We stayed at the Old Post Office for 2 nights, Jackie and Roger were wonderful hosts, and the warm welcome was so nice, we were promptly shown to our room which was well decorated and spotlessly clean the ensuite was also immaculate, the bed was very comfortable, and we both slept very well. Breakfast is an additional cost per person...

My wife and I have just spent two nights at The Old Post Office.I can only confirm that all the positive comments are absolutely accurate but what really makes this place unique is Jackie she is a talented opera singer with a big voice and a bigger heart.I am somewhat disappointed that she seems rather profligate in her dispensation of...

Jackie & Roger are lovely hosts and the accommodation was immaculate. The best cooked breakfast we have ever had with all locally sourced ingredients - even the tomatoes tasted good! Will definitely return if we are back in that part of the world again.

My family and I stayed here after we were let down by another B&B. The beds were very comfortable, everything was spotless and the hospitality was fantastic. Will stay here again if I am in the area and have recommended it to others

I wish I could stay here on all my business trips, fantastic value for money, I was greeted by the warmest of hugs from owner Jackie, this woman is an inspiration with an amazing opera voice, the room was so comfortable and the breakfast is must have, locally sourced food cooked to perfection. It's not often hotels and their hosts...

We needed some accomodation for the night and what a lovely find. Jackie the owner was very welcoming and this b&b is very well organised with a book for nearby take aways/pubs etc. Very comfy bed and nice clean rooms, very reasonable too. Her full English was tops and set us up for the thanks. One to remember for next...

We simply loved this cozy and vert tidy place with a hospitality that makes you feeling a part of the family. The breakfast is a class of its own and once there, one will come back! Well deserved awards year after year, fair prices even in peak times, and just THE place to stay in Swindon and surroundings.

The Old Post Office in South Marston is still probably the best B&B in England. I stayed for 3 nights and was once again impressed by the friendliness of the owners - Roger & Jackie, by the comfort of the bed and the general standard of the room. If I am again in the area I will almost certainly stay...
