Clean and comfortable, but how this hotel retains 4 * is questionable. Basic facilities with very high prices for food drink etc. Staff could not have been nicer though, very professional and courteous at all times. A bit of a tired building from the early 80's

"nice hotel but impossible to find hotel car park."
The hotel is located in a pedestrian only area. The roads in central Basingstoke are a complex series of one-way streets. We knew exactly where the hotel was but could not get near it by road. We eventually found a short-stay car-park and walked to hotel to ask for directions. After another circuit of the one-way system, we eventually found the correct turn-off. Receptionist was very helpful. Room good. Breakfast OK.

We have stayed at the Apollo 3 times before with no problems . There were too many little things that made us annoyed this time not to mention. The first thing was, outside our room there was a ceiling tile missing and underneath there was a bucket all weekend, it was only removed around an hour or so before we left. When we went into our room it looked a little worn and in need of updating. I started to fill the kettle and noticed black bits floating in the water. The element had burnt out , so had to walk along the corridor to the house keepers room to get it replaced. The room was very hot all night despite turning off the towel heater. We only noticed in the morning that there was only one bath and hand towel for two of us, no bath mat either. There was a bottle of bathroom cleaner left in the bathroom as well, oh and when my husband tried to move the shower head, it came off in his hand. We reported this to staff on the way to breakfast and they were very apologetic. Returned to the room after breakfast , which was excellent by the way and went to lock our valuables in the safe, but we couldn't use it as it was locked . We went out for the day and on returning to the room went to make a cup of tea only to find seven sachets of coffee, fourteen sachets of sugar and no tea. Last but not least , the room was very noisy as near a busy road so not the relaxing weekend we were hoping for. Sorry for the bad review but we were disappointed.

I stayed at the hotel for 2 night, I had a pleasant stay. The hotel was very well maintained and had nice areas to walk around. Presentation was great. The dinner choices I didn't find that great and reception in the room was poor, but apart from that I would recommend.

It is no surprise this hotel is popular; Farnborough has nothing going for it so the locals seem to have embraced the chance to have an upscale pub to watch the football with decent gym attached. Beloved by wannabe WAGs and TOWIE types, it is nonetheless clean, stylish and cheap.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ibis in Reading, UK. The location was excellent, close to shopping, restaurants and transportation. The rooms are small, but very clean. Our room was on floor 12 and toward the back of the hotel. This made for quiet, peaceful resting. The only negative issue we had was that our room key, which also activates use of the elevator, had to be re-keyed or programmed numerous times. No big deal, but annoying. Nevertheless I would recommend others to stay here.
