I found Rulfcott Lodge excellent. I was working in Swindon and I found the owners very pleasant and most importantly for my taste, they were not overbearing. They were very accommodating with my changing circumstances and I was allowed to get on with my normal business throughout the week without any interaction. I knew however, that should I have wanted/needed... More

Stayed a few nights at Rulfcott Lodge. As soon as I checked in I was told in no uncertain terms not to expect Breakfast despite it being a "Bed and Breakfast". I was also made to feel guilty for any cleaning done in my room. The couple running the B&B are nice but have no idea how badly they treat... More

We stayed here for two nights. The couple that run the B&B are very nice and helpful. They provided us with valuable tips on where to go and what to do in the area. They customized the breakfast for us :) The location is not very central - it was troublesome for us to get to the B&B the first... More

Absolutely great, extremely helpful and friendly. I didn't have much money to eat out in the evenings so they allowed me to keep some food in the fridge which was very helpful. The room was immaculate and was grateful for a nice warm shower every evening. I have stayed in bed and breakfasts before and had really bad showers but... More

Possibly the best b&b I have ever had the pleasure of using! Owner is accommodating and helpful (she even helped me find a faster way to travel home on a weekend), the rooms are comfortable and spotlessly clean, there is ample parking outside and for me the location was ideal. Finding it can be a problem, although instructions on web... More

I stayed here 5 nights a week for 6 months during a work contract, flying home to Ireland at weekends and was totally satisfied with the friendliness and service of the owners. The rooms were always spotless and the landlord was continually re-decorating the rooms, if they needed it or not. The hearty breakfast would last you all day and... More

I stayed at the Rulfcott for two weeks and it was a wonderful experience. My room looked out over a lovely garden full of flowers and lovely birds. My room was very comfortable and clean as a whistle! Christine and Andy made me feel like family and went way beyond what B&B owners normally do to accomodate guests. I couldn't... More

I stayed in the Rulfcott 5 nights a week for over 12 months while working on a contract in Swindon. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and great value for £ 30 a night. Christine and Andy were always helpful and friendly and a great source of local information, which helped me to feel at home in the area.... More

She knew I was travelling to Swindon that day from Yorkshire via Colchester and the M25, so we exchanged phone numbers. She sympathised at my gruelling journey and apologised that there would be no breakfast as her mother was dying and she was tired out, which I didn't mind, saying I'd bring my own. In the end I knew I... More
