About the hotel
The Old Bear Inn is a friendly local pub conveniently located in delightful Cricklade, the first town on the Thames and close to all the local amenities that the Cotswolds and Swindon have to offer. The accommodation is located in a converted barn. For breakfast, you can have a traditional English, continental or vegetarian breakfast upon request.
All breakfasts come with handcrafted artisan bread. The car park is located at the rear of the pub. There is also a courtyard where you will be able sit and enjoy the weather during the summer months. Cricklade is a small historic 9th century Saxon town, lying just outside the Cotswolds 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty', and is the only Wiltshire town situated on the banks of the River Thames. Cricklade is surrounded by lovely countryside and is ideal for walking, riding and cycling. At the north of the town is North Meadow, now a National Nature Reserve, and home to the rare 'Snakeshead Fritillary' which flower in April. The town is at the southern gateway to the Cotswold Water Park which offers activities including sailing, water/jet skiing, fishing and bird watching.

Basic accommodation in need of renovation
Booked short notice on late rooms.
Car park to the rear of the pub was ideal but on arrival the landlord advised that the room only had a sink and mirror and that there was a shared bathroom with 2 other rooms. The bed was comfortable but the carpet and room was not very clean and the bathroom was dirty. The landlord did mention that the rooms would be renovated later in the year and converted into en-suites. The pub itself was quite nice and the staff very welcoming. Maybe wait until the rooms have been renovated.
Nice pub with rooms to rear
The rooms appear to be converted stables or out houses, the rooms are to a reasonable standard especially for the price of the rooms.
The only downside is that room 5 (my room) looked directly into the rear court-yard and the other clientel talking and socialising was very off putting as every thing could be heard very clearly through the old single pane windows.
