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

I was visiting for some local events. The hotel itself is very old, and it shows, but thats not bad. It really adds to the history of the building and the town. I stayed in as single room and had no problems with it. The staff was friendly and helped me out when needed. Read less
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.

"Awful"
This is a tired hotel with poor facilities and a worn out feeling. A couple of oints of Butcombe Gold in a nearby pub softend the disappointment - a little but we will not rush back here. At the price we paid, this was poor value for money or a rip off - depending on how you might see it. Awful Read less
Likes:
That's a struggle - sorry
Dislikes:
Less of a struggle, see above
Response from Black Bear Hotel:
we are very sorry this guest wasn't happy with our establishment,as it is a 17th century building it is bound to be a little worn but we have spent time and money trying to make it as clean and cheerful as possible without ruining the character,our facilities are the usual en-suiete toiletshower /bath, telly, tea/coffee making facilities etc bar, restaurant, pool room beer garden granted we are not the "Ritz" and our prices reflect that. our sincere appologies again for the dissappointment felt

Likes:
Cheap and cheerful. Staff were very helpful and friendly. No issues about time spent in the room.
Dislikes:
Noisy until 2am so no restful sleep, we had to be up early! Little hot water in the room. Online booking gave breakfast a set price but at checkout were charged more.No parking so had to pay.
Response from Black Bear Hotel:
appologies to our guests for a noise issue,we try to address this as best we can but unfortunately friday/sat are our busy evenings and people do chat in the garden sometimes. the hot water can take a minute or so to filter through as it is an old building.breakfast is a set price online but we also do room only and of course breakfast then has to be paid extra if requested in the morning. parking is free in pay and display 7pm to 10am 1 minute away. appologies for any disappointment

Response from Black Bear Hotel:
sorry this guest was dissapointed with our establishment,we have been refurbing/decorating as quickly as we can. we are a 17th century coaching inn and the single room size which we only have 2 of are in keeping with rooms of this type of building.it will never be a modern style as this would spoil the character and would be impossible to acheive.again appologies for the dissapointment felt as our aim is to please our guests if we can.
