Booked very last minuite with the offer of a £45 room on laterooms. Swift call to the hotel and got the same terms over the phone. Hotel had the slightly dowdy appearance of many such venues, and had the feel of needing a lick of paint in places. Once we'd got past the various methods of entry depending on the time of day, I was shown to a suprisingly well appointed room, albeit on a busy high st (pointed out by the staff) The ensuite bathrokm had a shower over bath, which imho was too dished, and the shower head too far away - looks like an accident waiting to happen. Didn't eat there but used the excellent old town location to sample the pleasant midweek nightlife of swindon, in this case a jazz trio in the old bank. Note, the location is nof so handy if you're walking from the train station. Slept like a baby on a supremely comfortable bed, woke up, predictably by traffic. Paid £6 for the breakfast which incuded an undercooked sausage, returned to me microwaved into oblivion... And it was going so well! - if you're caught out in Swindon and on a budget, you'll get a better deal here than the big chains, so may be worth a try.
