We arrived here in August expecting to stay for 5 nights whilst visiting the south coast, after staying one night we decided to leave. We asked to be moved to another hotel. which old english inns very quickly and efficiently sorted out for us. Like past reviews the hotel needs a complete overhaul, the carpets everywhere are threadbare especially on... More

Stayed here whilst visiting our daughter on Hayling Island. The room was clean and quiet and the bed was very comfortable. Carpets and furnishings had seen better days but this was not a problem. Bathroom needed updating and shower control was so stiff I couldn't turn it on without help. Staff were friendly and very helpful and breakfasts were very... More

This is our third stay in recent years at this hotel and I have given it mixed reviews from good to terrible, this was a good stay. I must say from the outset, we stayed here because Havant does not offer a lot of choice and we needed to be local. We arrived with trepidation (see previous reviews), our welcome... More

We have stayed at the Bear Hotel on numerous occasions, the latest was last night. The Bear is an Olde Inn, NOT a modern building built to look like an Olde inn. It has original 'real' beams so don't go expecting it to be like a new building. The floor boards creak & the rooms are not symmetrical. The furniture... More

Stayed in The Bear hotel whilst attending a wedding on Hayling Island. A bit tricky to find the car park, but once we did plenty of parking available. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was a bit shabby but clean and tidy and suitable for our needs. The floor was very slanted which greatly amuse... More

Hubby and I stayed at the Bear Hotel last Friday night breaking our journey to Bishop's Waltham. We found the staff friendly and welcoming, our room was large and we even had TWO CHAIRS, something other places can take note of and a real bugbear of mine. Normally one of us sits on THE CHAIR and the other on the... More

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.
