What makes a modern venue the best choice for a wedding in Berkshire?

Everyone wants an idyllic wedding - one that they will remember for the rest of their lives with their loved one. However, it's easy to fall for the idea that this absolutely must mean a more historic backdrop, perhaps with a church, abbey or other ruin in the background of every wedding photo.

The self-contained Parkland Suite exudes character and has also been designed with the needs of modern ceremonies firmly in mind, sporting an exclusive private entrance with its own reception and bar area. It can accommodate as many as 140 guests, and also has a sun terrace on which canapes and pre-dinner drinks can be enjoyed as the weather hots up.

Another illustration of just how much modern design that bring to a Berkshire wedding venue is provided by the more intimate Paris Suite, with its plentiful natural daylight that ensures a fresh and vibrant ambience. Up to 70 guests can be accommodated here, working their way through the doors to a spacious conservatory with its own private bar. It's ideal for those loved-up couples who aren't that excited by the idea of the traditional church ceremony or local Registrar's office.

The establishment's broad range of wedding and civil partnership packages, teamed with more bespoke services, caters for every possible need of the couple.

You see, we're a hotel in Berkshire with the celebrated Watermark restaurant that has won accolades for its style and sophistication.

For your first course, you can enjoy a smoked salmon roulade. Then you might move onto pan-fried duck breast with braised leg, roasted pear and butternut squash gratin. Finish it off with an orange sponge pudding and crème Anglaise. You can catch up between courses, and wow her with each dish that appears at her placemat. Would your siblings be clever enough to think of that? We think not.

At our hotel in Berkshire, our facility includes a sumptuously grand swimming pool, spa pool and sauna. We even have a steam room for her to let off some steam.

She may well want to. We can offer everything from Jessica nails polish to facials and massages at our hotel in Berkshire. She can even shift some excess pounds in the luxury of our state of the art gym, with music to accompany her exertions. You can spend the lunch enumerating all of this without the conversation turning towards when you will decide to settle down, or what your next career move will be. Above all, you'll love the smile it puts on her face. It'll certainly create a memory to treasure, and set the bar high for your brothers or sisters to follow.

If you wish to arrange that special date, simply call us on 01635 588 706. There are only so many tables at our Watermark restaurant, and with limited availability, spaces for the Mother's Day package are set to be snapped up in no time. 


Take up our spring corporate offer for magnificent meetings

Does your organisation tend to hold a conference in the spring, and does it tend to drag? Well here at Regency Park Hotel, we have corporate meeting rooms for hire, which makes for a much more enticing proposition. You see, we're a high end hotel in Berkshire. That means attendees will be in the lap of luxury among our stunning grounds, and you can justify it to the finance department, as right now we have a spring conference offer.

Only in April, if you hire our corporate meeting rooms for this month, you'll get a bundle of high value extras. There will be hot drinks and croissants at the start of the day. At the first break, there will be tiffin, and for lunchtime, an extensive food selection from warm or cool plates. After the second session, we will also lay on afternoon tea. There will be complimentary internet access, which is great for getting files sent at the last minute during the conference, and we will provide everything attendees need to make notes.

Just imagine how your presentation will shine on our big screen. There will also be an A3 pad for you to use, and throughout the day, there will be limitless hot drinks. Apples and bananas will also be available. What's more, there will be breath fresheners and bottled water for invitees. All this will make for quite a conference.

Our corporate meeting rooms can fit as many as two hundred people or if required, a maximum of four. Most can be laid out with rows. However, you may want to seat people at their own desk, or in groups around tables. We can provide long tables for board meetings too. However if you want more of a discussion or interactive session, many organisations opt to have seats in an open ended loop. Everything will be seen to by our event staff, who will set the room up to your specification.

Of course, being a large hotel in sumptuous grounds, your staff can stretch their legs in our acres of manicured parkland. By bringing them to Regency Park Hotel, you're treating them. It's the sort of move that encourages staff loyalty, and adds a sense of professionalism to your outfit.


Why, as a wedding venue in Berkshire, Regency Park Hotel cannot be overlooked 

There's little question that Berkshire is home to some of the United Kingdom's loveliest towns and villages, and that there is also no shortage of fine venues for a memorable wedding here. Across such settlements as Ascot, Bracknell, Eton, Reading, Windsor and - of course - Thatcham and Newbury, between which Regency Park Hotel can be found, there are many prestigious, practical and befitting wedding venues.

However, there are also many sound reasons why love-struck couples should not overlook Regency Park Hotel itself as a wedding venue in Berkshire. First of all, there is the simple tranquillity of the hotel's location, making it the perfect place to celebrate a loving and what is hoped to be long lasting bond, without the distractions of traffic or other frenetic nearby activity.

