The dirtiest place I've ever stayed!
I've stayed at many places in world and I'm from Bulgaria and know what is a dirty place but this beat my expectation of dirtiest places I can imagine! Тhe water in the kettle for heating was half full when enter the room and had mold in it. The toilet was not cleaned from previews stay and everything was so dirty! Hopefully, the sheets was clean otherwise I considered to stay on the street! Even in Bulgaria such kind of hotel will be closed by corresponding institutions! I can understand if this was a hut, but paying 100 pounds and stay in such hotel seems a crime :). Guys, have NO expectations from Great Expectations hotel!

Good value stay
Like other reviewers I thought there were a few maintenance issues to deal with, but as the hotel had the decorators in whilst I was there, perhaps other travellers will find things in better order. Highlights were the helpful friendly staff and good straightforward food. My room had some design issues which would make it difficult to clean really thoroughly, but it was comfortable enough and good value.

Well located, close to Reading station and market place. There is pub at the ground floor, but during my weekdays stay it was quite. They got decent speed Internet and breakfast is good too.

As expected from inner-city inn style hotel
Generally I was pleased with the Great Expectations. The service from staff both at the bar and at reception was great; friendly and polite throughout. My room (5 on 1st floor) was ok. The Shower mixer tab was damaged, and the soap stand had old soap scum on it so not been cleaned. The curtains were a cross between ye olde chinz and sun bleach faded. The TV remote was not for the TV in my room so couldnt change the channel from news 24. As I was only one floor above the bar with live "music" it was quite loud but not too loud not to be able to sleep. Inclusive breakfast was OK. It is served in the bar, but was clean and laid out in preparation for guests arriving. There was a selection of Kellog's cereals and juices/coffee on the counter to help yourself. Cooked breakfast including danish and full english was also available, but you had to ask as no menu was available. I ordered poached egg and sausage with toast. I got a fried egg and sausage toasted sandwich but I just broke it down again to its components for consumption. It's not what I asked for but was nice enough. I would stay here again as the price outweighed any of the cons detailed above.
