Located in an industrial park, it is not suited for people who are visiting Swindon. However, if you just passing by, or don't mind using a car, this is a hidden gem.
This previous Ibis hotel was bought and completely refurbished in 2009 by the French Campanile group, with a fresh design in the rooms. From the outside, it still looks like a youth hostel with a car park. However, once you are in, you will be surprised.
The rooms are small and not designed for a long stay - no cupboard for example, but nevertheless there is enough space for your stuff and there are cloth hangers. You have a large desk, nice TV set, the bathroom is normal sized, and the very best: the bed is extremely comfortable.
If you stay with two people in a room, ask for additional towels. It seems most rooms are usually single occupied.
WiFi is for free without any hassle. A hair drayer is in the room, coffee/tea maker as well, no pressing iron.
We haven't tried anything from the bar/restaurant, just because of time reasons - but from a quick look the breakfast looked nice (continental £6, English £8).
Pets are allowed for £5.
It is really good value for money - we paid £46.95 for double. Comparable rooms in Swindon were only available from £99.
