We had a lovely experience at this country hotel. Charming staff, clean and comfortable rooms with classic decor. Delicious generous breakfast. We were staying to go to a nearby wedding and the hotel was very accommodating and easy to access late at night as we had a back door key.

I've known this hotel all my life, but this was the first time of staying here, its 500 years old so you should what to expect. We had a great room adjacent to the town square, getting there on a wednesday meant that the market (which does start assembling at 4.30am) was in full swing a great spectacle from our... More

I often use the hotel for business meetings and interviews, and do so up to ten times a year. Sometimes I may just be sat in the bar area and other times I hire a room depending on my needs. It is an old hotel, not unlike many you can find in market towns across the UK and has limited... More

In the town centre (opposite the car park that becomes the town's market on a Thursday) stands The Bear Hotel. Once a Coaching Inn it still retains its old world charm. After a long day visiting nearby Avebury and the surrounding archaeological treasures we checked in and headed up an old wooden circular staircase, along passage ways with different floor... More

Me and my parents decided to stay at The Bear due to an online offer giving a significant discount. The hotel room was spacious, beds were comfortable, the bathroom was very clean and again large. The dining area was large and a full English breakfast was available. Also on site were a restaurant and two bar areas. The staff were... More

Stayed at The Bear in June via a groupon deal. Very pleased with our room and the staff were all very polite and helpful. The breakfast was ideal. The hotel location in the centre of the town was great and having the on site parking was really good. We would stay at this hotel again as every thing about our... More

I have stayed at The Bear regularly over the past two years. The Reception staff are all helpful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is great, the waitresses are very efficient and kind; they help to get the day off to a good start. Dinner in the Bistro or Bar area is good and staff are happy to... More
