If you are planning to hold a private event such as a charity fundraising dinner, birthday party or baby shower, it’s understandable that you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed by the task of choosing a venue. Maybe you should just go with whatever venue that close relative or family friend recommends, or whatever place attracts the best reviews online?

While the above are certainly ways to choose a private events venue in Berkshire, we would suggest that you take a more methodical approach by considering the following aspects.

Location

The right location matters in so many ways. Yes, Berkshire may be a green and pleasant county, but some parts of it may make more sense than others for your private event. It might be especially important to you that your venue is in a peaceful and tranquil setting, for example, as is certainly the case with Regency Park Hotel in its convenient location between Newbury and Thatcham.

The event spaces available

The event space or suite that you choose is a central factor in your event’s success. You will obviously want it to be big enough to accommodate all of your guests. However, you’ll also need to think about the style of space or suite that will project the best possible image of your business, as well as what facilities it should incorporate. A bar area, for instance, may be especially appreciated by your attendees!

 How convenient is it for your guests?

Obviously, location is a big consideration here – Regency Park Hotel is just 10 minutes’ away from the M4 and A339, and we would certainly hope that you choose a private events venue in Berkshire that makes it easy for your guests to get there and back. Our venue also has strong rail links into Newbury and Paddington, and as we are a hotel, we can even often accommodate guests who wish to stay overnight.

 Price

Price can obviously never be completely ignored in any consideration of the right private events venue in Berkshire. However, we would urge you to place the emphasis very much on the value that you gain from the all-round package the venue represents, instead of simply going for whatever venue offers the lowest bottom-line price.

Do you wish to have true peace of mind when you choose a private events venue in Berkshire? If so, we would seriously suggest that you consider us here at Regency Park Hotel. We take pride in covering all of the bases and more when it comes to special events, and our friendly and professional team is always on standby to accommodate even the most exacting requirements.

There are a lot of tricky balances to strike when you are seeking the best option for charity venue hire in Berkshire. Sure, our county is home to many attractive and practical venues, but when you are looking to hold an event that is somehow both sincerely solemn and genuinely enjoyable for all of your attendees, it may seem at first that no venue quite meets all of the essential requirements.

So, to help you choose the right venue, here are the factors that it is most important for you to consider.

Location

Can your chosen venue be reached easily enough by not only those using public transport, but also visitors who have their own vehicle? Our own Regency Park Hotel measures up well in this respect – our rail links with the likes of Newbury and London Paddington are strong, while for those travelling by car, we are a mere 10 minutes away from the M4 and A339.

Suites

Will the actual space in which your charity fundraising event is to be held make a great impression on your guests – indicating an event that is professionally and conscientiously run – or is it stuffy and lacking even the most basic amenities? Our Paris and Parkland Suites are as classy and chic-looking as they are spacious and well-equipped. 

Dining

It’s natural that when you are hosting potentially a hundred people or more on what is supposed to be a very special evening, you will want to convey to them just how special it is by serving them the most fabulous food. That’s why we put so much effort into our own dining options for those hosting a special event at our venue, featuring remarkable dishes specially prepared by our Executive Chef.

Price

Given that it is, after all, a charity event venue that you are looking for, you will obviously wish to choose somewhere that is at least sensible as far as its price is concerned. However, we would also urge you not to make price your uppermost priority, if it means that you may not end up with a suitable venue that truly serves all of your requirements for charity venue hire in Berkshire.

Contact the Regency Park Hotel team today, and you will soon discover just what great value our venue represents for your next charity fundraiser – in more ways than one.

Quite understandably, many people in the south of England or beyond who are looking to hold a birthday party in a fantastic location may not give much thought to the idea of doing so in Berkshire. They may presume that the county’s towns and villages don’t offer much to outside visitors, or that aside from such obvious attractions as Windsor Castle and Legoland Windsor, the area can’t compare to the ‘bright lights’ of London.

