I'm not sure whether I was just unfortunate with my room allocation, but I wasn't very impressed. The pictures on the website looked lovely but everything from the impression driving up to the hotel were just a little disappointing. Plenty of free parking. Check in was fine, staff very friendly. The hallway was a little confusing, and when I got...

Hello Mrs_Fer, Let me start by thanking you for leaving us a review after your recent visit. I'm saddened to hear that you didn't find the impression of the hotel, or your room to be like what you'd seen online, without knowing where and what you'd seen i'd be unable to pass a judgement on this. We've got 3 different...

Not the most cheeriest of visits. But nevertheless they put on a good buffet. Hot and cold food. Varying from sandwiches to quiche and samosa to spring rolls. And sausages that were amazing!! All went down well and well done to the staff there on a difficult day.

My wife, son and daughter and myself spent two nights at the Calcot Hotel as we were in the area for a family wedding. We had two twin rooms which both had, unusually, two single beds rather that double beds. This actually suited me as I was sharing a room with my 21 year old son! Our room was very...

I was dreading staying here, it had all the hallmarks of a 'Faulty Towers' experience, but, it was not the case whatsoever. The staff were fantastic, I'm not sure if they have organised training but whoever is responsible for it should be commended. The food was pretty good, I was pleasantly surprised. They clearly knew the way to my heart,...

Best hotel l have stayed in for along time . The hotel was very clean &tidy.I liked the style of the hotel.All staff excellent in all departments. The only negative could hear traffic from busy road if you had to open window. So would prefer a room at the back of the hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
