    Stayed here for one night. Room clean and staff friendly. Breakfast ok. Unfortunately hardly got any sleep as the guests next door were up all night. The hotel is right in town near the bars so if you want a quite night and sleep don't bother staying here.

    Very clean hotel and centrally located near to the train station and town centre. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the usual HIE fittings. Drove past it first time and it can be difficult to find if arriving by car. Only a small place to park your car at the entrance, you then go to reception and drop your bags... More

    I use this hotel regularly as an overnight stop off on my way west and while I may not have initially thought of Swindon being a stop off of choice I have to say I owe my colleague one for suggesting this.

    Really welcoming friendly staff, hot drinks available in reception 24hrs a day. Clean warm comfortable room with sockets by the bed. Really impressed, puts the Holiday Inns in Lincoln and portsmouth to shame! They could learn a lot from this place.
