About
Description
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 More 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! Less

Really? Any hotel would be able to. If you're in Cardiff you probably could from there too.

Hello Heidi F, as Lcf110866 has stated it's around 11 miles so traffic dependant it would take around 20 - 25 minutes.
