Novotel Hotels in Reading
Browse hotels in Reading
Reading is rich in history and culture, being an important centre in the medieval period and the location of the annual rock music festival. If you’re the town for business, and looking for hotels in Reading, our Novotel is well located in the middle of town. If you’re planning a weekend away or just a day trip from our Reading Novotel, then look no further than Basildon Park. A 20-minute drive from our hotel, this National Trust site is well worth a visit, with the 18th century Grade 1 listed building which was actually used in filming for the hit TV drama Downton Abbey; fans will be able to take the daily guided tour. In addition to the house, visitors can ramble around the surrounding rose gardens, lose themselves in the mini-maze, or just explore the 400 acres of Basildon Park’s grounds. For those looking for something to do in the centre of Reading, it is well worth spending a couple of hours in the city’s museum, inside the town hall. Free to enter, the museum is home to a diverse and fascinating range of historically important artifacts, including the UK’s only copy of the famous Bayeux Tapestry, many archeological finds from excavations from a nearby Roman Town, and the history of Reading itself – from the 6th century up until the modern day. As with all of our hotels, in Reading’s Novotel kids stay at no cost for the duration of your stay – making your well-earned weekend away that bit more affordable.
