"Great B and B"
This was our base for a local party, and it was a home from home. The room itself was well equipped and the bed was very comfortable. It was a lovely surprise to find the room had an ensuite bathroom. Brian very kindly picked us up after the party finished. Very kind!Breakfast was just right, and the home made marmalade was delicious! Read less

Brian and Alma wanted to make your stay as comfortable as possible. They very kindly let my children use the shower in our room, even thought they weren't staying there, which was very kind of them.

This property redefines B&B ! Beautifully appointed rooms, with all the little extra you expect from a 5 star hotel, plus more. Excellent quality beds, a coffee machine in the room with nibbles, a docking station for I-phone, slippers and bath robes etc. Brian and Alma are wonderful hosts and we will definitely stay again when

Hi Phil and Jan. Thank you for your fantastic review. We are so pleased that you appreciated all the "creature comforts" that we provide. Phil has a great taste in music (same as Brian's) and we had lots to chat about. We look forward to seeing you both again when you next visit your son and family in Spencers Wood. Best wishes from Alma and Brian

"Nicest B&B we have ever stayed at!"
We had a beautiful night stay here after a long flight. The room and bed was stunning, the bathroom was super clean, modern and the house itself was lovely. Brian and Alana made us feel welcome, made calls for us to arrange dinner despite the late hour, then made us the most beautiful breakfast the next morning! Would stay again in a heartbeat. Read less

It is very close to where I work, just five minutes drive, so avoiding traffic is a massive plus point. But the best thing has to be the beds! On both occasions I have slept very, very well.

Response from The Cricketers:
Thank you Joanne for writing such a great review and we are delighted that you enjoyed the comfortable Vi-Spring beds. However the biggest compliment is that you made a return visit. We look forward to welcoming you again to The Cricketers when you are next working in Reading. Very best wishes from Alma and Brian.
