The Bear is a traditional market town hotel situated right on the market square in Devizes. We had a large double room which was traditional in style but had a comfortable king-sized sleigh bed, plenty of storage, good TV and very effective shower. We ate in the bistro in the evening and for breakfast next morning and thoroughly enjoyed both... More

The Bear is situated in the main square. An historic building that retains many of its features. The downstairs is set out well with separate bars and bistros area. Feels very welcoming and cosy. Staff are helpful and professional. The room was a good size as was the bathroom with fluffy towels and soaps. Good supply of tea and coffee.... More

We stayed at The Bear on a Saturday as we were attending a party there. Location is very central over looking the market square. We had room 20, which was spacious but very tired. When checking in, we were not told of the breakfast time and when we arrived at 10:30 on a Sunday told we were too late! Left... More

We stayed one night at the Bear as we were attending a group dinner in a private room in the hotel. Our double room was small but quite comfortable and with a large bathroom. Our breakfast was fine although I have had better coffee. The full English and the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon were both good. The receptionist was... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights while visiting the area for a wedding. The location was central and very good for accessing town. It was easy to find their on site parking and the staff at reception were friendly. Our room (9) was large and has tea/coffee making facilities. The room itself was tired and needed updating. I...

My husband booked a double room with a fireplace online at The Bear, the reviews were reasonable and whilst we weren't expecting 5 star luxury we looked forward to a comfortable night in a reasonably sized room with period features. We checked in on a warm but not overly hot July afternoon and went up to our room. We opened... More

We chose The Bear Hotel in Devizes for our wedding ceremony and celebration. What a great choice we made! Everything was as we wanted it to be. The choice of rooms, the special attention from the management, the service for our wedding meal - the food was amazing - served hot, very tasty and plenty of it. Apple pie to... More

When visiting family we have often been taken to The Bear Hotel for Sunday lunch. With its white table cloths and nice surroundings in their dining room. We were somewhat disappointed when we found it closed and was told we eat in the Bistro. We were not told this on booking. We enjoy the " starched white table cloth experience".... More
