Served a purpose. Let down by room service.

Another Motown night!

Great night on Friday at Motown evening. We all had lovely rooms and food and service was very good and Tony (DJ) was (even though he was not very well) fabulous as always. All my friends had a wonde... more

Thank you for leaving a review about your recent stay and attendance at our Motown night. Tony is a true professional so it's great to see that despite the man flu he was able to keep you up and dancing all night long. We're glad to see that you had a lovely birthday with us. I'm sure we will see you again!


30/01/2016 Niklaos, Snaith, United Kingdom

Very dated décor, miserable serving staff and stingy portions. If you feel comfortable in the 1970s, or have an early morning meeting that requires access to the M4, then perhaps this is a good choice... more

Dear Niklaos Thank you for taking the time to post your very first review on Trip Advisor. Thank you also for pointing out how convenient our hotel is with respect to the M4 and other road networks. I am however somewhat taken aback by your random comment that the hotel as having ‘Delusions of Grandeur’. The Best Western Calcot Hotel is an approved AA 3 Star hotel and does not profess to be anything more in any of its literature. With respect to the rate I would be interested in hearing which Premier Inn is ‘a third of the price’ in this area. As to the portion size, we have not been made aware of any issues as no comments were made to our staff on the evening. Thank you once again for writing a review and I am sorry that some aspects of your stay were not positive.

Convenient & comfortable

25/01/2016 WilliamG33, Wadebridge, United Kingdom

For starters - easy to locate about i mile from the M4, Ample parking but note I arrived on a Sunday evening! I imagine the BW Calcot does well as primarily a business/function hotel rather than cater... more

It's great to see that the food was to your liking during you stay, and we hope that you'll see us again soon!
