“English haven with Japanese food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2012

On the hottest day of the year so far the grounds of Stanton House Hotel were the perfect place to be. Gardens bright with purple aliums and oriental poppies, buttercups in the fields and swans on the lake - all visible from the terrace, where we sipped our drinks and watched curious sheep looking back at us. The breakfast was quite expensive - but did include the option of miso soup instead of cornflakes. Later I sampled a desert from the fusion menu - aduki bean and vanilla cheesecake - this was stunningly presented and tasted as delicious as it looked. The hotel is owned by the Honda group I think; this explains the Japanese influence which certainly adds to the charm of this traditional country house hotel. It's a pity Japanese style hasn't been extended to the interior design which embraces the shabby chintz look and is dated and boring. This is my only criticism though. The staff were lovely, and one visit isn't long enough to explore the gorgeous grounds.

I had my wedding at Stanton House Hotel and I have to say it was an amazing day! The hotel and grounds are just beautiful, picture perfect and so quiet. The wedding team made it a magical day, everything went smoothly thanks to Cheryl our wedding co-ordinator and her team, she really helped us right from the very beginning. The food was fabulous, all the staff were very friendly, the bridal suite very luxurious and comfortable and the breakfasts! OMG you haven't had a breakfast untill you've tasted one at Stanton House!!

Gardens great, rooms comfortable but the restrurant needs some attention. Too many inexperienced waiters. It would be better to pay more qualified waiters. The "trainee" who served us had no idea what the japanese curry was. His response "just a normal curry" He also sat the wine on the table, unopened. I then had to ask for a glass to drink it from.

All up the accommodation was great but the restaurant let down the experience

Nice venue for a wedding. Disabled parking very poor, my wife has mobility issues and a fifty yard walk down hill to reception was poor. Little or no thought on access given. Hotels must do much better!

We stayed for one night on a deal - £66 for 1 night in an Exec Double inc Breakfast which was pretty good value really.

The room was reasonably sized and the bed was comfortable. We caught a glimpse of the standard doubles and they looked tiny.

The restaurant is Japanese with some European food and the food was pretty good without being WOW. The sushi for example was some way below what I would have expected given the hotel is a favoured resting point for Honda Execs.

The grounds are stunning and well worth a walk.

All in all a decent enough place to stay and the staff are very helpful.

Room Tip: Upgrade from a standard double if possible.

Stanton House is the main hotel for visitors to Honda Swindon, no doubt that's why the restaurant is Japanese which I love. It’s a lovely building in a nice location.

However if you stay there for anytime don't expect to stay just in the hotel, it could really do with a gym or a Spa, that would make it far more appealing for non-business users. The restaurant is lack-lustre in appearance, actually quite a depressing room. One night a week is all-you-can-eat Japanese buffet, good value if you have paid for meals with your room, but very busy those nights.

Room was ok but the hotel was desperately too warm. Greeted by a CRT television with fairly poor reception, and the bathrooms could do with the re-sealing of silicone and new grout, play a boil wash for the shower curtains which have a mildew smell. But, they are smaller points the maid did a very good job of cleaning every day.

I wish they would not use the 100's of pointless halogen lamps in the corridor in front the doors, utter waste of energy.

Would I stay here again? Probably have a better look at other locations before deciding to go back.

I normally stay in the cheaper travelodge type hotels, so imagine my surprise when I arrived.
the staff were freindly and helpful, the food although a bit on the pricey side was good .
the only downside was the decor in the room seemed a bit dated but the huge bathroom made up for it
