“A gem, Could not believe my luck”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2010

I chose Swindon as my base for my visit to attend the Ryder Cup and found Jessamine.
immaculate ensuite bedroom with modern fixtures. Many extras including international power adaptor for computer and a drop of at the train were much appreciated. Very helpful with recommendations for pubs for meals and for a great local wine shop. Wonderful hosts made me feel most welcome and the cooked to order breakfasts got my trip to the UK off to super start. Many thanks. I will be back.

Hi, This is Sudhakar from India and i visited Swindon last month i.e 20th June for 2 weeks for a business trip. My Manager had arranged Jessamine B&B and thats is one of the best thing he had done for me. Wow this place is awesome, i never thought that staying away from home can still give you a wonderful feeling of being at home.

This B&B is run by Winston and Sue, the perfect copuple for this perfect place. The service i got was more than the value for the money, i mean they are not running this place for money alone, they also do it with so much of passion.

It was a lifetime experience, i have been to so many hotels but still none could match the service and cleanliness compared to Jessamine. Usually in hotels service is something that u get on demand but here at jessamine service is available even before u need it.

The rooms are amazing with a cozy bed, LCD TV, CD player, Refrigerator, chocolates, sewing kit, 24x7 wifi internet. The cleanliness and the way rooms are maintained is excellent, a definite 5 star for it.

It is a few yards away from the victoria park ,its such a beautiful park to be and very close to most of the restuarants. One should definitly try Cosmos, wow an excellent restaurant. Thanks to Winston and Sue for taking me there.

Winston is a techie person, he always has a solution to all your problems and they need not be technical problems always and Sue a perfect home keeper, one should definitley taste her typical English breakfast. Oh! i miss them a lot now, they were delicious still can feel the taste of scrambled eggs, hashbrowns and those home made bread toasts..

I experienced so much of love and caring from the couples, they are so much fun to chat with, so friendly and winston is always bubbling with a great sense of humour. They treated me as their own son. I really miss Jessamine a lot now and keep sharing my wonderful experience with my family back in India now.

Most importantly, i have a very good respect and love for the english people which is because of this most beautiful and loving couple Winston and Sue.

I strongly recommend Jessamine B&B as the most perfect and best place to stay in Swindon and am sure anyone who stays will share the same opinion as i do.

This is the best B&B that I have stayed in about 5 or6 of them that I have tried. It is owned by a beautiful couple named Winston and Sue and they are simply too good. They go out of their way to make sue you feel at home. Rooms are very clean and the B&B is maintained very well. The wi-fi connectivity is very good. My colleague was even offered a laptop to work as his laptop had conked off. I would recommend anybody looking for a B&B in Swindon to first try Jessamine cottage to check out availability. You should consider yourself lucky to get an accommodation here. Cheers guys and happy travelling!!

All mod cons in a lovely renovated house that has kept its character.
Excellent breakfast of locally resourced products and home-made bread!
Pleasant company and interesting conversation.

I was made to feel welcome from the moment I arrived. Having never spent a night in a bed and breakfast I cannot compare it to others, however, compared to hotel chains such as the Marriott and Hilton it was far more welcoming and homely and the breakfast was amazing. The room I stayed in was an en-suite single and was very comfortable with an excellent mattress and decent shower/toilet. The owners seemed like very nice people and if I'd stayed for more than one night I'm sure I would have got to know them better. Definitely recommend this B&B and would choose it over the Marriott in Swindon again for sure!

Stayed for 7 weeks in February/March, this was the second B&B I stayed at in the Old Town and by far the better. Little details along with the warm welcome great choice at breakfast made my stay.
