Hi chrisbQ5442MH, Thank you for leaving us a review on Tripadvisor after your recent visit. The hotel is shortly going to be going through a renovation so the age will not show as it does now. It's great to read that you enjoyed your breakfast with us, that'll make the chefs very happy to read. It sounds like you stayed in one of our smaller rooms from your description, next time ask about our standard rooms, you may find these more to your liking. It's nice to see that our recently purchased improved double glazed windows are having the desired effect of keeping out the noise. Kind Regards Best Western Calcot Hotel
