DoubleTree by Hilton Reading opens after £4m redevelopment

A former Best Western Grade II listed mill house has completed its £4m redevelopment into  a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Reading, with its doors now open for guests.

Vivek Chadha – managing director and founder of Nine Hotel Group – originally purchased the 129-room property in 2017, which is situated on the edge of Reading Town Centre.

Included in the development was the construction of a 300-person capacity ballroom, complete with a large banqueting facility for weddings, giving the hotel a total of five function rooms for groups looking to host events or business meetings.

According to the group, the renovation of the hotel has kept the “traditional and distinctive character”, while “boasting modern amenities” such as a 24-hour fitness centre.

Chadha said: “I’m proud to bring the unique Nine Group ethos to the area and I look forward to seeing the hotel prosper. The property was selected for redevelopment as it is part of local history, rich in character and period features. It now boasts premium facilities for the discerning guest whether they are visiting for business or pleasure.”