There is also the undoubted highly contemporary nature of the establishment that has led so many couples to place their trust in our wedding venue in Berkshire and its associated hospitality. Our suites, for example, are all unashamedly chic and modern in their interior design, making for a stylish and special celebration.

One of these suites, the Parkland suite, has its own entrance and is able to accommodate as many as 140 guests. It is highly individual in character, but also offers all of the spaciousness that one would desire from a suitable suite when you have a long guest list. An exclusive bar, entrance hall and lounge area only add to the sense of warmth and atmosphere here when people start to filter in on the big day itself.

However, any good wedding venue in Berkshire is also likely to have a smaller space available for those who desire a more intimate ceremony - and so that is the case at the Regency Park Hotel, with the Paris Suite able to welcome up to 70 guests. It is a place that feels fresh and vibrant, in part thanks to the doors that lead out to the conservatory and allow in plenty of natural daylight. If you don't desire either a lavish church ceremony or the local Registrar's office, this could be the ideal setting.

However, no wedding venue in Berkshire is ever summed up by its buildings, rooms and decor. For so many couples, what really matters on their special day is the most exacting service, from venue staff who really value the most exceptional attention to detail. This, after all, is the bare minimum required if your special day really is to be the best day of your life. The Regency Park Hotel's professional Wedding Planner is more than up to the task of professionally catering for everything from menu planning to the right choice of entertainment.

Get in touch with Regency Park Hotel today for more information about our many wedding and civil partnership packages, which can be further tailored to ensure that your wedding lives up to your very highest expectations.

The qualities of the right hotel spa in Berkshire

When seeking an appropriate hotel in or around the Royal County of Berkshire, travellers and holidaymakers have many options and priorities to carefully consider. The bedrooms, of course, should be well-appointed and adequately equipped, while an inviting bar, lounge and restaurant is also attractive for whiling away those hours alone or meeting up with friends or family. Those using a hotel for business premises will also naturally want to have easy access to the most professional meeting rooms.

There is, however, one other major priority that one can have when choosing a hotel: a high standard of leisure facilities. When 'on the go' in the county, it's only natural that many will seek a suitable attached spa in Berkshire that can cater for their health and fitness needs and keep them looking and feeling good. The Regency Park Hotel offers an especially extensive spa in Berkshire in a peaceful and tranquil setting between Newbury and Thatcham.

The spa in Berkshire of the Regency Park Hotel has long set an example for the health clubs of other hotels to follow. Open from 6:30am until 10:00pm Monday to Friday, as well as from 8:00am to 8:00pm on Saturdays and Sundays, the health club is exclusive to members and residents and offers a true wealth of on-site facilities, from a state of the art air conditioned Techno gym and 17 metre indoor swimming pool to a spa room, steam room and sauna. Users of the amenities also benefit from extensive complimentary parking.

There is a series of pre-bookable classes taking place at the spa from Monday to Saturday, encompassing Circuits, Fast Abs, Aqua Aerobics, Cardio Blitz and Legs, Bums and Tums. For those taking advantage of the pool, a chilled water station and warm showers are both available, while the fitness suite offers everything from personalised programmes and fitness assessments to personal training and music and visual entertainment.

However, no spa in Berkshire is worthy of the name without a breadth of beauty treatments, which in the case of Regency Park Hotel's enviable facilities, include the likes of Jessica nails, reflexology and holistic treatments such as manicures, pedicures, facials and massage. Spa day packages are another option for those seeking no-compromise pampering on their short stay at the hotel.

Whichever aspects of the Regency Park Hotel spa in Berkshire that members or residents choose to make use of, they can expect consistently impeccable interiors and facilities along with a welcoming atmosphere and the assistance of the best-motivated and trained staff. In short, all of the facilities are in place at this spa in Berkshire so that all users can take ultimate responsibility for their own health and wellbeing - however long they are in the area. 


The attractions that make Berkshire impossible to miss

For many who find themselves perusing the Internet for hotel deals in Berkshire, there can be many motivating factors - and of course, the accommodation itself can play a part. The Regency Park Hotel, for example, is located between the towns of Newbury and Thatcham and is well-regarded throughout the county for the standard of its bedrooms, bar, lounge, restaurant and other amenities. It also offers periodic events and packages, such as its Watermark Weekday Lunch offer and Champagne Fridays Promotion.

However, the Royal County of Berkshire itself - gaining the moniker of 'Royal' due to the presence of Windsor Castle and the recognition of the Queen in 1957 - also offers no shortage of fine things to do. On one hand, people are attracted to hotel deals in Berkshire due to the county's close vicinity to London's frenetic city life. However, the area itself is also very much the antidote to the sensory overload of the capital, its extensive towns, villages and countryside offering a wealth of both widely renowned and lesser-known attractions and activities.

