The brief encounter, that fleeting glance from across the platform, a longing to be with the one you shouldn't...Meet me outside the station at this gloriously converted rail hotel. You shouldn't have this much fun so close to Heathrow, but you will at Mal. You shouldn't find a train set in your room, or a bath big enough for two, for that matter.

I love the rooms here- always plenty of room and really comfortable. But it’s the staff that make it particularly enjoyable. I’ve been ther on a fairly regular basis and Manu at the bar is exceptionally good. He has quickly learned to anticipate what I want/need in terms of food

Had a really enjoyable stay here. The room was lovely and the staff very pleasant. We had one problem (which is why I’ve given it 4 stars and not 5) which was someone on reception ruining a birthday surprise, however they upgraded our room and it didn’t spoil our night.

Not that I am aware, there is a multi storey almost next door, but very expensive. They may have a discount scheme going with them.

The hotel is very close to Reading station.... I believe it has its own parking but if not there is a huge private car park next to to the station.
