Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mich3571 Great service and breakfast
Overall our stay was great, but unfortunately the family in the room next door did not have any consideration for other guests. Kids squawking and screaming in the night and really early and when they went for breakfast the kids were running and screeching in the corridor. Great hotel and really convenient for railway station.

Not a full English breakfast no mention of breakfast choices when I booked, I do expect a full English choice at an English hotel

Booked this hotel as part of a Points Break promotion as an IHG member. Very impressed overall, including attentiveness of staff and reasonable price of food in the restaurant. Would stay again if in the area - great for shopping a Designer Outlet.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TimFr Great Service and room, Noisy location
Located next to a late night bar with an external area and outside bar. Very Noisy. I was in an even numbered room, apparently the odd numbered rooms on the reverse side of the hotel are much quieter. Too late for me to know that now. I wasn't charged in the end and that was offered to me without me suggesting it. Great customer service to be fair. Good rate and breakfast is great as it's free.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GJK75 Great stay at a great hotel
Staff and room were wonderful.
Only minor point is that I could not eat in the hotel on a Friday at 9pm. Melody did offer alternatives though, providing take-away menus and recommending local restaurants.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pennyp100 Best for one night stay only
the room has NO STORAGE SPACE , not a wardrobe or drawers just a small open unit . So for a longer stay with luggage its very cramped and uncomfortable .
A good central loaction, and breakfast and free wifi. are its only plus points.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by calz Broken Lift
Upon arrival we checked in and got in the lift to go up to our rooms. The lift made a few clunking noises then it stopped. We kept pressing the start button but nothing happened, we tried to pull the doors open and a brick wall in front of us. We pressed the emergency button but no one answered. We kept pressing the emergency button for a very long time and no answer. As the lift was full it was getting hot and I was starting to panic, more due to the fact no one was responding. When we finally got a call back the guy was quite abrupt saying "we got your call so be patient as we will be with you shortly"......it took them 35 minutes which is apaulling and how we didn't pass out I do not know. The fact that we wasn't kept informed with what was happening was making me panic more. I cannot believe this service from an IHG brand, I expected better service than this. It took me most of the day to compose myself and think I will be walking the stairs from now on. The team there should have stayed in contact with us and answered our calls from the first one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bunny29 Great hotel, centrally located, friendly staff.
We arrived early and were able to access our room earlier than anticipated which was lovely as it gave us more of the afternoon.
I was going to say the front of house staff, but it should be ALL staff are friendly, courteous and efficient. Nothing was too much hassle for them. Booking in and out was easy.
Room was clean and tidy and very comfortable and was more than adequate for our stay at the hotel.
Breakfast has a vast variety of food catering for all needs and tastes and was hot and delicious.
Would recommend to anyone needing somewhere to stay in Swindon.

Staff are very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean.
As someone who likes a cooked breakfast would of liked more choice than just sausage, beans and scambled egg.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rat57 Best Hotel Experience Ever
This hotel has the best most caring staff I have ever seen at any hotel I have ever stayed. Robert and his entire staff went out of their way to help me through a difficult time when I had to return to the U.S. Unexpectedly. Thank you Robert and to everyone on your staff. This was my third stay at this hotel in the last few years and I have always had great service and a great experience. Nice people who go out of their way to make your travels easier.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jfmicklewright staff welcoming but beware the car park
The staff are genuinely helpful - I phoned at 11 as a meeting had been cancelled and they made sure a room was available for 1.00 so I could work. Good service.
The bad bit is they don't have their own monitored car park and mine was one of three cars broken into overnight - so beware if you park overnight!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rachel5566 Great hotel, great bed, great price, big breakfast buffet!
Stayed here on a night out and it was perfect place to crash afterwards - great room with everything we needed. Friendly staff. Car park less than a minutes walk - once we found it! Great breakfast buffet, even take away coffee cups for an extra top up after filling up! Directions to the hotel could do with updating. Would definitely stay again :-)

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Swindontraveler over-advertised hotel
According to what it says on website and advertising websites, I couldn't wait until my stay started. However as soon as I started my stay I was really disappointed. The room, although advertised for 4 people is very small just enough for one person. Breakfast is basically a continental breakfast with some cold scrambled eggs and low quality baked beans. Other than this nothing, nada. Staff is completely unaware who is staying where. My stay was divided into three booking one after the other. Every time after my first booking finished, staff come to my room and asked me to check out, then I tell them I have another booking. Then they do not do my room until I ask for my room to be made. All in all, I am not happy at all with this booking.

Would not stay here again, Twin rooms, small, the heater was off, so very cold, and when you just want to relax, you have to change rooms, Double room was nice,

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sarah1972 Great Service and lovely accomadation
The staff were friendly, polite, informative, professional both at check in and the following day. Room was clean and tidy and even through there were signs of Swindon nightlife outside none of it intruded into the hotel.. i.e no revellers, no noise, etc.
I was very impressed by the whole experience.
That was my fourth visit in 5 months and every time has been a pleasure.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gowdru11 Initial Welcome and Check-out Approach
Receptionists at front desk were not polite/not welcoming at the first instance during check-in and check-out. Following seeing the membership, the body language changed which I believe should not be the case rather a positive attitude and body language would help. All other service was good however if possible I will try and avoid this Hotel in near future but I recognise it could be a local issue.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Train355 Staff was helpful
The staff helped my party find a place to eat.
The WiFi password did not work. I had to go to the front desk and get the hotel generic password. Afterwards, I was able to work from the hotel.
Overall the hotel was comfortable and clean. However, I was expecting a more comfortable bed.
