The Goddard Arms is a friendly hotel located right in the heart of Swindon’s Old Town. The
Old Town itself, which includes our building and the surrounding areas are full of rich history.
The Goddard Arms is an old converted Coaching Inn where horse-drawn coaches used to
change horses en route to their next destination.
We are also right next door to the beautiful 50 acre Lawns Park which was once the estate of
the Goddard family and where the name of our hotel comes from.
There are easy links to the M4 and M5 plus the hotel is just a 15 minute walk from the
closest bus station and 30 minutes from Swindon train station.
We have 17 rooms which all come equipped with a hairdryer, TV, shampoo and tea/coffee
facilities. Most of our rooms also have a desk for those that need to do a bit of work (Wi-Fi
access included) and a bath so you can relax at the end of a long day. Rooms do vary slightly,
so be sure to give us a call on 01793 619090 for confirmation.
Breakfast is included in most of our room rates and we offer free parking to guests staying at
the hotel or visiting the pub. Keep in mind that we are limited on parking spaces, so be sure
to arrive promptly if you wish to park onsite.
So if you are looking for a home from home atmosphere, in a highly commended pub which
serves great food and is situated in the historic Old Town of Swindon, then we look forward
to welcoming you here at The Goddard Arms.
