Have stayed here before but pleasantly surprised the rooms have had a makeover. Don't think there are lifts as none on my way to my room. Reception staff friendly. Very quiet inside but looks out onto main road so can be sometimes. Very close to sainsburys and ikea.

This is an older style hotel that is beginning to show its age now. However, the staff work hard to keep the hotel clean and tidy whilst providing a friendly, helpful welcome. Decent free WiFi. Great buffet breakfast that had plenty of freshly cooked hot food and importantly, nice hot plates. Excellent breakfast service, among the best I have experienced... More

Clean room, thankfully not too warm. Easy check-in, and breakfast buffet was very nice. Just stayed for one night - would use this hotel again if I was staying in Reading, and will be looking at other BW hotels in other cities now.

Stayed there for just one night. The reception was very friendly and yet professional. Room was nice, although not the largest we stayed in on our trip but much better than the hotel we had in London. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Bathroom was also very nice. Breakfast was very good and choice and quantities were in abundance.... 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
