I stayed for a number of weeks recently as I was working in Swindon. I initially stayed at the Goddards for a week but was a little disappointed and walked up the road to 20 at The Kings and stayed the next week and then booked subsequent weeks.
The owners took over a year or so ago (so I believe) and have made some vast improvements and are still working very hard to continiously improve the facilities and have just recently made an outdoor BBQ area and bar in the hope we may see a summer.
From what I understand of how it used to be it is completely different.
The main area, bar and downstairs are very nicely done and the rooms are clean but basic but I believe this is the next to be brought up to their high standards.
The staff are very friendly and the food is excellent. They have also recently changed the chefs and working very hard to create new menus despite the ones I tried being excellent already. As I have stayed there for a few weeks I have ate elsewhere but only to get a change of scenery. I find it hard to take myself elsewhere with the quality and price being so good. Some nights there are deals e.g. Wed night is steak night.
During the week the hotel and bar are quiet but at weekends I believe it transforms into more night club (although I have not been there at weekends).
I would highly recommend for the friendly atmosphere, great food, affordable prices and good clean accommodation.
