Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ChristophP Staff are excellent
I've being staying here on a regular basis for most of 2014. The staff are excellent and do their best to meet my particular needs - I am a light sleeper.
The food is good, the 8oz Sirloin is my regular choice. I am always greeted by name and generally not been disappointed.
The gym and pool are out dated and match the general state of the property.

A dated hotel in need of a refurb. Bedroom and bathroom clean and tidy but dated. Check in staff lovely. Breakfast staff excellent.
Evening staff in restaurant very poor totally disinterested in customers. More keen on chatting to each other.

We had a great stay at the Hotel, there was an issue with room service, but the duty staff at reception sorted that out very quickly.
I will say its not the hotel that makes a stay great its the GREAT STAFF that works there that helps make the stay a great experiance.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 42 deed The staff are very frendly
The best asset this hotel has are it's staff , they can't do enough for you.
overall the hotel does give value for money.
I think the hotel is in need of a make over. I have not stayed in a hotel in the UK with single glazed windows for a long time.
The showers in the swimming pool were cold, and talking to people it seems the norm.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by freddy2 Convenient but stuffy room and hard bed, no sleep
Convenient location in Swindon next to the M4; asked for a room away from motorway noise.
room was stuffy with a/c not switched on.
All quiet in the night; but hard matteress and pillows made sleeping uncomfortable.
Swimming pool, jaccuzzi and sauna were used and were clean and relaxing.
breakfast was average quality but hot and plenty.
overall was average value for money.... nothing that cant be forgotten!

Lovely friendsly staff, I had a very good meal in the resturaunt during my stay. The swiming pool is a lovely size with a hot tub and sauna. Great way to relax after work. The rooms are clean but need updating and I would say they look more like a holiday inn express. Overall I would stay again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cogart Pre-Cruise overnight stop
An excellent location to break the journey from the North-West when departing on a cruise from Southampton. Not the obvious route via the M40 and Oxford. Try the M5 and on to Swindon. Good location for a stay and ticks all the boxes. Pub across the road for those who want it. Hotel staff very friendly. Breakfast good. Will use again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kalu overall stay
Reception staff are very friendly and even offered help to take the things to the room. we wanted to change the room and they were very helpful to resolve the things and very quickly did the needful. Thanks to them.
Restaurant serving staff are working very hard but very pleasant and they attend every need of the customer. Thanks to them.
Only problem was very limited menu and even that some things are not available to order.

Friendly staff in every department is the biggest plus of this hotel.
Some rooms are better than others but that doesn't make this hotel better or worse than the competitors.
I keep coming back for more.

Would highly recommend this hotel, we had a lovely swim before dinner in the very nice pool. Dinner was scummy, lots of choice. But most of all the staff were exceptional......and I'd like to say a special thank you to Simon at the front desk....who is an absolute credit to Holiday Inn! Thank you for a fabulous stay!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Vanda59 Great Service - Poor Food Quality - No Atmosphere
Clean environment generally with an overall good spacious impression. The staff made the stay and were ALL quite lively, friendly, really nice and attentive but the hotel appeared to lack atmosphere in general.The evening meal food was not great and neither was the menu choice and cost. Breakfast was fairly good for choices though. The room was clean, although the bathroom lacked complimentary bathroom products and it was also very small, water pressure was good on shower and bath which is always a bonus. The tv had poor reception, and there were inadequate amount of sockets for bedside appliances. Ordered a morning call which we didn't get which was a shame and could have caused us a problem. This was probably just an oversight and didn't affect our stay but it would have been helpfull to have those power points beside the bed in order to plug our own appliances in which could have given us clock time and morning alarm.
An adequate hotel stay... had better but certainly had worse. We'd rate this hotel stay as average and not as we would have expected from IHG

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Boodles123 Disappointing Experience Overall
I would normally stay at the HI Express when in Swindon but on two recent occasions in September 2014 I choose to stay at this HI. Both stays were disappointing.
- there was little or no recognition of IHG membership as would be experience at other HI locations
- Food in the restaurant was average at best (first stay the pasta was undercooked though the second stay I had a decent burger)
- response to a complaint about the quality of the room was met with no level of service at first until I suggested I would have to leave feedback on the website at which point the response from staff rapidly changed
- service experienced at the bar on both occasions was lacking and inattentive. Guests were observed left waiting with no bar staff present and other service staff meandering around.
Staff are friendly and pleasant, but just lack attention to guests. I stay at a lot of IHG and only expect a fairly basic level of comfort, cleanliness and service. On both occasions this hotel fell short of even the basics. I believe I will stick with the Express brand in Swindon for future stays in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mrs Tich A pleasant overnight stay
This was an excellent overnight stay. Ground floor room with 2 good sized comfortable single beds.Both bedroom and bathroom were spotlessly clean and well presented. The staff were welcoming and helpful throughout..It was a quiet stay.
Breakfast was a disappointment in that the self service hot food had been out for a long time and the fried eggs and bacon etc were hard and dry. The other breakfast food and tea/coffee were fine.
