@Penta Hotel Reading

Getaway NYE - a New Year's Hotel Experience like no other!

Why have we moved hotels?

If you’ve ever been with us at Penta, then you probably need no convincing! If you’ve joined us more recently, then you may be wondering why the change of location!?

Whilst we have thoroughly enjoy the surroundings of Devere’s country manor house over the past three years, we’re 1000% confident that the moment they walk through the doors, those who have never experienced Penta Hotel will realise how much they’ve missed over the 10 years we were there!

Please read on for further details.
