Book a stay in one of Berkshire’s best health clubs and spas

Be it for a quick weekend getaway or a longer stay, we truly believe that Regency Park Hotel is one of the best health and fitness clubs in Berkshire.

Our health club can only be used by members or residents, and offers the kind of peaceful surroundings that can often be hard to find in public health clubs and spas.

What can you access as one of our health club or spa users?

Just a few of the facilities available include a 17-metre swimming pool, steam and sauna room and fully equipped fitness suite.

The suite is a fitness junkie’s paradise in itself. With personal training, computerised fitness consultations and a wide array of Technogym exercise equipment to take advantage of, the opportunities to perfect your 'body beautiful' really are endless here.

A choice of classes also take places from Monday to Saturday, encompassing everything from circuit training to aqua aerobics.

After something a bit more relaxing?

If the main purpose of your break is to kick back and relax, then you are definitely still looking in the right place here at Regency Park Hotel.

Our spa offers a wide range of holistic treatments, including manicures, pedicures, facials, massages and even reflexology.

We also offer St. Tropez spray tanning, among many other sought-after treatments, so you really can be sure of having your every beauty and relaxation need catered for by Regency Park Hotel's seasoned professionals.

Feeling stuck for choice?

We don’t blame you. Our spa break packages may point you in the right direction, however.  

At the time of typing, you can choose from a Mini Spa Getaway, Spa Break Away or Weekend Retreat Spa Break. The latter two options are available as a one or two night break, and all three packages offer interesting additional choices in terms of treatments and access to the health club facilities.

Whatever it is about us that catches your eye, we hope you choose Regency Park Hotel as your accommodation for a few nights, and not merely as your health club or spa!

After all, all of our rooms here at Regency Park Hotel are fully equipped with features and facilities including free wireless broadband, televisions and ironing facilities – you may even benefit from concessionary rates.

As a guest here, you also get to make use of our award-winning Watermark restaurant, which caters to all tastes and dietary requirements.

Interested? Get in touch today to find out more about our health club and spa, or if you have any further queries about Regency Park Hotel.


Choose our hotel to make your meetings and events truly memorable 

Everyone wants the meetings that they host and attend to be productive, enjoyable and in short, memorable for all of the right reasons.

Many hotels offering meeting facilities can be disappointing in this regard, which is why we have ploughed considerable investment in recent years into our your own corporate amenities here at Regency Park Hotel.

What type of event do you have in mind?

Whatever the nature of your event - a simple employee get-together, team-building event, formal meeting, conference or even product launch - we can cater for your most specialised requirements with aplomb here at Regency Park Hotel.

You may know of us as one of the leading wedding venues in Berkshire, or you may have popped into our health club and spa from time to time. Alternatively, you may have stayed here, or for that matter, never even heard of us! Whatever - in this piece, we thought we would outline exactly what makes Regency Park Hotel such a befitting choice for a meeting or event.

Take advantage of our business centre...

That’s right – people enjoy using us as a venue for their meetings and events so much that we created our very own Business Centre. This newly refurbished venue boasts a cafe and a lounge that allows delegates to take a break from their business ventures and stretch their legs or grab a bite to eat.

Choose from a generous range of meeting rooms

Regency Park Hotel boasts 10 meeting rooms of various sizes, which can accommodate as few as four delegates or as many as 200.

Every room benefits from natural daylight and extensive air conditioning, and can be tailored to suit a range of events including interviews, training courses and even exhibitions. However, unlike a lot of other venues, Regency Park Hotel also has outdoor space that can be used to host anything from car launches and barbeques to team building activities.

Work with our brilliant meetings team

Remember – we don’t just host events or meetings of a business nature. As a matter of fact, it could be anything from a private dinner to a gala ball that you ultimately have in mind - we will be able to cater for your most specialised needs much the same.

Whatever kind of meeting you choose to host with us, our friendly, diligent and professional team members will do their utmost to make sure everything runs smoothly, so that you can focus on what matters most – your event or meeting.

For more information about the many merits of holding your next meeting or event with us, why not contact the friendly and professional Regency Park Hotel team today?


What is there to do near Regency Park Hotel?