It frequently takes little encouragement for those taking advantage of hotel deals in Berkshire to pay a visit to Windsor Castle itself, which is the world's oldest and largest occupied castle. Over an area of around five hectares (13 acres), it's possible to discover one of England's most beautiful ecclesiastical buildings, St George's Chapel, where 10 monarchs are also buried. Also impossible to miss are the magnificent State Apartments, home to various treasures from the Royal Collection. The visitor route includes a further five rooms, collectively known as the Semi-State Rooms, during the winter months.

Other major attractions frequently appearing on the itineraries of those purchasing hotel deals in Berkshire include Ascot Racecourse, the Savill Garden and the River Thames, which serves as another reminder of the English capital's close proximity as it meanders along the county's northern edge. Berkshire also has strong literary associations, the charming village of Pangbourne being the former home of The Wind in the Willows author Kenneth Grahame. It's quite clear how inspiring the town remains, with the pretty countryside cradling the river only further affirming the impression of tranquillity.

However, there is another significant local draw for many who book a stay at the Regency Park Hotel: the Jacobethan style Highclere Castle, a house that is the country seat of the Earl of Carnarvon, but is better known to many as the principal filming location for the TV period drama Downton Abbey. Located a mere 11 miles from Regency Park Hotel, the Grade I listed stately home was remodelled and largely rebuilt by Sir Charles Barry in the 19th century, the park designed by Capability Brown.

Such an attraction may be sufficient in itself for many people to investigate the latest hotel deals in Berkshire - and when they do, they are advised not to ignore Regency Park Hotel's own generous selection of packages. 


How Regency Park Hotel's hotel meeting rooms compare to the competition

For all manner of events, from conferences and product launches to straightforward meetings, businesses may seek hotel meeting rooms that can give them the benefit of extensive facilities oriented to their requirements, together with well-appointed, spacious and cost-effective overnight accommodation. Among firms in Berkshire, one of the highest rated meeting room venues is the unashamedly contemporary and stylish Regency Park Hotel.

As Christmas festivities vanish into the distance and work recommences on cementing colleague and client relationships on all manner of assignments, so the competition among hotel meeting rooms in areas like Berkshire intensifies. Whether a given Berkshire firm holds regular meetings away from their main premises or is looking for the ideal setting for an exceptional event, they will not be disappointed by the sheer choice of flexible spaces that the Regency Park Hotel can offer over rivals. The same applies to a highly professional and responsive customer service that is geared to fostering successful and long-term business relationships.


For those firms holding relatively small meetings, the rooms of the hotel's separate Business Centre should suffice. In any one of these seven rooms, between two and 50 delegates can be easily accommodated. For many, however, it is the capacity of up to 95 delegates that the hotel's Paris Suite can offer that is more urgently required. Meanwhile, for those needing a suitable room for as many as 200 delegates, the Parkland Suite is more than formidable, this especially large room having all of the elegance, not to mention facilities - such as its own entrance, a spacious bar and a comfortable reception area - to leave any guest with a resoundingly positive impression of the hosting firm.

The Paris Suite is also not exactly lacking in the atmosphere that helps to distinguish the best hotel meeting rooms, thanks to its doors that in addition to leading out to the conservatory, allow in considerable natural daylight. The Manhattan is another strong option, accommodating as many as 50 delegates who can easily access it directly from public areas within the hotel. However, even the base level hotel meeting rooms of the Regency Park Hotel are known for their enviable specification, encompassing air conditioning, wireless broadband access, black out facilities and all of the power that one could possibly require for the most productive and workmanlike stay.

Many of the finest providers of hotel meeting rooms will not lavish attention simply on the meeting rooms themselves. That's because much focus will also be on providing the right outdoor space for such complementary events as summer barbecues and team building sessions, while the bedrooms for overnight stays also ought to be light, airy and generously equipped. Flexibility is a watchword for many of the finest meeting room providers, as could certainly be said of the Regency Park Hotel, with its formidable reputation for such business-oriented amenities right here in Berkshire.

That's why there is such a passion for creating the most enticing dishes, full of taste and texture, guided by the seasons and using the freshest ingredients.

But there's so much more to dining at the Regency Park Hotel than the Watermark - after all, it wouldn't have attracted its formidable reputation for Berkshire weddings and business meetings if exclusive private dining could not also be arranged in its elegant banqueting suites.

Dining can also be arranged for a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary, retirement celebration, Christening or graduation party, taking full advantage of the hotel's beautiful banqueting suites and outdoor garden space. We have rooms suitable for small and intimate celebrations, as well as for larger gatherings, the Parkland Suite with its private bar and reception area able to accommodate as many as 130 guests.

Of course, we do realise that many people have somewhat simpler tastes or needs during their stay here, so room service is also available for dining in the privacy and comfort of their own hotel room. Lighter meals and snacks, meanwhile, can be ordered at the licensed bar area, alongside an extensive selection of coffee.
