Stayed in the hotel for business, as I often do, as it has a proper gym and the rooms are conducive for work (make sure you ask for a non-sharing room). Tonight's dinner was especially good, the special being asparagus followed by pork belly - all well seasoned and cooked. Even the music in the restaurant was above average!

We've stayed at this hotel several times whilst in the Swindon area and always been pleased. It's 5 minutes drive from the M4 and 10 minutes drive from the McArthur Glen designer shopping outlet. The staff are really friendly and helpful. I agree with some of the other reviews regarding the pub and restaurant food. It's not wonderful and a... More

Great rooms, bathroom, bed, tv etc and good parking. You have the cinema, bowling, laser quest etc in the village so lots of options if you want to be entertained in the evening. The gym was fantastic and it also has a good sized pool although I didn't use it. The issue here is the staff. I stayed 2 nights... More

So the place looks great. Rooms are good. But... The service was not. It actually disappointed us because it is three star and I always heard this place was pretty good and worth paying the expensive room prices for breakfast and leisure uses. We have stayed here a few time because we like the location the most. The problems we... More

This hotel was great for a two night stay. My room was exceptionally clean but being a standard room it was fairly basic though it had everything I needed apart from biscuits! My main complaint would be the temperature in the rooms, admittedly it was the hottest day of the year but my room was 35C which along with the... More

Stayed here overnight. Initial impression wasn't too positive - it's on a retail type park - but we had a rapid check in, room was spacious and comfy.

Rooms are nice. Bathroom was a bit dated tho. Bed was very comfortable. Didn't expect that for a 4* modern hotel. Staff are quite friendly. Stranded buffet breakfast. Only downside mainly is it's quite far out.

From the outside it doesn't look a great hotel but once inside you begin to experience the familiar Village style hospitality. Decor is modern and welcoming, staff extremely friendly and rooms very modern and comfortable. As with most Village hotels the leisure centre is extensive and well equipped.
