Diana Lodge B And B
Ranked #20 of 31 Chippenham B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 June 2010

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.

I stayed at the Diana Lodge B+B for several months while working locally and I don't recognise at all the previous review. The rooms in the B+B are always kept scrupulously clean and the owner, Diana, is cheerful, friendly, and hard-working. I stayed in three different rooms and all were fine. As I recall, the windows are double-glazed, so external noise is minimal. I would have no hesitation in staying there again and recommend it for a friendly stay in the beautiful town of Chippenham and the Wiltshire villages around it.

I've just had the misfortune of spending 2 nights in this horrible place and thought i'd do my bit to stop others from being sujected to the same experience.

As this was booked over the phone by someone on my behalf I decided to ask to see the room before checking in. which i didn't think was an unusual request. This was apparently the first time Diana had ever been asked this and resulted in her barring my way and shouting at me, when we did finally get to see the clean but dated room we were then told by the lovely Diana that she 'didn't appreciate people poking around her home'. I have rarely met a ruder person and can only presume this is the wrong line of work for her. The only reason we stayed was because my parents had already checked in and paid, although I must admit it was a close call. Thankfully Diana managed to bite her tounge for the rest of our stay but needless to say i didn't find her in the slightest endearing.

Other highlights were the location (on a roundabout beside a social club) and the facilities (we had a 1960's bathroom with no shower and twin beds when we'd booked a double). On top of this the lights in my parents room didn't work and they were kept awake by drunken shouts from the social club next door.

You might think it couldn't get any worse - and other than a bland and boring breakfast made with cheap ingredients served in a very cramped breakfast room it didn't for us. However the poor guests who's room was accessed directly through the breakfast room might have had more to add as we accidently woke them up at 7.30 today by talking quietly!

The name of the game was clearly to squash as many rentable rooms in the house as possible with little thought to comfort or the possibily of repeat business. needless to say i wont be going back!

Diana Lodge B&B Grathie Cottageis a late 19th century property with all modern facilities expected in the 21st century of affordable guest accommodation.This reflected in the AA 3 Diamonds awarded by the AA since Diana took over the running of the, property in 2004 and Diana Lodge continues to maintain the standards set and reviewed anually by the AA. Diana Lodge's rates and standards are competitive with other B&Bs in the area , and a warm welcome is given to both first time guests as well as all those who return time and time again for business , pleasure, or family events in our beautiful part of the country, Diana Lodge is conveniently located for not only the rail way station, but also the m4 j17 and the town centre where many of our churches can be found, as well as for the venues for the anual Folk Festival in May when festival goers return to stay at Diana Lodge. There are many restaurants and pubs within waliking distance of Diana Lodge. There are the many friends who keep in touch with Diana Lodge who started off as guests enjoying a good breakfast in the mornings before going to work or visiting and family or friends, before coming back to a clean comfortable bed, and room and the warm hospitality that Diana prides her self on and is extended to all.
