Both the Restaurant and the Bar are excellent well-run favourites within this long established Hotel in Swindon's Old Town. The Bar is well stocked with local Brews and a very wide variety of Wines and Spirits. The food, whether you eat in the Bar or the Restaurant, is of excellent quality and value, with service and friendship to match! An...

This hotel is in a fantastic location, right in the main street of Old Town where all the bars, shops, clubs and restaurants are. There is a function room upstairs, a restaurant, a hotel and a club in the evenings. If you aren't planning on clubbing, I would suggest staying somewhere else, as it's quite noisy until the early hours...

Located in Old Town, although it is a large building the place is quite cosy. We went there for breakfast. It was all right but nothing special. Service was a but too relaxed and slow...although very friendly

Due to a large group shamefully letting the restaurant down with no communication whatsoever on Friday, our group of 5 were unbelievably the only people here. I have eaten here 3 times now and cannot fault the food, value for money and personable service. The dining room is sweet and good to sit and chat. You have to order all...

Despite it looking quite inviting, the Carvery put on here leaves a lot to be desired. The selection is wide but most of the choices do not meet the standard you would expect. Both the beef and the turkey were dry and chewy, most of the veg was over cooked and too soft. The honeyed parsnips and the gravy were...

We did not stay in this hotel overnight. We did have a couple of drinks to sample Arkells 3b's with a view to staying over one night. Well the beer was excellent the food looked good from what we could see. The surroundings are very pleasant. The only down side is that the hotel becomes a nightclub from about 8:30pm....

The restaurant is lovely but don't be fooled The bedrooms are seriously run down. The room was noisy and uncomfortable. There was absolutely no insulation between rooms or between the room and outside. I could hear other people's conversations and was kept awake by noise and lights from the street
