Welcome to Reading






Flexible check-in/-out

Quick and hassle-free via our app (including 24/7 guest support). Or if you are feeling chatty, check in at the bar while you get your first drink.

Haute comfort cuisine

Food to make you smile. We do a mean burger, and much more. Pop by the Pentalounge, meet the locals and let the good times roll.

Thorough hygiene procedures

Our cleaning standards are a bit over-the-top, but you won’t notice a thing. We work (and scrub) hard so that you can leave all worries at the door.

Fine tunes and chill vibes

Our music playlist is carefully curated and changes every month. Forget what you know about “lobby music” and get ready to jam along.

Reading to London

If you are planning a trip to London and want to stay somewhere that avoids some of the commotion of the capital city, we can offer you the perfect solution. A great alternative to a hotel in London, Pentahotel Reading is just a ten-minute walk to Reading Station. Usually there are 611 trains per day that run between Reading and London, so you should have more than a few choices when it comes to what time you want to make your journey. Speaking of which, if you pick a fast train you can find yourself in central London in just 25 minutes, and tickets can be under £20, especially if you book them in advance. Easy!

Your room will be ready from 15:00 onwards, but you can hang out in the Pentalounge before that if you want.

Don't worry about hurrying, you've got until 12:00 to check out.

You can kickstart your day with our delicious breakfast buffet between 06:30 and 10:00 (10:30 on Sundays).

The Pentalounge is open daily for food from 12:00 all the way until 22:30. We've got dishes from Biff's, Little Bao Boy and Patty Guy, so there's loads to choose from!

We are able to give our guests at Pentahotel Reading 40% discount at the Q car park on Chatham Road just 3 minutes walk away. When you check out our staff will validate your ticket which you can then pay at the car park itself!

We have 4 wheelchair accessible rooms at Pentahotel Ipswich. Please contact the hotel directly for more information.

Your furry friend is cool to hang with us. Dogs and cats are allowed. It's £20 per stay.

The hotel gym stays open round the clock for all of you that want to get a late night/early morning session in.

We do offer room service! Our full menu is available between 12:00 and 22:30, and we even have a smaller menu that we can provide around the clock. Please note that ordering room service will incur a cost.

Of course, you'll find a speedy and stable connection in every room!

We are fully cashless and accept card payment only. This makes us safer, cleaner and greener (that's our two-cents worth anyway). Sorry cash, you are no longer king.
