Great staff, warm welcome
The staff were very helpful and happy. We ate breakfast and evening meal at the Coppa and it was very good.

The Great House at Sonning, Reading
Had stayed at The Great House a couple of times before, and had a fantastic experience so was looking forward to it. Not so much, when another guest entered the room... having been given our room number and key. Just as well there was someone in the room. The room itself was nice and the bathroom was very comfortable - rainfall shower. The Coppa Club service was pretty appalling - the waitress left before even asking if we wanted drinks when we ordered our food, everything looked like a massive effort and we had to wait about 15 mins to get someone's attention for the bill... and it wasn't even that busy. The food was nice but, but definitely expected better service.
