“Great choice. Well done me!”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

Last minute booking after toiling on the M25 and not fancying the final drive home to the West Country. Not sure which was the more impressive effort; my selection or the chef's cooking.
Very nice hotel, with pleasant ambience, comfortable if quiet bars, and a log fire despite the favourable weather. Dinner was superb. Scallops with the best chorizo I have tasted, accompanied with a lobster bisque. Fillet steak main was nicely cooked and the parfait dessert was unnecessary but amazing. Great wine list with some really god picks at reasonable prices.
Only 10-15 minutes off the M4 so location is great and there's a decent golf course and fitness suite. Rooms are comfortable if not exceptional. All in all this is a well priced and great value for money stay.

Having stayed on several previous group visits, I was not disappointed on my return to this lovely property, set is its own grounds, but within easy reach of Swindon. This time I had 44 in my group and they were soon checked in and off to their rooms to relax or take a dip in the pool, before dinner. Easy to park the coach in the large car park. Many people commented on how large their rooms were offering good facilities.
We had a 3 course carvery style dinner in Christophers restaurant, with lots of choice and friendly staff. Also a superb choice at breakfast the next morning. Although the hotel was very busy with a couple of weddings and other parties going on, with their being so much space it did not seem crowded. My group were very happy. not really wanting to leave the next morning and several booked for my next visit to this hotel, on the return journey.

Dear Lynda K

Thank you for taking the time to review Blunsdon House Hotel. Naturally we were delighted to host your group, it is nice to read that your trip was hugely successful and that your entire host of guests was very pleased, no easy feat with such a diverse crowd! It is particularly gratifying to read that some of you guests have already rebooked - after all return custom is the best possible endorsement! With that in mind we look forward to seeing your group again soon.

Kind regards

Large hotel on the outskirts of Swindon. On arrival the staff were very polite and helpful, our room was great, very clean and a good size. All the usual facilities, tea and coffee making, including a teapot for the tea and a filter coffee maker, with sachets of ground coffee, unusual and very nice.
The 3 course buffet dinner in the restaurant was first class, everything was cooked properly and very tasty and hot, the service was excellent, same to be said of the breakfast the following day after a comfortable and quiet night's sleep.
Would certainly recommend this hotel.

My husband booked an impromptu stay on Sat 22nd March as a birthday treat. On check in new were upgraded free of charge to a lovely Pavilion room overlooking the golf course. We ate in the bar and the food and drinks were both very reasonable and high quality. Breakfast offered a huge choice and the staff were very attentive and friendly. Perfect base for exploring Cirencester and The Cotswolds.

Room Tip: Pavilion rooms have great views

Arrived just after check in time, staff friendly, courteous and very helpful. Most of the holtel was OK, parts of the dining area were "dated" but the rest of the place was very good. On our first night we booked a meal in the carvery, we had to move because a light was flickering next to us. Not a problem, while we went and got our main course all the moving was done for us. Food was excellent including the breakfasts, something simple that so many hotels get so wrong. We had to move room after a couple of days as the shower stopped working, again all our clothing and bags were transferred without a fuss, and the second room was bigger, king size bed etc.
Standard of cleanliness very good, the bath room was excellent in both rooms. Only the weather was a bit iffy! Can't blame the hotel for that though.

Dear Catface1960,

Thank you for posting a review of Blunsdon House Hotel. Please accept our apologies for the problem you encountered with your shower during your time with us, the Aqualisa Digital Quartz units we use are (normally) exceptionally reliable and offer an absolutely fantastic guest experience. We are glad to read that the duty management team at the time of your stay was able to resolve this “hiccup” swiftly and to your satisfaction and that you enjoyed your stay as a whole.

You may also be glad to know that Christopher's restaurant will soon be undergoing significant renovation and that we have an exciting new concept lined up. You can rest assured that we receive at least 1-2 days of glorious sunshine in Swindon annually - you will simply have to visit more frequently to increase you chances of successfully catching it. Until then we will keep the umbrella's at the ready and wish you safe travels.

Kind regards
