This place was lovely, my first time in England and these guys made it for me, they were so easy to chatter to and just made concrete in my head that England folk are friendly, helpful and lovely.

If you want to be in the centre of Swindon then the location is great. If you want views of Swindon for your room then this is great. However this is basically a tower block in the centre of Swindon with views of other tower blocks. The welcome was fine. The room was fine for a Holiday Inn Express and...

A nice Holiday Inn Express hotel in Swindon. Parking close at the railway station car park around 3-4 minutes walk away around £6 overnight. Good breakfast arrangements. Room very clean with no complaints. Also used the ironing room which was handy. Good choice of drinks at the bar too!

I really enjoyed staying here and thought the rooms were lovely. Nice and modern and absolutely spotlessly clean. I really found the rooms rather relaxing.

They have a drop off zone outside so provided its not busy you can park your car here and check in. Parking was a 5 minute walk away, next to Swindon railway station. The room was spacious, a good bed for my partner and I but the kids had to share a sofa bed and they did complain about it...

The reception is welcoming, though do not make the mistake of thinking it is one flight up from the ground and opt for the stairs - use the lift! Rooms pleasant, very standard but everything you would expect. Slightly disorienting numbering system means that finding your room at first can take a little thought, odd one side, even the other...
