I just stayed for a single night, and it wasn't myself that chose it, but reading the reviews I think they are being hard done to. Yes it could do with a make over, furniture and carpets are past their best, but the staff are excellent really coming across like they are trying. Feeling like they want you to be... More

after our dissapointing benidorm break we are so glad that we booked the bear for a 4 day chill out before returning to work.we requested room 21 and we got it,a room overlooking the road but not noisey and very quirky. breakfasts were of the usual standard and we were remembered by the manager and staff which is always nice.

I have had one disastrous stay at The Bear since my last Trip Advisor review. That second stay was a disaster. This time my room was clean and comfortable, but extremely hot and with a window that would not open far enough to admit much fresh air. The window was huge -taking up around 80% of the outer wall space,... More

We went on a cricket tour in Havant through an agency and they booked us this hotel. Car park was good enough but it was quite a task taking our heavy cricket bags to our room as there are a lot of stairs, we had three games so had quite a lot of trips up and down the various stairs... More

On arrival the reception staff seemed friendly enough and we were presented with our paperwork and room key - on the paper work it already looked as though we had been bumped from our original room to the cramped furnace we were...

My wife and I spent a three-night weekend at this hotel with two other couples. Car parking is excellent. The staff were great; very helpful and friendly. Our rooms were clean and the breakfasts were fine - a la carte and plenty of choice. We only had one evening meal here and that wasn't too successful as we ordered steaks... More

As you'll see in most other reviews here, this old building is really in need of work. Carpets are worn, decorating is all over the place and in the single rooms there is serious work needed in the bathrooms. But. I really like this place. It's inexpensive, well positioned and the breakfast is pretty decent. It's a shame they stopped... More
