Pleasant enough stay!

Stayed at the Bear Hotel over 3 nights February 2020 We understand the Bear Hotel is awaiting to be refurbished, we had a pleasant enough stay, it was not expensive. Although room needs updating, it was clean and we had everything we needed for our stay. Michelle the manageress was lovely really helpful, nothing too much trouble, flexible about check in as we arrived early. We would stay again.

Barely a Hotel

The Bear Hotel is Barely a hotel. Cold, dirty, and poor conditioned room. Peeling wallpaper, dirty carpet, poorly cleaned bathroom. Smelled bad, like wet dog.

The hotel isn’t great but as it is a lower price than other accommodation in Chippenham can’t complain too much. It is in a good location, however the property desperately needs tlc to improve. Appreciate this is also a pub, however we were advised at check in that this would close at midnight. Unfortunately we were kept awake until 2am by karaoke happening in the bar.
