We have stayed here many times as a family - this is one of very few hotels that can accommodate a family of 5 within one very spacious room! On this occasion we had two of these huge rooms, one for ourselves and the other for my daughter and her friends for her birthday celebrations. Nothing was too much trouble... More

My husband and I stayed in here for a weekend in early July. We choose to upgrade to a club level room, which was nice, but I had it higher expectations. The room was a good size, but the decor was very dark in a room where the window was blocked by a shrub. Our room wasn't cleaned until 3pm... More

Stayed here in Feb 2015 (Fri - Sun) visiting friends in Swindon. We had a double room (king size bed) but had to switch on arrival due to the room not being clean. We then had to swap again as the second room was a double bed. They then upgraded us to a lovely room that we were very happy... More

Sticky tables! The food is decent - a bit pricey for a pub. I know it's in a hotel, but still. The staff are lovely and always very helpful. I've always had good experiences there except for when some loud tables of drunken mid twenty people get pretty annoying - nobody ever ask them to stop disturbing others. All in... More

So when I last reviewed this hotel back in 2004, my review was entitled "don't stay in the summer". So here we are, 11 years later in mid July. The hotel has seen a top to bottom refurb and rebrand from De Vere to Village and is really quite nice. The prices are reasonable too and it is now clearly... More

We had a fantastic overnight stay for my 60th birthday. We booked the Village Urban Resort Swindon because it was reasonably easy access for family members travelling from London, south Wales and north-west England. Our local Village (Warrington) has always been very consistent, so we felt we were safe. Well "safe" doesn't do justice ... from start to finish this... More

Stayed here overnight on the way to Cornwall and was pleased with the room being spacious and the bed was very comfortable. I was not too impressed with a large crack in wash basin and we were not impressed when housekeeping knocked on door at 8:15am when we were still getting up wanting to clean room.
