The Original Elephant Hotel in Pangbourne


Step into a world of chic living. Each of our 22 boutique rooms is decked out with quirky designs, beautiful handcrafted Indian furniture, oriental rugs and delicate fabrics.

You’ll find some fun (and some quite mischievous) themes weaved within our rich tapestries and statement furniture. 

We're steak aficionados and dog obsessed. We don’t take ourselves too seriously; we invite you to let your hair down and allow your inhibitions to run free. Whether it's a gin before noon or slippers at breakfast, this is your playground. Welcome to our family – our wonderful ‘Herd’.

In Pangbourne

Being one of Original’s boutique babies, it goes without saying that The Elephant is pretty special. Not only is it a special place for countryside staycation-ers and business travellers alike, but it’s also much adored by the locals of Pangbourne.

We hope you love everything we have to offer here, but don't forget to take time to explore the many beauty spots and tourist attractions in and around Pangbourne. From picturesque picnics along the Thames to day trips to the big city, we promise that you won't be disappointed.

This place has heart and soul. It is quirky and unique and we would definitely go back.
My husband and I got married at the Elephant in June and the whole day was run absolutely brilliantly. We cannot thank Claire, Chris and the rest of the team enough – they really went above and beyond to make our day incredible.
Lovely hotel with lots of character!  
I was taken back to Singapore in our room with beautiful antique furniture and wall art. Staff were very friendly and went out of their way to welcome our dog too.
My sister and I have just spent two nights at the Elephant Hotel . Our room was well equipped and decorated beautifully, situated in the annex it was quiet and overlooked the garden and church. The general manager Chris was welcoming and more than helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Best steak house in the country by far!
I had my wedding at the elephant recently and it turned out to be an amazing day after nearly two years of planning. The staff, decorations, the Herd and the quirky rooms made it a special day which I won’t forget! Special thanks to Chris and Starr – fantastic service and made everything run smoothly for the whole wedding day!!
We just wanted to say a huge, huge thank you for helping us host the best day of our lives. Our friends kept telling us it was the best wedding they've ever been to and our families are still talking about it!
The Elephant was just the perfect venue to hold the relaxed and fun (but still classy and beautiful!) wedding we wanted. The day was everything we hoped for and so much more.
