Location is great just 5 minutes walk from the station and the town centre. Fabulous welcome and the staff really were great both on check in and check out. The room was the normal you would expect but in desperate need of some TLC ... Air conditioning wasn't working, soap container by sink broken, shower tray didn't drain to the... More

Very good - location was good, central Swindon near the railway station. Room was excellent, large, spacious, well equipped. The bar is good with a reasonable selection of bar snacks and drinks. The hotel doesn't have a car park but there are others nearby.

Only downside to an outstanding vacation was air conditioning wasn't working... gave us a fan. Great location for shopping and traveling to the Cotswolds. You do have to walk two blocks to park your car (pay 7 pounds a day).

Thanks very much your review, I hope that you enjoyed your vacation and had a pleasant journey home. As you will have seen from the advertisement at the front of the hotel we charge £6.00 for a parking ticket, sadly we are not able to control the parking charges at other car-parks in the city but our designated service is...

I have brand loyalty to the Holiday Inn and hold a IHG Rewards Club card so when I needed to stay in Swindon with work this was my first choice. When in my room air conditioning was not working.

Ignore the negative comments. This Hotel was absolutely fine, clean room/linen/towels, less than 5 mins walk to the station for a business appointment in Bristol, and 2 min walk and you are in the shopping area or slightly further onto the outlet centre. As mentioned, there is no on site parking, but again you park at the railway station car... More

When checking in I didn't get asked if I wanted extra IHG points or a free beer, which is normal - I was asked what I had chosen when I checked out. As I checked out at 10:00 in the morning a free beer wasn't really an option. The room was average - quite worn, very warm and the aircon... More