We assure that you’ll have a splendid time at Regency Park Hotel, regardless of what you decide to get up to; be it taking advantage of one of the finest  health and fitness clubs in Berkshire, hosting a party with us or even spending your wedding day here.

However, we completely understand if you want to thoroughly explore the area – there are dozens of interesting things to do, after all. We’ve compiled a list of some of the highlights here.

Nature lovers – prepare to be stuck for choice...

Regency Park Hotel is situated within the peaceful and tranquil Berkshire countryside, so it’s only natural that there’s plenty of lush scenery and interesting wildlife to enjoy.

The Nature Discovery Centre is situated in the nearby town of Thatcham – the name says it all, really. It’s suitable for all of the family and is abundant with fascinating birdlife to view, in addition to playing host to a range of entertaining activities for younger members of the family.

Beale Park is situated just 10 miles down the road in Reading, and is home to a wide array of critters and creatures, including meerkats and peacocks. There are also plenty of opportunities here for younger family members to let off some steam in the several playgrounds situated within the park.

For something a bit wilder, the UK Wolf Conservation Trust is five miles or so away from the hotel. Situated in Beenham, this one-of-a-kind attraction allows you to get up close and personal with these rare and stunning creatures.

Need something to do at night?

The towns surrounding Regency Park Hotel are replete with all manner of pubs and restaurants that are bound to cater to every taste and need - should you want to venture from our first-class Watermark Restaurant, that is.

Be it pub-style grub, Italian or Asian, we guarantee there will be somewhere of interest for you among the local eateries.

That’s not all...

These are just a few highlights. After all, there are countless other things to do during your stay with us, including visiting nearby castles, taking a trip on a boat or enjoying a spa day – or you could simply kick back and relax in one our 108 luxurious bedrooms. The choice is entirely up to you.

For more information on what there is to do during your stay at Regency Park Hotel, please don’t hesitate to contact us.


What are the warning signs of a bad wedding venue? 

Regency Park Hotel is the leading wedding venue in Berkshire and the surrounding area – so we’ve obviously seen a lot of wedding parties come and go in our time.

We do hope that you choose to spend your big day with us, but if you are still searching for your dream wedding venue or hotel, we’ve compiled a list of things that should set alarm bells off in your head when looking at a particular venue.

It looks nothing like the photos you’ve seen

We do hope that you at least make a quick visit to your wedding venue before you book it. It can be extremely risky to book without making a visit – you never know how old the advertised photos of the venue could be, whether they’ve been manipulated in any way, or whether they necessarily show that particular venue at all.

If something looks 'off' while you are making a visit, count that venue out of your considerations.

There’s a lack of accessibility

Regardless of the size of your wedding party, there’s bound to be a child, someone who is less able or someone with an allergy/intolerance somewhere in the group of guests.

If your wedding venue isn’t child-friendly (it could be that it doesn’t welcome children or provide facilities such as interconnecting family rooms or a cot), this could prove to be a big hassle on the day for you and your guests.

It’s also important to check that your venue is suitable for the less able or elderly. Enquire about handrails, ramps or even accessible hotel rooms nearby – it would be awful to have to exclude anyone from your celebrations.

Food also plays a massive role in your wedding celebrations, of course. If the venue doesn’t cater to a wide range of tastes or doesn’t do its utmost to cater to those with allergies or intolerances, choose another venue. If they also won’t allow you to use your own caterer if you wish to, this may be another red flag.

They don’t do many weddings

If this is the case, there’s probably a reason behind it. You should always ask to see some sort of portfolio, or look at reviews online to get a good idea of people’s experiences there.

Regency Park Hotel has been rated as excellent on TripAdvisor, and there’s a whole host of photos of the wedding celebrations that loved-up couples have enjoyed here for you to take a look at.

For more information on spending your big day with us, feel free to get in touch with our team today.


Not quite ready for your stay at Regency Park Hotel? Here are a few tips and tricks...

We have all been guilty of leaving things until the last minute - packing being one of them. As excited as you may be for your stay at one of the leading health and fitness clubs in Berkshire, it can be difficult to not procrastinate about packing.

