After having booked this hotel, we got to know that some of our friends living in Wiltshire, had chosen this venue for their wedding, which raised our anticipation of staying there. This charming hotel perfectly situated overlooking the main square in Devizes, and has a warmth and cosiness, that we have come to associate with this idyllic part of England.... More

We were very lucky to stay at the Bear, as we didn't book. They found us a room which was perfect as was our night sleep. We ate in the hotel's Bears Grill, food excellent,also breakfast with lots of choice. I had fresh fruit with natural yoghurt, then smoked haddock. My husband had full English which looked great and was... More

We met friends for a meal in The Bear restaurant. They were resident, we were their guests. The service was excellent and the starter equally so. However, all the mains left a great deal to be desired. I ordered lamb chop, medium rare. It was tough and somewhere between medium and well done. I asked for some was mint sauce... More

We visited as a family of four (adults). We booked quite late and on a weekend when they had wedding guests staying, so double rooms weren't available. We booked two twin rooms instead, which were small (particularly one of them - room 11) but well appointed. My boyfriend and myself stayed in the disabled access bedroom (room 16) and thought...

We have for the past 14 years gone to the Bear for our Saturday morning treat for coffee and it was lovely, but Oh dear they have installed a newfangled machine where as before it was perked and in a jug and I could have what strength I preferred now it is strong and bitter. Cream is very often 'off'... More

Myself and five friends stayed at the Bear over a weekend. We thought the food was excellent and the steaks to die for and not forgetting the apple strudel! Our only complaints was the noise outside the hotel on the weekend and one of our party had a really small twin room. Our room was very good Number4. Overall, I... More

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
