“nice for cold weather, Ok prices but no air conditioning”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

Clean nice hotel, in short driving distance to a supermarket, a number of shops and a pharmacy. Not equipped for hot weather, no air conditioning. Family room is small, no air coming in the rooms even when the door and window is open. Rooms facing the road are not silent enough due to occasional cars and trucks passing by. The Briars Fayre pub nearby provides a nice breakfast and is a fairly priced choice for all meals.

Thank you for your feedback, unfortunately we do not have air conditioning but many of the new built Premier Inn hotels do have this.

We hope to welcome you back to Premier Inn in the future.

With kind regards,

I stayed here for one night last week when it was still quite hot. Dismayed to find that there is no air-con and that the windows hardly opened.

The hotel did do what they could: A fan and also the provision of sheets (rather than the duvet). I didn't test out the "good night guarantee" although judging by other reviews it would have been honoured.

That aside, a very good place, with very friendly service and everything working. The room was as clean as usual (a good thing).

I will definitely keep staying in Premier Inns

This is a great Premier Inn, easy to find, parking right outside, a great value restaurant right across from it and not far from a large Tesco for petrol or anything you may have forgotten. Loved the deep, comfy mattress and the choice of firm or soft pillows, a decent shower that was spotless and we heard no noise from either inside or out of the hotel during our stay. My only one critisim is it has no air conditioning and window that barely opens, so during the recent warm weather our room was unbearably hot, so much so they honored their Good Nights Sleep Guarantee as there were no other cooler rooms available. The staff did close the curtains and open the windows and did put a fan in our room which was very nice of them but due to the outside temp (30 degrees) it did little to lower the temperature. I would stay here again but take a fan with you!

Room Tip: Take a fan with you!

Thank you for your feedback, we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Swindon Central, although I would like to apologise for the room being extremley warm during this hot period we have had. Many of the older Premier Inns such as Swindon Central do not have air-con but provide fans.

In the future, if you would like to stay at a hotel with air-con, you are more than welcome to contact the hotel directly and find out before you book but you can find out online too.

Our windows have restrictors for Health & Safety reasons, this is why you found the windows would not open wide.

We hope to welcome you again in some of our other Premier Inn hotels.

With kind regards,

Lucy Raynor.

Parking good, staff excellent, rooms clean. Co-op and pizza hut very close to location. The site hasn't the best views but who cares when it is quiet for a great night sleep. Room was large enough for family.

I stayed at this Premier Inn on business with my husband this month. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room was very clean and spacious. We will definitely stay here again when in the area.

Room Tip: Sorry no swimming pool here

All in all it was ok , rooms big but very bare , good location as u want something just outside the city centre but could hear drilling from the construction site next door part from that it was a good get any spot . I didn't like the fact you have to walking next door for food , but food was ok , steak and chips nice but my partner ordered salad which was old and brown .

Stayed here for one night while in Swindon. The hotel is clean and everything is new. This is the kind of hotel you stay at when you know you're just going to sleep there. The hotel offers a good night sleep for a cheap rate but it's completely soulless. But for one night it's perfect! Free parking, comfortable beds, good sized room with coffee/tea making facilities. Our son even got a little goodybag upon arrival.

The only bad thing was that wifi wasn't included (only 30 mins). It was just £3 but I would have prefered it if they would have increased the price and included it in the rate of the room. I could definitely stay there again.
