Stanton House Hotel

Reviewed 27 March 2014

I stayed at the hotel as a wedding guest, (the actual wedding took place in the hotel). If you are thinking of using it for your wedding, it is well worth considering,( It has a large disco area/bar, eating area and good sitting area with bar - go and take a look).

We booked a room for two plus breakfast for £180 for two nights. This was a special wedding rate and probably the price would be the same but without the included breakfasts at any other time. The outside of the hotel is Elizabethan and well renovated and extended. It stands on a slope overlooking quite sensational grounds - ideal for wedding photographs or an early wake up walk.
Inside the hotel has been carefully modernised and is clean and comfortable. The rooms are not huge but big enough and the bathrooms are quite large. Watch out for the shower though, which is over a bath - the bath sides are quite high, no hand rails or bath mats, so if you have an older member of the family they may have some difficulty. Most rooms have great views but not all - you should enquire if it matters to you. You can have bigger if you are willing to pay the extra.
The food was better than adequate although getting a good bottle of wine was impossible but then the price of around £16 a bottle was about half of what I usually have to pay in hotels. In fact I found the drinks quite good value over all. Unlike the evening meals breakfast was eaten on tables without table cloths on a help yourself basis but I couldn't find anything wrong with the food, except they cook the food as it is required so sometimes there was a pause between courses - but then it was freshly cooked and the staff were friendly.

I enjoyed the whole occasion. You can see in places that they are aware of keeping the overheads down, hence four stars not five, but I have paid a lot more for no better and I definitely have plans to return there in the future - so five stars for value for money!

Room Tip: For the best views ask for a room facing the lake and avoid one overlooking the glass extension. My...

Stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of March. The hotel is located in a wonderful location outside Swindon but with quick and easy access to it, next to a delightful park with a lake. We enjoyed a leisurely walk round it despite the poor weather. The hotel is a very attractive building and our room was comfortable. The bed was a standard double but comfortable with good bedding.
We found it lacking a bit in atmosphere in the conservatory as the bar was closed, so didn't linger after having only one drink on Saturday evening. The only open bar was part of the restaurant so not quite as relaxing to sit in.
We had a very nice meal on Sunday evening - my husband enjoyed the Japanese selection.
Breakfast was ok, nothing outstanding about it.

If you like Japanese food, then this is a delightful surprise with splendid sushi and excellent miso soup. We stayed one night en route to a party and found the staff very friendly and helpful. The parkland around the hotel and the lake is lovely and I wish we had had more time to explore and walk. So close to city sprawl this is a delightful oasis of green charm.

Thank you for your kind comments, we are extremely happy that you enjoyed your Japanese meal and we look forward to welcoming you back soon, our Japanese "All you can eat" buffet which is served every Thursday night is proving very popular and offers a great choice of food, so you can try lots of new items.

We booked here for a little mini-break whilst visting the area nearby. We paid around £300.00 for three nights bed and breakfast and including a three course meal with glass of wine on the final evening. Check in was very quick however asking if it was possible for a candle in my boyfriends dessert for his birthday if they had one, I was told I would need to provide it myself, how exactly I was supposed to leave the hotel and head to sainsburys without him knowing I have no idea especially as we came in his car. Our room which we had booked which was room 128 was lovely, warm and homely with a selection of teas, coffee and hot chocolate. Dinner was lovley the steak I had was cooked just right, we also loved the Japanese twist to the hotel. Maybe an idea to stock the Chapel Down Wines as there wasnt any english wines on the menu.

Room Tip: Room 128 overlooked a court yard so was very quiet

Thank you for your kind comments, I am sorry that we were unable to provide you with a birthday candle, I am sure that we could have tried a little bit harder to assist you with this. We look forward to welcoming you again possibly on your birthday :)

The room was not at all like the pictures shown on the website.
The service at breakfast was rather slow and the cooked breakfast was not replenished frequently enough, leaving guests standing around waiting for food. Overall it was disappointing.

Thank you for the information, there are various type & styles of bedrooms throughout the Hotel and try to show as many as possible on our website, the breakfast buffet is replenished throughout the morning to keep the quality as high as possible, unfortunately there are sometimes delays but we believe that our guests are more appreciative of good quality and are prepared to wait for this, however I understand your comments and will look at this with the Restaurant and Kitchen staff.

We stayed at the hotel on a " secret escapes" deal, excellent value for money. We had a minor problem at check in, there was no record of our booking, the receptionist thought that the booking had gone through to junk mail which obviously needs to be sorted out for future bookings. However it was all sorted very quickly and we were checked in our room within 20 mins. The room was spacious and very clean as was the rest of the hotel. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The deal included a 3 course meal, Japanese or English, we chose the Japanese menu which was very good but if I'am honest not to my palette, but that's a matter of taste, it certainly went down well with all the other diners,our waitress was very good when we questioned her about the menu, she really knew her stuff, a credit to the hotel. Breakfast was very good, lots of choice and again the staff were very attentive. A very enjoyable stay, We would stay again and highly recommend it to others.

Not for me. Too far out of Swindon with a strange English meets Japanese menu combination - perhaps on account of its proximity to the Honda Factory.

Functional but the Nothing enchanting about it.

Decent room though (although the TV did not have a clear picture).
