The Great Western Hotel Swindon
Ranked #17 of 44 Swindon B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 September 2011

I stayed here with my boyfriend for a groupon deal, because we didn't pay much for it we didn't expect much but were pleasantly surprised! The room was clean and has everything you would need; tea, coffee, hair dryer even a trouser press! Our deal included an evening meal which was really nice! The only fault we had is that the window in our room was only single glazed so we were really cold at night. other than that we had a lovely stay!

Stayed here with friends for one night as part of a groupon deal for bed breakfast and dinner hotel is directly opposite train station which is very handy as we travelled by train as we entered hotel we weren't expecting much as we only paid 16 pound each for this deal but we were pleasantly surprised it has large clean ensuite rooms with nice comfy beds a few things could be changed to make this a fantastic hotel as it has potential cleaners had left a lot of rubbish outside our door but went we told the lady in the bar it was quickly cleared away but it was a shame it was there in the first place this is the only complaint we have to be fair. We went into the bar for our evening meal and were given a glass of wine each as part of deal we were then allowed to choose from a very nice food menu I had the steak which was really nice as were the other meals chosen by my friends the same can be said for breakfast excellent quality and we were well looked after by mark in the bar nothing was too much trouble he is lovely. thank you for a enjoyable stay

When we arrived at this hotel at 4oclock it was all shut up and took us 15 minutes to get someone to answer the door, we went to our room which wasnt cleaned from the previous occupants the bathroom was very dirty but fairplay the manager cleaned it for us, we went down for our continental breakfast and was told its cereals and toast we had the option of rice crispies and frosties there was no sugar which we had to ask for and we waited 20 for our toast which still hadnt arrived no opology nothing so we left the hotel very dissapointed we will not be going back here.
