Very clean,spacious and well maintained apartment. Lot of parking space. Hosts were friendly and communicated well and quick

lovely housesituated on lovely housing estate. quiet and everything you need is local I.e. park, shops and bus routes into town

We had a nice night everything was perfect close to morison and easy access to the M4 . Thank you soo much will definitely book it again if we had to stay in reading.

This house was excellent. A well appointed kitchen, excellent space and lovely and clean. The beds were comfortable and the house was very warm, possibly a little too warm at times even though we had the hearing turned right down. We would thoroughly recommend this property.

brilliant location, lovely neighbourhood

Nice place to stay close to Reading town centre. Hostly were very helpful.

Lovely place to stay. Quiet and nice and convenient for Reading and the M4. The house was lovely and clean and comfortable and well equipped. Check in was easy. We had a couple of queries and the hosts were very quick to respond and help us. Would highly recommend

I want to thank all the team at Hostly for providing us with the best stay we could of hoped for. The house we stayed in was amazing as described and we were offered an impeccable service all round. I want to give a special mention to Jack for helping us with some issues on our end, he was extremely helpful. Hostly were brilliant from start to finish, I would definitely recommend and hope to stay again in the future.

Great communication from the hosts. The accommodation was clean and warm when we arrived and check-in was so easy. This was the perfect solution for our trip!

Lovely accommodation in a quiet residential area. The rooms were a good size and clean. Communication with the host was great as they contacted us prior to our arrival to explain everything and were responsive whenever we had any questions. Nothing to complain about really. Had a lovely stay.

Quite nice, clean house. Hosts were easy to communicate with and very helpful. Good area that felt quite safe. Close to supermarkets and lots of options for ordering food. Would return in the future.

Had a great time here, the place was very clean, loved all the little touches like the board game and the decor. Check in was really straight forward and easy, the hosts were super helpful. Can’t fault anything.

Lovely weekend in reading. Property was clean comfortable and very well equipped for what you need. Location is just south of reading. Very easy bus link from within Kenner island 4 mins into reading centre.

Good one night stay in a perfect central location around lots of places.

Great little place and, as someone who uses Airbnb for most holidays, the communication was so refreshing! Everything was super easy and nothing was too much trouble. Will absolutely stay in one of Hostly’s places next time we are in the area!

We had a very comfortable stay at Puffin Way. The property was comfortable and well equipped with good parking, very easily accessed from the M4 and close to the city centre (£9 in a taxi). The hosts were really easy to communicate with and were so helpful in accommodating us for a last minute booking when our previously booked accommodation fell through on the day. Thank you so much!

Nice place to stay. It is quiet and clean for family and business purpose.

I had a lovely stay with a few friends over the weekend. The hosts were really helpful and easy to communicate with, and the location worked out perfectly for us going in and out of Reading Town centre. We will be staying again!

It’s a very nice place in a quite and peaceful town. I stayed with my family and kids just loved the Nintendo :) Thoroughly clean and comfortable. Highly recommendable.

This house is amazing. Great location with lots of things in walking distance. The hosts were very very accommodating with fast and great communication and even went and bought a fan for each room during the heatwave. Everywhere was clean I would recommend this to everyone and I’ll definitely be staying again. There was myself, husband, two young girls and a small baby and there was more than enough room.

We used the as quiet prep for our racing at Henley Royal Regatta. It was really comfortable, quietly located with easy parking and we were very reassured by Adam’s speedy and helpful communications. Stay here. You won’t be disappointed.

Amazing location and even better host!

We come to Reading every year and usually stay in the centre. We were a bit unsure about the location at first but in fact it worked out much better for us. An easy bus trip into town meant we didn’t bother to drive & park so avoided the cost and traffic. We were also delighted with the local amenities- two parks a stones throw away to amuse the children, a convenience store and cafe in the square all equally close. The house and garden were the perfect space for us - myself, husband, two children and my parents, it suited us all. Adam and Jack made the experience seamless and were super hosts. Beforehand I asked if there was a cot and Adam replied no but we’ll get one - what more could you ask for? They were always quick to respond and got the balance just right with leaving us to enjoy our stay while being on hand if need be. We would definitely recommend staying at Adam and Jack’s place and plan to go back next year. Thanks guys!

A well equipped and clean space. Would definitely recommend.

Great place. Super communication. Really great to chat before we stayed - nice touch. Super place. We will be back hopefully.

Very nice house very clean. Very good communication with the hosts

We had a great stay here.

This is a great place to stay, we were only 4 people but it could be great for 6 or more. Always clean, and great communication with Adam & Jack - they always send an email and sms to check everything is OK and are really fast to respond when I needed something else.

Great location and great hosts who go above and beyond to ensure you have a good stay Recommended and will use again when I visit Reading next

Really great place, photos don’t do it justice. Very comfortable. Hosts were great at responding and offering advice for restaurant. Would highly recommend.

Great location, easily accessible. Jack and Adam kept in touch and the self check in/self check out was very simply and convenient. The house was well stocked (plenty of things like toilet roll, washing up liquid etc). Would stay again.

Nice house and in convenient location

Great place to stay, very good communication with quick responses. Defiantly be booking again

Great place to stay. Clean and modern, nice neighbourhood, easy to get anywhere

All the essentials provided. Beds comfortable and house clean.
