                  The friendliness of the staff was second to none as was the cocktail bar and restaurant.

                  Unfortunately the fire in our room was not working which would have added to the already romantic atmosphere.

                  The Forbury Hotel very romantic and exellent place to in Reading either for business or just married. I am greateful to the hotel personnel for their efforts to make a comfortable staying there.

                  We stayed in one of the suites which was absolutely breathtaking - the room was huge and the bath in front of the fireplace was impressive! The attention to detail was incredible, from the CDs and DVDs to the different size mugs for tea. The staff made the stay even better, ensuring nothing was too much trouble. A fantastic, highly recommended hotel.

                  It was pricey and is definitely a treat but you won't be disappointed.

                  Location, building, design, comfort, cleanliness, free delicious breakfast

                  The woman on reception at check-out wasn't incredibly helpful, half asleep. Not everything was available on the 24hr menu.

                  It is a lovely hotel to go for a special occasion. This is our second visit and we love it.

                  8.8

                  Pure class in both the common areas and the rooms. Fixtures, fittings and design beautifully executed. Probably the best I have stayed in this side of Asia. We definitely had the best 'tent' at Reading festival.

                  Aircon needed for summer.

                  Location excellent, staff friendly, English breakfast excellent and piping hot.

                  Room was very warm with no thermostat, selection if tv channels poor (3 Sky sports, bbc news, itv 1 & 2, bbc1 & 2and e4 thatsold Sky on a looped message). The private car park is 12 pounds a day, not 10 as advertised.

                  Excellent design. Room is superb. Doesn't feel like a hotel room. CD's and DVD's available in the room . No traffic as the hotel is located at a dead end street. Friendly and correct staff. Only 5 minutes from the city centre. I'll be back some day

                  8.2

                  I really enjoyed my stay at the Forbury Hotel. The staff were lovely and very welcoming. As a young couple we felt very much at ease. Loved the breakfast to the room in the morning - made a perfect start to the day.

                  Excellent service, friendly staff, impressive rooms and a great breakfast. A great break.

                  Managed parking is a bit of an inconvenience.

                  I celebrated my 70th birthday at the hotel with my husband and my family and some friends. Everything was superb. The suite we had was excellent. The restaurant served delicious food and the service was outstanding. I loved all of it, had a fanstatic birthday!!

                  Nothing I didn't like.
