Overview

Alexandra House is set in 20 acres of landscaped grounds within the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, four miles from Swindon and half an hour's drive from the Cotswolds.

The Cotswold market town of Cirencester -- where you'll find "handsome streets of golden stone that are generously punctuated by green spaces", according to The Daily Telegraph -- is 30 minutes away by car. It has a selection of boutique shops, cafés and restaurants.

The Georgian city of Bath, and Stonehenge, are both an hour's drive away, while Highclere Castle, a country house in Jacobethan style set in parkland designed by Capability Brown -- and the filming location of "Downton Abbey" -- is a 35-minute drive away.

Avebury Stone Circle, a Neolithic henge monument containing three stone circles, is less than 20 minutes' drive away

The 260-acre Lydiard Park is also 20 minutes' drive from the hotel. Lydiard House -- a striking Grade I-listed Palladian house -- is the beating heart of the park and is open Wednesday-Sunday from 11am-4pm.

Cotswold Water Park, an area of 40 square miles with more than 150 lakes that is ideal for walking, cycling, angling and a variety of watersports, is 25 minutes' drive away.

The spa and relaxing time we had
Other Comments
Unfortunately there was a gas leak and this resulted in no heating and a rather unorganised breakfast. The staff done their best and our stay was still enjoyable.

The hotel experienced problems with television system so only had 3 channels Sky Sport, Sky news & BBC1. Rooms quite basic. Pillows uncomfortable.

Other Comments
Really a hotel geared up for corporate clients and corporate events. Incorrect information given at reception about written information on eating in the hotel being available in the room. Restricted tv availability in the room, a written explanation was provided but this was wrong. The buffet breakfast items were tepid.

Although the hotel is on the out skirts of Swindon if your looking for a peacful time it's top draw. It's within easy reach of the outlet village. The beautiful city of Bath is around 40mins drive away Or alternatively drive to Swindon station and get on the train £11.30 day return

The hotel room is lacking of an ambience. Feels like an office. Should improve the details of each room.
