One night stay. Pleasant staff at check in and restaurant. Fairly basic evening dinner menu, burgers, steaks etc., not great quality. All the rooms on my corridor had a warning sign about the step just inside the door, but with the positioning of the suitcase stand and light switch, I was very quickly distracted and nearly fell twice.

We have been to many functions here since the 1960's and the standard they have maintained has been consistent. For this small function with Family & Friends we decided to hire the Loddon Suite which can hold 20 to 30 comfortably seated. The charge for this room is reasonable as it includes Waitress service, which means that the diners all...

In the section of the hotel I was a given a room for 2 nights, I could hear everything from the room above, movement around the room, use of bathroom and on my second night snoring! I ate in the restaurant on the first night and though reasonably priced the food was bland. The staff in the restaurant were ok...

Stayed for three nights in a single room. I experienced slow WiFi, with my laptop struggling to connect whilst sat on the desk, having to sit on the bed in order to ensure it was connected well. The shower seemed have a very loud high pitch squeal when turned on, which made me shower as quickly as I could for...

Stayed at the hotel over a weekend as studying at a local college. The single room was small, but was clean and comfy. Plenty of parking as well and all staff seemed polite and friendly. Now for the down side, the noise, it is terrible. From the room I was in, you can actually hear the people talking in the...

The hotel itself is quite dated, my room on the ground floor was dark and had an odd smell. Also could hear every word spoken and every movement in the room above/next door and plumbing was very noisy. Thankfully almost everyone staying was a solo business traveller so still got a decent night sleep. The reception and restaurant service on...

Very clean hotel with friendly staff. The hotel does lack atmosphere though. Food cannot be described as anything more than average the evening meal was bland and appeared to have been a warmed up meal rather than cooked fresh. In saying that if ever in the area would stay again.

Stayed a night as attending a wedding some 4 miles away. Very helpful staff who were very accommodating as we were travelling abroad next day. Breakfast was ok and plentiful. Good price but standout was staff at all times. Very courteous and helpful. Only complaint was taxi charging £25 for 4 miles which we fed back to staff

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
