Stay at the French Horn

A stay at The French Horn has long been the natural response to the quality of our wine cellar. What can be more delightful than to head off to bed with the prospect of river views and an excellent breakfast served to your room in the morning?

Incidentally, we’re a short journey from Reading, Heathrow and London Crossrail stations.

Our 21 individual rooms include Standard Rooms, Standard Rooms with a View, Junior Suites and Riverside Suites.

Accommodation at The French Horn is either above reception and the restaurant or in our Riverside Rooms. Most rooms have views over the Thames.

Riverside options are based in a group of 19c cottages a few seconds walk from the hotel’s front door, past the splendid willow tree that leads down to the banks of the river. All guests benefit from room service, including extensive breakfast choices. It’s all rather romantic we’re told – many of our regular guests prefer the ambience of the Riverside Rooms. The choice is yours, of course.

Room and Breakfast accommodation is available at The French Horn, from £170 for two people, up to £225. Single occupancy from £135.