Well, here at Regency Park Hotel – one of the most respected birthday party venues in Berkshire – we don’t think you should have to choose between the tranquil countryside and the bustling city, or the place that might seem to have almost no attractions, and the place that has it all. As a matter of fact, it is in many ways Berkshire, rather than London, that represents the most rewarding place to host your birthday celebrations.

We can give you the best of all worlds

Allow us to explain. While many people have an image in their heads of Berkshire as being a fairly low-key part of the country, a good proportion of the UK’s finest tourist attractions are actually based here, including the likes of Reading Museum, Newbury Racecourse and Highclere Castle. The latter has become particularly famous in recent years as the main filming location for the award-winning period drama Downton Abbey, and is open to the public during the summer months and other times of year.

Otherwise, Berkshire is very much a green and rural idyll in the finest English tradition, and our own Regency Park Hotel is located in a suitably peaceful corner of the county, between the towns of Newbury and Thatcham. However, if you find yourself pining for the sights and sounds of metropolitan London, you might be pleased to learn that there are excellent local railway links into Paddington station, from which you can explore the wonders of one of the truly great global cities.

Book one of our sought-after party suites today

With Regency Park Hotel itself also home to the well-equipped and stylish suites and various other amenities that do so much to turn a decent birthday party venue into a genuinely great one, we don’t think you need to look any further for birthday party venues in Berkshire. We think we’re the complete venue for anyone wishing to have a memorable bash, and when you get in touch with our bookings team, you will be able to find out more about our suite availability and prices.

However, this part of the UK also makes a lot of practical sense as a place to host a party – as we can attest here at Regency Park Hotel, with our venue located just 10 minutes from the M4 and A339. It’s also easy to reach us by rail via both Newbury and London Paddington.

In many ways, it is this combination of a welcoming, pleasing environment and sheer practicality that makes us such a great choice of party hall for hire in Berkshire. But what else do you need to know about our hotel as the potential site of your next bash?

It’s difficult to think of a more quintessentially English county than Berkshire. It is, after all, more properly known as the Royal County of Berkshire, due to the presence here of Windsor Castle. What you may not know, however, is that there are also many fine birthday party venues in Berkshire, showing that the grand old county certainly has a fun side.

But if there’s a downside to the broad choice of such venues across the region, it’s the difficulty of choosing between them – so what are some of the characteristics that you should consider when you are perusing birthday party venues in Berkshire?

1.    Location

This is definitely a key factor if you want to attract as many people as possible to your birthday party, as well as enjoy the celebrations once they are underway.

Here at Regency Park Hotel, for example, not only are we located in a peaceful and tranquil setting between Thatcham and Newbury, but we are also just 10 minutes away from the M4 and A339, and offer excellent rail links with Newbury and London Paddington.

2.    Suites

We’re sure you’ll agree with us that the space within the venue in which your birthday party takes place needs to be a pleasant and well-equipped one.

Again, that’s a need to which we are pleased to cater here at Regency Park Hotel, with our Parkland and Paris Suites accommodating as many as 140 and 70 guests respectively, while also each having their own bar and no shortage of modern style.

 3.    Experience

The finest birthday party venues in Berkshire also offer a little something that may be intangible, but which nonetheless makes a big difference to how well a party goes ‘on the day’ – considerable experience and a strong track record in the hosting of such events.

Choose the right birthday party venue in Berkshire, and there will be a team on hand to help ensure that everything goes like clockwork – from the start of your party until the end.

Whatever your own most pressing priorities as far as birthday party venues in Berkshire are concerned, when you get in touch with Regency Park Hotel, you may be surprised to learn just how capable we are of fulfilling each and every one of them.

Enquire now about what makes our chic and contemporary hotel the perfect place to hold your next birthday party in Berkshire, as well as to book our venue for a good price, well in advance.

We aren’t ‘just’ a hotel here at Regency Park Hotel, as we also host a wide range of special events – from traditional afternoon teas and baby showers to one-off lunches and funeral receptions.

Furthermore, we can offer you a great party hall for hire in Berkshire when you and your friends, family or colleagues wish to let off some steam and have some fun – whatever the exact type of party that you may wish to hold. 

