Booked in by a charming... More

It was a cold mid week evening and I had had a very difficult day. Was pleased to drive up to the hotel, park and relax. Polite receptionist checked me in quickly. Went up to a warm room, not huge, but perfectly adequate for my needs. Went down for an evening meal and a drink. Food was very good and... More

Took Mother-in-law (92 years old) for lunch today and we want to say a huge thank you to the staff at The Bear. They took our booking efficiently, gave us a quiet table to avoid background noise, the food was tasty and the attention from the staff was impeccable.

We booked a table at the New Years Eve Ball with friends. We had a fabulous evening. Dinner was fabulous(hot and tasty), followed by great music, lots of dancing & plenty of party poppers. The staff were great and they even drove us home. Brilliant!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for just one night in December in room 9. Decent sized room with all the facilities we needed but there was a lot of damp on the walls, plug sockets that weren't secured into the wall properly and a shower with very poor water pressure. For a hotel that has a good reputation like... More

Was meeting up with friends and chose to stopover rather than a long drive home. My stay at the Bear was a pleasant experience, first impressions were good. Reception good with a nice welcome. Room was a good size with a large King size bed, 2 armchairs, flat screen tv and kettle with a choice of different teas and coffee,... More

Having just returned from a two night stay at The Bear I felt I needed to write a review to rave about the lovely room we stayed in. Often, in older hotels, the rooms have a great deal of period features at the expense of modern day facilities. The Bear has not done this, it has combined the best of... More

Really nice hotel right on the market square, very old with lots of character, clean and comfortable. The staff were lovely, especially the waiter in the bistro. Good breakfasts and we had an excellent meal in the bistro one evening. The duvet was strangely a little bit short and didn't cover shoulders and feet at the same time!

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.
