Wonderful Wiltshire on your doorstep.

The Best Western Blunsdon House Hotel in Swindon is set in 30 acres of beautiful Wiltshire countryside, overlooking the Vale of Cricklade with views of the Cotswolds. An ideal place to stay in Swindon, you'll be surrounded by picture postcard villages and ancient landmarks - not to mention the excellent shopping facilities of the town itself.

With its great location, the Best Western Blunsdon House Hotel is famously welcoming and has been owned and run by the Clifford family for over 50 years, who celebrated their Golden Jubilee in 2010. With the M4 Corridor just one mile away, the Swindon hotel is convenient for London (80 miles), Bristol (40 miles) and Birmingham (85 miles) - so you'll never be far from things to see and do.

Take a walk along the Ridgeway, near Swindon and enjoy breathtaking views across the Marlborough Downs. In the fantastic surrounding countryside, you'll find huge images carved into hills (like the famous White Horse of Uffington) and monuments that pre-date recorded history at Avebury and Silbury Hill.

More practically, you can enjoy a bargain in the Swindon Designer Outlet Village and Brunel Shopping Centre. Close to the hotel itself at the Blunsdon Abbey stadium, you can find motorcycle speedway racing, featuring the Swindon Robins.

The Best Western Blunsdon House Hotel Swindon has fabulous rooms available for conference hire and is one of the most sought-after wedding venues in Swindon. This hotel - plus all that surrounds it - is a real hidden gem.

Dear Wiltslady2016, Thank you for reviewing us here at TripAdvisor. We were glad to read that you found the hotel in general to be lovely. It was disappointing to note that you did not thoroughly enjoy your party night with us. They are exceptionally popular but demand does vary according to day of week and the proximity of a date to Christmas. Skywalker's disco is normally very well received by our customers and we are sure that you will appreciate that personal music taste is subjective, nevertheless we will pass your feedback on to them. We hope that you had an enjoyable festive period and would like to take the opportunity to wish you all the best for the year.