Here are a few reasons why, despite our quiet and tranquil setting between Newbury and Thatcham, our venue is the perfect one for a party.

Everyone will be able to reach the venue

We’ve all had those parties in the past when one or two special people weren’t able to make it, for whatever reason.  

Well, when you hold your next party at Regency Park Hotel, that reason won’t be an inability to reach the venue. After all, the rail links from our venue into the likes of Newbury and London Paddington are excellent, and we’re only 10 minutes from the M4 and A339.

Our spaces are unrivalled

When you’re looking for the best place to hold a party, the quality of the spaces themselves will be a big deal.

Here at Regency Park Hotel, we offer two suites that are great for such a celebration – the Paris Suite, which can hold 70 guests, and the Parkland Suite, which is suitable for as many as 140 attendees.

Great suites, of course, aren’t just about space – they’re also about all of those fine touches that help to turn a decent space into a great one, such as the exclusive private entrance of the Parkland Suite that even includes its own reception and bar area.

The Paris Suite, meanwhile, has doors leading into a spacious conservatory – again with its own private bar. With plenty of natural daylight also flooding into this area, it’s fair to say that it has the perfect ambience for a party.

Enquire now about one of the county’s finest party venues

We can’t wait to welcome you and your guests to our party venue here at Regency Park Hotel – whether or not some of them also take advantage of our competitive room rates to stay overnight with us!

Simply get in touch with our team now to book – and in turn, we will give you nothing less than possibly the finest party hall for hire in Berkshire.

There’s always a certain difficulty in choosing the right venue for a charity event – you will want to be able to invite your attendees to a space that has all of the equipment and amenities they need, but which also reflects well on your charity in various other ways. That venue must also be relatively easy to reach, and available at a good rate.

May we suggest Regency Park Hotel?

You don’t need to trust anyone else for charity venue hire

There are quite a few reasons why you might want to choose us for charity venue hire in Berkshire. For one thing, we are in the right location, just 10 minutes from the M4 and A339 and with excellent rail connections to both Newbury and London Paddington, yet also in a tranquil setting.

Then, there is our vast experience of hosting private events to consider – meetings, corporate events, weddings, baby showers and even funeral receptions have all been held at our hotel to the most professional standards.

While the requirements of the aforementioned types of events naturally greatly differ, our seasoned team can easily adapt to them to ensure everything goes without a hitch at your charity event.

What are the spaces in which you can hold your event?

If it’s a relatively small event of up to 70 guests that you are planning, the Paris Suite – with its doors leading into a spacious conservatory with its own private bar – could be the perfect setting.

For events for which up to 140 people are expected, however, the Parkland Suite has no shortage of its own distinctive character, and also makes a lot of practical sense – it is designed to be totally self-contained, with its own private entrance, reception and bar area. There’s also a sun terrace on which your guests may like to enjoy canapés and pre-dinner drinks in the warmer months.

Enquire now about holding your event with us

Whatever your conceivable requirements are with regard to charity event hire in Berkshire, Regency Park Hotel can cater to them. We are, after all, a hotel, with comfortable and modern-styled bedrooms of which your guests can take advantage if they have travelled from well beyond the county’s borders.

With all of the above in mind, why should you wait any longer to contact our highly capable and professional team today about booking our space? Our venue is always in great demand, so we would urge you to secure your desired suite and date sooner rather than later.

This package lasts from Thursday to Sunday, and is still highly affordable on a per-night basis even if you specify dinner during your stay as well.

But if you do have some more cash to splash...

 ...we can treat you to an even higher level of pampering, with a Spa Break Away package. With this one, you can opt for either a one-night or two-night break and enjoy accommodation for two in a shared standard room on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis.

Sometimes, only the very best will do

Finally, if you wish to enjoy the most opulent spa experience we can offer, you can again choose from all of the aforementioned treatments for our Weekend Retreat Spa Break. Once more, both a one-night and two-night break are available, with both packages comprising accommodation for two sharing a standard room on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis, as well as a light lunch, use of the Health Club facilities and two 30-minute treatments on each day you are with us.
