Great wee find, very friendly and helpful staff and a great large room with ensuite. Fabulous value for what we paid but for some reason despite being on the edge of Swindon this place lacks confidence and is only a deep clean away from acheiving the prices it should be achieving for rooms. We had great comfie and clean beds, but the carpet was either done or required a good fax. A minimal bit of fresh paint would cure what was a good modern and well fitted room. So basically get your act together, sort some minor issues and get the room price up to where it should be.
We arrived around 3 o'clock and went to the bar where we signed in and were shown to an excellent courtyard room which was very pretty and large and comfortable. The ensuite was very clean and well appointed and the bedroom was comfortable with a king sized bed, other seating, TV and tea/coffee available. The bed itself was extremely comfortable. We thought the room would be noisy as it was in the main courtyard housing the microbrewery and pretty gardens for pub guests but it was not.
I came down to watch Swindon Town play and to go to a party at the stadium in the evening. The early check in was ideal (12pm rather than the usual 3pm with other hotel chains) as it was for my wife and I plus our 5-month-old daughter, so she had somewhere to stay whilst I was at the football. We were allowed to book a double room and bring a travel cot for our daughter to sleep in. Nice hotel and nice room, clean and inviting.
We booked this last minute and paid a good price for family room with breakfast. On arrival the lady on reception was exceptionally friendly and as I am a blue badge holder they supplied on site parking. The room was comfortable and clean with all we needed for an overnight stay. We went out for a meal and on our return there was free coffee/tea in the reception area. Breakfast was much better than expected with plenty for everybody.
This hotel is well-placed for access to all routes to North and South Cotswolds, An excellent breakfast buffet, and good value dining rates. First class staff - polite and courteous - who dealt competently with our complaint with Expedia.