If you are one of the many that are procrastinating, we’ve compiled a few bits of advice on how to make packing seem like the easiest thing in the world.

Preparation is key

We didn’t say we could help you if your holiday starts tomorrow, after all...

The best way to prepare for your stay is to make three lists before you begin packing. Name them accordingly; ‘things to do before I leave’, ‘things I need to buy before I leave’ and ‘things I need to remember to pack’.

Make sure to write these lists several weeks or days before you actually begin packing, as it will give you time to add anything that you may have forgotten previously. Keep referring back to the lists as you are packing, and don't forget to tick things off once you’ve done.

Only bring the basics

Everyone is prone to over-packing – whether for a night on the town or a full-blown holiday.

The best way to tackle over-packing is to first think about what you are actually likely to do during your stay with us. For example, if you plan to spend the majority of your weekend in our health club and spa, there’s probably no need to pack several pairs of high heels. Likewise, if you are here for a wedding, it may be best for you to leave your running shoes at home.

We may be able to help you...

Make sure you do your research before you attempt to bury half of your belongings in your suitcase. The rooms at Regency Park Hotel come equipped with ironing facilities, hypo allergenic pillows and duvets, and a range of other features and facilities to make your stay more comfortable.

To learn more about what Regency Park Hotel can do for you during your stay here in the beautiful county of Berkshire, just contact our team today.

Cater for your wedding appropriately with Regency Park Hotel

Regency Park Hotel is one of the leading wedding venues in Berkshire. We have hosted a fair share of weddings in our time and have assisted a wide array of guests in the planning of their big day. As you might expect, we have also learned a fair few things from this, one of them being that food is highly crucial to a wedding.

We have therefore compiled a few pieces of advice that we reckon you'll thank us for when planning your big day!

We’re here to help

Here at Regency Park Hotel, we have a professional wedding planner on hand to guide you with the planning of your big day - catering being just one of the several things that they can advise you on.

Make sure to mix it up

Providing the same food all day can lead to guests getting bored of the food on offer, which can lead to waste and people going hungry. It’s also a major drawback for those with allergies/intolerances, who will be left with little, if anything to eat.

Communication is key

Before you choose to host your wedding with us, we would urge you to enquire with your guests if they have any food allergies or intolerances, even if they are only minor. Our staff are dedicated to making your big day memorable by catering to your every need, but it can often be tricky to avoid cross-contamination, especially with the likes of buffets.  Alert us to any specific dietary requirements ahead of time, and our team will work hard to meet them.

For more information on planning a wedding, dining or catering, contact our helpful team today.

Find a personal trainer at Regency Park Hotel

If it's a gym membership in Berkshire that you are seeking, be sure to choose one that offers the use of a personal trainer. Whether you’ve been working out for years or are completely new to the gym, hiring one can be incredibly beneficial. Here’s why.

Unique program

There’s such a vast amount of information available concerning muscle building and fat loss that it can be difficult to understand which exercises and training regimes are right for you. Your personal trainer will discuss your goals before making an exercise program that is tailor-made to meet them.

Everyone’s goals and starting point are different, so working from a regime you found online might not see you making the best progress possible. This also extends to nutrition. Eating right is a fundamental part of getting into the best shape of your life, and a personal trainer will be able to make suggestions to help you develop a healthy but satisfying diet.

Decreased risk of injury

Training your body is serious business, and mistakes can have negative consequences – from minor injuries to long-term problems. Of course, any kind of injury will mean that your performance is impaired, significantly reducing your chances of achieving your goals.

Such injuries usually occur when machines are used improperly, but they can also be caused by over-training. A personal trainer will prevent either eventuality from happening by talking you through the correct way to use each piece of equipment, and ensuring that your program isn’t too intense.

Prevent plateaus

If you’ve had an active gym membership in Berkshire for more than a few months, you probably already know what a plateau is. At first, your body will build muscle and drop fat relatively quickly, but things often become harder as you continue.

This can be de-motivating, but a personal trainer can stop it from happening by changing up your workouts whenever your body gets used to its current exercises. They know different ways to work muscles and understand how to alter cardio programs to ensure that you’ll continue to enjoy the best results possible.

