A great house for a large family get together. We came for a wedding. Four parking spaces and two bathrooms. Which make it ideal for larger groups.

This was a very well situated property for what we needed, we filled the house up with guests and it suited fine. The layout of the property worked well and the rooms all offered a good size. Some rooms don't have wardrobe in which was a bit annoying as we're there for a wedding and had suits and dresses that needed hanging up. There were quite a few stains on the carpets but they were still very clean. There were signs of the possibility of stair gates but could not see this on the list of facilities available and these would have been helpful as we were travelling with a one year old and there aren't enough seats round the table to seat 9 people even though there are 9 sleeping spaces which I found odd and became awkward but overall it was a good stay. The shower was powerful and nice and hot which is always an added bonus!

Great place for a family to gather & exactly as represented online. Only 30 minutes from Legoland which was our destination.

We had a great time

Really lovely property. Very helpful communications and clear instructions. Well equiped and comfortable. Only negative would be street lighting very bright and some bedrooms very well lit even once blinds closed but still slept and good for kids.

Great house, a lot bigger than it looks in photos. Perfect for what we needed :)

Lovely place to stay! Had it for the weekend and we had all the necessary items we needed for the stay. Place was spacious and a quiet neighbourhood. Great communication from the team!

Great communication - called the day before to offer guidelines for check-in. Responded to queries without delay. The apartment was very comfortable and as described. All in all, a great stay.

The team are really helpful, when asking for late check out they was happy to help, house is in good condition and lovely garden.

The accommodation was great, upstairs has plenty of room and location was good and central with plenty of amenities. We had a call before our arrival to explain details and advise us of some things not working within the property - I really appreciated that they took the time to call directly rather than email! Lots of little extras like cleaning products, plenty of toilet roll, tea, coffee, hoover etc. which again are nice added touches! Agree with reviews blinds could be darker, didn't bother us really but I thikk people would struggle in lighter months. The top floor double and single bed room beds were very hard compared to the others but overall a lovely, smart and clean property with friendly, helpful and communicative hosts. We'd definitely return!

House was very nice. Clean tidy no issues would book again.

great place to stay

A great stay and perfect for what we needed. Will book again next year

Great hosts! Angelique and Kim are both top communicators, friendly, and respond very quickly to any questions. They anticipated all my check-in questions and even took the time to provide a courtesy phone call, to check we were all set up before arrival. The home is a great space: clean, tidy, nicely decorated (no clutter!), modern facilities; it has everything you'd expect for your stay. It's ideally situated for easy access to Reading and the M4. Parking is easy outside the house and the host provides free parking permits for your car(s). Make sure you read the instructions carefully on where to park (provided by the host), as the ticket wardens are very active in the area! Highly recommended!

This is a superb property with all of the essentials. Hostly, who manage the property, are professional yet friendly and had great communication throughout. If you are a light sleeper this may not be the best property for you as the area is very lit up and the blinds do not block out the street lights. The road that this is on was used as a race track both nights we stayed. Despite this, it’s a lovely place in a great location.

Lovely little place and very discreet yet so close to everything you need.

Everything you could need for a stay away from home. House exactly as advertised. Great communication throughout with hosts.

The house was even better than we had expected. It had so much character for a new build. Loved that there was a towel in each room as id forgotten mine. So happy with the whole experience

The house was clean, modern, and had nice touches present like the art and books. Great location - only a 10 minute drive to the centre of Reading. The phone call before our arrival was much appreciated and a personal touch. The follow up email had clear information re check in. The hosts were very helpful and quick to answer queries during our stay.

Lovely house . Would recommend

Great apartment and location. Decorated lovely with all day to day items (washing up liquid, tea bags etc provided). Communication with agents very easy.

Beautiful contemporary home....spacious over 3 floors...great top floor with en suite. £10 taxi into Reading...definitely follow instructions from host as not all taxis know it. Hosts were very communicative from date of booking and very accommodatingPillows are dreamy!!

House exactly as advertised. Excellent communication throughout. House had everything we needed and more. Was spotless and nicely furnished. Multiple parking spaces were very helpful for our family group. Hostly were a pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend.

Had a lovely stay, the host's were great with communication.

Lovely accommodation and very spacious inside. Some neighbours were a bit noisy on the Saturday night but this may just be a one off. We didn't need anything re kitchen equipment and home was clean and generally well maintained. Recommended.

We honestly had a great time in Reading. The flat was very chic and spacious. The location is excellent to. We definitely will consider staying here again.

We stayed for a weekend with the family and it was the perfect space for a group and a brilliant base for a short stay. Hostly were very responsive and very quick to answer making us feel very settled.

Amazing house with modern decor and lush design. Would visit again and recommend to anyone looking to book

The house is lovely. Very clean, spacious and bright.Great location, there are few playgrounds near the property which our kids enjoyed much. We had a great time. Highly recomend it.

Great house, spacious, clean and tidy

The Elephant Court is a stylish, warm, clean and spacious place, and there is a nice walk nearby. We had a great and enjoyable experience to stay there. The host is so nice, quick response and thoughtful touch, sure would like to return next time.

Stylish and house with cosy bedrooms and clean and modern bathrooms and comfortable living areas. Easy to get to from m4 motorway and also explore Reading and surrounding areas.

Lovely house. Lots of space.

We stayed at this property for two nights. The property was exceptionally clean in a lovely new development. The hosts were fantastic! Overall we enjoyed our stay and happily we would go back again.

Clean and spaciouse house, easy parking and the hosts are always on the other end of the phone if you need them

A perfect pad with comfy beds, hosts communication was fantastic and clear. Home instructions left ready for us, clean and tidy on arrival and couldn’t ask for more, would definitely stay again.

Fantastic space - warm, comfy, and spacious.

Elephant Court was exactly as described. Communication and support outstanding. The hosts went to the extra trouble of finding us two cots. I was particularly struck by the comfort of the beds. Will definitely stay here again

Lovely modern build, new estate, easy access to city by Uber. Clean and spacious, nice design. Local supermarket close by, would stay again.

The apartment was great, well located, easy to find access fairly straight forward with the instructions. Great communication also. Plenty of space.

Great place to stay, quiet and up market area with easy access to Reading Centre

This was a really great house for our family get together. The bedrooms are large and airy, the beds are firm and comfortable with crisp linens and soft towels and the bathrooms are high spec. The location is great for getting into town by bus or car, there is a supermarket close by to pick up the essentials. The hosts were warm, super responsive and helpful and we had no problem checking in and out. I forgot a suit I had left in the house and they were very helpful in locating it immediately and holding it for me even though it was Sunday. There were a couple of small details about leaving out welcome pack information with WiFi code etc but I'm sure that will be easy to remedy for future guests. Thanks so much!
