Coronation breaks

Located just a hop, skip and a jump from Royal Windsor, we’re perfectly positioned to celebrate the upcoming coronation of HM King Charles III. Available from 1st – 8th May, our Coronation Break package includes a bed and breakfast stay, complete with limited-edition ‘Fit for a King’ afternoon tea and full use of the facilities including the outdoor pool.

Riverboat hire

We welcome back our fabulous fleet of boats this month, so you can explore the Thames at your own pace in one of our fantastic riverboats. All our boats are accessed via the hotel’s private jetty and are ideal for a family day trip or a romantic excursion. As the boats are suitable for beginners and experienced skippers alike, there’s something for everyone – we can even prepare a picnic for your day on the river!
