Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Albert2407 Thriller at the County Ground
I wanted a no frills hotel close enough to the County Ground to walk there. I chose HIE as this fitted the bill and is a little more than basic.
On arrival i arranged parking at the Railway Station and having found the Station car park discovered it was Pay and Display and i didn't have a ticket. Something of a faff to sort it out but we got there in the end, Though i was accused of losing the parking ticket which i thought was a bit much, as i am sure i was never given it in the first place.
Room was perfectly ok, warm, light and quiet with a comfortable bed.
Bathroom however only had warm water not Hot water, the shower head would only point at the wall and the toilet would not flush properly.
Public areas were to a good standard, i didn't eat at the hotel but take a drink at the bar which did not charge silly prices as most hotels do.
WiFi was not available, therefore my ING card holder privileges were null and void.
I regret not giving this feedback to the staff at the time, however i was tight for time and down at heart having lost the football match.
This experience will not stop me using HIE again, though i would appreciate more attention to detail as i could have paid less for a slightly lower grade hotel and they may just have provided hot water.
Happy to discuss further if required

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by nearly done Good value for money
Fairly new Hotel which means the decor was clean and tidy. Staff were very helpful and cheerful. Breakfast was included in price and was ample. Hotel did not have a car park but we were told to park at the railway car park which was only a few minutes walk away and cost £6 for 24 hours. All in all everything was good value for money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by noreen67 Excellent choice overall
There was nothing I could fault about my stay here,if anything it exceeded my expectations in every way.The outstanding factor in this hotel is the quality of it's staff. i felt safe,spoilt and very very content. Every staff member I encountered did everything they could to ensure my stay was memorable.
In particular Robert and his team made a big impression and were fantastic in every way.
I look forward to going there to stay very soon.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by schurlibur Kleines Zimmer und mangelhaftes Frühstück
Leider hat die Klimaanlage/Heizung nicht richtig funktioniert, ebenso wie die Toilettenspülung. Sehr weiche Betten und harte Kopfkissen. Das Frühstück ist nach mehrmaliger Kritik nicht besser geworden.
Die Lage des Hotels ist sehr zentral. Ein gebührenpflichtiger Parkplatz ist in 3 Gehminuten zu erreichen.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eggample Brilliant location, awesome staff
Swindon itself may not be great, but this Holiday Inn Express is. The staff are really friendly and helpful; the bar has a good choice of beers and the hotel is amazingly priced.
