  • Took my son for his first ever professional football game here today. Easy to get to with coaches from train station to stadium costing only £2 return. Lovely atmosphere and very friendly staff and supporters. Also helped that Reading beat Cardiff city 3 -0. Great stadium, Reasonably priced fan shop, and nice hot food and drinks on offer.
  • The hotelroom was very nice and clean. The bed was great. Staff was polite, friendly and helpful. I would stay again. Rates for breakfast are really massively too high. A big disappointment was the gym and pool. They were extremely dirty
