Stopped here three nights on business. It's OK. Staff are fine. Rooms are clean. Restaurant is dated and a bit shabby - décor circa 1980. I'd go again because it's reasonably priced for Reading. Breakfast is a bit below average. Other meals are fairly decent.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
