Hotel Description

Not everything worth knowing about in England has to happen in London. The Berkshire town of Reading might not have as many stylish, functionally modern luxury boutique hotels as the capital, but it’s got the Forbury, which is all of the above, and a listed landmark building as well, right on the edge of Forbury Gardens, in the town center. (Which, incidentally, is only 23 minutes from the capital by train — and 40 minutes from Highclere Castle, for you Downton Abbey fanatics.)

Heritage hotels often have poky little rooms, but the Forbury was more thoroughly renovated than most, and its floor plan is entirely modern — the superior rooms are by no means small, and the suites are downright expansive. All have plentiful historical character, along with all the comforts of a modern hotel, including underfloor heating and walk-in showers.

A private cinema seats up to 30 — not every luxury hotel can say that — and Cerise is among Reading’s top restaurants, and is accompanied by the Cerise Bar and an elaborate afternoon tea service. It’s an attractive hotel, a comfortable hotel, and if it’d be a contender in the capital, in Berkshire it’s a champion.
