    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.

    The place is a disgrace. It is under new management and they are advertising rooms at a lower price than yourse lves. We did not actually fulfil the booking so dismayed were we by the overall appearance of the place and how dirty it looked. There are no car parking facilities, no recognised reception, with attention being given by a bar person. If you are familiar with the phrase that something can make your skin crawl you will get an overall first impression which certainly does not encourage remaining in the building. They will of course have taken our money but my best advice to you would be to disassociate yourself from the place. I would like a refund but do not know how you would stand on the issue.
