We stayed in a suite in the ‘house’ part of the hotel. Slightly less glamorous building, but the room was modern, spacious and comfortable. We had an amazing dining experience in the reading room and an awesome breakfast in bed. Staff were lovely and attentive. We walked down the river to the Bull in Sonning for lunch (would highly recommend) and the river walk was easily accessible from the hotel. If we’re ever in Reading again, we’ll definitely come back!

I have been staying at the Roseate over the last four weeks. The central location is perfect. The town centre is a short walk away. The hotel is truly excellent. I have stayed in the main hotel throughout, in a variety of rooms. They are described as "luxury'' rooms and very much live up to that label. They are beautifully decorated and furnished. Each has its own character and design. Bathrooms are modern, clean and very inviting. The cleanliness in the rooms is faultless and the housekeeping staff are very attentive to any requests. The restaurant and bar offer quality food and service. The thing that sets this hotel apart is the exceptional nature of the staff. I cannot recall receiving service of this level at any hotel in the UK. It is quite apparent that all of the staff take real pride in what they do and in the organization that they represent. Guests are treated as individuals and the staff make a point of remembering names of guests. The staff are very keen to "go the extra mile" and have "can do" attitude. I reserve special praise for the front desk staff. In particular, I should like to name 'Nyssa', who has made a huge effort to make me feel welcome throughout my stay. She has been unfailingly polite and courteous. She is charming and most helpful. She clearly enjoys her role and takes real pride in providing a very high level of service to her guests. She is plainly a huge asset to the organisation. Overall, this is a gem of a hotel. My stay has been faultless.

Very comfortable good clean hotel good food. Good staff, friendly helpful. Well worth exploring the Abbey ruins next to the hotel . If you don’t know Reading get clear instructions from the hotel on directions. Reading one way system is not easy.

Whole Room smelt like a toilet but bed was comfortable. Bathroom tidy but not clean. Walls are very thin, heard sneezing in the next room. Balcony room in annexe but didn’t feel private as it was overlooked by main building.
