Lovely hotel

My room opened up into a large garden behind the hotel. The room itself was clean and well appointed. Would definitely stay again if needing a place near Reading.

Back to an old friend

Posted Jun 11, 2014 on Hotels.com
I've been staying in pangbourne off and on for the last 10 years of my working life, having worked for IT firms in Theale and Reading. Pangbourne is an ideal location as it has a good choice of places to eat amd is a short trip into reading and on to the city if you have to. There aren't too many places to stay, but this is academic, because the elephant is excellent. It's a boutique style hotel, with big rooms, fantastic beds, bar, restaurant, etc. The only downside to this place is the fact that lots of other travelling business folk also know of it and stay for the same reasons - so if you leave it til the last minute you may have to look elsewhere (as I did the week after this stay). Staff are pretty helpful, breakfast is good, bar meals ok - restaurant better. Considering the price and location, you'd be mad to pay almost double for the chain hotels in around Reading centre.

Great for our wedding night

Posted Apr 27, 2014
Pros: Comfortable, good parking
Location: Pangbourne is a lovely village, great pub food at the Swan.
We had a great stay at the Elephant after our wedding. We received a free upgrade to a lovely suite which was very comfortable and luxurious. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we wish we could have stayed more than one night!

Cozy rooms with comfortable beds conveniently located above its pub. Breakfast was delicious and INCLUDED. The bar tenders were friendly and helpful, and catered to everything the bride-to-be needed. They did a great job setting up the venue and transforming it in to a disco for the dance party.

Affordable hotel

Posted Jan 28, 2014
Very good hotel with very accommodating pleasant staff. Rooms were nicely appointed in a colonial quality manner. Wonderful shower and luxury towels. Only reason not to give it maximum score is its proximity to very busy road. Would certainly recommend it
