Conveniently located near the main motorway, so it worked out for a one night stop over on our journey. Having it's own parking lot (free parking) was a plus too. The staff was friendly when we checked in. The room was a bit on the small size and in need of repair (one window was even cracked). The shower was... More

This hotel, with its own parking, is located about 5 miles from the M4. On the plus side, my room was a reasonable size and equipped with a telephone, trouser press, a safe, hair drier and usual tea / coffee making facilities. Though I didn't try the evening meal there appeared to be a good range, with prices between £6.95... More

Food is fantastic!!! and really good portion size. Veggie menu is great, lots of choice for all tastes. The service from the bar made with a pony tail no glasses, found it all too much trouble to serve you. Very very rude on more than a few visits to the bar to lots of the people we were with. The...

Made welcome on our arrival. Rooms are basic but acceptable. Can be a bit noisy until about half an hour after closing. The accommodation is fairly close to a main road so there is some traffic noise. Breakfast was good and filling. We were not too keen on the tea being in a thermos. Apart from that all was fine....

Having stayed at many B&B's and hotels all over the UK on business I hardly ever summit reviews. However on this occasion it was necessary. The room absolutely stank of cigarette smoke!!! It was so over powering it kept me awake most of the night. I did complain, but there were no other rooms available, so I didn't have any... More

My husband and I come from Swindon, having left 15 years ago, so we occasionally visit. This visit was mainly for an 18th birthday meal at The Crown on a Saturday night. So we booked for Friday and Saturday night for convenience. The pub is very dated as was the room and a bit surprising as this is an Arkells... More

Used to be one of our favorite places to dine on a sat. Now, half the tables are reserved for the evening even if you get there early afternoon ! Had to settle for a wobbly table, no others available ! We both ordered steak and ale pie which we have enjoyed before. Today's offering, after a long wait ,... More

A little disappointed by this pub with rooms. Our initial welcome was great as was breakfast thw first morning. However it seems that Saturday night bar person was having a bad night and was unwelcoming, this continued at Sunday morning breakfast with poor service and a bad attitude from the waitress. Sunday night improved fortunately. The rooms are basic and... More

Nice building, reasonably presented. Only real criticisms is that breakfast did not start until 8am on a Saturday and the bar staff were vacuuming during breakfast. Otherwise a nice room and a comfortable stay and good food
