The Swan beefs up makeover with new gym addition


The Swan at Streatley is one step closer to completing its extensive refurbishment, after unveiling its new gym and spa complex.

The 39-bedroom hotel, owned by Hugh Osmond , founder of Punch Taverns and his business partner Lucy Potter, has just put the finishing touches on the new gym and spa, which will compliment the newly-refurbished Riverside restaurant.

Since purchasing the hotel in 2012, the duo has been overhauling the dated Grade-II property into a more contemporary boutique hotel near Reading.

The project started with the transformation of six bedrooms and the conversion of the original Boat House eatery to the Boat House Deli and Cafe.

Now the new gym is the latest area to be given a makeover, and has been enlarged, relocation and completely refurbished with new equipment and areas. In addition there is also a new schedule of classes, sauna and steam facilities, treatments rooms and a new lounge and bar.

The new gym is now open to guests with all activities available by March 2016.

The remainder of the Swan Hotel refurbishment project is due to be finished in 2017, with improvements planned for the main hotel building and a new bar and restaurant.

The hotel’s colourful history includes mentions in Kenneth Grahame’s ‘Wind in the Willows’, and a spell under the ownership of Danny La Rue.
