We stayed for two nights to attend a family wedding in the town. Thankfully we had booked a luxury room and enjoyed the space and the very nice super-king bed. However it was disappointing to find the room lacked basics such as pen and paper, tissues etc whilst boasting a trouser press. Other family members were not so lucky and... More

The Bear Hotel, Hungerford. Located at the north end of Hungerford and adjacent to the river, The Bear Hotel is an excellent place for exploring a lovely part of the countryside. Two very good walks east or west of Hungerford start right at the door and are well described in guides in reception. Both follow the Kennet and Avon Canal... More

The staff at this hotel are amazing. From the initial reservation by phone and email (Caroline), the warm welcome on arrival after a very long journey from the receptionist (Amanda), the bar staff at lunch and our waitress Hannah at dinner, all were professional, approachable, informative and had a sense of humour. The room (Room 4) was a spacious family... More

Just got back from attending a wedding in Hungerford. We accepted a recommendation from friends to stay at 'The Bear' for two nights. Our bedrooms were in the courtyard, which proved to be a huge mistake! Because of the hot weather, the courtyard was packed in the evening with diners and drinkers. One particularly rowdy table of eight (which was... More

We arrived late after being at the Chelsea Flower Show all day. The welcome was excellent, reception staff really warm friendly and helpful. Only one negative which was our room. It was very small, which would have been fine but the wardrobe was just a boarded off section in the corner of the room and very short so no where... More

My wife and I stayed overnight in a very comfortable and immaculately clean room overlooking the pretty chalk stream. From the very moment of our arrival, every member of staff we encountered, proved excellent ambassadors for the hotel. Particular mention should be made of the manager and his excellent restaurant help - Stacey. Nothing was too much for them and... More

The Bear is one of many throughout the country owned by Old English Inns. The standard of rooms, food and service is good without being exceptional but they are all really good value. The Bear is situated on the banks of the Kennet in a quiet street of the main drag and provided a restful and comfortable break.

The Bear. Cosy, small, great and ordinary. Very different thoughts I have about this place! I stayed there a night on a business trip. It looks like nothing special from the outside. The rooms are cosy, small, old fashioned and it is time for a renovation. However, the main buildings bar and restaurant has a certain charme. The barkeeper is... More
