Lovely friendly service. Good size room i stay here regularly for business but this room was mouldy and damp. Surely housekeeping have seen this?? good location, free parking and wifi and other rooms are not bad. Usual amenaties kettle,iron, tv. Room is clean and tidy and shower has a good pressure. Positive: friendly staff and good location Negative: mouldy room

The room we had was a business suite, so we were expecting a reasonable size room and facilities - small double bed, one bucket type chair and a dressing table chair and a coffee table - it was extremely small and smelt dampish. The breakfast however was good. Not worth the price charged.

Good, dependable hotel and typical Best Western. Cannot say much to moan about to be fair, but nothing outstanding or that sets it apart from most hence the average. Three star is perfect rating.

My 102 year old mother has lived next to this hotel for many years so it was only right that when she passed away recently, the hotel was our choice for family and friends to gather after the funeral to say a final farewell. Myself and a friend were the first to arrive and we walked into reception expecting to... More

In the hotel trade things inevitably go wrong and as hoteliers we occasionally have to hold our hands up. However on this occasion we are at pains to comprehend where we were at fault? Our only sin was to be caught on the hop as you arrived a clear 20 minutes prior to the contracted timings. A significant proportion of... More

From the outside this hotel doesn’t look too bad. The reception is fine and the bar area looks a bit ‘old manish’ but there’s a certain charm to it. Not so charming when it’s full of drunken contractors. The real issue is the bedroom. It’s probably one of the most tired rooms I’ve seen and looks more like an 80s... More

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
