I've known this hotel all my life, but this was the first time of staying here, its 500 years old so you should what to expect. We had a great room adjacent to the town square, getting there on a wednesday meant that the market (which does start assembling at 4.30am) was in full swing a great spectacle from our... More

I often use the hotel for business meetings and interviews, and do so up to ten times a year. Sometimes I may just be sat in the bar area and other times I hire a room depending on my needs. It is an old hotel, not unlike many you can find in market towns across the UK and has limited... More

We had room 11 during the warm weather at the end of June, the room and bathroom was very clean and well equipped but was very warm day... More

In the town centre (opposite the car park that becomes the town's market on a Thursday) stands The Bear Hotel. Once a Coaching Inn it still retains its old world charm. After a long day visiting nearby Avebury and the surrounding archaeological treasures we checked in and headed up an old wooden circular staircase, along passage ways with different floor... More

Me and my parents decided to stay at The Bear due to an online offer giving a significant discount. The hotel room was spacious, beds were comfortable, the bathroom was very clean and again large. The dining area was large and a full English breakfast was available. Also on site were a restaurant and two bar areas. The staff were... More

Stayed at The Bear in June via a groupon deal. Very pleased with our room and the staff were all very polite and helpful. The breakfast was ideal. The hotel location in the centre of the town was great and having the on site parking was really good. We would stay at this hotel again as every thing about our... More

I have stayed at The Bear regularly over the past two years. The Reception staff are all helpful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is great, the waitresses are very efficient and kind; they help to get the day off to a good start. Dinner in the Bistro or Bar area is good and staff are happy to... More

I stayed here on business for one night at the end of May, upon arrival I asked for a quiet room and was given a single in the middle of the hotel and it was indeed quiet, I booked a double but quiet was more important to me. I actually locked myself out of the room within 10 minutes of... More

This is a well maintained, clean and comfortable establishment with character, quality furnishings and fittings. The place feels cared for and the staff are happy and eager to please. The food in the restaurant was delicious, fresh, of very good quality, nicely presented and represented good value. The very pleasant waitress obviously had intimate knowledge of the menu, daily specials... More
