TopBrewers for innovative, informal workspace

Set in 15 acres of stunning gardens in the heart of the Berkshire countryside, the Royal Berkshire Hotel is an elegant country house hotel, part of the Exclusive Collection.

The hotel re-opened in September 2020 with a purpose-built meeting space, ‘Homespace’, designed to meet the growing demand for alternative workspace that provides a welcome respite from home working.

Working with specialist hotel designers, Trevillion, Homespace provides a flexible and practical workspace, using an innovative concept of a less formal, familiar ‘kitchen table’ environment.

Two TopBrewer Pro machines are now installed in the Homespace environment at the Royal Berkshire to provide a full selection of speciality coffees, hot chocolate and steaming hot water for tea drinkers.
