It's on par with most standard Best Western hotels. Great location off M4. Modern on the outside and oldie worldie in a good way on the inside. Nice cosy bar and large restaurant with a decent menu. Good buffet breakfast with great service from the staff. The room was reasonable and large enough with all the usual bits and pieces....

Staying here overnight on business travel. The room itself is comfortable though very basic and dated. Dinner was overpriced and disappointing. The starter was awful and the steak consisted of just the steak, chips and 1 tomato for £16. You would get more value and a nicer stay at a Premier Inn or Travelodge for the same if not cheaper...

room was comfortable and the service good. Only thought would be that the room I stayed in might get very stuffy in hot weather as there was no air conditioning. Breakfast was good although I didn't eat in the evening.

I will recommend this hotel to every one due to its location, hospitality and efficient staff. I am staying at this hotel every week for the past almost one year and it has improved a lot. All the rooms have been re-furbished as well as toilets.

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
