My wife and I have just returned from a night at the Calcot where we stayed and enjoyed a Four Seasons tribute night (New Jersey Jukebox).
We had a room at the back of the hotel so road noise wasn't a problem (very quiet). We also had plenty of cool air flowing into the room from the windows, so it wasn't stuffy.
Good powerful shower with plenty of hot water and shampoo/shower gel supplied in the all-in-one dispensers.
Breakfast was very tasty with some fresh melon, juices, yoghurts, etc, plenty of toast of offer along with a decent cup of tea (tea/coffee facilities also in room).
The cooked items were available on the self-service counter along with eggs (fried, poached or scrambled). All in all, a tasty filling breakfast and a good nights sleep.
The function that we attended was also very enjoyable (well done the four lads in "New Jersey Jukebox"!) and the food served (table-service) was very tasty. This is the second event we have attended here and will be returning for a family birthday party with a group of 11 persons, such is the quality and value for money on offer.
The only drawback is the price of drinks at the bar! £4.95 for a bottle of Crabbie's Ginger Beer is well over the top!
Well done staff and band!