The health centre at Regency Park Hotel offers personal training for all of its users, making it one of the best gyms in Berkshire. For more information concerning membership, just contact one of our team members today.


Reasons to take up regular swimming at our health club in Berkshire

Regency Park Hotel's health club in Berkshire includes a diversity of facilities that can leave you both looking and feeling much better. The merits of our sauna, steam room and air conditioned Techno gym should not be overlooked, but you might not realise just how much your life could change for the better until you begin regularly taking a dip in our 17-metre indoor swimming pool.

You can exercise your entire body

There are plenty of fun exercises out there, but they tend to only exercise particular parts of the body at a time. Swimming, on the other hand, works out the whole body. From your back, to your arms, to your core and more, you can improve your body's general look by using just four different swimming strokes.

It may rarely feel like exercising

One common reason why people who start a routine exercise regime don't keep it up is that they simply don't find it that fun. For them, it just feels too much like a chore. However, swimming is an activity that many people who don't usually like exercising do thoroughly enjoy. Many avid swimmers remark that engaging in this particular physical activity does not even necessarily feel like exercising.

You could find surprising success in burning calories

Swim moderately for even an hour and you could burn around 500 calories. Such substantial calorie-burning can also up your metabolism and so make it easier for you to keep losing calories long after you have left the pool. Swimming demands greater breath control, and therefore greater oxygen, than running. It all means that you can tuck into that post-swim treat with just a little bit less guilt!

Swimming at our health club in Berkshire is not expensive

Swimming can be delightfully inexpensive, as there is no need for you to buy lots of costly equipment in preparation. For many of us, swim shorts or a swimsuit, plus a cap and goggles, will suffice.

Also worth keeping in mind is the range of membership tariffs on offer for our health club at Regency Park Hotel, including those for peak, off peak, student, children, family and corporate memberships. Such a broad range of options allows you to obtain a membership without paying for extras that you don't genuinely require.


Tighten your core at our health club in Thatcham 

Finding a health club in Thatcham that offers a variety of gym classes is always a good idea, and one of the most popular sessions provided by Regency Park Hotel focuses on core and stability. This class is aimed squarely at your midsection, and there are a number of great reasons for you to come along.

Improved posture

People typically train their core in order to look better. That’s sensible, as tightened abdominal muscles can often help you to feel more confident, but you’ll also look taller and stand straighter. This is because your core muscles are vital for maintaining proper posture. After developing your midsection, you’ll find that your posture is improved without even having to make the effort yourself.

Helps avoid injury

Your core is the connecting element between your lower and upper body, meaning that it is activated to some degree or another during almost every activity – anything from standing up and walking around to lifting something off the floor. Those aren’t particularly gruelling activities, but people often throw out their backs or damage their knees while doing them because they haven’t strengthened their cores. Committing to a weekly core workout can help to prevent this happening.

Enhances performance

Of course, it isn’t only everyday activities that require a strong core. Every sport activates those muscles, and keeping them strong can help your performance and ensure that you don’t get tired out as quickly. This is true of competitive games like football, but even such more leisurely activities as skiing and hiking use the midsection. After participating in core workouts, you’ll notice that your balance is improved and that you are able to react faster. 

It’s fun

Abdominal exercises aren’t usually those which people look forward to the most, which is why finding a health club in Thatcham that offers a core and stability class is of such benefit. Instead of having to suffer through workouts alone, you’ll be able to join a group, making it a social activity to look forward to rather than a chore to be avoided.

Part of what makes Regency Park Hotel one of the most beneficial health clubs in Thatcham is our wide array of classes. For more information about core and stability or any other classes, just contact one of our team members today.

Why Berkshire is such a romantic wedding setting 

The south east England county of Berkshire has much to recommend it as a place to get hitched - not least its highly romantic feel. This character has developed over time, even over centuries! Hence, this certainly isn't the kind of thing that any county can just buy or win; instead, it is something that has to be integral to the area's history. Below, we elaborate about why Berkshire is such a romantic area.

