“A good business Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

I stayed one night before a conference I was attending. A good business hotel at a good price. It is set in some pleasant grounds which allows for a nice walk. There is nothing in the immediate area so it is all about the Hotel. The room got a bit stuffy at night - so it was a good job it was not a warm night. The only real gripe I have would be the quality of the food served in the bar which was pretty poor. No doubt I will be back because they are very good at conferences.

We stayed for the weekend at the beginning of August and had a great stay. The dinner on the first evening was excellent, although wine is very expensive. The room was clean and had everything needed. The only complaint we had was the soft mattress, but this may suit some. The pool area was lovely and steam room and Jacuzzi spacious. It was great that the pool had adult only times as well as family times. The staff were all fantastic, extremely polite and helpful, nothing was too much trouble especially at breakfast when eggs were prepared fresh to liking if requested. We had a lovely visit to Avebury and the pub in the village of Avebury. This hotel is in a great location for the shopping in Swindon and access to the M4 yet is in the countryside making it a tranquil setting. We would use this hotel and the PH hotels again.

Well where do I start . What an amazing place we picked for a weekend for aour friends wedding near by. We where greeted by a wonderful friendly receptionist at the front of house by the name of Sandrine who was so helpful that she organised a local hairdresser in the village for my wife . The hotel was immaculate from reception to our room that was spacious and very comfortable . I also met the hotel manager Ray Mckibben who was a perfect host and a gent . The restaurant had a great choice for breakfasts and the lounge was comfortable with teas coffees most of the day
people if there is any bad reviews on this place please ignore wonderful place wonderful staff.

Room Tip: I think any room would be okay

Lovely hotel and grounds, quiet area, and excellent customer service. Speedy check in and room was very clean and tidy. Restaurant staff very attentive and food was lovely and well cooked, with an excellent selection, and nothing too much trouble. Comfortable lounge area for relaxing. Didn't test the leisure facilities but will next time. Only downside was lack of air conditioning and only a tiny opening window which didn't really cool the room down, but we didn't let it spoil our stay.

Room Tip: We were in room 225 on the first floor. Near lift and stairs and very quiet.

Admittedly, stayed here on an internet deal on the way home from a weekend away (and not far from home!) - rather an odd location, but when you read the history of the site, you understand. Aside from the large formal & corporate facade, it was actually very good - the food was excellent, there was a wedding on, and we made sure we ate before the hoards arrived, but it was still fresh and tasty. Would definitely use as a business/conference facility. Downsides - TV channel selection poor, room was hot (not really a fault - but there were no fans) and the drinks were a little pricey. But overall - a surprise, and very tempted to use again.

We stayed for two nights earlier this month at the Alexandra hotel/conference complex and were very pleased with our choice.
The facilities on offer, including a swimming pool, sauna and gym, were excellent.
The rooms and communal areas have been furnished to a high standard and everywhere was very clean.
The staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed here for two nights for my god-daughters wedding, taking advantage of a very good deal for the wedding party. I felt I must write as it was such a successful weekend.
On Friday night arrival, guests congregated in the large lounge area, which had more than enough seating capacity, coffee and soft drinks were on hand, along with bowls of peanuts and banana chips - very welcome for some that had travelled far and wide.
But what made the hotel gain the 5 stars we gave, was the staff. Nothing was too much trouble, if we asked for something it came immediately, I must say that the master of ceremonies for the day was excellent (Bilal?) he worked tirelessly for the whole weekend (does he sleep?) from early morning breakfast to last orders at the bar.
Our room was a little out of the way, but benefited from being on the ground floor, with parking very close by. No concerns about the room at all, very clean and good facilities. Looking at the review below, yes, it was hot in the rooms, but you only had to ask for a fan and it was there. Yes, the Wi-Fi wasn't brilliant in the rooms but more than adequate in the public places, and as we were at a wedding we weren't too concerned with this.
The buffet style breakfast was vast - and kept well topped up considering the numbers of people there. The wedding breakfast was excellent - good sized portions, sea bass was beautifully cooked. There are vast grounds around the hotel, good for walking in the morning. Whilst there are two lovely outside seating areas within the confines of the hotel, maybe more could be made of the outside grassed areas, some landscaping or further seating areas? There is a very well equipped gym and the swimming pool looked clean and inviting - unfortunately we ran out of time to put them to the test.
