I stayed at the Bear hotel in July as I was working in Havant. I found the hotel very basic, but it wasn't expensive. It was the staff I felt sorry for, they worked like troopers, the guy who booked me in was on breakfast the next morning, serving the food in the evening. I can't fault the staff, but... More

Stayed here for two nights over last weekend. When booking on line said it was a special time as daughter getting married and one night she was to share with me the next with her husband. We were told where our room was so off we went only to find a room suitable for one person as no space around... More

This was my second visit this year and although I vowed never to return after my last visit, I had no alternative as it was last minute. This time I booked a double room and when we arrived I was amazed at the size of the bed, which was extremely comfortable. The room size was generous and had plenty of... More

My wife and I booked this hotel online from oldenglishinns.co.uk for 27th September to 1st Oct (4 nights in total) as it looked as if it would have character and atmosphere. We booked a 3 bed family room as the website said there was a child's sofa bed. We thought a sofa would be useful so that we could sit... More

The Bear is what it is - A base close to the surrounding areas you may be travelling for a cheap price. Personally I was travelling to Portsmouth to watch a football game and chose to stay here as it was cheap. The decor downstairs was fine and the bar/eating area were pleasant. The food was very tasty and I... More

If you want shiny and soulless, don't stay at the Bear, but if you want to be close to the town centre and have a really good breakfast, and if you like quirky spaces with a bit of shabby chic, then do as we did and have a lovely time.

The room was dated. The bathroom was terrible and could do with a complete refurb. It was overpriced for what it is. Breakfast was a shambles. No tables, everywhere was dirty with plates. The help yourself breakfast area wasn't stocked and we had to wait for glasses and juice. The cups had chips in. They were definitely short staffed. On... More
