So convenient

Everything went smoothly with our trip to london to see the lion king so all I can say is that I will have no hesitation using Hotel Direct again, it is so convenient to book a break this way and takes away all the hassle of buying separate tickets for everything, highly recommended!

Easy booking

Easy booking, just great.

First time user

Having never used hoteldirect before I was sceptical as there are a lot of sites that offer a good price but have hidden charges when you book. having booked at a cheap rate I realised I had made a mistake with my train times. (completely my fault that I didn`t check) and contacted their customer services, imagining it would take a few days if anyone got back to me at all.within a few hours I had a reply from a real person that amended my mistake and secured me reserved seating on the new booking.couldn`t be more pleased with the service I received and have already recommended them to everyone.Will 100% be using this service again.

From booking to delivery

From booking to delivery there were no problems at all. I was very impressed that someone had contacted the hotel to confirm all details of our stay and gave directions to the hotel from the train station. A very good choice and will definitely use HD again.

Why book a Reading hotel?


This large town in Berkshire is a shopper's paradise with everything you could possibly want in one place. Why not take a stroll along the busy high street with its independent stores, quirky boutiques and high end Jewellers before enjoying the Oracle shopping mall with its fashion brands and choice of eateries. If you are looking to explore the rich history of the town there is no better place to start than the Museum of Reading, a masterpiece of Gothic Victorian architecture, which houses Roman artefacts as well as the world's only full size facsimile of the Bayeux Tapestry. Another must see are the remains of the majestic Abbey, which for 400 years was the political, economic and social centre of Reading. If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle there is no better place than the Forbury Gardens, a delightful example of Victorian formal gardens, they still follow the original layout of 1855. With its great location there are a number of family friendly attractions within a short drive of reading such as Windsor Castle, the Queens official residence and the Legoland theme park.
