Hilton Swindon Hotel is considerably less unique, but is much better suited to a large coach party due to its coach drop off/pick up and parking facilities.

Hilton Swindon Hotel is well suited for large coach parties.

A spacious reception area welcomes guests, with a rotating door to enter. The aptly named Lydiard Suite played host to a wedding reception during our date of stay, which can accommodate up to 300 guests at one time. Separated by multiple tiers, our group enjoyed a deluxe dinner at The Larder Restaurant on October 5, which was privatised by drawn curtains.

We were served fresh, homemade bread between meals, with a memorable, creamy lemon posset, decorated with a white chocolate swirl to finish. Upon arrival, my guest and I were allocated a twin room overlooking the rooftops, housing a more basic style compared to its Birmingham branch.

There are 171 guest rooms to meet the demand, with many local amenities situated adjacent. Hilton Swindon Hotel is located three miles from Swindon, set within close proximity to such attractions as Longleat Safari and Adventure Park. For more information visit www.hilton.com
