The staff are friendly & efficient, the food was of a nice standard (and resonably priced) and as a lone female traveller I felt quite at home in the bar and restaurant. This would have been rated "vey good" if the walls/ceilings in the bedroom weren't paper thin. If you are a light sleeper you might like to ask for a top floor room else you spend the night listening to creeky floorboards.

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor room at the back of the hotel if you are a light sleeper

I use this hotel regularly for drinks with clients as it is very close to Reading town centre but also a quick and simple drive from the M4. We also recommend this hotel to clients when staying in the area and they are always happy.

I personally stayed for the first time last night, as a treat for my fiancées birthday. The staff were extremely friendly, the food was excellent and the prices were very reasonable.

I will definitely be staying again over Xmas as a treat and will continue to recommend this hotel!

Nice hotel stayed here on business for a few weeks. Very friendly clean hotel. Some rooms are a bit pokey but if you get lucky there are some which are a bit more spacious. Good free Wifi. Only negative is the evening meals poor choice and poor quality which is a real shame as there are not many options close by. They do make a great breakfast though !!

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments; all feedback is important to us and your review has beed discussed with the team here at the Calcot Hotel.

We are in the processs of changing the a'la carte menu in the restaurant, to offer a wider selection for our guests. The breakfasts we serve at the hotel always receive positive comments, so I was pleased to hear that you enjoyed yours too.

Whilst the majority of our rooms are of a standard size for a three star hotel, we do have a few smaller 'single rooms' which we sell at a lower rate when all the other rooms are sold.

Thank you, once again, for your time in writing such a kind review & we hope to welcome you back in the future.

I have stayed in this hotel for more times than I can remember weeks at a time as well... I don't understand the negative reviews I have read because every time I've stayed here as with the 8+ collleagues I stay with, all think this hotel is full of life and quality.. The staff are by far the most helpfull and chatty I have met and even when the bar menu is over there still prepared to please you.. The rooms are really spacious and clean modern and upto date we have made friends here and not just with the staff other companies all in all really good hotel :)

I like this hotel. I often have to travel to reading on business and my company has an account with the calcot. I've been coming here since 1997 and have seen the place improve over that time. It has more character than a travel lodge or premier inn and the staff are attentive. Decent food and beer is on offer and the rooms are quiet, clear and well looked after. it fulfills all the requirements of the business traveler and I can strongly recommend...
