Visited with friends for the Four Seasons meet Take That night. The food was lovely, I had steak and it was perfect. All the staff were friendly and gave a great service. Thoroughly enjoyed the show (great to have the variety of two groups and genre) and just to complete a great night out a good disco and dancing.

I really enjoy the food here both at breakfast and evening meal. The choice and quality is superb and at a reasonable price. I cannot praise the staff highly enough, especially the restaurant staff who are ever friendly and take great pride in the way they serve guests. An area for improvement would be internal décor, whilst clean could do... More

Stayed a night here with a friend as we were in the area and needed somewhere for the night. Clean, pleasant, comfortable and perfectly suited to our needs. The room was simple but had everything we needed. Breakfast was a self-service buffet style which had a good selection of fresh items and we had no complaints. The biggest issue we... More

Our daughter's wedding was held at the Calcot Hotel last Saturday and from start to finish the service we received was excellent. Right from booking the venue through to the ceremony and reception the organisation was first class. All of the staff were efficient and removed a lot of the hastle that goes into planning a wedding and made the... More

Great night on Friday at Motown evening. We all had lovely rooms and food and service was very good and Tony (DJ) was (even though he was not very well) fabulous as always. All my friends had a wonderful time and that is all that matters - it was a lovely way to celebrate my birthday.

Very dated décor, miserable serving staff and stingy portions. If you feel comfortable in the 1970s, or have an early morning meeting that requires access to the M4, then perhaps this is a good choice of hotel for you. Otherwise, I couldn't possibly recommend staying here - I would have felt much more at home in a Travelodge or Premier... More

Dear Niklaos Thank you for taking the time to post your very first review on Trip Advisor. Thank you also for pointing out how convenient our hotel is with respect to the M4 and other road networks.

For starters - easy to locate about i mile from the M4, Ample parking but note I arrived on a Sunday evening! I imagine the BW Calcot does well as primarily a business/function hotel rather than catering for families.. Reception greeting was efficient, room was comfortable and very clean and with usual facilities. There were occasional door-banging noises in the... More

Whilst I did live very near this hotel for nearly 30 years and have visited for various functions I'd never had Sunday lunch here. It was really busy with several large parties but overall it was excellent value and we all had an enjoyable afternoon.

I booked this room as our Christmas 'do' was being held here. The room can only be described as absolutely spotless, spacious and fitted out to a high standard. For the price that I paid, it was a bargain and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. Thanks everyone for a super end to a super night!!

We had another wonderful party night at this lovely hotel. It is our third year running and we have no intention of visiting elsewhere. The service, food and atmosphere were superb and it represents excellent value for money. Plenty of parking and our room was gorgeous.
