Truly outstanding food and service. Extremely family friendly in a lovely location but ultimately let down somewhat by the fact that the whole hotel was not really very clean. Our floor in our family room was dirty and in general it felt as if the cleaning was rather cursory. Even the spa had food crumbs on the stairs at 10am in the morning. Another downside to our family room was the fact that there was only one bathroom on the 2nd floor and nothing in the master bedroom.
Despite the fantastic food and service the gripes make it not quite at the same level as other high end country hotels in England.

Just had another fantastic stay at Calcot and I would like to give all the team there a big thank you for another special stay. As soon as you arrive at Calcot you start to relax because the team just take good care of you and each step is a pleasurable one. Room – excellent, lunch in Gumstool – excellent! Dinner in conservatory – exceptional! Massage – excellent! Breakfast – excellent! Spa facilities – as a nice as always!

Looking forward to my next visit already!

Room Tip: The back massage @ £35 is great value!

The Calcot Manor is a destination in it's own right. The hotel has everything and truly wants to see to its guests. Its not just a beautiful, historical building that feels like home. Staff is genuinely friendly and helpful, always a "good morning" and "how can i help". There are many options for plentiful and healthy eating, parking, the rooms bright and clean, beds comfortable. Just a perfect spot,

We have just returned from our third, and probably best, family stay at Calcot Manor. If you are looking for a combination of relaxed, grown up luxury with great service, delicious food, a lovely spa and good children's facilities then I would really recommend this hotel.

It is a lovely hotel in a beautiful, rural setting which in itself helps you to relax as soon as you get out of your car and walk into the hotel. The service is professional and friendly and the staff went above and beyond the call of duty to look after us at all times, but particularly when our little boy wouldn't sleep and we had to retreat to our room for dinner.

The Conservatory restaurant is back on good form from both a food and service perspective, and both dinner and breakfast were really well cooked and enjoyable dining experiences.

The pool, spa and treatment rooms are very attractive and comfortable - lovely outdoor hot tub - and the pool was the perfect temperature. The service in the spa is also very good - friendly and professional.

We have used the Playzone as a place to go and play with our son, rather than a creche, but have always found the staff to be friendly and welcoming.

There is also a fun children's outdoor playground which our son loves. The playground is right outside the family block and given the proximity of the family block to the playground, the main house and the Playzone, I'd personally advise families to stay in the rooms there to make the most of your stay.

In my experience, you enjoy Calcot Manor at its best during the week when it is slightly quieter. It loses none of its ambience for being quieter and in my opinion, is even more relaxing for sharing it with fewer people.

Spent one night here with my husband and thought the food at both restaurants and service was excellent- however the room was just average. Maybe this was because we were right next to the parking lot and the windows were small and dusty owing to the cars coming in an out. The spa service was average- it was full, and we felt like our therapists were in a rush.

Would definitely come back to the restaurants- delicious! But not so sure about hotel or spa itself. No porters in sight to help with the bags either. We came from a longhaul flight with lots of luggage, and although the young girl at front desk offered to help, my husband felt he had to do it himself.

Room Tip: Don't get a room on the ground floor by the parking lot!

We had a traditional English afternoon tea with two very old friends, their son, his wife and three children. Calcot Manor is a delightful place and the whole package looks to be set up exceedingly well.
We had a lovely time, the staff were pleasant and helpful and afternoon tea delicious.
Our friends, over from Vancouver, were spending four days at Calcot and had nothing but the highest praise by day three. They are wold travellers, so that is praise indeed!
It is a child friendly environment, so if you don't like kids, beware!
We plan to return with our own children(and theirs)

Just returned from lovely spa break at thiS beautiful place.
Very good service and effiecent and decor is so tastefully done and cosy by the fire.
Food very nice in Village pub. Calfs liver was yummy!
Spa treatment was lovely and the outdoor hot tub with the fire was really lovely.
Did not want to leave.
I have nothing against kids, but there were lots of them so as very child friendly place.
Only annoying thing was wifi as you can only get in room and it was random so may not be a good place to come if you need to work?
Would go back in a heartbeat and shame xmas is booked as the place will be magical then.

Room Tip: Oxford room very nice and quiet!
