To be honest I was dreading staying here as after I had booked I read all of the reviews, which do not make good reading. However we came with an open mind and booked two rooms. On arrival the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The rooms we were allocated, 9 and 10 were fresh and clean. Remember this is...

I stayed here for a business trip in February and got a good rate for the hotel on booking.com First impressions from the outside seemed very nice and check-in was a smooth process, I was on the 1st floor and had a very big room. The bed seemed a bit odd as one side was sloped so wether it just...

The booking website displayed a beautiful picture of a rather Grand looking hotel; I'm not sure what that building is but it certainly isn't Lydiard House. Instead, after driving up and down the park twice I discovered the dingy looking building marked Conference Centre (would recommend some sign-posting to tell people that this is also the hotel). My room was...

Dear Sarah I am sorry that your stay with us wasn't a good one. We are the tenants of Swindon council and some repairs come under their wing and i will as usual keep asking for them to be done. The locks and TV will be looked at as will the toast at breakfast. The hotel needs an upgrade and...

I arrived for a night of peace at a hotel which promised to be comfortably well fitted, with a pool, and for a reasonable price. As I arrived I was greeted with a sign informing me The pool was out of order (mentioned nowhere on booking.com and only in tiny print on the confirmation email once non-refundable booked) and was...

You are not going to get excited by the hotel but it is functional and clean (although looking a bit tired in places..) I stayed for a couple of nights.. Room was clean, spacious, good en-suite and lovely and quiet. I had one of the best nights sleep in a hotel for a long time. Downside was that the swimming...

Dear Craig Thank you for your comments which i will pass onto the team.

Attended a buffet lunch as a birthday party. Room was clean and well presented, food was very good (standard carvery buffet) and service was perfect. Car parking costs extra and involved walking along a rather muddy road so take care what shoes you choose!

Do not expect much of you book to stay here! Hotel and rooms look NOTHING like the photos on websites such as booking.com. Those photos are of actual Lydiard House, not this hotel. After checking in we were told the pool, sauna and steam room were out of order due to a leak in the roof. Our room smelt terrible,...

Could not sleep, bed too small, warn out that left us with a remarkable back pain for days, horrible. You cannot wait 2 years to change the beds! The pictures online are very misleading as everything else, luckily I booked one night.

Lydiard hotel is situated in a lovely location. The hotel on the inside suffers from its reliance on old furniture and things are generally dated. Dinner in the evening was fine, if a bit quaint. The bed room was small with 70s style furniture. This does need modernization. The conference facilities are fine and Lunch was pretty good.
