      The speedy service, when requested, at breakfast was excellent

      Far too costly charge for breakfast

    • Older travelers

      Having just spent two nights at the Calcot Hotel, I felt the urge to write to you. My wife and I took advantage of an offer you supplied for two nights at a non-refundable reduced price. Past experience doing this caused me to expect a reduced quality stay as is often the case. Hotels have to make up the cost of an offer somehow, and its often by reducing whats available to guests. Imagine then my surprise and delight to experience one of the very best quality two days in an english hotel We have ever had! The rooms and beds were perfect, the food was excelent. And the friendly and helpfull service was second to none. We were even moved rapidly to another room with no fuss at all when we realised we could not sleep directly above a wedding party disco! I can assure you that on our next outing we will go first to a Best Western hotel, and if anywhere near Reading, it will be yours. Thank you and your staff for a pleasant and memorable stay. -- very best wishes from SEAN WILES

      Good value for money and despite it being a weekend with a large party taking place my room was very well insulated from any noise.

      The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. Staff were pleasant and helpful and we had a good cooked breakfast in the morning.

      Room was clean, plenty of parking, free wi-fi.

      The Hotel was a bit more dated than the photo's seen when booking showed, the bed wasn't the most comfortable and expected better from the description of the hotel. The television only had the basic 4 channels and as I was visiting Reading for a course and not a leisure weekend, I found this quite disappointing. I was then kept awake till 12.45 am sunday morning by the wedding reception disco and then the packing of it into their vehicles. It would have been nice to be notified when booking or arriving and not been put in a room next to the function. Although I was offered another room to sleep in when I complained but at 12:10 am it was a bit late in the day.

      The hotel staff were polite and efficient. The room was as described on the website.

      THe room was small, but as I had booked a single room, it was more or less as expected.

      My room was warm and comfoortable and the resturant staff were very helpful and friendly. My stay was cut short to just one night and this was not a problem and was dealt with efficiently.

      Its convenient to the Motorway & on main A4 into Reading. Has all the fascillities required for a comfortable stay for one or more nights.

      Good location, easy parking, on the whole very good hotel, clean and efficeint.

      Limited food choice in the afternoon.

      If I'm absolutely honest, as I was staying in the hotel purely to go to a wedding there, I can only say the function room was nice.

      On arrival the hotel staff were unaware of my booking. The room itself smelt of damp and stale smoke. The curtains fell off the wall complete with curtain rail and the bathroom was not desirable. This is my first time staying in a best western hotel but i dont think i'll be a repeat customer, not if i can help it anyway.

      Good clean accommodation with friendly staff

      Room was very old fashioned. Wireless code system is outdated
