We have stayed at the Calcot several times over the years and we can not fault it. The hotel rooms are comfortable with everything you would need for your stay. The breakfast is very good and the staff throughout the hotel are polite, helpful and friendly. The hotel has a great location.

I was well looked after during my short stay and receptionist allocated me a quitter room, which was very much appreciated. My stay was very relaxing and made even more so by the friendly and attentive staff.

Our room was average size but pleasant enough, although I did find the bathroom a little small. However, we were only there for one night so it was perfectly fine. Corridors were bright and cheerful. Breakfast plentiful although I felt the room needed updating. However, overall it was a good experience.

Ni Nessy89, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review after your recent stay with us. Firstly let me apologise for the issue with the bread.

We stayed last Saturday night. Lovely room with little extras for budget hotel i.e. tissue and good shower gel. There were plenty of sockets to use and a separate shelf for the tea making things. We also had an excellent breakfast. The service was better than a recent stay in an expensive hotel.

The hotel is nice our room was small and overlooked the dustbin area which was not impressive. The staff were very polite and helpful. The evening meal was average but the breakfast was brilliant. The bar was extremely expensive.

The Best Western Calcot Hotel is the perfect location for business or leisure in Reading and the surrounding Thames Valley area. Ideally located less than a mile from Junction 12 of the M4 motorway, on the A4 leading into Reading. Reading town centre is within 3 miles and access to the town centre is probably one of the least congested routes available. Very easy and quick to find and most importantly for a Reading hotel...an onsite FREE, floodlit car park for over 150 vehicles! ... more   less
