Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LovelyDoubley Excellent Overnight Stay
Found this hotel to be much better than we expected. The convenience of it also having an in house Resturant and Bar was a big bonus for us, as after our journey we did not really want to have to go out and search for somewhere to eat. Breakfast choices were adequate and good quality.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by alfa charlie perfection compromised by car park and breakfast
Very clean and comfortable room, excellent reception staff, but best to arrive early (car park very full by 6 pm). Breakfast adequate but less choice than the competition.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by west ham 1980 Breakfast/noise
I liked the idea of variety of breakfast dishes but found the cooked breakfast very limited as to what you can have.
The only noise we encountered was other guest in the hallways at night time who had no consideration for other guest that might have had children.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cookie45 Wonderful staff
We booked this hotel as it was en-route to Southampton where we were sailing from. After arriving late at night after a long drive, we just wanted a quick check in then straight to bed. We couldn't fault it, from the extremely helpful staff, quick check in, comfortable bed, great night sleep and a hearty breakfast to help our onward journey. Super work Holiday Inn!!!

Had a really nice stay here we were attending a family wedding nearby and this was the ideal place to stay. We had 3 nights here and couldn't have been happier only moan and it is picky was that the croissants were cold and really should be warm

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bazr Great value well placed hotel
Only a one night stay but good. Good service from staff and price including a breakfast sets you up for the day. On top floor, the room was quiet and had a good nights sleep. Would recommend and stay again.

After looking at other reviews,was not sure what to expect.Room was lovely and clean.I am a light sleeper,so was concerned about traffic noise,no problem whatsoever .Did have a room not facing the motorway,so that might have made a difference.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BarneyBS53 Comfortable Good Value Stay
First time in a Holiday Inn Express. Everything felt to a good high standard, from a relaxing drink in the bar on arrival, to the quality of the room and shower, to the breakfast in the morning. Great value for the 3 of us and felt it is somewhere where service does matter. For the money would struggle to beat to be honest ... especially at a half-term holiday weekend where prices where being doubled elsewhere. Overall a great first experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tulsatraveller Swindon stay
This was our third stay here and this was the best yet.
The Swindon Holiday Inn Express at M4's Junction 16 is a convenient place to stay to explore the surroundings - such as Avebury and the STEAM museum.
We're glad there's dining available in the hotel even with limited hours because with the area now built up, it's a pain to get anywhere even the Beefeater across the way.
The staff were more outstanding than the last time we stayed here. They're pretty much unflappable and are great with recommendations on places to visit.
The room is still plain old Holiday Inn Express so the customer knows what to expect. A good shower, a good bed. Breakfast is also the usual UK Holiday Inn Express, hot and cold items - no bacon.
We would not hesitate to stay here again when we're in the area.

Visited the holiday inn express for a few days at half-term
to see family near by. The breakfast had a good selection,
and was hot. The staff were polite and the cleaning staff
always willing to help[. The manager came over to us to
ask if everything was ok with our stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Stretch01 I would not recommend this option
For the cost of a night at this hotel, based on the awful breakfast (where do they get those revolting sausages), the location next to a busy highway (poor window insulation) and not too friendly staff I would recommend this hotel.
Furthermore the Guinness on tap is from a can. And other draught beers flat. The eating area was a mess each morning. The food was disgusting. And the staff not too friendly or willing to assist - I suspect they're over worked & underpaid.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Joang sw Where are the staff
We had a great welcome on arrival and room on 2nd floor really clean although I asked for ground floor it didn't matter as lift available
We stayed as a family so 2adults and two teens and yes the sofa bed was a double but single beds would have been better both my girls aged 13 are tall and prefer own space .,you may say book two rooms but price /budget was key
Is this possible for future consideration.?
Breakfast another story
No-one on reception to ask what to do as this was our first visit to a h/inn express
Eventually tracked down a waitress who seemed to be trying to juggle keeping the breakfast items topped up , refilling cutlery and plates and clearing tables poor girl she couldn't keep up
Really you needed someone on the food and someone clearing tables
We cleared our own table ,when we found one,!
On leaving I had to ask the same girl what to do with room key card as no one on reception again there wasn't a buzzer or anything to press to get assistance
We would visit again if these issues were attended too

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by toma109 Not too good
Not up to the standard of other holiday inns we have stopped at. One lift not working and the other one turned up when it felt like it. Food not very good in the evening or breakfast. Choice for breakfast was poor and did not look appetizing.

Excellent hotel at a very affordable price. The room was spotless as was the rest of the hotel. Comfy bed with additional pillows if required. Very friendly staff. Breakfast choice limited but all that was served was fresh and hot. Would definitely recommend this hotel and would visit again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hamster63 A comfortable break
Chosen due to a late check out time on a Sunday. Room had everything that was needed. Very comfy bed! Got a bit chilly but within a minute of a phone call to reception, a portable heater was delivered. Great attentive service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeN54 Good stay
This is the second time we have stayed here to break up a long journey and both times (a year apart) we have found this hotel to be an excellent stopping point. The rooms are clean & quiet and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The use of the hotels WiFi, and the complimentary breakfast only adds to an already pleasing experience.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Well done to all the staff at Swindon West.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tel The Smell Overal hotel was great in all departments.
Lovely welcome when we arrived. Manager was particular helpful. Nothing too much trouble.
Room was first class. On our way to breakfast next morning all the house keeping staff spoke to us.
Breakfast was great. Lots of choice and it never ran out of anything.
My only small issue was the un friendliness of the breakfast room staff.
I spoke to them , they in turn ignored me, as I said only a small issue but not a nice one.
Manager was on duty and she was her happy self from the night before.
Was close to motorway but you could NOT HEAR THE ROAD AT ALL.
Didn't ruin my stay and would stay again without hesitation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SOwen Just Excellent!!!
Stayed at this hotel over the easter weekend and didn't want to leave! From the moment we checked in we were greeted with such a warm and friendly atmosphere, the room along with the entire hotel was spotless and so comfortable.
When it came to breakfast I couldn't believe the variety of food that was available continental and hot food, it was constantly being topped up by very efficient staff and it was all delicious!!
My mum and I had an extremely enjoyable stay, we're now going to have to come up with some excuse to stay there again.

The hotel staff were very welcoming. As soon as we got there they gave two Easter eggs to our younger children. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was of good quality abd despite being very busy on Easter Sunday they kept the food and drinks topped up, with only a slight waiting period. I would recommend Holiday inn to everyone I know, much better than other hotels. Thank you very much to all the staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by johnnny2sheds nice hotel close to the M4
Despite its proximity to the M4 it is surprisingly quiet, nice staff, very clean and comfortable, unlike some Holiday Inn Express there is not a full restaurant facility available but there are so many eating places nearby it makes little difference and the Hotel will send out for a take away for you...great idea.
Go and stay its ok here