There is plenty of beautiful rural scenery to take in

Although Berkshire is home to major towns including Reading and Slough, the west of the county is predominantly rural. Regency Park Hotel is located in this area, specifically in-between the towns of Newbury and Thatcham - making it an especially appealing wedding venue in Berkshire for loved-up country bumpkins. Even couples who don't usually appreciate countryside scenery can still appreciate having times of more privacy and quiet with each other. The abundance of beautiful countryside offered by Berkshire is rare so close to London.

In Berkshire, you can go back to the... past

Despite its very rural character, Berkshire has an intriguing history - and many physical remnants of that history today. Berkshire was, for instance, the setting for various battles, including several of Alfred the Great's against the Danes and two clashes of the English Civil War in the 1640s. Being able to, both before and after tying the knot, easily visit the places where these battles took place can put the cherry on a particularly delicious wedding cake... metaphorically-speaking, of course!

"It is a truth universally acknowledged..."

The most famous British romantic novelist in history, Jane Austen, has strong associations with Berkshire. Reading provided some of the young Jane's education, and her time at the Reading Ladies Boarding School probably inspired the Mrs Goddard School in her novel Emma. Furthermore, Basildon Park, which you can easily travel to from Regency Park Hotel's wedding venue in Berkshire, served as Netherfield Hall in the Keira Knightley movie version of Pride & Prejudice.

Jane Austen has written some of the world's most endearing love stories, so Berkshire certainly seems an apt place for the high point of your own love story. We would love to receive a booking from you, should you be considering Regency Park Hotel as your wedding venue in Berkshire.


A health spa in Newbury that has it all 

Are you paying a visit to the Berkshire town of Newbury any time soon? Perhaps you are doing so for pleasure, with the intention of taking in such sights as Newbury Racecourse and Highclere Castle? Alternatively, you might be here for business reasons - after all, we are close to the headquarters of several major companies here, and have strong transport connections to other areas of Berkshire.

Whatever your reasons for booking a stay in the chic and modern Regency Park Hotel, you can't possibly miss our complete health spa in Newbury. Our members and residents only club gives you the perfect environment in which to chill out or get fit, with extensive facilities encompassing a sauna, steam room, spa pool, unashamedly modern air conditioned Techno gym and 17 metre indoor swimming pool.

Our spa and club are both open from early in the morning until the evening, Monday to Sunday, and it all starts - if you aren't staying over at the attached hotel - with you choosing from our generous range of membership options. Peak Individual and Joint, Off Peak Individual and Joint, Student Memberships, Children and Family Memberships and Corporate Memberships are all available, so you can be sure of finding a package that suits you.

On entering our health spa in Newbury, you'll soon realise just why our facilities are so acclaimed for miles around. Not only are there all of the aforementioned amenities, but you can also take advantage of such poolside amenities as aqua aerobics, a chilled water station and pool viewing area.

The fitness suite, meanwhile, is the perfect place to come for personalised workout programmes and a computerised fitness consultation that considers the likes of your blood pressure, flexibility, aerobic capacity, height and weight and lung function. This is before you even look to the spa part itself, where St. Tropez spray tanning treatments, manicures, pedicures, facials and massages are all on offer, to name just some of a long list of treatments.

Don't forget that we also have a series of spa break packages to choose from, and that users of our health spa in Newbury even have access to the rest of our highly regarded hotel facilities, such as the award winning Watermark restaurant and 108 bedrooms, the latter available at concessionary rates. When we say that our health club is the most complete one in Newbury, we really do mean it here at Regency Park Hotel. 


Comparing health spas in Newbury? Why ours comes out on top 

The west Berkshire town of Newbury is not short of essential and not-so-essential facilities. This is a part of the world that is about so much more than its racecourse and largely 17th century town centre architecture. That's because it is a locality that offers much to please business and recreational travellers alike, with the range of health spas in Newbury, for instance, certainly being a strong one.

However, there's also no question that certain health spas in Newbury are better than others, as many of those who have used the one at Regency Park Hotel are able to confirm. Our members and residents only health club has an impressive list of useful equipment and facilities, including a 17-metre indoor swimming pool, steam room, sauna, sophisticated air-conditioned Technogym and spa pool. But above all
