The Relais

For 2023, we are delighted to welcome The Relais as our official hotel partner. Where the River Thames meets the historic market town of Henley discover the perfect waterside retreat, a 16th-century coaching inn now reimagined for a life well lived today. Enjoy the easy familiarity of spending time in one of the 40 individually designed rooms at The Relais Henley, inspired by the liveliness of the Thames as it flows through the surrounding English countryside.

Situated adjacent to the River Thames andclose to Henley’s iconic bridge, The Relais is perfectly situated just a short walk from all festival venues.

We’re delighted to welcome authors, interviewers and festival visitors to the Relais over the 9 day Festival to eat, drink and sleep at this beautiful hotel!!

Live our centuries of stories, as you discover dining at the Clipper Restaurant, cocktails at the Quarterdeck bar or al fresco meals in our inner courtyard. Dip into our meeting and workspace in the Palm Court, Salon or Clip Bar while watching the rowers on the river. Fully renovated in 2020/2021.
