Having battled the Irish Sea to come to rest upon the Thames, just outside Reading, this spectacular boat hotel is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty and historical interest. Moored on a large country estate called Mapledurham House and Water Mill in Oxfordshire, the hotel is only 2.5 miles away from the centre of Reading and within easy reach of the spectacular Chilton Hills.

After a long day you can relax on the boat’s sundeck, whilst gently rocking on the water, before retiring to one of the cabins, all of which are centrally heated and en suite. The hotel has a rich and colourful past, having previously moored up in both Holland and Ireland. The boat can arrange customised cruises for parties of 8 or more (on request).
