“Convenient hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Travelling from Cardiff to London Airport for flight home, spent one nite in Swindon. Hotel was convenient had all the necessary amenities. Good food at reasonable prices and a well furnished gym.
Only complaint was that the mattress was lumpy.
Staff was great and very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Higher rooms supposed to be quieter.

We stayed here after attending a ball in the hotel. The staff at the check in were helpful and the dinner served at the event was tasty, hot and well served by attentive staff. Breakfast was very good with an excellent choice of cooked and healthy dishes.

The only disappointment was the bedroom; the mattress seemed to be well worn, the shower pressure was weak and the heating was noisy (it was a very cold night for late April). However, the weekend rate was very good value for money and we would stay here again.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for one night as a stopover en route to the Badminton Horse Trials. It was booked through a web site at a greatly reduced price I am glad to say. The staff were very friendly and helpful but were let down by their management. We didn't have time to take advantage of what seemed to be a very good fitness suite but did take an evening meal there. Between being seated in a virtually empty restaurant and getting a very average main course took well over and hour, nearer an hour and a half. Granted there was a function on at the same time but a hotel of such a size should have been able to cope. Coupled with the fact they had no dry ginger at all of any kind as a mixer at the bar left me feeling a little unhappy but I had only paid half the regular room rate. The room was again average, nothing special. Between Premier Inn full price and this at full price, the former wins hands down. Its an OK hotel for a stop over.

This Hotel is very nice, comfortable accomadtion but do not use the Restaurant in the evening if they are busy as you will wait around an hour for each course. The food choices are not very good, they are small portions for the price you pay. The Breakfast was very good with alot of choice which was buffet style.

Room Tip: We asked for quiet rooms, which they were and the rooms were on the 3rd floor,

Stayed for Badminton, good value, enjoyed the pool, food ok, room good, shower really weedy. I have long hair and it took twice as long to wash it which was disappointing but it was the only thing that was sub standard. All the staff were very helpful.

We stayed here May bank holiday weekend
Nice hotel, we had a meal in the restaurant which was average! The crispy belly of pork wasn't crispy it was soggy and the pork was very chewy ! The waitress assured us she would pass on our comments to the chef, but we didn't get any feedback.
Not one of Marriott's best hotels but not too expensive either.
Rooms were fine, bar area was nice
Breakfast was chaotic but it was a bank holiday weekend

Really easy to book, accomodated us in a quiet room as we had our dog with us (some rooms allow this) with a rollaway bed for our 2 year old. Friendly staff, clean room & hotel, good breakfasts, enjoyed the pool, we also had no problem finding hotel, as others had reported. Had a fab break. Only negative for us was lack of choice for veggie meals in main resturant, so we ate out at night.
