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.
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.
My family and I stayed in the Barrington arms and as there were four of us stayed in the Barrington Suite. The room was absolutely beautiful with a spacious bathroom adjoined. The family who run the hotel could not have been more friendly or welcoming and the breakfast the following morning was delicious ( and very entertaining thanks to the singing chef!). We will definitely return to the Barrington in the future.
An enjoyable two night stay in this "urban resort" hotel. Facilities are great although some of the carpets in communal areas were starting to look a bit grubby. Reception staff were friendly and helpful and the service was really excellent. We were offered an upgrade to a suite for the first night and then went back to standard for our second night. The previous weekend we'd spent one night in an upper deck room and it's that experience of staying in three grades of room that prompts me to make a comment about the bathrooms. The size of bath in each of the three grades of rooms is identical with a shower over the bathtub. We'd have liked to have the luxury of being able to share a bath or even a shower but in each grade of room space was tight. The higher grade rooms are certainly bigger and have a few touches of luxury but the extra space could have enhanced the rather cramped bathrooms rather than the living areas. The rooms we stayed in were spacious, the beds comfy, the decor smart and the suite room had a lovely balcony. Staff kindly moved our luggage to the standard room for our second night. The restaurant, pub and coffee shop staff all provided a memorably polite and efficient service and all seemed happy to be there. Food was both tasty and well presented. Staff at breakfast and checkout on our final morning were really stretched with a number of large parties but were able to deal effectively with all that was thrown at them. Pity about the bathrooms.
I stayed for one night and the atmosphere in and around the hotel was very relaxing. The staff were also friendly and very helpful - for example I ordered food but had to go out for an hour and the front desk were more than willing to accept the order on my behalf and hold it until my return. This made my evening of work less stressful and I appreciate the extra effort. I will be working in the area a few more time in the next 6 months and will definitely book again.
To be quite honest I was extremely impressed and completely wowed by my stay. I loved the size of the room. I loved the fact that it had an en-suite. It was extremely cosy and warm. I ride a.motorbike and I got caught in the rain and when I got in my room I was able to hand up my stuff and it dried real quick as there were so many radiators that actually worked. It was very quiet and pleasant abs the bar staff and other staff were amazing
The only.issue is that it was a little confusing.entering the car park where to.go.to check.in as you literally walk into a pub. It would.of been nice to.see a welcome.sign and perhaps a direction of where to check in as there were.so many doors. However this is possibly me.being fussy as I loved the place!.
