Malmaison Reading

Reading, Berkshire





Choice of room types at the stylish Reading Mal, just 25 minutes from London - breakfast and a two-course dinner included

The Malmaison Hotel, Reading is located in home county Berkshire, smack bang in the centre and right next to the train station. It is, in fact, a dashingly converted old rail hotel which, in its transformation, is now an achingly hip boutique affair with 75 glorious rooms in a city brimming with activity.

With rooms including giant working train-sets, the emphasis at Malmaison hotel is luxury fun with a railroad theme. Each room is modelled upon famous locomotives and no splendour is spared. Imagine giant teak baths, grand four-poster beds and ‘drench’ showers with room names like ‘The Orient Express’ and ‘The Rocket’. In short, the Malmaison is simply rip-roaringly cool.

The hotel itself boasts a brasserie and a bar specialising in quality British dining and dark and stormy lounging- cocktail in hand. The decor is super stylish with an industrial feel- imagine exposed brickwork and metal piping. The food is fresh and straight from the hands of some of Berkshire’s most talented chefs. With other little luxuries like late-night nibbles and free exclusive toiletries, the Malmaison is the perfect cheeky getaway. Our offers include a choice between the Standard or Superior rooms, with breakfast and a two-course dinner from a set menu.
