Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Galton6 Website doesn't give enough detail
Good clean room but disappointed there was only a shower and no bath and no room service or vending. These weren't clear from the website. Also, it was a very cold night so I needed the heater on which was right next to the bed and rather noisy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robert1010 Best HI Express so far
There was something about the team that ran this hotel that made it feel better than the other Holiday Inn Express locations that I have visited. The formula was the same, but they managed just a bit better than most hotels do with the same structure / food / rooms.
When you think you know what to expect, someone always manages to surprise you :) in a nice way.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ricardo8 Noisy Room
I have stayed at this hotel before and at many more Holiday Inn Expresses around the world. This is the first time I have not given an excellent review.
On the positive side the room was clean, the breakfast good and the toilet / shower excellent.
However, there was a constant noise all night. It was very low but noticeable. It would run for a few minutes then stop for a couple and then start again. It was NOT from within my room. As it went on and off ALL night and I did not get any sleep. I reported it to Reception in the morning and she said it might have been the heating in the next room.
I am not sure if I shall stay at this Hotel again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ledermann excellent all round value and quality
An enjoyable experience overall...with the exception of very poor variety and quality of cooked breakfast items over three days..ie. baked beans, hard scrabbled eggs and re heated uninviting sausages.
otherwise the cold buffet was good....
need greater effort and presentation of the cooked food items..
heated croissants over an hour or two become hard and dry...
well informed staff..appreciated the receptionist who recommended a visit to Cirencester.
Disappointed to find that by 2.30pm on the saturday that our room had not been cleaned and a stern comment made that the cleaner had 20 rooms to clean blah blah....great customer service from housekeeping. not....
would recommend the place again..but we felt some complainecy from kitchen and housekeeping staff had started to creep in...

The rooms are pleasant and warm, with comfortable beds and very good showers. The breakfast is good and plentiful. The location is excellent for the M4 and trips to Marlborough.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RobT68 Brilliant as Always
We have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on a few occasions and have always come away satisfied. The only downside the last time was that our allocated room wasn't ready for occupation due to a lack of housekeeping over the festive period.
The staff, as always, were very friendly and welcoming; ready to sort any request in a timely manner.
Staying again this Friday and looking forward to it.

We decided to book a night here whilst visiting family at Christmas. Great location and very friendly staff. We have stayed here before so knew what to expect. It was nice to turn up late in the evening knowing that the room would be clean and tidy, and we could enjoy a good night's rest.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bokke77 Overall good but they missed a few things...
Room was ok but what let it down was the 1/2 eaten takeaway of chicken and rice which was obviously left by the previous room tenant and was not seen by the cleaning staff - it was between the sofa and the wall so not entirely obvious. Other than that it was good value but I may think twice before booking again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by uKnow First time stay
Favourably impressed. Very good self service breakfast choice. Our only minus point was that our room wasn't serviced (no clean cups etc.) but then again it was Christmas day and the cleaning staff almost certainly deserved a day off. Would stay again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lovejoy61 overnight stay
we chose to stay here due to meeting up with family the following day, this was due to the distance we were travelling, the bed was a little to firm and the kitchen were closed for Christmas but the manager was very helpful with helping us order food, the breakfast was lovely and well set out

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by conwe Average hotel with convenient moterway location
Good for motorway users and visitors to Swindon with a car. Average room and HIX standard. The two areas need to be improved:
1>, Internet connections. My voucher ran out within 8 hours instead of full day. Has to go to front desk ask for a new voucher.
2>, The scrambled eggs in breakfast is too hard and not very good taste. And we were the first one down to breakfast so it was not being there for too long before we ate. Maybe the hotel con improve on this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Penny64 Comfortable bed, excellent service
We have stayed in Holiday Inn Hotels on two previous occasions and our experiences were not happy ones. One was in Newcastle UK and the other in New York, on both occasions we found the hotels to be run down and dirty., certainly not meeting 4* standards of accommodation. Therefore for ten years we have avoided staying at any Holiday Inn establishment. However the night we spent at the Holiday Inn Express, Swindon was enough to change our minds. I know it is a new building but it was spotless, the bed really comfortable and the breakfast perfectly adequate with hot and cold choices. The staff were friendly and efficient and we would definitely use this hotel again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JMM13 Great place but don't stay here if you want a hot shower
Stayed here with 6 friends and for the price the facilities, the staff and the general cleanliness of the hotel were fantastic - even the free breakfast was good. However, there can be NO forgiving the fact that there was NO HOT WATER the following morning. I thought it might be just our room but 3 out of 3 other rooms had no hot water either. It doesn't matter how comfortable the beds were, that there was free wifi or that the staff were very helpful - nothing would make me stay in a hotel again that can't provide the basic need for a hot shower!! Shocking!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AverageArcher Swindon M4 Holiday Inn Express
Excellent as always, the M4 Swindon Holiday Inn Express is a wonderful hotel that offers everything you need and at a price that doesn't stress the pocket. Set just off the M4 Junction 16 it is a great base for business or pleasure in Swindon, Chippenham and Bath. There are other options for staying in Swindon, but none offer the value and comfort that this hotel does.

We stopped at the above hotel on Saturday . Could not fault the room, service and cleanliness. My only complaint was the cleaner knocked on the door at 8.55am and then again at 11.00am. Felt like we had to leave even though checking out time was 12.00

As a fairly regular of Swindon West J16, I have enjoyed each of our visits due to the general comfort and, particularly, the attitude of
all Staff who go the extra mile for your comfort.
The new Tvs now add to the pleasure.
BUT - the ambient light in the bedooms make it difficult to read
newspapers - PLEASE PROVIDE A BRIGHT READING LAMP.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by anne26 Staff extremely helpful
We stayed at Swindon to enable us to visit Bath approximately 29 miles away. The room and beds were excellent and the staff were very helpful in directing us to the nearby retail park where we wanted an evening meal. I would have no hesitation in visiting this holiday inn express again in the future.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by tiredvisitor Service
When we booked this hotel we were assured that we would be able to have an extra duvet so one of our sons could sleep on a blow up mat that we would take as sleeping a 14 and 12 year old in put u up bed doesn't work.
When we asked the receptionist for this she was more interested in talking to other members of staff and we could not keep her attention. Eventually she said she would bring this to us within 30 minutes.
We thanked her and asked if this could be as soon as possible as we were tired.
By 9.30 no duvet had arrived and we decided we would manage and all went to bed.
At 10.30 we had a knock on our door and the door opened before we had chance to get to it. It was the receptionist 2 hours later with the duvet. I was not impressed at the time it had taken or she just knocked once and walked in. Response "oh well" was going to raise this before we left on the Saturday but there was no staff on reception and when you asked in the restaurant to speak to someone they didn't know where anyone was.
Poor is a compliment to staff helpfulness and attitude - rubbish would be more appropriate.
Did this spoil our stay "Yes" we all then struggled to get back to sleep

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by carlos11 good hotel. poor pclub offers
i am a platinum member and stay in this hotel a lot. i am disappointed that the platinum members have been offered free wifi, but in this hotel, EVERY guest gets free wifi. i do not see any benefit to the platinum members when they recieve the same goods for free as everyone else. i would like to think this owuld be addressed as the high speed internet for platinum members would be advantageous. now everyone has free wifi, the connection i used to get is now still free but slower due to the excessive usage.
everything else in this hotel is top class though and i would recommend it
