The building, breakfast, setting and views are brilliant. The breakfast was one of the best we have had. However, and this is a big one, I managed a mere two hours sleep due to noise. There is a low pitched hum coupled with a high pitched whine that not only filled our room but the corridors too. My guess is... More

The Bear is in a fantastic location, within walking distance of three commons. Which is great if you have 2 energetic dogs like us. I suspect the manager is very good since all of the staff are friendly and efficient. That doesn't happen by chance. The breakfast was excellent and the (double) bed was one of the biggest I've seen.... More

Stayed for 3 nights in July in in superior double room which was lovely and comfortable with good views of countryside. The room was large, clean, quiet with good bathroom. The hotel is very old and full of character with many small quirky day rooms around small courtyards. There is plenty of outside space to enjoy and tables outside looking... More

The room was beautiful, a big big bed, tea and coffee facilities. A really lovely two night stay. Afternoon tea was served as part of the package on both days by... More

We liked this as we could come and go as we pleased. Room was very comfortable and had everything we needed- hairdryer, toiletries, kettle etc. we really liked the... More

Just a one-night stay while we were seeing Gifford's Circus on Minchinhampton Common. The Common lies high above Nailsworth and the surrounding area and the Bear has good views from the bedrooms. We were very pleasantly and smoothly checked in and two older members of our group were taken to their rooms and bags carried. Afternoon tea by the croquet... More

Spent two nights here - had a really lovely time!! The grounds are stunning, and the rooms are beautifully decorated. Delicious breakfast! Had dinner here twice as well and was equally impressed by the quality of foods. Would definitely come back here again.

My friend got married here and I was best man. They seemed well organised and were extremely helpful when it came to setting up a projector and board for my speech. The food was excellent and the rooms were lovely. However because my room was on a corner on the top floor the celing was very low and curved, because... More
