A Retreat Re-Imagined
Unique Design & Idyllic Views at The Relais Henley
Your escape begins here and now
Choose your sanctuary overlooking the riverside, townscape or charming courtyard garden.
Each of our 40 rooms is individually designed with curated amenities and a fresh look that takes inspiration from the River Thames, blending a rowing club spirit with botanicals from the English countryside.
Let us take care of you with mindful consideration of your needs, whether you’re here to unplug from the noise or connect with the vibrant happenings of Henley-on-Thames in Oxfordshire, England.
We can’t wait to welcome you.
Discover life-enhancing comfort and sanctuary
Individually redesigned to capture the spirit of Henley’s rowing tradition, the River Thames and the natural botanical beauty of the Chiltern Valley around us, our 40 guestrooms are havens of calm and well-being.
Each room has a modern ensuite bathroom – with bathtubs where the contours of the 16th-century building allowed us to accommodate them – and curated amenities by ALGOTHERM, a natural, vegan and cruelty free producer. Other 21st-century conveniences include air-conditioning and charging points.
Discover your favourite, with a choice of views over the River Thames, our ancient courtyard and St Mary’s Church, or the townscape of Henley-on-Thames.
Call on us for any whims or wishes, and we’ll be with you in the twinkling of an eye.
Courtyard Rooms for easy escapes
Located at garden level,
our Courtyard Rooms are lovingly cosy and convenient for easy access to the outdoors
With contemporary eclectic bespoke furnishings and wonderfully comfortable queen beds, a Courtyard Room also enables you to feel part of the inn’s history. You look out over the straw-coloured walls of the timber-framed Chantry House from 1461, and picturesque St Mary’s Church next door.
Two Courtyard Rooms are fully wheelchair accessible with added features to help with your access requirements.
Heritage Rooms for history connoisseurs
Take a walk into the past with an atmospheric retreat in one of our beautiful Heritage Rooms
Preserving the inn’s fine original antiques and high-beamed architecture, now complemented with freshly updated furnishings and artwork, Heritage Rooms offer a true sense of place – and of escape.
Choose a four-poster for a special occasion, or the very room that was first occupied by King Charles I in 1632.
All our Heritage Rooms are located on the first or second floors.
Riverside rooms for watching the world go by
Allow yourself to be captivated by the perpetual motion of life on the River Thames
A Riverside Room, on the first or second floor of the main hotel building, is your private observatory with extra space to enjoy the best river view in town.
Freshly designed to evoke the interiors of a vintage yacht, with a nod to our position between the Thames and the prestigious rowing clubs nearby, Riverside Rooms are places to move in, feel at home and luxuriate in the delights of Henley and all that surrounds it.
