Well, the US adventure was great but we're now back in Britain and the usual routine. This week I am staying in the Holiday Inn Swindon. As before, the room looks a little dated although it's clean and efficient.
The pool is closed until further notice, so I am unable to test out that facility. The pool and fitness area is one of the redeeming features of this hotel.
There is a large car park, although half of it is around the back and has no direct access to the hotel. It's a bit of a disappointment as the front car park gets full quickly as the gym is only accessible through reception.
Overall, I find it an acceptable price and location but will be trying out some other hotels in the coming weeks.
