Rooms are good, clean and inviting. The standard process for entry and registration is more typical for a short stay, uninviting for a holiday. Food was good but simple, hospitality was good at the bar/reception. The location is good for the train station or town but the parking is a bit cumbersome for anyone with lotion bags.

This hotel is OK for a night-- came to a deserted counter after figuring out that we had to go up a few floors via lift, and we had a hard time finding a place to recharge our phone, but the room was clean and just fine for the one-night stay. And, one of the two lifts is closed to... More

I had chosen this hotel specifically because it had 24 hour checkin and I knew I would be arriving after midnight after taking part in a sports event. I had also warned the hotel in advance that this would be the case. After I checked in, on opening the door of the room I had been given, at 1am, I... More

Stayed there with family. A few things to note: if you are parking using the location code given by the hotel it will not match the location code at the parking. It threw me off.

When arriving you need to go in a lift to the reception away from the ground floor. All bedrooms are above this level, takes some getting used too. Warming & obliging from all staff, rooms nice & functional. Dinner menu adequate but brekkie is restricted from your normal arrangement.

I was in Swindon for the night with some friends as we were performing in a concert at the nearby museum. On arrival we left our car in the drop-off zone while we checked in - this was quick and efficient - and then we moved it to the nearby station, which was easy and only a minute's walk. The... More

Visit Swindon on a regular occasion for multiple nights most weeks. This isn't my first choice of hotel to stay with and it was clear why.

Nice, big comfortable rooms with a big comfortable bed. Only minus is the shortage, and positioning of plug sockets; alarm clock, phone (charging) etc are not within reach of the bed. Every other aspect I'd rate as very good.

Easy to reach Holiday Inn Express about 10 minutes walk from Swindon train station (driving may take a little longer due to one-way system). Location is the main plus here, but bear in mind it's also located very close to some of the nosier pubs in the town centre - if you aren't a sound sleeper ask for a room... More
