Hello 1rikster, Thank you for your review of your recent stay at our hotel. We have now tracked down the room and the bedroom curtain concerned and will act appropriately. As you have kindly stated in your review, you have stayed at our hotel on many occasions and encountered a good experience with rooms being clean, tidy and with good water pressure in our showers. Indeed even on this occasion you found the room otherwise good. We can therefore only apologise that the water stain found on the inside of your bedroom curtain spoiled your latest visit. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Kind Regards Best Western Calcot Hotel

Hi MadJecMac, Thank you for leaving us a review after your recent stay with us. It's great to read that you enjoyed your breakfast with us. In regards to your room, we're baffled as to why you thought you'd be having a "business suite" we don't advertise our rooms this way and wouldn't. Reading your description it seems that you stayed in one of our "small standard rooms", we advertise them as this as they're smaller than our standard rooms. We're sorry that someone informed you it would be a "business suite" but this isn't something we'd advertise or our staff would tell you. We do hope you'll stay with us again in the future, we'd suggest booking direct with the hotel to make sure that you've gained the correct information about what we can offer. Kind Regards Best Western Calcot Hotel

Hello JohnBsTrips, Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Firstly thank you for your kind comments with regards to the hotel being clean, fresh, in a great location and being served with a freshly cooked breakfast. With regards to your points; reference being disturbed by noisy guests sadly disturbing your sleep, with the General Manager away on holiday, your issues were taken up by one of our Directors who replied to you directly on two occasions offering sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused. As he stated in his letters, you did raise some valid points and promised that the hotel would review its policies as a consequence. The door lock alarm system, which is used now in many hotels, is an added safety feature to remind guests that their door has not been closed securely. Thank you for bringing this to our attention and once again offer our apologies. Kind Regards Best Western Calcot Hotel
