Madejski, Reading

I recently had business in Reading and stayed at the Madejski Hotel; this is part of the Reading Football Club stadium complex. I always travel with the SatNav giving directions so the hotel was easy to find.

The Madejski is a modern hotel with everything that means. In a lot of ways this is a good thing, but the dining room is a large cavernous room surrounded by lots of glass.

This means all sounds in the dining room are amplified and echo loudly. Having just finished a five hour drive to get there I found dinner a somewhat tiring and annoying experience due to the noise level.

I was also somewhat restricted in terms of what I could order off the menu as the majority of items contained sauces or spices I don’t like. That said I did enjoy the burger although if I had stayed a second night then I’d have had to have had the burger again.

Breakfast was a buffet affair and was pretty good (I prefer buffet breakfasts as I can get exactly what I want to eat).

Overall, I’ll try to avoid the Madejski on any return trips to Reading.
