the night on the walls outside the window - yet my room didn't have any aircon, it if did maybe I could close the window and get a decent night's sleep. The ONLY good part was the breakfast.

Most awful experince
I went to attend a conference in London. It was al on line booking.The hotel owner stays far away leaving the key for entry to a neighbouring café. On entry the doorway was poorly lit .The way to the room was littered with dirt and heavily stained carpet. The timing of the light was such that the light turned off before I reached my room, leaving me out in the cold and dark. Over all the experience of staying in that hotel was very traumatic I will not recommend this place for any body.
