Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John247 Comfortable bed clean , and very very good staff
We found that the hotel was excellent in many ways. On arrival the staff couldn't do enough for us , and the girl Krishma left our room spotless every day.
The manager on the desk always went out of his way to make sure everything was as we wanted it.
Consequently we had an excellent time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by slush1960 Arrival
On arrival at 20.00 hrs at the main entrance there were some 8-10 people, including one member of staff, stood in front of the door smoking. They moved aside to allow entrance and it was not a major problem but it did colour the initial impression of the hotel.
Perhaps a smoking area to one side of the entrance might be the answer

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MJJ1000 Good location
Good location and plenty of parking. Friendly check in staff. Good rooms and ideal for an overnight stay. Driving back to the far south-west from Norfolk it provided an ideal stopover.
Poor experience in the restaurant would probably mean I would eat elsewhere in future.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Speedy_Simon Not the best nights stay I've ever had.....................but......
Booked late to stay here as needed a quick bed down for the night between London and South Wales.
Check in was usual, greeted in the normal manner, and I was a little surprised to be greeted by the same lady less than seven hours later...........
This hotel has a gym facility on site. I'd suggest you ask for a room away from the health club as patrons were not very quiet leaving nor arriving at 06.30 the following morning.
The receptionist did apologise for the noise but even I knew there was little she could do about it.

This is the second time we have stayed there. Staff are very helpful and friendly.
However the hotel rooms and bathrooms could do with renovation. The rooms are quite small and dated.
The garden area weather permitting is really nice.
It is definitely the staff that make this hotel.

Hotel in pleasant surroundings. Close to motorway but a bit far out of town. Nice little leisure centre (gym, pool, whirlpool). Bar drinks a bit pricey.

Nice high quality hotel with a great walking area by a lake in picturesque setting. The hotel is well staffed and has a great bar at the center of activities. The outdoor patio with the excellent food and beverage choices was a hit for our group of engineers. Some of our guys used the sauna, pool, and workout room and rated it highly. The cleaning staff always ensured that the bathrooms were clean, beds made, and coffee, soaps, and towels were restocked. A nice hotel with really darkened rooms when you want to sleep in. Good heat and airconditioning. All in all a great place to stay

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Davia Nice Place
This is a nice place to stay. I liked everything about the Holiday Inn Swindon especially being able to sit and relax in the courtyard in the evenings. The water pressure in our shower was almost non-existent. I don't know if this was just our room or if it is throughout the hotel. If the water pressure had been normal, I would have given this hotel 5 stars.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Daz W Not a bad stay
Stay was fine, check in was good and staff were friendly. The duty manager was very accommodating. rooms were fine for me as a business traveller.
Breakfast was a bit of a disaster with the staff having a domestic and the food looking a bit old, but apart form that I recommend the hotel.

Although hotel is not great, staff are brilliant. They are better than many 5* hotels in swindon. I just loved their genuine care and attention to detail.

Thanks for a great overnight stay at your hotel recently. We found the room and communal areas to be very clean, and enjoyed using the swimming pool. We appreciated the welcoming, helpful service from all staff throughout our stay. I am especially grateful to the restaurant staff at dinner and breakfast who signposted me to the gluten free options on the menu. Good children's menu too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sueh40 Great pool
2nd time we've stayed at hotel and had a good experience both times. Room clean and big bonus for us is the great pool.
Service at the restaurant for evening meal was bit hit and miss. Staff weren't that organised and either were really slow or wouldn't leave us alone! Food ok and would eat there again but be sure to check your food bill as ours was wrong both evenings we ate there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Staff so helpful
We had a family celebration and decided to stay here, and have a room available to us during the day, with buffet for 25, and an evening dinner for all of us.The staff who arranged our booking were very helpful in making the arrangements. On the weekend itself we found everyone in all departments put themselves out to make sure we had everything we wanted. The food was of a higher standard than we'd expected, and the facilities such as the leisure club were excellent. But what really stood out for us was the attitude of all the staff who were really genuinely welcoming and helpful.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LACM50 Restaurant service good but spa service poor
I've stayed at this hotel on several occasions for work. The restaurant staff always seem friendly and efficient. The spa staff though, don't offer the same level of attention or customer care. I arrived late and the room service phone took a long time to get answered and the food took about 40 minutes to arrive. It was a bank holiday and I had driven for nearly three hours to be close to my office for an early meeting the next morning. It just felt like the hotel wasn't firing on all cylinders because of the holiday.

Can't understand why WiFi isn't free it doesn't cost anymore for every customer to use. and the charge is very costly if you pay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by fjs123 Is this a smokers hotel
Corridor and room smelled of cigarette smoke, no offer to change to another area of the hotel - No lift to floors above the ground floor - Would not recommend this hotel unless you are a fit smoker.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tespmi Desperate need of help
This was the 4th Holiday Inn Group hotel in a two week business trip and was by far the poorest. Although the staff were friendly and the wifi was available and free to us as Gold Elite members the hotel itself is in need of updating. To be more precise - carpets in the corridors are marked, well trodden and generally uninspiring, our room felt as though it was built in the fifties occasionally decorated and unloved - for example there were round pin plug outlets in the wall, too few 13 amp outlet sockets which meant we had power cables trailing around the room as we recharged our various business devices. We were travelling with a large amount of luggage which meant the lack of lift to the second floor certainly inconvenienced us (we discussed this with reception who looked for alternative rooms but advised that those on the group floor were smaller and would have created a different problem). The bar area was uncomfortable and not welcoming
