Very cosy and welcoming place. Winter and arrived after dark in a cold, blustery, rainy, early evening. Fire on and nice to be greeted and checked in so cheerfully, quickly and efficiently. Dropped our bags in the room and down to the bar/lounge for a drink and relax before dinner. The hotel is an old coaching inn dating back to... More

From the very first booking enquiry, even though they got my name wrong, I felt that this was a hotel where people cared about customer service, and enjoyed working there. All the staff were unfailingly friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The New Year's Eve do was great, and the food (on almost a mass catering event) most enjoyable,... More

Visited with my daughter for an afternoon tea and we were very impressed! Scones are home made, lovely fresh sandwiches and a really nice selection of other cakes to go with the never ending tea. Very friendly service, they can not do enough for you. A cold and rainy Friday afternoon spent next to a warm cosy fire looking out... More

I visit for lunch a lot and occasionally for dinner. The food is consistently great, but the best thing is the service. ALL staff members are attentive, friendly and service orientated. Thanks guys...

I love Devizes; used to live there, writing a novel based there. On a research trip, catching up with old friends and sharing a birthday with one of them, we stayed at The Bear. Beautiful place with so much history, good taste, good vibe and mostly lovely service BUT our room was cold, so cold, I returned with a chill... More

Had a great stay here over the New Year 2015. I have lived in Devizes so I knew the reputation of the Bear Hotel was good, and I wanted to have the experience. It is a lovely hotel, very centrally located on the market square, and a meeting point for locals and businessmen alike. There are some great positives about... More

An excellent hotel. Right from arrival and check in. The staff shine here nothing is too much trouble and frequently there is no need to ask are they all mind readers? Our room was spacious with a comfy bed and a big bathroom with a nice large wardrobe. The party was in the beautiful ballroom there was plenty of space... More

Hotel in central part of Devizes. Didn't stay but popped in on an 'ale trail' Mostly if not exclusively Wadworth Ale which is not my favourite but the Swordfish was very nice. Atmosphere not brilliant as it's a hotel not pub but the bar at the front is okay and you don't mind being a little bit loud in there.
