We enjoyed a delightful 2 night stay recently. Booked it through a Groupon deal based on a bed & breakfast basis. We stayed in room 30, which looked out over the market place. The room was compact but satisfactory for our needs. It did, however, have a generous sized en-suite which included a bath. My wife awarded it 10 out... More

We spent 2 nights here in February & we were quite satisfied with everything until we received a letter on our return home stating they had taken a payment from my card of £100 for smoking in the room, this money was returned to my account after I rang them to inform them that we had not smoked in the...

My partner and I have just returned from a short break in Devizes, where we stayed at the Bear Hotel. The hotel is a typical olde worlde hotel, full of character, old wooden beams, creaking floorboards, and charm. Its perfectly situatiated in the middle of the Market Place, ideal for walking around the old town of Devizes. The staff were... More

We chose this area as it was so convenient for visiting the Kennet and Avon Hotel. It is a very old hotel with a lot of character and charm. The staff were all very helpful and friendly- a credit to the hotel. The food was not cheap, but of excellent quality and presentation - an added bonus to our stay.... More

This hotel is in a great location in the centre of Devizes. We stayed for two nights in room 10. The room was clean with pleasant decor, although the bed and pillows weren't particularly comfortable. Good tea and coffee facilities with biscuits were provided. Our main gripe was that the shower water was not even tepid. We reported this after... More

Ideal place for a few days in Devizes, right in the centre of town and when the market is on it is just outside. The hotel itself is old, but with plenty of character (also apparently haunted!!) I was in the Cellar bar for St Patricks day, which was a lot better than I thought. The only reason why I... More

I met some friends for Sunday lunch. It is a really fantastic hotel which has retained all it's original charm. The food is amazing, roast dinners to die for! The service was great. The only down side was the very old, dated and untidy toilets, which are located towards the exit doors in a very cold part of the hotel.

My partner and I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and found it to be a perfect place for a short break. The situation was ideal as we could leave our car in the hotel car park and walk along the canal and around the town. Our room was at the front on the second floor, overlooking the market... More

I recently had a two night stay at the Bear Hotel with a friend. We were welcomed in very efficiently at Reception and had two single rooms on the second floor. Both were very clean, warm and had comfortable beds. We ate in the Bear Grills Bistro and the food was delicious, I understand that they have a new chef... More

We stayed as part of a great Groupon deal [£99 for nights B&B with chocs]. Despite being here on an offer, unlike some other reviewers, we were allocated a lovely room on the 1st floor , room 3, with a view of the Market Square. Huge comfy sleigh bed with " ye olde" style wooden furniture ,a clean and shiny... More
