The Roseate, Reading Hotel

The Roseate, Reading Hotel

Häfele UK supplied and commissioned their state-of-the-art Dialock electronic locking system for all 55 rooms and many service doors at the magnificent Roseate Hotel in the centre of Reading. Thus, giving the hotel both convenience and the added security for their staff and guests.

This 5-star boutique hotel overlooks the Roseate Gardens – the listed property was built in 1911 with individually designed rooms. The Hotel comprises a health spa, cocktail bar, cinema room, library & restaurant that embodies luxury and opulence with lavish high-quality furnishings.

Guestrooms at The Roseate features bespoke designer furniture by William Yeoward, rich fabrics and high-tech Bang & Olufsen audio-visual systems. Superior bedrooms have added luxuries, such as underfloor heating and walk-in showers, and the Roseate Suite features a freestanding teardrop bath and steam room. An 86,000-glassbead Italian chandelier hangs from the top of the main hall, plush fabrics and wallpapered halls add to the meticulous design sense and ambience.


The traditional premier suites of the main hotel have been complemented with a modern house selection of bedrooms spanning over 25 square-metres in an annexe to the main building.

Häfele’s Dialock hotel locking system complements the luxurious ambience. Bespoke wall readers with a “Do Not Disturb” function were installed on the guestroom doors, allowing the existing polished-nickel door furniture to remain untouched. A modern minimalistic satin stainless steel lever handle design of the DT710 Dialock door terminal was chosen for the external doors of the new house annexe suites. The Häfele system allows a full audit trail of all doors aiding the overall security of the hotel.

Häfele’s solution provided the added mobile key function which can be switched on to assist the hotel to develop smart features whilst retaining the traditional appeal of the décor and function rooms.
