We were invited to a wedding recently at the Calcot, the whole day went without a hitch and we were all made to feel special by Andrew and his staff. The food was good and hot, evening music good and tailored for the audience, all in all a good experience!

Sunday carvery birthday meal, table booked for 9 people for 12:30. Waited to be seated for about 5 minutes whilst the staff stood in the corner and had a good old chin wag with each other! Wanted a veggie option was told it was a pasta dish so ordered one of these right at the beginning. Starters came quite quickly... More

My brother and I stayed here for a family wedding Friday and Saturday nights. We had a lovely carvery meal on the Friday evening and there was also a Motown/Old Skool disco night on too so that was a bonus. The rooms we had were basic but clean, maybe a fresh lick of paint and some new mattresses are needed... More

Stayed here for one night only with my wife. The room was clean and the bed was comfy. Small problem in the bathroom, went to have a shower and my head was pressed against the ceiling and I am only 6 feet tall! Otherwise good value for money.

Room was not of a high standard, walls are not sound proofed enough as we were disturbed by talking and TV from next door. No fridge or bar in room, bathroom was small and cramped when using the sink. Bed was small and mattress bouncy, every time you moved it was like being on a bouncy castle. Our room was... More

The Best Western Calcot Hotel is the perfect location for business or leisure in Reading and the surrounding Thames Valley area.

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
