taking our own luggage upstairs and down - there is no lift - was of course a little difficult as we aren't as young as we once were. My husband managed to get us a room on the first floor, which compensated slightly for this. The room was large and clean ad the bathroom was good with shower over the... More

Hotel very nice with on site parking. Check in great and room spacious with the up and down floors that you would expect in a hotel of this age. Bed very comfortable and bathroom had everything needed. Had to keep windows shut as noise from road and people outside would have kept me awake. Would stay again if in the... More

Its a bit unfair to rate The Bear on the pies alone, but they really are good. However. so are the rooms, the rest of the food and the staff. The hotel is a lovely, very old and creaky building which makes you feel instantly at home. The location is ideal. Parking is limited although there are public parking options... More

The bear provided a very good one-night stop over on the way to a wedding. The room was comfortable and quiet, the staff were very pleasant and helpful and the hotel had a warm character and appears to be a popular meeting and eating place in the town. Decent parking behind the hotel was a bonus.

Enjoyed first class Sunday lunch in The Grill.....plentiful portions, well cooked and presented, served by professional waiter. A real treat. Highly recommend. Pleasant atmosphere, decent space between tables, no sense of rush. A good, all round experience.

The Bear Hotel provided a comfortable stay and a hearty breakfast. The bar and restaurant is very pleasant with friendly staff. Our standard room was comfortable but in need of a few touch-ups in places (but nothing of great concern). The location is very convenient. One gripe is that on parking. We called the hotel the day before our stay... More

Last Aprial my wife and I visited this establishment for a birthday (mine) meal which was very good and for which I submitted a review. As a result of this experience I arranged to meet up with three pals that I was in the scouts with some 60 years ago. We booked dinner bed and breakfast for £99 each, which... More

The Bear Hotel in Devizes is a very friendly hotel. The rooms are clean and tidy although the single rooms in the main part of the hotel are a little on the small side. That apart they have everything you need for a comfortable stay. Beds are comfy but they could do with a second pillow. Room 25 has absolutely... More

Well located historic hotel. Loads of character, with good (pub type food) and ales. The room was adequate and of reasonable size, what you would expect from this age of building. The "Hotel Inspector" would have not been impressed with the bathroom, which could have done with a good clean - some bleach in the shower - not enough to... More
