Great b&b to stay in for a visit to Wiltshire. Rooms were very clean, the owners were warm, helpful and had very good knowledge of the area. Very centrally located in Swindon and easy to find. Would definitely recommend

We stayed in this hotel for two weeks and we felt very welcomed. Stephen and his wife were great hosts and they served us a lovely breakfast every morning. The room and the bathroom were small but still very comfortable and clean; they were cleaned daily by the friendly staff. However, we had only a small wardrobe with hangers in... More

Conveniently located in the heart of Old town, dead centre on Victoria Road, bang opposite a bus stop, Swandown B&B is one of the best-located and reasonably priced hotels in Swindon. I reached this place at 11 PM but the management was kind enough to accommodate me well past the closing time of the front desk. There are quite a... More

Stayed for 2 nights September - 2015. The included breakfast was really nice and the service was spot on. The family who run the hotel are really friendly.
