Probably the most inconvenient hotel I have ever stayed in my life. The car park is a long walk away and you need to phone them to get directions to the car park and then you need to call up and register to pay for the parking....what a hassle before… See more
Probably the most inconvenient hotel I have ever stayed in my life. The car park is a long walk away and you need to phone them to get directions to the car park and then you need to call up and register to pay for the parking....what a hassle before you even get to the hotel. You need to go in a lift to even get to the lobby to check in and the breakfast area is small, jam packed and roasting hot I was sweating trying to get a bowl of corn flakes! Also no aircon. Collapse

We stayed here en route from Plymouth to Cambridge to break the journey up. Car parking not on site so not ideal, check in was easy. Room so hot air con not working!! Fan in room blew around warm air! Family room with 2nd bed made room tiny. Breakfast in the morning was good, fair choice & plenty of it. Collapse

Recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Swindon. Bode the manager and John on reception were extremely helpful, and funny instantly felt at ease made me feel they were approachable. Room was a decent size, towels huge and soft. Bedding very clean as was the room. Cleaning service everday. Breakfast was fine hot food stayed hot but as a vegetarian hot selection was for me limited, it consisted of beans and toast. If that's a negative it's my only one. They had cereals, pastries etc (which I don't eat either lol). I would certainly return to this hotel in a heartbeat. Centrally located to the train station and excellent shopping centre. Plenty of places to eat around the hotel. Collapse

I've stayed in this hotel several times before but it has really gone down hill in terms of the decor, general maintenance and cleanliness. The room was generally grubby, the sofa and cushions had unpleasant stains on them. There were dark hairs on the mattress protector. There were sweets, left over on a shelf from the last resident so unsure if the room was cleaned properly. The pillows smelled old and unpleasant. I would imagine that this hotel caters mostly for business customers and as such should have a reasonable iron and ironing board. There is one ironing board on the top floor and it was in such bad shape that I had to hold it up and iron with the other hand. Hopeless. For a room that cost nearly £150 this was unacceptable. On a positive note, I found all the staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good with lots of choice. Collapse
Value for money, small but clean room

Stayed at this hotel for one night which is in Swindon City Centre, the town does leave much to be desired so wouldn’t want to venture out at night, viewing the town in daylight is bad enough but much the same could be said for most English towns & cities these days. Whilst the entrance to this hotel is a little unconventional as reception is on the first floor and the lifts where you enter don’t seem particularly secure we found the staff at reception to be helpful and accommodating. When we had a problem at check in it was satisfactorily quickly resolved by Ulrich without fuss so kudos to him for that. Sarah on reception was also very pleasant. The room was small but spotlessly clean as was the bathroom although on the small side as well and both shower gel dispensers were empty which was not apparent until you had got in the shower but that was a minor inconvenience. We can understand some of the comments about security at this hotel but you do need your room key to work the lifts to the room floors from reception and we didn’t feel particularly unsafe. Breakfast was included and we had no complaints about the breakfast at all, it was slightly above the usual Holiday Inn Express fare, hot items such as eggs, bacon, sausages, beans were available as well as cereal, fruit, muffins, pastries, toast, orange juice, tea and coffee from a machine and everything we sampled was fresh. They even provided brown paper bags if you wanted to eat on the go which was a nice touch. The china and cutlery was very clean and the staff on duty accommodating. The breakfast room was bright and clean. Bedlinen was clean and bed comfortable. Our room was on a higher floor on the same side as the entrance but there was what appeared to be a bottle bank in the immediate vicinity so it was pretty noisy from early in the morning. This is clearly a budget hotel but for the price paid we had a clean and adequate room albeit quite small but perfectly acceptable and the breakfast included was good value. Parking is a problem, the hotel site does say parking is available at an additional £6 but fails to mention until you arrive that there is no parking on site (at least it was not mentioned on the Holiday Inn website at the time we booked). There is just a small car space at the entrance restricted to unloading bags only. The parking available mentioned on the website is actually across the road at the railway station car park and judging by some of the sketchy characters milling about we would be reluctant to leave our car there and wouldn’t recommend anyone to do so. The staff who dealt with us during our stay, Ulrich, Sarah (think that was her name) and John were really helpful and seem to obviously strive to give good customer service so that was another plus. A special shout out to John who was particularly helpful especially when having arrived home we realised we had not been given a copy of the bill upon departure and having rang John he emailed it almost immediately and was so nice to deal with. This was basic clean accommodation for a reasonably decent price. Collapse
