I stayed here for 2 nights recently. The staff were friendly although but as said elsewhere not terribly . The room was tired, dark and depressing. V, V noisy with live music one night and jukebox the other and constant barking from a dog in the private quarters. I was right at the top of the building, not ideal with... More

We stayed at the Bear Hotel for one night in September. I had booked the four poster with jacuzzi room. If we were not literally checking in and going straight to a wedding I would have not stayed, but we had no time to look for anywhere else. The room was dark and depressing, cheap furnishing and bed linen. I... More

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

Bed lovely, bathroom not clean. The room was very nice and the bed and bedding lovely. 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!!!
