We had never visited The Bear before and had been treated to afternoon tea by some friends. The service by the staff especially the manager was exceptional, they made you feel valued, important and cared for you very much, nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was beautiful, nicely presented and prepared with so much care and attention.... More

Did not stay but took friends out for a thank-you evening meal. It was a good choice and we enjoyed a simple but pleasant meal. We ate in the traditional bar and it proved a good choice. Easy to find and park. Pleasant efficient staff.

We stayed for a couple of nights, arriving early we were showed straight up to our room (22) with a great view of the market square. Charlie helped us up with our luggage without being asked. It was a large room, light and airy and well furnished. The shower was powerful in a good sized en-suite. There was a good... More

Stayed here with my husband for 2 nights on a Wowcher deal, we do these trips often as we love walking. This is one of the few places we would have been happy to pay the full price. We had a double room with a beautiful bathroom which had a lovely deep bath (great after a long walk) as well... More

We stayed on a two night deal with KGB in mid July,as others have said it is a very old building 17th century,with lots of character,sloping floors and odd angles here and there. Our room was quite spacious and well appointed,number 14 I believe,but after the first night we asked if we could change rooms due to the noise from... More

Had no intention of staying in Devizes, but with University graduations in Bath and the city full we decided to look further afield. A friend had mentioned the Bear as a good place to stay so off we headed. So glad we did! As we just walked in with no booking the manager discounted the room and even though it... More

Beautiful character hotel in central location of Devizes. Hotel staff and service all excellent. We decided to have dinner in the hotel and the food was really good and not too pricey, we ate in the bar area by choice as the restaurant was a bit quiet. Family friendly as we had our 3.5yr old daughter, we requested a bigger... More

We were given a 2 day stay at this hotel as a present and if we were honest would not have been a natural choice we would have made. LUCKY US! The staff were smart, polite and attentive - without exception - very impressive. We had a 3 course evening meal which was superb.If I was being picky I would... More

we had a weekend at the Bear and loved it. The staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive. the building is very old and full of character, but even so the ammeneties are modern and to a high standard. the decor is in sympathy with the building and again well done. Having said that the building is old - going... More

honestly, we booked here because in the basement a band that we wanted to see was playing that night. What a delight (and not just the band). The receptionist was very obliging (directed me with parking and moved us to a different room when the one we had booked turned out to be tooooo noisy (overlooking kitchen with fans outside)....
