Reviewed 4 January 2013

This was our second Christmas Party Night at The Calcot with a large group of friends, though we have been to numerous other themed evenings before. Yet again we had a fantastic time. The food was delicious, with an extensive selection, the staff were helpful and the service very efficient. The music and dancing were great and we partied the night away in style! The rooms were comfortable and attractive, and the powerful shower was a treat! Breakfast was plentiful and of a good standard. We will certainly be back again! A great party venue.

We have partied and stayed over at the Calcot on several occasions and it's always excellent. 2012 was no exception - the food was good, the music great and the rooms very comfortable and well presented.

Highly recommended!

We have been coming here for Christmas for the past 6 years and every year this place does not disappoint. The place caters for a large number of people on the night yet you choose from 4 – 5 options at the time. Quality and quantity of food is pretty good considering the number of people being served , is served hot and does not have that warmed up feel about it. However, good as it is, in context of the occasion, we do not go for the food. This has always been a relaxed event, music is aimed at the 40+ market and dad dancing is to the fore. The dj always seems to get the most reluctant of us up and dancing and this is one evening that always goes very quickly. It does what it says on the can and if you want to go out, have fun and generally enjoy yourself for a reasonable price then this is the place to come.
I do have one moan – we tried to book a room for the night but the hotel would not come down below £85 for the night – far too much for what we wanted and the hotel had empty rooms. Dropping the price to say, £50 for people attending the dance would offer a better service and fill rooms that would otherwise be empty.

Have stayed in the Calcot many times over the past 5 years. Just had a two night stay. Room and bathroom very clean, friendly efficient staff and good value for the weekend deal. Will return in February.

Just returned from a great christmas party night with a stay-over at the Calcot. This is probably the third or forth event we have been to here and so we had very high expectations which were met in full. This time we went to one of the public party nights with a three course meal and dance/disco.
There was a good choice on the menu with generous portions and the staff were very attentive.
Good cross-section of people on the dance floor which was well filled without being packed.
At the end of the evening we went back our room which was on the side of the hotel and very quiet.
The room was to a good standard with everything you would expect.
Went home happy, if a little hung-over, after a full English breakfast.
We will return, but might not wait until next Christmas!
