Mill house charm in Berkshire.

Best Western Moat House Hotel Reading is a wonderful place to stay in Reading that successfully combines the individual elegance of a modern hotel with the charm of a once thriving 19th Century Mill House. The Mill itself used to supply flour to the Queen.

Overlooking the River Loddon, the hotel is in an exceptional location. Set in 1.5 acres of open land, you'll have the luxury of your own space, with the added convenience of being near the South of England's major towns and cities - including Reading town centre itself which is just 5 miles away. Youll also be minutes from the M4 for easy access to London or the West Country. While you're here, why not try something new? Horse riding, canoeing and go-karting can all be enjoyed just a few miles away from the hotel.

There are also some exceptional attractions near the Best Western Moat House Hotel Reading. You'll be close to the royal seat of Windsor Castle, if you feel like sightseeing. For racegoers, it's extremely convenient for Royal Ascot. If youre a thrill-seeker, you find plenty to get the adrenalin pumping on the rides at Thorpe Park.

Best Western Moat House Hotel Reading is also an excellent place to hold a conference or celebrate a wedding and we have a number of spacious rooms that will accommodate you. In fact, you'll find that this lovely hotel in Reading offers everything you could wish for.
