Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dawn_123 Great location and a comfortable bed!
The hotel is in a great location being only a short walk from the town centre. All members of staff were present and friendly and would do all they could to help. My room was clean, had everything I needed including a hair dryer, a tv and the luxury of a sofa! The choices on the evening meal was good and the free breakfast was amazing! There was one night where I could hear some noises coming from a near side bar but nothing too bad. The highlight for me was the free wifi! Would defiantly stay here again! :)

I had a very relaxed stay in the Holday Inn at Swindon town centre, the manager on the afternoon shift had time to stop and chat, we had some good conversations, reception/bar staff, the two young ladies I met also had time for chats and when I needed directions where very helpful, any question I had they always had time for, and an answer. The staff I met where always happy, polite and out going. The hotel was clean at all times, despite how busy it was. The location was good, I was able to go for walks at night, there was a local park a short walk away, one of the best situated I have stayed in, three of the most friendly staff, who always spoke to great myself with a sense of humour too. A credit the hotel, just wish I could remember there names.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Family of 4 from Norway Very helpful and serviceminded staff
We got a room with a broken bedsofa. Instead of moving the whole family of 4 to another room, the hotel provided an additional room without extra cost.
For beeing situated in the centre of the town, the rooms are quite and you get a good nights sleep.
Excellent value for money.

I stay at H. I. Express swindon very often. I choose this hotel because I always receive excellent service from the staff, especially Miroslav, and the hotel facilities and ambiance are great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dec76 Central location and good service
Stayed while attending the air tattoo in Fairford. Hotel was less than 5 min walk from Swindon Bus Station for the shuttle bus to Fairford. Hotel doesn't have on-site parking but guests use the train station car park which is a 2 min walk from the hotel. Hotel will provide validated parking but requires notice to be placed in the car informing parking wardens that parking fee is paid by hotel. As we were staying for 4 days this meant going back to the car each day to change the notice.
Breakfast choices could be better. Toaster wasn't working correctly and there were only 3 hot food items to choose from.
Staff were friendly and polite. Room was acceptable for our needs but a little on the small side.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Adams24 Room was clean and the staff was excellent
Overall good experience. The bed was a little hard and room was small. I generally use the stairs and they were very diffucult to get around. I did not use the bar or the dining area but looked very clean and busy.

Hotel was completely full for my weekend on business with staff so did not get the rooms requested. Breakfast was basic. Noise from outside clubs and bars made it difficult to sleep. Did not meet expections.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pilot Talk Great Staff - tough area
My recent stay was nice with the exception of the Thursday night party district that the hotel is near. Throughout the evening, the shouts of the local bar hopping students could be heard all the way up to my fourth floor window. The air conditioning was inadequate and the room very humid and warm making it difficult to sleep. Otherwise, very friendly staff, great internet and breakfast.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by fish10 a little bit concerned of use of hotel by Social Sevices
The front desk staff were very friendly.
The barman was pretty grumpy so only stayed for one drink. The breakfast selection was very poor. unless you like sausages scrambled egg and beans every day.
the arrest as already spoken about rather left a bad taste. and was informed by the night Manager he hoped we enjoyed the entertainment.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by gaz2258 Staff helpful/security missing
Staff was helpful when we said about the mattress and the lobby staff delt with it as soon as we left.
Security is a issue because we sat for a drink at night in the bar and noticed people that were not booked into the hotel drinking which we found very bad as if they got up to the lobby they could have got into any of the rooms.
The breakfast was very limited

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by C and B Ideally situated for shopping and station
During our 5 night stay we were greeted with a smile whenever we met a member of staff. Enquiries were dealt with sympathetically. The Hotel generated a feeling of well-being. The variety of places to eat and shop were within easy walking distance. Cars may be parked at the nearby railway station car park and although there is a charge it is discounted and reasonable. Our car remained in the car park 24/7 for 5 days. We are already planning a return visit to the Holiday Inn at Swindon Central and will use it as a base to explore the easily accessible surrounding countryside.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by trappist Thursday and Weekends
This hotel is a very short walk from Swindon railway station, and it would have been a very pleasant and convenient place to stay had it not been for the pub in the next street. I stayed on a Thursday night. It appears that the pub has a late license for Thursday nights and weekends, which allows them to stay open till 3.00am. The local population seems to take full advantage of this facility, and make A LOT of noise (about 85dB, and more when the drummer was doing a solo.)
To be fair, the noise died down pretty quickly after 3.00am, but if you plan on going to sleep at a more usual hour, avoid the back end of the week.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Certain Staff Make This Hotel
Working away from home Monday to Friday can be a fairly lonely experience but staff like Miroslav, Melody, Robert and Nikoleta make my regular stays bearable. Room maintenance isn't always the best but the the staff (in particular those mentioned above) always go out of their way to help out. There are better hotels in Swindon but the staff really make a difference and keep me coming back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gomm Great Experience
Checked in Monday 12th May was greeted by Bethany and Melody on reception, very professional and explained the layout of the hotel, gave me the dinner and breakfast times and showed me where the latte machine's were. I desperately needed a hair cut and they recommended Celly's which was a 5 minute walk from the hotel. They were also able to recommended places to go and the fantastic shopping that is on offer in Swindon. They were absolutely fantastic and provided a wealth of knowledge and nothing was too much trouble.
There is something for everyone on the dinner menu and their chef is only too happy to add to anything you order.
Also met with Miraslav ( I hope I've spelt his name correctly ) he is the night manager and is definitely this hotel's biggest asset. He has the patience of a saint and is willing to go the extra mile.
I had a brilliant stay and was made to feel at home would recommended this hotel to anyone visiting Swindon.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by English Riviera Princess DISAPPOINTING
Unfortunately, this stay was extremely disappointing. Normally stay at another chain but this was central. Wanted some food on arrival late afternoon and was told by reception staff "there is no food at weekends!" Later we saw families tucking into meals! We had room on the fourth floor, double aspect windows overlooking other buildings, pubs etc. Noise from pubs/club went on until well after 3am, couldn't open window due to this then other inconsiderate guests were shouting in the corridor at around 3.30am. Such a shame as have had good stays at Holiday Inns but not this one :-(

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dogsausage Friendly staff
I was late arriving and the climb up the scruffy stairs did not bode well.
However, the staff were great, the room was nice and the chef let me order a meal a little after the kitchen was due to close, as I had been delayed by trains.
A good sleep, but a limited choice for breakfast.
The stair well to reception is a big let down and needs brightening up.
