Culmination of a birthday mystery trip. No disappointment at the Bear. Upgraded room, nice surprise, which was warm, clean and comfortable. Dinner was excellent, the menu suiting us very well as did breakfast. All the staff we met were helpful and friendly especially one waitress on her gapyear (good luck whoever you are) All in all a very pleasant experience... More

I visited the hotel for a school reunion and stayed for B and B. The room was OK for the money. The receptionists (over the phone and face-to-face) were not exactly accommodating. I had had a 4 hour car journey and had enquired beforehand whether there would be anywhere for me to wash and change. I was told no.The main... More

Thank you for you recent review on tripadvisor. I’m sorry to hear that your stay was not brilliant on this occasion. All bedrooms are guaranteed from 2pm on the day of arrival for all guests. This is to ensure that there is sufficient servicing time between departures and arrivals. I can only apologise that due to the level of occupancy,... More

Beautiful hotel in the heart of the scenic Cotswolds. Perfect landing spot from which to tour nearby villages Cirencester, Cheltenham, Bourton-on-the-Water and Broadway. It's the quintessential inn and tavern of the American imagination--coming upon this hotel in a clearing at the top of a hill, we could almost pretend we were weary 1700s travelers setting up at an inn for...

Thank you very much indeed for your review. It is always encouraging for the staff to hear such positive comments about their service and how accommodating they can be. I am pleased to say that due to recent feedback we have now changed our local meat suppliers. Our steaks are once again the most popular dish on the menu, which... More

The hotel is lovely with lots of character and charming little rooms. it is close to the Rodbourgh common which was good for a little walk. We stayed on a package with 3 course... More

We recently took our trip to England that we have planned for a long time. Our first place to stay was The Bear and it was a great start to our trip. I am always impressed with a staff that works so well together and makes a stay so comfortable. Breakfast was always fast and delicious and the staff courteous... More

Visited The Bear recently for a family wedding, and was quite disappointed with it as a venue. Firstly, it does not have any disabled access to it, unless you go through the reception area & only use the main restaurant. One family member is disabled & despite being told staff would be on hand to assist, they weren't! Nothing was... More

Highly Recommend it, dog friendly too so it's perfect after a walk on rodbourough common! Lovely fireplace to keep you warm too, often a wedding Venue in the summer too - so that demonstrates how beautiful it... More

My Daughter had her wedding here. Lovely venue for a wedding. Rooms were really nice, clean and well decorated not matter which room you were in, but being a listed building it is not very "disabled friendly" as there are steps everywhere. I struggled all day to get my Mother around the place as she uses walking sticks. This was... More

To us, the Bear at Rodborough is fairly local, but not a place we have visited for years. Attending a wedding reception there on Friday showed us what we had been missing. An absolutely charming venue - perfect for the occasion.Beautifully presented in all respects. Friendly helpful staff, fabulous food and splendid evening buffet . Many guests stayed overnight and...
