An excellent stay at the bear hotel. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. Best steak We've eaten in ages, both enjoyed our meals extremely. Breakfast too was great. Staff were second to none.

We stayed here for 2 nights for a wedding and we were fortunate to be there for the Christmas lights to be switched as the "Bear" is in the heart of Devizes and excellently located for everything. The Caen Locks is very close too. The hotel is excellent with function rooms, bars, and the "Bear Grill" restaurant. We ate in... More

I use this hotel a lot and have spent a lot of money there in the last three years, in the bars, restaurant, bistro and function rooms. Thinking about it, hundreds of pounds at least. Tonight I went in for a drink with my wife, and the place was busy (there was an event on in the market square). Plastic... More

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
