        Very poor experience - not expected from a De Vere establishment. Bedroom decor was tired, plug in sink didn't work, pillows uncomfortable. It took over 2hrs to serve 2 courses for the evening meal despite there being only 3 other tables in use - quality of food was poor and not offered any coffee.

      • Couple
        5.8

        polite unobtrusive staff. Comfortable beds, clean rooms and good facilities nearby. Nice breakfast.

        Very expensive drinks in the bar - poor wine for very high prices and white wine was warm.

      • Family with children
        9.2

        Almost everything. The room was clean and spacous, the facilities were great, my son loved the pool, housekeeping staff were very helpful, fantastic location, easy to find. I dont think I could prase it any more.

        The reception staff were not approachable, didnt have much local knowledge, didnt feel like I could approach them. The bar food was average, along with the menu. It could have been more varied as we were there for 8 nights. We didnt realise there was a childs menu till the last night, no sign or staff didnt inform us.

        Good choice at breakfast. Easy check in/out. Parking convenient. Pleasant staff. Good value for somewhere to stay when visiting local family. Nice to have newspaper in the morning.

        Light not working in corridor outside room my 84 year old father was in (162) and not repaired - a notice was simply put up saying engineer would be there on Tuesday - we were there Sunday night. Bed was very soft and bad for backs (room 156) and pillows were not good quality. Chipped loo seat in my father's room (162). No milk for tea tray (room 156).

        Good value for money

        Our toilet was not very clean, a toilet brush was clearly not used!

        Very nice, clean, newly refurbished hotel. Loved the food in Buca's in the evening. Nice double room, very clean and comfortable. Good choice of breakfast food, pleasant staff throughout the hotel. I booked a double/twin room through Booked.net and mentioned in the comments that I would like a double room with a travel cot in it, and that is exactly what I got. Perfect!

        Spacious rooms, good location, between Oxford, Bath and Stonehenge

        Noise from the road

      • Couple
        7.8

        The facilities around the hotel ie cinema, restaurants etc. All within walking distance. Hotel was nice.

        There was no fridge and no safe in the rooms

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        The food was very good and the service impeccable.

        The outside tables were never really cleaned properly and ash trays emptied. There was a lot of noise by a group of party goers that kept me awake from 1.00 A.M. to 3.00 A.M. and maybe management should have taken more control. Very difficult, I know, but both my mother and brother were woken by the noise and if they were then others would be too.

        having never stayed in one of your hotels we were alittle nervous of what to expect. However the room was wonderful and maybe we just struck lucky to get such a large room, but thank you swindon for that. We would happily use your hotels again.

        the standard of food in the victorian pub was very mediocre and we regreted not using the other restaurant instead.Breakfast in the morning is always something of a lottery in hotels. Unforunatley the 3 fired eggs left on the hotplate looked as though they had been there from the start of breakfast. we could have asked for some fresh ones but chose the scrambled instead, which were fine as was the rest of the meal. the plates were cold and that did not help withy the temperature of the breafast.

      • Family with children

        The hotel was better than expected, as attending concert at Lydiard House, staff gave quickest walking route, which took only 20mins, which was very helpful. Breakfast excellent great choice, would definately stay at a de vere hotel again. Bit of a mix up upon check in but this was sorted out quickly.

      • Family with children
        6.2

        Restaurant was quite good

        Sofa bed veru uncomfortable - my daughter could not sleep on the first night. I asked for a better mattress in the morning, when I returned that night nothing had been done and I was told no mattress was available. Eventually a thicker mattress was put on the sofa bed. No in room fridge to keep drinks cool. Confusion over bill even though I checked before arrival and also on arrival that I had paid in full.

      • Couple
        7.4

        comfortable rooms. great location for my trip

        My reservation could not be found, staff were not very help full. Booked.net ended up helping

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        Convenience of location, very near to m4 motorway. Helpful staff, good breakfast and leisure facilities also free parking. Very good value at the reduced internet price.

        Poor choice of carpet in reception area which even though new, had a shabby look due to the way the pile fell in different areas. The dark decor was slightly oppressive and in need of some light relief.

      • Family with children
        7.4

        good facilities and good place for the family day out.

        The hotel looks like just been refurbishment for a while and there exist smell from the new fitted carpet. Apart from that, the room looks cozy and comfortable.
