Hired function room for a birthday bash with family, hotel & staff extremely helpful & accommodating. Proved to be a fab venue, recently refurbished. Excellent value for money. Would highly recommend. Should imagine dinner/dances, other events are well worth a visit!

Have stayed here on a number of occasions for family visits. I first stayed 25 years ago and still it seems to be the same décor.,, The Executive Rooms and Double Rooms definitely need updating in the Bathrooms and a King Size Bed would be ideal.

The Best Western Calcot Hotel is the perfect location for business or leisure in Reading and the surrounding Thames Valley area.
