My husband and I stayed at this venue for one night recently on our own and had a really good stay and the staff that looked after us were very attentive and friendly and we found it on late.rooms.com and it was reasonably priced and breakfast was additional but again adequately priced and included COSTA coffee because of this we returned a second time this weekend with my parents for a one night stay and again the price was reasonable BUT it was not the same and we will NOT be returning for another visit !!
The Goddard Arms hotel is what i says on the tin but it doesn't live up to that - we returned to the hotel at 11.30pm and ordered drinks that was after a strong resistance from the door staff who were not going to allow us entry until we could prove we were resident. Once drinking up time was bellowed out, the door staff swung into action to clear customers out again that included us until we told them we were resident in the 'hotel' !! we then attempted to purchase another round of drinks but were told by a member of staff that we couldn't and he bar was shut - but this is a hotel ?? quite clearly not........another member of staff who called himself the 'duty manager' then very rudely and abruptly told us they were not a hotel and no longer able to serve drinks in the bar but we could have drinks and take them up to our rooms to consume !! we then ordered drinks which included an 'irish coffee' and this was nothing other than a black filter coffee with brandy in a seperate glass with some milk !!!
We then went to bed as the night was ruined by the service we could not have and the staff who were extremely rude and unhelpful and quite clearly just wanted to go home.
If you are looking for a HOTEL I would suggest looking for a real one and NOT to stay here if you want any form of service past midnight !!
This turned out to be really disappointing after the first visit was so nice but we will not be returning.

Room Tip: don't stay if you want hotel service as this is NOT one !!

My fiancée and I had a rare night off from a 10yr old and were looking for somewhere close by and reasonable and found The Goddard Arms on the Late Rooms website. Even though our stay was on a busy Friday night for the pub downstairs, once you were upstairs you couldn't hear any noise at all, even with the window open as it was a hot night. Room 11 was very tastefully decorated with a lovely comfy bed and fluffy pillows. Tea, coffee, water and biscuits were available in the rooms. We didn't stay for breakfast, but have eaten there before and the menu is varied and very good. Centrally located in the middle of Swindon Old Town with plenty of restaurants and bars. Would recommend.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Lively pub with great beer garden. We were not disturbed by noise at all during our stay. Staff were very friendly, helpful and polite.

My partner and i stayed here over night with full english breakfast, the room was very small and dark. The bathroom was a let down with hairs in the bath and mould on the window sill and the bottom of the shower screen.The breakfast we was looking forward to the next morning , they brought us out our breakfast minus the fried egg which the chef forgot to put it on the plate, and plenty of cereals on display but no sugar to be found anywhere, we will not stay at this hotel again due to lack of committment to customers.

We did not stay here and have just had a family meal at the Goddard which was fairly enjoyable; I asked for tartare sauce to go with my fish cakes and was told that tartare sauce would be an extra cost!! However, tomato sauce was free!! I do not understand how a standard accompaniment to fish i.e. tartare sauce would be charged as an extra. It is the same as charging extra for apple sauce with pork, or mint sauce with lamb. Please explain why you would do this? A mystery........????
