We stayed for 2 nights to attend a family wedding nearby. We had a big corner room on the 2nd floor which was really useful as several of us were getting ready together, so things like having an iron & ironing board in your room ( plus room to use it), big mirrors and a big bathroom also with 2...

I stayed here for one night on business so didn't check in until late. I was asked if I wanted to use the facilities but I declined. I ordered room service which came with a charge and although they didn't have what I initially ordered (they had run out of steak) the meal was still very nice and fairly reasonably... More

Me and my boyfriend have stayed at many village hotels around. Swindon village hotel is by far the best, the staff are so friendly and the rooms are great, and for the price you can't go wrong. We decided to have food in Buca di Beppo Italian restaurant in the hotel. And the food was amazing, we had 10% off... More

Stayed at the hotel a number of times for a convention. As always the venue was excellent. The room (1) was comfortable with a good sized bed (2), spacious desk area with well positioned power points. The bathroom is large (3). The bath has a glass screen, far better than the plastic ones. The bar/cafe area features a large bar... More

I spent three days in this large and comfortable hotel as an attendee of a mad literary convention. We engaged in weird rituals, held marches dressed as characters from books, and secreted lobsters all over the place. (Don't ask!) But the staff took it all in their stride, with humour and good-will, which went a long way to making the... More

I was pleasantly pleased that I had a large room with a sofa overlooking garden area. The shower was a wonderful power shower.This was a standard double and I would definitely stay again. The Italian restaurant served reasonably priced food and there was plenty to look at in the décor.
