The Elephant Hotel

Set in the pretty village of Pangbourne, beside the River Thames, is just minutes from Reading. They are a boutique hotel with a dash of opulence and a lot of comfort. At the heart of a friendly community, they invite you to escape, do business, relax, and unwind in style. Feet up or eyes down, you set the pace.

Stay in a beautiful boutique bedroom with handcrafted Indian furniture, rich fabrics, and a superbly comfy bed – four-posters are available. Dine in The Herd Restaurant where locally sourced steaks are matured on the bone for a minimum of 30 days, and are cooked to perfection on an open fire.

Their drinking den – Babar – is home to an eclectic collection of well worn bar fodder, designed with lounging in mind. Casual dining is available here, as is a collection of 60 handpicked gins. Chin chin!

They are dog friendly.

They have 7 lovely dog-friendly rooms at The Elephant.

There are 4 dog-friendly rooms on the upper floors, and 3 on the ground floor with patio doors – perfect for easy access to the garden area!

They love dogs & completely understand that your four-legged friend is part of the family. Up to two well-behaved pups are welcome to stay with you in their dog-friendly bedrooms.

Your doggy will receive a warm welcome, a comfy doggy bed & some special treats. Please note: a small charge of 20.00 per pup, per night applies. 

Dog-friendly bedrooms must be pre-booked. Please call them to request a dog-friendly room when you book. Unfortunately, if you arrive having packed a pup without booking they may not be able to accommodate your booking.

Your four-legged friend is welcome in all areas of the hotel, apart from the restaurant. However, you can enjoy dining with your pup in their casual bar area – BaBar, therefore you never have to leave your pup alone in the bedroom. 

Dogs are of course encouraged to enjoy the gardens – most of our dog-friendly bedrooms have direct access to these. They ask that you consider the comfort of other guests at all times, keeping your dog on a lead where necessary, cleaning up after them & being sure to keep them quiet if they become a bit excited!
