Overlooking the River Thames, the Crowne Plaza Reading is a unique venue for your wedding. All our function rooms have their own private terrace; therefore you can fully enjoy the sunshine and relish those fabulous views in our idyllic settings. Combining traditional & stylish architecture with contemporary interior design, the Crowne Plaza Reading Hotel is your perfect wedding venue from 10 up to 180 guests. Let us look after you in a regal fashion so that you are able to enjoy the most important day of your life.
The Crowne Plaza Reading Hotel is a four star deluxe hotel with its enviable location on the leafy banks of the River Thames, nestled just next to Caversham Bridge. Despite its close road and rail links to the Reading town centre, the hotel remains peaceful and serene. The hotel’s main banqueting room – the River Suite, can comfortably seat up to 200 guests for dining. With the Thames as its stunning panoramic backdrop we can offer nibbles or reception drinks on the Riversuite terrace during the warmer spring and summer months.
As an alternative to our Riversuite, we can also offer you private use of our open planned Acqua Restaurant, also with fantastic views over a private terrace to the banks of the Thames. Both are complimented by the Caversham Suites, smaller rooms to cater for up to 50 guests, which feature a comfortable central lounge – for your private use. The hotel boasts 122 Standard and Club rooms, and is an ideal place to accommodate your wedding guests.
All our Club rooms, including the Honeymoon Suite, have a private view of the River Thames, with some having an outside terrace space. Our team is not only knowledgeable, enthusiastic and helpful; we are intuitive and anticipate your every need. Our reputation is based on the ability to take pride in being flexible and responsive and most of all, to give you a fantastic start on the first day of the rest of your life.
