The only good thing about this hotel was the location. The bed was terrible to sleep on; it felt like I was sleeping on a concrete floor. There is a very loud night club behind the hotel, so if you’re looking to get an early nights rest, good luck with that!! The music from the club was soo loud that... More

Rooms were terribly overheated, air conditioning wasn't working, and a night club next door was so loud that it could be heard distinctly through the closed windows, until well after 5 a.m. The lifts seem to have a mind of their own and will open the doors when they feel like it rather than when you want them to.

Upon arriving we believed this hotel was okay for the money we paid, however were disappointed at the location of the lonely car park and the cost being incorrect for this service. However, how wrong we were! Unless you can sleep through anything do not bother staying here, it is situated right next to a night club which they fail... More

I stayed at this hotel one night, the parking advertised is the local railway station car park where you can get a small discount which costs £6 instead of £8.40. The day I stayed here it was a very warm day outside in the mid 20s. The first thing you notice when you get upstairs to the reception on how... More

Just had a pleasant weekend in Swindon staying at this hotel. It is what you would expect of a hotel in the centre of a town. Probably not the nicest bit of Swindon and it was noisy in the night (there was a Weatherspoon pub very near). However it was within walking distance to the railway museum and shopping outlet...

I was travelling just after midnight on my way to a cousin's home and decided that I was too tired and would have to stop for the night. Therefore, I had no reservation.

Hotel is enough. Not bad at all. Rooms very small, there is no closet, poor in amenities. Close to the shops and train station but not in the best part of the city, if its not for business is better to be in the old town of Swindown. Suficiente. No esta mal, habitaciones pequeñas y sin armario. Muy cercano a... More
