Chippenham Golf Club

The Club, founded in 1896, has gone through many changes in its history. Today, the undulating parkland course offers golfers a fine test without being 'heavy' on yardage. The course are very proud of our course maintenance, particularly the greens which have been recently described as among the best in Wiltshire by the Wiltshire County Secretary. You will find narrow fairways with small well bunkered greens. The five par three holes are quite testing, with the 5th, 10th and 13th being the trickiest.

Potential with some tlc

The building is lovely from the outside and the public areas were nice enough. Reception staff were very helpful. Our room wasn't ready so we agreed to take another room in the main building. We were ... more

Dear LW64, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. You state in your review that management needs to care a little more, I sincerely apologise that that was the impression you left the hotel with, I can assure you that myself and all the other members of the hotel management team care deeply about the property and our guests. With regards to the issue you highlighted with one of the ladies showers in our leisure facilities, you state that it was a terrible waste which I completely and wholeheartedly agree with you, however we were left with only two options prior to the arrival of a qualified plumber. 1 - shut the water off to the leisure club and all bedrooms situated in that section of the property or 2 - leave it running. Neither option were optimal, however the decision was made to negatively impact the fewest number of guests and minimalize complaints by leaving the one shower running. An emergency plumber was called out, however as they were unfamiliar with the property and the complex plumbing set up the building employs they were not prepared to under take the work, and thus we had to rely on our contracted plumber to attend the property and rectify. I am pleased to report the fault has since been corrected. I hope this goes someway to change your opinion of the hotel's management and shows you that we do indeed care. All of our guest's reviews and comments are shared with the team in the expectation that changes can be implemented. Thank you once again for taking the time to supply your feedback. I hope we can welcome you back again in the near future. Kind Regards, James

Dear martinsnest, Thank you for your review and the comments about your stay. I'm pleased to read that overall you found the experience to be positive. With regards to your 'niggles', the issue with the shower has been rectified, it was an on-going issue which require major works to be carried out hence the week or so delay in repair, as I say this has now been repaired. I'm sorry that you found the piped music to be an annoyance, it is intended to add atmosphere but I have instructed the team to refresh the playlist to avoid comments of this nature in the future. Once again thank you for your feedback, I hope we can welcome you back again in the future. Kind Regards, James

I hope the small issue you have alluded to was reported to the team at the hotel and rectified swiftly.
