The Schoolhouse Hotel, Swindon
What a disappointment!
Being pounced on constantly by the over zealous Dutch landlady reprimanding us for minor misdemeanours did little to endear us to the hotel. Overall it was shabby and quite disappointing compared with the other hotels we booked via for other towns and cities. A real shame as we were really looking forward to this one the most!

Most enjoyable
Although we only stayed for one night, it was very enjoyable .Our bed was very comfortable and the room spacious. The hotel is full of character and in a beautiful setting. Every one was very friendly including the lovely black dog who greeted us when we arrived. Would certainly stay there again.

Schoolhouse Stay
Very warm and freindly welcome with a speedy check in awaits you. A clean and airy room with a comfortable bed with fantastic surrounding views. Royal Wootton Bassett is just a short mini cab ride away. A great stay, I will be staying here again.

Hotel With Lots Of Character.
I was slightly apprehensive on arrival but any concerns were soon forgotten after being warmly welcomed by the lady owner. The room was large very clean and comfortable and the power hub with extra sockets and USB charger was a nice touch. My colleague who also stayed asked if she could provide a gluten free menu and we were told it was not a problem. We chose however to explore Wooten Bassett town centre which is only a mile and a half away and our host provided us with local taxi numbers. The town is great with real ales and a choice of Indian, Italian and a Chinese restaurant. The Indian was superb. Looking forward to revisiting.
