Travel Blogs from Calcot
So this is my first post to this blog, wide awake far too early and a very excited Chris next to me, makes a change from the usual grump on a Monday morning when he used to have to get up this early to driving back to Plymouth for work. This is my first working day ever of proper unemployment, and with my flat rented and no car and my gizmo living with mum I feel strangely free. I would like to say thanks to everyone who has helped make ...
... o'clock, Kronenbourg o'clock (ok so that one is not so British but you get the picture!) Thanks to everyone who came and made it such a special day especially those who travelled from so far with children in tow it was great to see you all. Special thanks to both our families just for being so great and to Jeremy for being the official photographer. Next stop Rio de Janeiro ...
... guess is the same thing we often have difficulties with, it always moves forward; this is both a blessing and a curse.
Ok now this may seem completely from left field but here it is anyways....
Have you ever been half finished something you're eating only to realize that if you paid attention in the first place and knew the substitute ingredient they put ...
... had produced 4 kittens in the night! What a welcome home! Girls excited and Scarlett has played nurse maid all day. The unpacking was pushed aside as we gathered to watch the tinies and mum. Super cute, super small we're wondering what to call them; Milka? Marco? Nenzing? ...
We are more than ready to escape from the winter weather and a run of disasters, mainly domestic breakages and blockages. Sadie is already safely at her holiday home in Cornwall with Sassy and all that is left to do is finish the 3 step procedure to de-moth our stair carpet. I don the mask and gloves and flip the top of the aerosol. This quite spectacularly shoots some noxious vapor into the stairwell and I pull off my mask and gloves and back out of the house. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Calcot Manor
Staying at Calcot was brilliant. The staff were so helpful, setting beautiful, roms lovely and the food was yummy. In fact, it was absolutely faultless. Our daughter is only 13 weeks old so we were a bit anxious about going on holiday but we needn't have worried at all. We were able to leave our little girl in the creche whilst we luxuriated in the Spa so we really feel like we have had a holiday. I would definitely recommend this family friendly spa hotel to anyone, without hesitation.
Hard to find fault
Set in picturesque and peaceful surroundings we loved this venue. The staff and in particular those in the two restaurants were some of the most friendly that we have come across in the UK. The food was of very high standard with plenty of choice. If , like us you prefer to dine in a child free environment then choose the Conservatory. My only criticsm would be if like us you are given the Oxford suite, we found the noise coming from the guests walking around in the suite above a trifle annoying. However we were given another suite after we complained without fuss. Overall this is great venue and we would reccommend it to anyone.
Great if you have kids
Stayed one night at Calcot Manor so we could attend a wedding in the area. Can't say I'd dash for a return visit. Don't get me wrong the hotel is lovely, superb rooms, lovely clean bathrooms and very helpful staff, but if it's a peaceful romantic weekend you want with your partner then Calcot should have a question mark against it. The breakfast room the following morning was full of children under 3 running around and doing all things young children do.
I commented this to a friend who lives locally and it was confirmed that Calcot like to push the family friendly element. NOT that this is wrong by any means, quite the opposite, but I was just slightly surprised when having read so many reviews about how romantic Calcot was, i didn't imagine eating breakfast in a creche.
Wonderful and romantic
I took my husband here for his birthday and we only stayed one night. we went on a sunday offer which i thought was superb value for the quality of the hotel. other 5 star hotels i had considered were alot more expensive.
our room and bathroom was beautiful, the food was wonderful and the spa facilities are amazing - you must try the hot tub in the rain and wind - quite an experience. We will certainly go back - i even tried to book for christmas
Lovely place to stay
The setting is beautiful. The room was very clean and spacious and traditional (more of a suite). The staff were so friendly and nice which makes the stay all the more pleasant.
We stayed on a £259/night package which includes £60 spa and £70 toward food in the conservatory restaurant. This was a good deal but i would find it pricey at he weekend where just the room rate would be over £200. The food was really good but pricey.
Great Place to stay
Just back from a 2 night stay at Calcot Manor. Lovely place - lots of facilities including the famous outdoor hot tub which great fun even at 0 degrees C outside! Excellent food and service generally very good. Not cheap but worth it. Only minus point was noisy room (noise from corridor outside and adjoining rooms). Some rooms being refurbished - ours hadn't been but still of good standard.
Would highly recommend this place - you can pay not much less for a far lower standard in this part of the world.
Great courtyard hot tub!
If you like spa hotels that are not overpriced or pretentious and serve great food then Calcot is for you. The place attracts couples and families but the two are cleverly kept seperate which we appreciated. The decor in the bedrooms is tired but they said that they are planning to refirb. All the public areas are recently done and are smart without loosing the old world charm of the building. The Spa is completely new and very well done. Good treatments, nice pool (one indoor and one outdoor which they dont really mention in the brochure). But the best bit for me was drinking champagne in the hot tub. Very decadent! Service a bit hit and miss, but not so it would spoil the visit.
We stayed here for our wedding anniversary. It was fantastic. Very personal, had fab room away from it all. Spa was superb Meal Lovely staff all great. Thoroughly reccommend
Calcot Manor is an excellent choice for a weekend break. It is a really nice hotel and there is plenty to do in the area. Our room was of a good standard with some nice extras e.g fruit, home made biccies and tea and coffe making facilities, nice toiletries, good view and very quiet. The gym was very good, spa good, fantastic indoor pool, beauty treatments excellent (book in advance), outdoor hot tub next to a log fire. We spent most of the day in the spa using the facilities, even the changing area is spacious, clean and with good facilities. The communal areas are attractively furnished, lovely sitting rooms with log fires, magazines etc. The food was fine but not fantastic, service was very good. We haven't got kids but if you have they have a childrens play centre etc and excellent services for them - yet the kids don't get in the way of the other guests. Highly recommended.
Went to Calcot as a surprise for my Mum's 50th.
Lovely set up - the rooms are all individually decorated, so worth asking when you book for them to describe the room. The first one we were put in was 'country' style whereas the room next door was extremely modern. It's worth checking so you get what you like.
Really nice lounge area is great for relaxing in, and the conservatory restaurant was lovey for a special dinner. It was nice because though it was a Spa hotel, the staff had no pretentions - very friendly and down to earth. Talking of the Spa - really was special. Memories of our complete family sitting in the outside hot tub in the middle of November will stay with me for ever - it was marvellous! Famly members who had treatments all said they were great - make sure you book though - my girlfriend and I thought we'd grab cancellation on the day - there weren't any and we were VERY disappointed!
