My wife and I stayed for one night. The room was beautiful with old furniture and stylish decor. The floorboards squeaked and the light switch was only on my wife's side of the bed, making sneaking to the bathroom in the night a bit tricky! The restaurant food was good, though a bit overpriced, and here the decor and carpeting... More

Very friendly staff, a stunning room (we did not book the standard), dog friendly - our room had a door to the garden; bowls and dog bed provided with dog's surcharge. Lovely Pangbourne on the doorstep. Not much more to say but we will return!

We spent time at The Elephant in Pangbourne in 2008, just after the hotel went through an upgrade. We loved it so much that we decided to spent time there again this year. What a disappointment! Firstly, the room was located right on the busy main road (the hotel did give us what they state was their biggest room as... More

I only stayed one night on a business trip but was welcomed by friendly helpful staff. 4 of the rooms are in the annex which is just across the back of the car park. Nice and quiet over there. The room was a bit dark in the decor but in line with the Indian sub continent theme. Nice big comfortable... More

The Elephant Hotel in Pangbourne consistently serves very good food and has a fine selection of lagers and beers including West Berkshire Brewery choices. We live locally and often dine in Pangbourne. Whilst some other places have more extensive menus we have found them to be very inconsistent and in some cases over priced for their offerings. This is not... More

My family and that of the bride took most of the 13 rooms of this hotel for the night of my son's wedding at a nearby country manor venue. I managed to get the best deal by booking a couple of months ahead on-line, so got the classic single rooms for £55/night including full breakfast. I also got a double... More

Stayed for one night in the chic double (The Empire room or number 7) which was as requested a comfortable and quiet room. The room had a double aspect overlooking the church and gardens below. Having stayed in the sister hotel at Bucklers Hard, we are well acquainted with 'quirky' so we knew what to expect with how the room... More

I stayed here in October with my partner (we got engaged here so I may be biased) and had a lovely stay. We stayed for one night. The bed was very comfy, loved the little things in the room that made it unique. The blackcurrant liqueur, the tea pigs and tea pot. Food in the bar was delicious and great... More

Stayed here for a wedding on a Sat night. The service was outstanding, the venue was really special, the staff couldn't do enough for us, running around ensuring that all the bars were stocked all night.
