Our overall experience of this hotel was great, the staff were all very friendly, the hotel was clean with very beautiful traditional features. The only problem we encountered was that the mattress was like sleeping on a bale of hay, the flat sheet didn't fit the bed properly therefore every time you moved you ended up sleeping on the very...

We stayed overnight at the Bear Hotel in Devizes and booked a family room - which was just as well because the double bed was tiny and very short. I am not a giant at 5'6" and my feet were almost at the end of the bed. My husband who is 6'3" had to sleep in the single bed -... More

Spent another night at the Bear following quite a few in the past. Whilst the Bear are consistently making changes they are maintaining the quality in particular cleanliness in bedrooms and en suites. Service and friendliness of staff is refreshingly good. Just wish they would reinstate the table cloths in the restaurant and benefit from this point of difference. Even... More

Just spent two nights at The Bear on a deal from KGB. Overall we came away feeling disappointed and treated like the poor relatives. We were in a small room in the attic (room 32) although it was clean. A complimentary bottle of wine was also part of the deal but it was cheap, out of date and off, we... More

We had never visited The Bear before and had been treated to afternoon tea by some friends. The service by the staff especially the manager was exceptional, they made you feel valued, important and cared for you very much, nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was beautiful, nicely presented and prepared with so much care and attention.... More

Did not stay but took friends out for a thank-you evening meal. It was a good choice and we enjoyed a simple but pleasant meal. We ate in the traditional bar and it proved a good choice. Easy to find and park. Pleasant efficient staff.

We stayed for a couple of nights, arriving early we were showed straight up to our room (22) with a great view of the market square. Charlie helped us up with our luggage without being asked. It was a large room, light and airy and well furnished. The shower was powerful in a good sized en-suite. There was a good... More

Stayed here with my husband for 2 nights on a Wowcher deal, we do these trips often as we love walking. This is one of the few places we would have been happy to pay the full price. We had a double room with a beautiful bathroom which had a lovely deep bath (great after a long walk) as well... More

We stayed on a two night deal with KGB in mid July,as others have said it is a very old building 17th century,with lots of character,sloping floors and odd angles here and there. Our room was quite spacious and well appointed,number 14 I believe,but after the first night we asked if we could change rooms due to the noise from... More
