You are not going to get excited by the hotel but it is functional and clean (although looking a bit tired in places..) I stayed for a couple of nights.. Room was clean, spacious, good en-suite and lovely and quiet. I had one of the best nights sleep in a hotel for a long time. Downside was that the swimming...

Dear Craig Thank you for your comments which i will pass onto the team. My apologies for the swimming pool being out of use but Swindon Borough Council who own the building will be repairing the damaged roof soon and the pool will be back in operation. I hope to welcome you again soon. Regards Ashwin

Attended a buffet lunch as a birthday party. Room was clean and well presented, food was very good (standard carvery buffet) and service was perfect. Car parking costs extra and involved walking along a rather muddy road so take care what shoes you choose!

Do not expect much of you book to stay here! Hotel and rooms look NOTHING like the photos on websites such as booking.com. Those photos are of actual Lydiard House, not this hotel. After checking in we were told the pool, sauna and steam room were out of order due to a leak in the roof. Our room smelt terrible,...

Could not sleep, bed too small, warn out that left us with a remarkable back pain for days, horrible. You cannot wait 2 years to change the beds! The pictures online are very misleading as everything else, luckily I booked one night.

Lydiard hotel is situated in a lovely location. The hotel on the inside suffers from its reliance on old furniture and things are generally dated. Dinner in the evening was fine, if a bit quaint. The bed room was small with 70s style furniture. This does need modernization. The conference facilities are fine and Lunch was pretty good.

Stayed for three nights recently whilst working in the area. I've been to the grounds of the house in the spring which was stunning so I thought I'd give the hotel a go. However, as soon as I stepped into the building I felt like "Sam Tyler" from "Life on Mars" who woke up from a coma in 1973. The...

This place is mis-represented on websites, it is not the stately home up the road, but an ugly 70's concrete block....do NOT stay here, it is dire. The heating clanks, the rooms are bare and noisy. The TV is tiny, the beds are uncomfortable. This feels like something out of the 70's that has never been updated I will try...

What a tiny, disgusting and dirty room! The mattress must be older than me and my wife combined. It was soo worn it felt like a water bed but with springs. Bathroom is soo dirty, pink mould growing everywhere, fittings hanging of the wall! If we hadn't driven 9hrs from Scotland today we'd be gone !
