This is a great place to stay right in the heart of Chippenham. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and there's a very relaxed, friendly atmosphere. There's no breakfast but there are plenty of places to eat nearby. Excellent value for money.

A shame I had to put one star on the rating. I stayed here with a friend early May. The reception area is a bar filled with loud music and drunk locals. The stairs have not been vacuumed in a long time. The room was utterly filthy and the bathroom full of hair with urine stains on the toilet seat.... More

Didnt stay in the rooms, just visited the place again, see if its improved. Not atall, New landlords would definatly be advantageous to this business. Also the Building itself needs looking after by somebody that can put some money in to it. It has pride of position right at the top of the high street looking over the town. Chippenham... More

A lovely hotel if a bit extra time was spent cleaning and for visitor needs (like tv and soap in the shower soap holder). The landlord waited for me to arrive to show me to my room and was very friendly and kind. The... More

If you want to stay in a Hotel where they don't make the bed or clean the room for the whole week and when leaving the room you find the owners dog has relieved its bowels 3 times along the corridor, then this is the place for you!!!

I often use the Bear Hotel to socialise in the bar area and stay the evening in one of there newly decorated spacious on suit bedrooms. The bar area is welcoming and friendly. The staff are down to earth and fun. Great selection of drinks, pool table and jukebox. Nice seating area out back for the warmer days. The hotel... More
