Although we do love a relaxing break, last week the P4 team found themselves at the 5* Forbury hotel, strictly on business of course.
We are always on the lookout for new tantalising venues to surprise our clients with, so when Forbury hotel manager Jacob contacted us to come and review the newly refurbished venue with a view to working together on future events and projects, we were delighted.
Firstly, let me paint you a picture: a Grade II listed resplendent building, imparting a fusion of Baroque and Art Deco styling that instantly enchants your eyes as you are greeted by a polished and impeccably well-mannered doorman.
The Evening Standard last year voted The Forbury “Sexiest Boutique Hotel”, and with this in mind, it does not disappoint. Nestled within Forbury Gardens, the historic remains of Reading Abbey provide a beautiful backdrop for the hotel. There are 23 sumptuous bedrooms, all with their own distinctive debonair style and all the epitome of luxury; there is a 30 seat cinema where private viewings of your favourite movies can be screened and a first class A La Carte menu, private dining and restaurant space.
Here at P4, we pride ourselves on going way beyond that extra mile for our clients. Heck, we can be found attempting to climb a ladder to the stars on regular occasions, all in the name of achieving perfection. It was therefore a wonderful thing for us to be on the receiving side of such exquisite attention to detail here at The Forbury.
As we received a guided tour of the hotel from Jacob, we were even more excited to discover that The Forbury has plans to extend further, particularly in the area of catering for larger events. P4 do a lot of work down South, and we know that event space prices can be astronomical, particularly in London, which got us thinking: would it not make sense to hop on a train from central London and (in less than thirty minutes) arrive at the Forbury for your event/ meeting/ luxury mini break…?
In our experienced opinion The Forbury Roseate is the perfect venue for an intimate wedding never to be forgotten, a party of which the likes of Gatsby would be proud, or a meeting fit for even the most prominent of VIPs.
Passion 4 Events would like to thank all the staff at The Forbury Roseate who made our stay so wonderful. We look forward to our future collaborations with you.
