The proprietor very kindly provided accommodation, evening meal, and breakfast to myself and support crew whilst I conducted a personal challenge in aid of Help for Heroes. During our stay we found the hotel staff were very polite and very accommodating. The food on offer was second to none and greratly appreciated by 3 hungry males. We left prior to... More

I was very intrigued with this hotel as I pass it most days when working and to stay for a night for a friends birthday was a good choice. The staff were very friendly and courteous, from check in to breakfast, and the whole hotel was exactly what I was expecting. An old fashion appeal with wooden beams and large... More

Great service should be reason enough to stay anywhere and the staff at the Bear are first class, nothing is a problem and everything was done quickly and courteously. However, the hotel is looking tired. The single room was like an old fashioned club room with a cupboard as a bathroom and a short bed, tea tray and hot radiator,... More

Four of us booked for Sunday lunch in the main dinning room. Arriving at midday we were ushered straight in, and welcomed by two charming young ladies. A variety of dishes were on offer, as per usual on Sundays in pubs and hotels. The food was excellent, well presented, tasty and ample. We all had smoked trout salad to start.... More

We treated ourselves to an overnight stay in Devizes for our anniversary. We had a superior room which overlooked the market place and was very spacious and comfortable. The food was excellent and about the price you would expect. Staff were very friendly and helpful. It's an old building so don't expect contemporary furnishings as it is all in keeping... More

We like the old fashioned look of the place inside and out. The bar is like something out of the sixties and the rest of the place is very cosy and homely. Good food especially the breakfast. Very friendly staff and plenty of them, the service in the bar was particularly good. If you want to be served quickly you... More

The Bear is a nice old coaching inn with plenty of character, but it would seem that all the double beds are "standard" 4'6" size....ours certainly was and we were told by reception that "they were all the same size". On the basis that a hotel's primary role is to offer a good night's sleep, The Bear doesn't score well... More

Stayed here for one night with my daughter prior to a competition. Food was delicious and the portions were large - had dinner and breakfast here. The staff were pleasant and more than helpful indeed; our twin room and bathroom was clean, beds comfortable and cosy. My daughter and I loved the old fashioned charm and feel of the hotel... More

My husband proposed while we were staying at this hotel a few years ago, so it was top of our list for an Anniversary break. When we arrived we were met by surley staff, we could not be served afternoon tea as we had not prebooked , we could order sandwiches and cake separately from the lunch menu, this was... More
