The bedrooms at The Elephant Hotel are the backdrop to drinking, dining and indulgence. Most guests climb the curved staircase after a steak or two, a gin or three, ready for a deep slumber. From the 400 thread Egyptian cotton sheets of the Classic Rooms to the antique four-posters in the Chic Doubles, every inch of The Elephant Hotel's dreaming dens is dedicated to a good night's sleep. As day breaks, an indulgent Full English Breakfast is served.

If you've packed your pup, you'll be welcomed with open paws! The team at The Elephant love dogs and many of its bedrooms are dog-friendly with many lovely Thames-side walks to enjoy.
