      Quiet and relaxed environment, coasy suites.

      Hard mattress

      Considering its location it's quite and peaceful.

      We were told a discounted rate would apply when we made an extension of stay, but upon checking out the reception of the day said the discount did not exist! And she refused to contact and clarify with her colleague who made the promise because it's too early (9 in the morning)... Poor staff.

      You need to provide more towels in the rooms. If i remember correctly we had 2 small towels and 1 large towel for 2 adults, which wasn't enough. Apart from that, there was no problems.

      The booking worked smoothly. The rooms were functional to good. The hotel was efficient and quick at getting taxis. The food was good. Staff were friendly. The fitness equipment was nearly new.

      The ambience of the bar was rather old-fashioned.

    • Older travelers

      Friendly staff, warm room and bathroom and good choice at breakfast

      second bed not made up on arrival but quickly attended to. Fire door in corridor outside room banged loudly everytime anyone went through.

      staff - excellent-v friendly and very helpful

      hotel generally looking very tired.

      It was driving distance to Reading town centre.

      Mine was a last minute booking, but was only told on arrival that I had no shower (there actually was one, but had been taped up and not working). I chose the hotel as it had a gym, but couldn't use this as the gym had no shower either. Also, the advert said the room had satellite tv, but I actually only had 3 channels available.

      Pleasant rooms, cooking facility, nice staff

      , Distance from center of town.Shower head and faucet needed a serious scrubbing

    • Single
      4.4

      The staff were friendly and helpful. There was ample free parking.

      The hotel is in need of refurbishment. It lacks the basic facilities one expects in a hotel in the price range.

    • Family with children
      7.0

      We liked best that there were facilities like a refrigerator and microwave. It is easy to be able to make/keep fresh things fresh (again) when you're on your way. We also liked the possibility to make some coffee or tea. On the room at the ground floor was airco, that was nice. Shops to buy a takeaway meal were nearby; several to choose from! Staff was friendly and helpfull.

      It looked a bit dusty; windows to look out weren't really clean. For the rest everything was alright.

      It was ok about us getting back late.

      Hillingdon Prince locates near to Reading university. Walking distance to the Reading city centre. It is a quite place. Prices reasonable. Nice surroundings. On call facilities are good.

      Rooms are small. Double bed rooms sizes are not constant. I used two double rooms, one is big, with cooking facilities. Other one is small. No cooking facilities. I have used tripple bed room also. No cooking facilities. Old type tv in the tripple room, not working properly. Previous rooms got new TVs.There was no iron in tripple room. Drinking glasses provided after reuesting. In 500 block, there was an entrance on the first floor, near to room 517, without a controlled access key. Big noice when opening room doors. I extended my stay for two days, with confirmation from the reception saying that I can use the same room. But next day, same officer informed me that I have to change my room. During the summer, rooms are hot. Not comfortable, other than rainy days. Hotel has to provide fans, I suggest. Rooms have to be categorized according to the sizes and facilities available. Then visitor is aware what he will get. I met 6 receptionists during my 8 days stay. Consistance of information and reservation have to be.

      The room was very spacious and there was free internet access. Nearby there was a bakery and kebab shop and there's buses nearby to the town area. This is very convenient.

    • Family with children

      Location near university. Like the neighbourhood. Parking area. Nice breakfast. Good manner employees

      Management should renovate the hotel. It needs that 'something' to become happy and bright. Hall and bar area needs to be modern with modern chairs and tables. Throw wall down and make a bigger room bright with modern colours on the walls and new carpets. Airconditioning should be installed in rooms. Very hot.
