We recently visited Pentahotel Reading, a trendy and urban hotel in keeping with its city location. Surrounded by shops, bars and restaurants and near to Reading University.

As you walk into the Pentahotel there is a constant buzz with the funky Pentalounge and its 24hr bar doubling up as reception. This space was designed by Italian architect Matteo Thun and incorporates a steak & burger restaurant, meeting spot and chill-out area with a billiard table and games console.

Pentahotel ReadingAndrew, the Sales Manager took us on a tour of the meeting space and to see a couple of bedrooms. On the ground floor, there are 11 conference rooms ranging from a Boardroom for a dozen up to the largest suite; Penta 9-11 which can hold 250 Theatre or 180 for a Dinner and comes with its own foyer. The next largest room Penta 1+2 also offers its own space for breaks.

The 5 floors above are where you can find the 206 bedrooms, a mix of doubles and twins and a junior suite thrown in for good measure.

The Junior Suite located on the sixth floor has its own lounge, dining area, a bath big enough for 4 and a pinball machine (because why not…). All bedrooms have a large flatscreen Sky TV, use of WIFI and access to online magazines and newspapers.

Following our show around, we had dinner in the restaurant, a delicious cut of steak for me, finished off with a warm cookie and ice cream dessert which was to die for (no exaggerating here ).

The Pentahotel Reading is easily accessible by train with two stations within a 10 minute walk but delegates can also easily travel by car. The hotel has a reduced rate with a local multi-story car park.

Pentahotels are located in 29 locations around the world including China, Germany and Belgium. In the UK there is a Pentahotel located in Birmingham, Derby, Inverness, Ipswich and Warrington .
