Likes:
The weather was not good but we managed to find things to do, Wareham Wednesday was good, the band were good and the fireworks were fantastic. The food in the hotel was also very good.
Dislikes:
The only downside was the hotel does not have parking so I had to keep moving the car or paying for car parks,although you could park between 7pm and 10am in Sainsburys car park and one across the rd.

Response from Black Bear Hotel:
I do not like to put back a bad response but in this instance i feel we have to, the room the lady stayed in was in the back of the building on the first floor making it impossible to throw "barrels"excuse me "barrels" i have never tried throwing barrels but I do not think this is possible. On a finer point our housekeeper informed us that the room was left in a state of wreck, an ornament had been broken, the sheets had been left a bit to be desired. Apologies for the water pressure.

"Handy location but poor quality overall."
Poor quality bedding. Noisy room with boiler constantly kicking in all night. Couldn't have a proper shower as the ceiling was too low and the shower head only reached my chest. Not a power shower or even mixer taps therefore very difficult to regulate temperature. Read less

Good quality towels and friendly staff!
Dislikes:

Response from Black Bear Hotel:
Hi we are very sorry to hear about your problems during your stay with us, we do use a well known company for our laundry but we ourselves are not happy with their service and we are in discussions with other companies at present. unfortunately it is an old building and unfortunately sometimes on the top floor the pressure can be a bit low.
Many thanks

I did not have breakfast - used the room only for sleeping - which was made difficult by the noise.

Likes:
Lovely area - nice countryside around
Dislikes:
Did not see any staff after booking in which was confused- I had booked for 4 nights - they only had 3 recorded - but would have overcome that if requested. Shower room needed upgrading and modernisin

Likes:
The location. This hotel is right down town and you could walk you everything in Wareham from here.
Dislikes:
Only problem I found was parking. The hotel itself does not have a parking lot, so you have to make use of public parking areas.
