About Great Expectations

Great Expectations is a unique hotel targeted towards lovers of Charles Dickens' literature. The famous writer once held public readings in the historic building that now hosts guests from around the world. Each room at this hotel is furnished in modern style, and features a private bathroom that comes stocked with complimentary toiletries. Flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi are standard amenities, as are tea and coffee-making facilities. The building is heated, and is non-smoking throughout, unlike in Dickens' day. The front desk is staffed limited hours. The hotel's themed restaurant and bar are decorated in classic English style and hearken back to Dickens' time. Guests can enjoy good ales on draught, and a full English breakfast is available for a surcharge each morning. Great Expectations sits just steps away from the River Kennet. The beautiful Forbury Gardens and Abbey Ruins are both under 800 metres away.
