Great hotel in a good location 10 minute walk into bars restaurants and shops but directly opposite the Oracle shopping centre. The hotel had a paid car park which is £8.00 for a overnight stay, which is good for the south of England. The hotel has nice large rooms, very clean with plenty of storage space and very comfy bed....

Room was much bigger than expected, nice to have extra space Very clean with plenty storage and facilities Overall pleased with stay and would stay again for that price (£52) but if too much more I would have perhaps looked at other options Felt safe going with them as a brand as you know what to expect and service is...

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay. I'm really sorry to hear that the initial room that you were booked into was noisy and hot and I can understand how inconvenient this must have been. I am glad to hear that the team did move you to another room when you mentioned this to you...

I enjoyed a very pleasant stay in reading at the Premier Inn. Very close to the place of work and town centre. The corridors were quiet in the daytime, which was good as I was working at night. I would definitely stay again.

Second visit to this Premier Inn and was a little disappointed, especially for the money paid out. The room looked a little tired and need of maintenance (reported) and the room/bathroom cleaning could have been better. Also the 'unlimited' breakfast was limited by the amount they took the order for to cook. Still, staff were great as previously and post...

First time staying in. Premier Inn and it was a great experience. Fantastic value, especially considering it was New Years Eve. Bed was very comfy, the room was very clean and the breakfast was delicious.

Bed and room were good, bathroom was average. Comfy bed good tv but food was unreal and would say to people not to bother paying for it. Would stay again but like I said wouldn't pay for the food. Food was cold and the juices were warm

We choose to book into the Premier Inn fairly last minute when going to a NYE party at friends in the local area. The hotel is a stones throw from the city centre bars, shops and restaurants. Whilst located near the mainly ring road, we had a room at the front and experienced no road noise from the room at...

A great location with it being near the Oracle shopping centre, especially with it being very close to the Riverside restaurants, making it easy access to walk from the hotel. We had two issues with the location on route to the hotel though, Readings’ traffic control and the general traffic towards the Oracle. Reading is probably a hotspot for accidents...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ideally located in the heart of Reading opposite the Oracle shopping centre, just 15 minutes drive from M4. The train station is a 10 minute walk and it's just 5 minutes walk for nightlife entertainment. For sport the Madejski stadium is nearby. Our Reading Central Premier Inn has everything you'd expect, incredibly comfy beds in every room and an integrated restaurant serving a mix of traditional and contemporary dishes. ... more   less
