... and is a city with 7 major hills, so we went on the "Skyline" tour and then the "City" tour. This town, aside from being famous for its water (similar to Daylesford), is famous for its stone - bath stone - and In early days was mined underneath current buildings, so much so that some of the areas we travelled are having trouble with subsidence. In one specific ...
... C.S. Lewis and seeing places and events that were written into the Narnia books. A supper of wine, cheese and crackers as the sun went down capped off a "brilliant" day. (A very British word). Helpful fact for all you Thames cruisers- you are only allowed to moor at a spot for 24 hrs, who knew! We found a scrap of paper attached to the side window informing us of that fact and warning of a £100 fine for non-compliance. (To be continued ...
... we leave the canal path and turn onto the busy A361. Fortunately, not far out of town, the road quiets down as cars have deviated towards other destinations. Our route takes us via Avebury henge, which we had visited on our Mad Max tour and we find ourselves only 16 km out of Swindon.
With one eye on the weather, we make good time into Swindon. Just as well, ...
... of you know that Smile Malawi was founded and is now supported by Elspeth, we met up last week and It was lovely looking at photos and chatting about the children, we are going to investigate other ways of making the orphange more self sufficient and one idea is a Mazie Mill. However until we can get projects like this up and running it is a lot of money to keep Smile operational. I have been asked about sponsoring a child through Secondary school (approx £100 ...
... smaller shops, relaxed a bit, even did some reading, and then Kelsea, Jessica and I headed to Pizza Express for dinner. I know what you're thinking...Pizza Express? In London, really? But this place was great! It was a cute Italian restaurant (a chain I presume) where Jess and I got margherita pizzas and Kelsea indulged in some type of pasta dish. As dinner finished, we headed to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, where we saw a performance of Shakespeare's Henry IV: ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott Swindon Hotel
After staying in a number of B&B type hotels in England, this standard modern hotel was a nice change. The hotel was full to the brim and everyone seemed to be having a good time. The evening meal in the bar was excellent for the price, as were the Havana cigars. In the morning, we ate a superb breakfast and then had time to go to nearby Avebury, strengthened and refreshed, in order to study Ancient British prehistory.
I just returned from the business trip from Swindon. I go there often and in the last year I stayed in their Marriott 5 times. 2 times out of 5 they had a problem with reservation. For me it was 40% chance that when I arrived after the long flight from US, an hour taxi ride, late at night, they greeted me with information that because of the system problems with reservations, they were overbooked and did not have room for me and therefore had to send me to another hotel. At best it is inconvenience, at worst you have to stay at whatever hotel that happen to be available and where you would not stay otherwise.
Can't tell you how many times we have stayed at this Marriott we love it. This hotel is fantastic, from the moment you arrive you are greeted as a valued guest and this continues throughout your stay. We have two children aged 4 and 7 who are made such a fuss of. All parts of the hotel are family friendly and children are welcome.
I have stayed at the Swindon Marriott twice; once for business and once for pleasure. The rooms are spotless and modern, and the breakfasts very substantial!
I stayed at the Marriott on Business and was impressed with it as a venue for a conference and for the business traveller.
What you see is what you get
This is a business hotel. Not a luxury hotel.
But the standard of the rooms, check in, bars etc is well above what you would expect in a hotel like this. The staff are welcoming, the beds are comfortable and it has everything a business traveller would want on an overnight stay in a town that has nothing else going for it.
If you really must stay overnight in Swindon on business, you can't go to far wrong with this one.
My wife and I stayed at the Swindon Marriott for three nights using Marriott Reward Points. The reason we stayed in Swindon was its proximity to Oxford, Bath, The Cotswolds, and Stonehenge. Physically, the property is exceptional. The place just is not run very well. We were checked in by a Benny Hill look alike who was pleasant enough but didn't seem to know what to do with the award certificate. The check-in process took almost 40 minutes with calls for assistance from severalothers who just stared at the certificate. Mabey they were all trainees and hadn't gotten to the chapter about Marriott Rewards. Once checked in things looked up. We went down to the consierge later to find out if there were any recommendations for a local restaurant. Apparently the consierge must have just arrived from a distant town because he didn't seem to know anything about anything. His answer to virtually every question was a befuddled stare. He was sweating allot. The biggest surprise was when we checked out. Even though we used Marriott Rewards Points there still was the equivalent of a $50 per night accomodation charge. All attempts to obtain an explanation were met with the same befuddled stare, but no explanation. There is a dearth of good hotels in Swindon so even with the problems there are not many better choices in the area.
Fantastic New refurbished hotel
5 Star service for a four star price. We had a fantastic 3 night stay.
The best hotel and lobby in Swindon
Wow! What a lovely experience!
As a teacher leader of a group of 32, I was initially disappointed when our travel company told us we had to stay a night in Swindon instead of Bath because sports events had booked all hotels in Bath.
But what a wonderful hotel! the staff met our coach with glass of juice, cheerfully explained meal times, etc. The rooms were air-conditioned (we had hit a heat wave), clean, tastefully decorated.
We ate both dinner and breakfast! excellent food and service! I hope I can stay here again as we travel from one part of England to another.
Had to spend a Sunday night here recently. Now Swindon's not got much going for it (perhaps that's harsh, but it's always been mocked for having nothing) and the hotel's fine. Guests arriving get a lovely view of the swimming pool and the gym, not sure if that's good for the people using them, but Swindon seems full of fit girls, so I'm not complaining! Two complaints. The Air Con doesn't exist. It's a 1980's hotel (I guess) and the air con is one of these air change units on the wall, meaning you never get very cold air even if you want it! And the second point, aimed at Marriott in general rather than Swindon, I'm convinced they're cutting down on the number of packets of biscuits they leave in the rooms. Still, those aren't really major complaints are they? And the view of the gym made up for it!
