Dear Ray H, Firstly let me thank you for taking the time to leave a review on Trip Advisor. We're sorry to hear that you didn't find certain aspects of your room to your liking As a 3 star hotel we do not provide mini bars or fridges in rooms. If you had required refreshments we do however offer a room service facility. With regards to your ‘room to room’ sound proofing comments, the new owners are taking steps to address this issue which is evident in a few of our rooms. As you may have noticed, we have recently had new windows installed into the majority of our bedrooms which effectively cuts out road noise, however, with the recent spell of unusually hot weather and guests opening windows, the fans provided do not sufficiently cool down a room for which we apologise. Thank you once again for staying at the hotel and we are sorry that elements did not meet your expectations on this occasion Kind Regards Best Western Calcot Hotel
