My family and I were forced by circumstance to spend a week and a half at the Holiday Inn express Swindon.
Didn't expect much from what is a corporate business hotel but we enjoyed our stay
immensely, the rooms are as expected, clean, comfortable with all the basics in place, the breakfast provided was very good, I usually avoid buffet cooked breakfast due to poor quality but this was good.
My only small criticism was the evening meals, nothing particularly bad just average, eg the chicken tika masala was a bowl of curry soup with a few bits of chicken, small amount of rice and a very small nan bread, flavors fine but a bit small overall with ratio between curry and rice a little off.
This applies to all the meals we had, edible but could do better.
The staff are exceptional, very friendly and helpful giving the impression they enjoy their jobs, nothing forced, genuinely nice people. [Less]
