Breakfast was mainly English but had fruit and a few other options available. Not a 5 star property but perfectly usable for a 1... More

Conveniently located in the heart of Old town, dead centre on Victoria Road, bang opposite a bus stop, Swandown B&B is one of the best-located and reasonably priced hotels in Swindon. I reached this place at 11 PM but the management was kind enough to accommodate me well past the closing time of the front desk. There are quite a... More

I stayed in this B&B for a week on a work trip. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable and the breakfast was good. There is a downstairs lounge with comfortable sofas an a desk. The Wifi worked well in my room and in the lounge. The owners were very helpful and I would recommend this B&B. Unfortunately, due... More

Stayed for 2 nights September - 2015. The included breakfast was really nice and the service was spot on. The family who run the hotel are really friendly. The location is very close to the old town and down the hill is a whole host of restaurants, a cinema and main Swindon high street. Very clean rooms and accurately pictured... More

1 night stay in the family room. Car parking and breakfast included. Breakfast small compared to other places we have stayed. No mushrooms - when we queried this we were told they had run out. Fair enough but it would have been nice to have been told this as they served rather than waiting to be asked and then offering... More

Very friendly owners, nice breakfast, comfortable clean rooms and cheap. The owners go above and beyond for you. My only negative was the rooms can get a bit chilly, and the tea and coffee sachets aren't replaced... but apart from that very nice and welcoming hotel.
