Room was good but noisy. The reception, bar and restaurant are all merged into one open space so zero character. We had a deal £79 for a room with evening meal and breakfast sadly neither was worth having. Staff were friendly and very helpful and polite however that haven't got anything to work with in terms of facilities and food.

If you go to their website, it says this hotel has been refurbished. Don't think so. The carpets are threadbare, the windows single glazed and draughty, The whole place looks and feels like it is stuck in the 80's. The bar has all the charm of an airport departure lounge. .The ensuite bathroom was tiny, and the shower was pathetic.... More

Like many UK Holiday Inns, this was built in the 1970s as a Forte Posthouse, a much-lamented chain. And like many other Posthouses (eg. Norwich, Ipswich, York) it was built on the edge of town and set in extensive lawns, so it is quiet and almost rural in feel. The external atmosphere is very spacious. Internally, you don't expect surprises... More

Another great stay here always stay here when visiting my dad always a warm welcome and friendly staff. Comfortable rooms clean and tidy,the only down side is as a smoker there is no heating such as a lamp outside for when you go outside for a smoke much needed this time of year apart from that I will be returning

Do you like beige? Yes? Then this is the hotel for you. Everything about this place is mediocre; the functionally bland rooms with their tiny en-suites, the price, the food, the location, the frustratingly slow wifi and the colour scheme. Beigeness. And that's not even a real word. The website description starts with the excitement inducing sentence: 'This welcoming hotel... More

Great place to stay room very clean and with a very large bed. The room made up everyday and towels fresh everyday. Staff very friendly nothing seems to be an issue for them. Would recommend the meals lots to choose from and large portions.

I stayed at the Swindon Holiday Inn last night. The rooms and corridors were a bit tired and old (as some others have mentioned), and I ended up in a room which was really far from the reception, with no help with bags to my room etc. Generally the staff and the hotel were OK, however when I turned up...

Stayed here for a week whilst working locally. Didn't get too see much of the hotel or sample the breakfasts, it was literally somewhere to sleep. The room was good, with a large flat screen television and the bed sizeable and comfortable. My only complaint was that the shower was pitifully under-powered which was disappointing. Other than that all was... More

We stayed there for two nights and was a little disappointed. We just needed a few days away and as we have always stayed at Holiday Inn this was not what we expected. The rooms were so so. We had a room at the top witch smelt very musty, however we were moved the following day to a ground floor... More

We had a 2 night stay in this modern comfortable hotel. The room was of a very good standard, in a quiet area in suburbs of Swindon. The staff were all helpful, efficient and friendly in reception or in restaurant at breakfast time. The breakfast was a lovely varied buffet which was delicious and hot and plenty of it. Also...
