Village Hotel Swindon
Ranked #7 of 25 Hotels in Swindon
Reviewed 18 February 2014

De vere village is out of the way but has got all you need for the perfect get away spot. There is a cineworld just close by as well as a nice Indian restaurant.

The room was spacious and decor was nice. A little let down with the dented kettle and leaking shower. The plus was free wifi :)

There was a spa within the hotel too and free gym pass.

I was welcomed with an amazingly tasty pizza at the door and a friendly smile.

Comfortable bed and brilliant night sleep. Breakfast was good. Staff are courteous and lovely (their cheery attitude made the rainy morning bearable).

Will visit again.

Room Tip: Just cos of the leaking shower avoid 245.

Stayed here for a Valentine's Break with a package booked through Expedia. Went for this sort of hotel because it represented a change from the norm for us. Often i find with grander places you suffer a price hike for facilities you rarely use or appreciate. Room was certainly affordable and the majority of the facilities are very well endeavored. Staff too were very welcoming, professional and pleasant. However there are a number of things which let it down for us. I think the first thing to say is that I actually tried to contact the hotel through the online contact form and this email was never (even to this day) responded to - I actually had to google the number of the hotel and call them direct as it seemed that whilst the booking for the stay was o.k the booking for the massage had to be done seperately, the delay caused meant that I was unable to get a massage booked until 2 hours after we should have been on our way home. The room was quite spacious and clean however the finish was poor (one of the units was cracked and peeling). Another area of criticism is in the spa - this is a child friendly hotel and one which my daughter would enjoy however we only had an hour in the spa to ourselves before it was closed. The final area of criticism was the breakfast. Whilst the evening meal was fantastic (there is a choice of pub and Italian style meals both in their own restaurant) The breakfast is held in the Italian restaurant with the overflow guests ushered into the pub area. This meant that the queues for the breakfast food were just dire. Ensuring a really long wait and then when you get there you realise that actually you fancied toast as well and so you have to go back. Why not have two breakfast areas? The cooked breakfast I had was very grease laden too. Not good. Despite these complaints I wont say I was so disappointed that I wont ever go back - as I said my daughter would enjoy it and there is a local cinema as well a laser quest within a few minutes walk. However I wouldn't go here for more than a nights stay and I think that should speak volumes for anyone reading this or considering a break based upon the facilities alone.

Room Tip: Upgrade if you can

We booked a kings suite which was a very good size and very clean however the room is very dark with black wallpaper and black lampshades. There are no main lights in the room so it does get very dark very quickly. The room was quite cold and we had to request an extra heater apart from this the beds are extremely comfy and the breakfast was tasty. However I probably would try a different hotel if I went back to Swindon again.

very enjoyable stay here yet again. perfect location,lovely rooms and facilities. only downside was lack of tv and heating on the 1st night but this was due to severe weather conditions. staff were very sympathetic and took money off our stay as a way of compensation. dealt with problem very well. really is a lovely place with amazing rooms. will be back soon

Room Tip: king suite is a bargain

I visit here regularly with business and find the hotel on the whole good. Negatives: breakfast cutlery are never quite clean; the rooms are quite dark although they have put new brighter lamps in. Positives: THE STAFF- what a great service! The reception team are excellent. They cannot do enough to help, they are friendly and professional. I would particularly like to thank Nancy, who is a complete gem!

A colleague bought us this weekend away for a Xmas pressie and the fact it included 'Boogie night' on Friday - well i really wasn't sure about it. As it happens we had a really great night.

Upon arrival i was a little concerned as the hotel is situated in a retail park so no views or atmosphere, however the hotel itself is really very good and in fact opposite the hotel there is a cinema and a couple of really good Indian restaurants which worked well for us. Our room was lovely (upgraded) and the spa facilities were brilliant. We only ate in the bar/restaurant which was ok although wine pretty expensive and not a great selection. Breakfast very good however. Definately recommended.

Recently joined the village for the gym facilities.
I cant tell you how lovely this venue is.
The gym has great staff, superb well maintained equipment and many varied classes which are from toddlers up.
As a member i receive member benefits such as discount in The Victory Pub and the Italian resturant. Plus there is a great little starbucks in the foyer which makes rhis a great place to meet with friends for coffee.
I have also enjoyed and been treated to some lovely pampering spa treatments.
Each month there are tribute acts and comedy nights which are always fun and a some night include meals.
Ideal location if you are staying here as its local to shops, cinema, bowling. Thanks guys for been a great team
