    • Couple

      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 individual features and quality of the rooms

      Shame staff werent a bit more personable or it would have been perfect

      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.

    • Couple
      9.6

      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.

    • Couple
      8.8

      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.

    • Couple
      9.6

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

    • Group of friends
      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.

    • Older travelers
      8.8

      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.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      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

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      Our stay at the hotel was comfortable and adequate but the light in the room was very dim need some adequate light to see in both rooms at the suite THE STAFF WAS EXTREMELY GRACIOUS AND SO VERY HELPFUL WE ENJOYED OUR STAY THE COST OF THE STAY WAS FAIR THE FACILITY WAS VERY CLEAN AND NOTHING BUT GOOD COMMENTS.

    • Couple
      9.6

      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.

    • Family with children
      10.0

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

      Managed parking is a bit of an inconvenience.

    • Older travelers
      9.6

      decor, and bar

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      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.
