Do not recommend!
The place was not clean and it is very old. I do not recommend staying there and I will not stay there in future.

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.

Expect Allright
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.

Not so Great Expectations
Customer service was basic and all though breakfast was included the staff did not seem to take interest in the details of what you would like. For example you were asked if you wanted a full english once replied with yes they turned and walked away. There was no mention of what you get. They also advise that the breakfast is cooked to order this is not the case. 5 minutes after requesting breakfst it was ready. The toast was cold etc. The bathroom needed attention, the toilet was a liitle loose, the sink plug was detatched and the shower controlls were broken and the temperature didnt seem to go higher than warm. The kettle was full of limescale which was flaked off and floating in the water that seemed as though it had been there a short while. Not very pleasing especially on top of a very basic room, for the money I would say go else where. Parking is not available on the premises and I had to park in the shopping centre which added over £30 to my bill taking the total to £114. On a poitive note, breakfast was included (even though basic and not as advertised).
