Arrived late on a Sunday - given a lovely room - problem free!
-
The restaurant was closing and I didn't fancy the room service plate charge, so I wandered down to the bar and spent a pleasant hour or so with the staff on top form. The food was wonderful and prepared so quickly I wondered if the chef had been stood beside me as I browsed the menu.
-
Breakfast service again was great, my only gripe was the mobile signal was poor in the heart of the restaurant - still eating in peace should be a right and I was glad not to hear ringtones and shouted conversations first thing in the morning.
I will certainly return - this establishment is great.

Dear Raffles69,

Thank you for taking the time to review Blunsdon house, your feedback is most welcome and appreciated. It’s great to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and that the various aspects of your time at Blunsdon met with your approval. Mobile phone reception is generally very good at Blunsdon with service from all the major UK networks but as you correctly point out it does suffer ever so slightly as you venture into the heart of the building.

We are glad to read that you made the most of this temporary technological respite to enjoy a hearty breakfast and we wish you safe onward travel and hope to see you again soon.

Kind regards

Many years since I visited Blunsdon House,now a very warm and friendly hotel. My husband booked for 2 nights in the Pavillion,which proved to be an excellent choice. Room was very roomy and comfortable with pleasant views of the gardens. We enjoyed breakfast and evening meals on both nights and thoroughly recommend both restaurants.
I look forward to staying again when we next visit the area.

Room Tip: The Pavillion seemed to be less busy in the week. The garden views absolutely lovely.

Dear Alison M,

Thank you for such a complimentary review of Blunsdon - it was great to have you back with us after such a while. Blunsdon has been owned and operated by my family since its inception in 1959 and it really is nice to read that you first visited us in your childhood - probably in my grandfather’s day (who is still going strong at 90!). I have passed this on for his appreciation and he was truly delighted! We look forward to having you back with us soon.

Warm wishes

Currently staying here, checking out in the morning.
Cannot rate this hotel enough. Check in easy, welcoming and informative.
Room massive as was bathroom. Had a beautiful view over the hills from a balcony which was a nice surprise as I'm a smoker and usually have to go right out of the hotel. Table, 2 chairs and an ashtray provided. Room and bathroom extremely clean and plenty of towels, smellies etc. Big TV and good amenities in room. I forgot toothpaste so maybe this could be provided but it's rare that hotels do provide this.
I ate at the carvery restaurant. I wouldn't say this was fantastic but I am extremely fussy about my roast dinners been from Yorkshire ;)
Bar area lovely and very quaint.
Staff on all levels were amazing. I was having trouble with my wifi connection and after a quick trip to reception I had a techy guy on the phone within ten minutes to help me get a secure connection.
All in all if I stay in Swindon again I will definitely return here.
Thanks to the staff for making my stay so lovely.

Myself and my parents always go to the al la carte restaurant at least once every 5 weeks and I cannot fault it at all...
Olga and Micheal are always willing to provide us with every thing we need which is lovely...
I cannot see us ever going anywhere else for such lovely food...
Please don't change anything within the hotel as it is lovely as it is...

We had a last minute change of our weekend plan & found the Blunsdon. Lovely & peaceful location. I asked for a scenic view & got it. We stayed in "The Pavilion" its a separate building from the main hotel with balconies, overlooking the Wiltshire countryside. The rooms are modern, plush and spacious. The 3 course meal buffet style with carvery is delicious & a nice selection to choose from and good value for money too. Nice atmosphere, friendly & helpful staff. We'll definitely go back.

Would like to thank all the staff for making our weekend extra special. 16 people for birthday celebrations 50th and 70th. Perfect location, outstanding service by all (even the bell boy Jordan). Men enjoyed their Golf and the Ladies all had treatments in the spa and used the leisure facilities. Food was very good and the Table they laid out for us was spectacular.
Many thanks to all staff you made our weekend unforgettable.

Room Tip: Rooms in the Pavillion all have balconies which was a bonus.

Appreciated the room upgrade, staff at reception were very good, room very good, carvery and staff very good. The only criticism we is the standard of the breakfast for a 4 star hotel. The fruit juices were not labelled and whilst the cold selection looked good, the selection on the cooked breakfast left a lot to be desired with dry crispy bacon where it had been on the hotplate too long and poorly cooked fried eggs. Next time, and there probably will be one, if there is no improvement then we will select the cold menu.
