The Elephant Hotel is a late 19th-century property in the charming village of Pangbourne on the River Thames near Reading.

The hotel is a 40-minute drive from Oxford and a 20-minute drive from Reading. Local attractions include Beale Park, a 30-acre wildlife centre, and Basildon Park, a National Trust House that featured in the 2005 film adaptation of "Pride and Prejudice". Pangbourne is home to shops, pubs, cafés and a riverside meadow area.

The restaurant serves modern British dishes made from locally sourced ingredients, and the bistro-style bar offers local ales, cocktails, bar snacks and sharing platters. Afternoon tea is served daily. In summer you can dine outside in the enclosed garden.

The 22 rooms are individually decorated and feature handcrafted Indian furniture, oriental rugs and super king-size beds. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel.
