Sexy hotels like throwing sexy parties! We know all the ingredients to throw you a lavishly memorable event that your guests will be talking about for a long time. From dinner and dancing in Cerise Restaurant, to a funky party in The Penthouse, or perhaps a more leisurely afternoon tea in the Library, we can offer and tailor it all. We can even show a video footage or a slide show to your friends in our Cinema Room.
For large events, the hire of the Cerise restaurant for up to 100 guests makes a stunning venue. With your own private entrance and taking over the whole of the basement floor, you can party with dinner and dancing with an outside area in real style.
Our dedicated party planners ensure that whether it’s a lunch for four, dinner for 35 or a drinks reception for 80, the event will be organised with total panache, zeal and professionalism.

The Penthouse is the perfect place for private business meetings, as a contemporary space to entertain in or simply as the ultimate apartment for luxurious living. Full length glass windows provide spectacular views across the city skyline with generous balconies. With its own sauna, Bang and Olufsen sound and visual system and luxurious interior, The Penthouse is the ultimate place to meet in Reading.
With as much or as little service as is required, The Penthouse affords total privacy or the full works – our chef can even prepare your food in the privacy of a fully-equipped kitchen
