Special Offer: Our hotel partner this year is The Roseate, Reading. You can save 25% off your booking by following the "Book My Room" button below.
The Hotel prides on its attention to detail, an attitude that is realised from the hotel personnel to the facilities available to make your stay cherished and memorable. Whether it is the 86,000 Italian-glass beads in the chandelier that hangs from the top of the building or the plush fabrics and swanky wallpapers, our meticulous design sense is ubiquitous in maintaining an uplifted ambience. The Roseate Reading was originally Shire Hall for the Berkshire County Council. The building, along with its wide hallways, vaulted ceilings, cornice mouldings and the original lift shaft have all been precisely restored to their original glory. To revive the old world charm of the Shire Hall, its council chamber, Eden along with its imposing fireplace and elaborate wood carvings on the doors and mantelpiece have all been restored to their past beauty. The Roseate Reading is a culmination of opulence and warmth for our guests.
