Lovely location overlooking the River Thames. Easy walk into Reading town centre. It suited our needs.
It needs an update. The bedroom and bathroom look a bit tired. The carpet in the corridors looked a bit grubby.
Great hotel, breakfast a bit pricey (we didn’t pre-book then changed our mind) but it was v good.
Room was not so clean. Found water marks on the taps, found hairs on the bed (not ours), found a couple of spiders around the room. Sunday evening around 8 pm we returned to our room, realised there was a wedding going on where the music was being heard ridiculously loud in our room - that did however end at 9 pm. We were then woken up at 7 am Monday morning by a really loud engine/motor noise. As we were by a river I expected it to be a boat. The noise continued for a while and got louder so I got up to look outside the window only to realise it was a leaf blower - employed by the hotel! The leaf blower was literally working outside our window and many other room windows between 7 - 8 am - very inconsiderate... Upon checkout the receptionist asked if we had a nice stay to which I responded 'not really' she nodded, smiled, said nothing and walked off. I did not want to make a scene and figured I would email with a complaint - to which the Crowne Plaza have offered me a complimentary dinner as an apology.
hotel is in a lovely location on the banks of the River Thames. We were upgraded to an exec room free of charge which was comfortable. Excellent breakfast.
the bedroom and bathroom décor was a little "tired" and could do with some refurbishment. The evening meal that we had at the hotel didn't really meet the standard that we had expected from this hotel.
Asked for a twin got a double. The staff staff were quick to sort this.
Got woke up at 3am by water pouring from the roof outside the window. I was told I should have called reception at 3am to report it. It should have been sorted it the first place. Not a cheap place to stay!!
