The view from the bedroom was beautiful. Car parking and the flowers and chocolates that were left in the room were a nice gesture

Nice hotel, refurbished at 2017 with lovely staff. Just one small downside was as bathroom wasn’t clean up to standard. Be aware as there is no coffee or tea facilities in the room and you will need to go every single time down to reception, where you find two cofffee machines ready to serve you. We stay over NYE and have couple of requests (like ice bucket, extra pillows, etc) and nothing was problem. Literally, in meantime when I make two coffees, and take my way back to room, pillows was on the way too and meet me at the lift :)

Pros: Location, comfort , friendly staff.
Cons: More staff at breakfast time and serving a full English breakfast as well as continental.
Location: In the town near the train station and bus stops.
Lovely hotel in good location but unable to cope with breakfast demands. Granted they had 2 coach parties at the time we stayed but they lacked food at breakfast time and variety! Although advertised there is no bar or lounge area? On the plus side coffee / tea was readily available if you didn’t mind poppin down to Reception.

Hi Kay Thank you for your feedback. James

Good location with easy parking but very noisy

The hotel has a multi storey car park opposite which is fairly reasonably priced. The hotel itself is modern and my room was well kept and clean. Only problem was there was no way of controlling the temperature in my room and it was freezing. There are also large gaps under the doors to each room so cold air and light from the corridor comes in. Also a lot of people must use it as a place to sleep after a night out in town so from 2.30-3.30am it was so loud with doors slamming and people talking and screaming down the corridors

A very new hotel with perfect service of the staff

Pros: Hotel staff, some customised settings in the hotel room (e.g. TV showing the customer's name), the complimentary drinks area at the lounge
Cons: Only the overhead shower didn't work very well sometimes.
Location: The hotel is quite close to the Swindon rail station (about 10 mins walk from the station) and Swindon Designer Outlet is nearby.
The hotel is very new and the hotel room is definitely stylish and comfy. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The hotel has a self-serving complimentary drinks area serving coffee and tea 24 hours a day. The quality of the drinks were quite nice. I was very impressed by the hotel environment and service. I highly recommend this hotel to people who go to Swindon.

Tavallaan uudistettu, mutta mukana myös vanhoja elementtejä kuten kylpyamme. Aamiainen ei ollut kovin hyvä.
