Located in the historic part of town, next to the Abbey and opposite Forbury Gardens, The Roseate Reading is Reading’s leading, luxury boutique hotel. Priding itself on its attention to detail The Roseate Reading guarantees guests have a cherished stay.
Last year the hotel underwent a £3.5m refurbishment to introduce House. Located across the courtyard from the main building, House features an Aheli spa, coffee shop, Roasted, and 32 new rooms and suites.
The most recent addition to the hotel is the stunning Reading Room Restaurant, which opened this summer and showcases European cuisine made from the very best local, in season produce.
Overlooking the Forbury Gardens, The Roseate Reading is ideally located in the centre of town, just a five-minute walk from Reading train station (25-minute journey to London) and Reading’s extensive range of restaurants and shops.

The main Grade II listed building dates back to 1911 and was formerly used by lawyers working for Berkshire County Council. Original wooden panelling, cornice mouldings, marble flooring and vast fireplaces still remain and are elegantly entwined with more modern interior touches, including a tall Italian chandelier made of 86,000 beads which runs the full height of the staircase and sculptures by Claire Norrington.
The main hotel building features bold colours and rich furnishings whilst House, the more modern part of the hotel, located across the courtyard is more minimalist in style and features neutral colours.
