Wake up in a grand townhouse hotel with a prime location in the heart of Reading, including breakfast, a spa treatment and optional three-course dinner

Formerly The Forbury Hotel, The Roseate is an imposing five-star stay in the heart of Reading, effortlessly fitting among the impressive surrounding buildings. Lauded by the Evening Standard as 'the UK's sexiest townhouse hotel', its pillared entrance sits atop wide stone steps - reminiscent of a grand theatre or town hall, giving guests a tempting taste of what’s to come.

Large engraved wooden doors lead into a monochrome tiled-floor reception, complete with arched hallway, chaise lounges and a grand piano. Decorated in a rich and eclectic colour palette, the main interior maintains a subtle elegance where comfort, a sense of fun and a warm atmosphere preside. Sink into deep velvety settees and chairs at your every turn or take some time out in the pretty inner courtyard.

Behind those dramatic Georgian windows, The Roseate features individually styled bedrooms with walk-in showers, award-winning dining and a locally acclaimed cocktail bar. Reading boasts boundless country parks, gardens and museums besides endless hours of shopping opportunities at The Oracle.
