Stayed here on business and could have given an average rating as easily as very good. From the outside its a real character building. It's handy for Swindon but not in Swindon so that's a real positive. This isn't your standard corporate hotel and for me all the better for that. You could easily find faults but I found it... More

Booked this hotel for a brief one night stay. On arrival we were greeted by a friendly lady (and doggy!) and checked in. When the lady understood that there were three of us, she said this was not allowed... We were confused as we had booked a room for a capacity of 3 people (booking.com). We feel as though we...

If you are looking for the familiarity of a corporate chain hotel this isn't for you. If you're looking for a more individual experience it should be. Although close to Swindon the School House is set in peaceful countryside, near to the M4 but out of earshot. We had a very personal welcome from Fred the dog and then Karen... More

What do you get parents who want and need nothing on their Birthdays ? If they are like mine and at that time of life when they enjoy your company rather than material things, a nice evening out is the answer. Look no further than the School House for fantastic food, brilliant service in a beautiful setting. My parents (garlic... More

Lovely place, great location and very atmospheric. Could have been back at infant school. The food was very good, fresh ingredients nicely cooked and well presented. A party of nineteen adults and not one bad word about the food,the service or the venue. We arrived at 12.30 and left after 4 o'clock, a delightful and leisurely lunch. Small downside, the... More

Stayed in the hotel for one night on a business trip, when I arrived the hotel was lit up on the outside and looked beautiful, a old school house. The hotel was what appears to be in the middle of no were but so close to Swindon you could just take a five minute journey and you would be their.... More

Had a meeting in Malmsbury but unfortunately all the local accommodation was booked so searched further a field and came up with the school house which is in an isolated rural setting. On the positive side the owner Karen was a delight and her dog Fred made our one night stay memorable ! The room was a little on the... More

I had to travel on short notice and booked a room at this hotel online. I was travelling late - due to arrive at midnight - a common occurrence for a business traveller.
