Stayed here for one night with some friends. We had the room in the attic where everything slopes. The building is VERY old - so this is more than acceptable. Breakfast was hugh and plentiful. All freshly cooked. The hottest eggs I've had ever. The staff are delightful. Our room and bathroom were very clean, the bed too soft for... More

We drove into Devizes on the advice of some locals in Wells. We were on our way back to London. What great advice! The town was lovely. We could not get into the first hotel we tried but they recommended the Bear. It was great. A lovely old building, good service and great atmosphere. The included breakfast was superb with... More

The Bear not only has bags of character it puts some 4 and 5 star hotels to shame in a number of respects. For example, if you want breakfast in the room you don't have to decide the night before; you don't have to hang a card on the door. As with the most civilised hotels, you simply ring down... More

The Bear Hotel is a very old building with heaps of atmosphere situated in the histroric town of Devizes. I believe it dates back to the days of the English Civil War! Indeed, Roundway Down where the battle took place is not that far away. The ambience within the Bear is particulary restful and the staff always very polite and... More

We only stayed for one night and booked last minute. There was an error on the booking website, however, the hotel staff handled everything very professionally and were extremely helpful. The room, food at the bistro and breakfast were excellent. The location is lovely, would definitely stay again.

Booked an executive single room - the bed was fine but the room was so small cramped barely enough room for suitcase on floor which had to step over to get out. The noise from the kitchen was very load until gone 12. Irritating as hot night had to have window open. Bar staff seemed to be a bit disorganised,... More

Stayed 1 night to attend a family party in the area. We arrived at lunch time so had a nice lunch in the bar, lots of people coming and going, having lunch or a coffee after shopping, in a nice relaxed atmosphere. There was a function in the ballroom in the evening but that was all finished by the time... More

The Bear is a beautiful hotel, set in the historic market square of Devizes that offers superb facilities and excellent customer service. I would certainly not hesitate in recommending The Bear to others.

We visited the hotel as part of a Ruby wedding celebration in the ballroom. Our room was very close to the ballroom & the lift which was good for us as my husband finds stairs difficult. however it was the only lift so we had to go outside to get to get to the breakfast lounge. Our room had disabled... More

The second room was a twin but had an en-suite... More
