Diana Lodge B And B
Ranked #20 of 31 Chippenham B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 July 2011

We spent the weekend duringt he Chippenham Festival, and found it was a short walk to all the venues. Diana (not her real name) was gracious, hospitable, and provided "extras" to make the stay enjoyable. For example, she packed up our left-over breakfast (which was more than ample) as sandwiches to take away for lunch.
The room was cozy and comfortable.
We hope to back during next season's festival, when I believe it is hard to find a booking anywhere in or near town during the the well-attended festival.

There was plenty of car parking available,The room my friend and my self stayed in was clean and tidy. We were welcomed by the owner, who gave us a selection of good resturants and pubs in walking distance for evening meals. As we were only staying for the one night this time we never had much time to view the town during the day. As we were leaving early in the morning, to go to the local race track for the vintage car auction.We asked for early breakfest, which was very good, and filled us until late lunch.
Next time i will stay there, but with my wife, for a longer time.

Stayed in this B&B for quite a long time. The service is good and clean,got to have a variety of English and Continental breakfast. The price is really cheap and you get a high quality service and nice and friendly environment to stay in.

After my wife putting a 'not so good' review, Diana wrang me at home.
Not to ask about our stay, or to apologise for the awful time we had, but to berate us for having the audacity to make any adverse comments on this site.
All I can say is this lady, who is no doubt a very caring person and appears to do her bit for charity, has so lost touch with the most important thing, her responsibility to her Guests.
She should either smarten her act up, or cease trading.
This is such a shame, as my son has just moved to Chippenham and we were looking for a place to stay on a regular basis, obviously it will not be there

Although the host was pleasant, the rooms (we had 3) were dirty poorly maintained and generally shabby. The decor left much to be desired and the carpets were dirty and stained. The bathroom was clean but decor was poor and had its own cobwebs (room 3) Room 2 was dirty dusty and needed a complete overhaul. Please don't even look at the radiators which have never been cleaned, and a child of 3 could probably tile and grout better. The milk, in the rooms, provided for tea and coffee was off and out of date. Room 1 (downstairs was dirty and dusty and in a generalyl poor state of decor, the bathroom was so dirty you could ( and we did) write your name on the wall tiles. All rooms have out of date feather pillows and hard worn out mattresses. The shower had mould growing inside and dont even ask to see the radiators and windows. As I have said the Host was polite. The breakfast was supposed to be a full English but fell well short of this consisting of a ssausage, two rashers of bacon and a small egg! hmm a full english I think not!! This could be turned into an e good accommodation if only it where clean and decorated, new windows etc. We would not be recommending this to anyone, and neither will we forget it in a hurry.

We stayed at Diana Lodge for the Chippenham Folk Festival, and received a very friendly welcome. Our double room was on the small side, but nicely decorated and very comfortable. Breakfasts provided were good, "full English", with plenty of cereals, fruit juice and toast as well.

The owner is genuinely approachable: if you need something, maybe more toast or towels, just ask.

This B and B is less than 10 minutes walk from the rail station, and similarly from many of the festival venues. Some of the festival events finished late, and so we returned late: no problem.

It is worth mentioning is that the riverside provides pleasant walking and birdwatching opportunities. The Folk Festival, of course, is outstanding.

the room was a nice size with a good en-suite. the bed was comfortable and good for the 2nights that i spent there. I would definately stay there again and recommend it for a friendly stay in the beautiful town of Chippenham and the villagessurrounding the town. the location i found was excellant as it was just down the road from the town centre and there was plenty of pubs for the entertainment side in the local proximity.
