Stayed for one night, on site parking available. Room size was more than adequate, staff very helpful and pleasant. Easy access to the rooms via fire escape saves you having go through the pub. Ate in the restaurant very nice Grilled Lemon Sole but it does get busy. Good location and plenty of pubs to visit in the town

Not a bad place to stay for £50 a night. Overall the rooms are clean and comfortable, although in need of a bit of an update and refresh. Bathroom was certainly a bit tired, with peeling paint and rusting around the bathtub. Can't say I slept all that well, but then again we stayed on a Friday so perhaps the... More

Lovely property, right in the town of Swindon. Stopped there for 1 night on the way through and is fantastic value for money. Great selection of ales and draught lagers. Rooms where comfortable and had everything needed.

Practicalities : Car park round the back – turn down the road to the right side of the hotel. Give reg to reception and you can park for free. Pretty sure there's no lift so if you can't manage the stairs this isn't for you. Location : Old Town is about a mile from the centre of Swindon but has... More

This a great pub and serves great food. Rooms (having stayed in several over several visits for work) all seem a bit old and tatty, and all needs some work, beds are comfy and most the staff seem very nice and pleasant. Internet isnt throughout the hotel, and isn't brilliant anywhere for that matter, its not to badly placed, pretty... More

Yes the pub was busy and noisy but we... More

Where do I start? We stayed here for a long weekend and it was the longest weekend! This is not a hotel, its a very busy and noisy pub with rooms above! There is no reception to check in, you stand at the end of the bar waiting to be seen. Our room was directly above the beer garden which... More

Couldn't be bothered to cook breakfast for our guests so tried breakfast at here for the first time; brilliant value, less than £5 for each meal (all day breakfasts and eggs benedict) , food was good, staff were friendly. Also my son left his iPad and they picked it up from our table outside and kept hold of it, which... More

Very disappointed to say the least. I requested a quite room when checking in and was told a room at the front would be quieter than one above the kitchen. The room was extremely noisey from the lorries and cars on the main road and also from other room doors slamming shut as well as the creaky hallway floor boards!... More

Superb breakfast and evening meal. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Hall carpets really do need to be shampood or better still replaced. Pub has a great atmosphere. Situated near the theatre which was where I needed to be. Staff were very helpful.
