Stayed here for 2 nights on a deal. The rooms are very tired as per the other reports and well overdue for refurbishment. Avoid room 34 it has the kitchen fans outside the window and although these go off at night they come on early in the morning. Having moved to the front of the hotel, the rooms there have... More

How I like TripAdvisor it allows the customer to voice there feelings over there experience in this usually hidden industry. I have stayed in many hotel's in the UK with my husband. Some very good some very bad indeed. I have one review already posted regarding a bed and breakfast in Hounslow and that fell into the very bad indeed... More

I stayed at the Bear Hotel for 12 days, it was a great stay room clean and tidy, breakfast included in price, beyond words the variety in hot and cold food available. Hotel has tons of character and coming from Canada enjoyed the old English charm the hotel provided. The restaurant dinners where great wonderful selection for different tastes. The... More

Room was average but spacious which was good as we had our dog with us. Lots of stairs to get to room. In general the staff are friendly the place is run down and slightly grubby... More

This is in a very old building in the middle of Havant. Extremely good value for money, as are all Olde English Inns. We stayed two nights, a Monday and Tuesday. The room was nice and clean and the beds comfortable. In such an old building you can't expect everything to be perfect, especially at this price. Good supplies of... More

Room was grubby, smelled of cigarettes, industrial fan outside window and loud hot water pipe related noises throughout the night. Hotel staff that I met were nice and had the decency to take some money off the bill for the fag smell. Breakfast was quite good and bar and dining room much better presented than the rooms. I won't be... More

Stay at the Bear Hotel, I have never in my life stayed at such a disgusting place, sadly in need of a redecoration, new management staff, told I could either finish my drink in my room or outside at 23:30, but I would not be stopping in the Lounge as it was being lock up for the night, one question...
