Great price for a couple - use it as a stop over in Reading, on business in the area or just for a treat - either way can't go wrong for £45 for 2.
£45 instead of £129 for an executive room and full English breakfast for two people at the Mercure George Hotel - Save 65%
Fawlty Towers educated a generation on the right way of running a hotel. The essential lesson was do not have Basil Fawlty as the hotelier in charge of your investment. The short-fused comedy icon portrayed by John Cleese will go down in history as a marker for what an owner of a hotel shouldn't do. Luckily for us, very few of these hotels exist. Even luckier for our lucky lucky subscribers is the chance to stay at the Mercure George Hotel in Reading for just £45 instead of £129. Sounds like a good deal, right? It gets better: this deal is for two people to share an executive room, inclusive of a Full English breakfast, a fruit basket, exclusive use of a Nespresso coffee machine and free internet! Even that couldn't be ruined by Basil!
The George Hotel is believed to be the oldest existing building in Reading, dating back to at least as far as 1423. It was one of the major coaching inns between London and the West Country in the 18th century, and it still retains many of its wonderful original Coaching Inn features, including Tudor Archways and a very attractive Cobbled stone courtyard. The main entrance from King Street still contains some of the original timbers, and 18th and 19th century facades overlook the courtyard.
The George Hotel is the perfect retreat if you're looking for a bit of a break. The charming styling gives the hotel an opulence that is often lacking. With today's Groupon you can take a loved one, or a very close business partner, on a break for an evening to enjoy an executive room and a full English breakfast at the Dickens Restaurant (plus a whole lot more!) for just £45! That's a grand saving of 65% and this is another great Groupon!
