Devizes
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Located right in the centre of Devizes at the market square. Whether you go in for a meal, snack or just a beer, the service is first class by friendly and helpful staff. The interior is like stepping back into the 40s/50's but in a way that provides all modern amenities.

Simply a lovely pub to visit. The staff are friendly and the beer is nice, with a decent log fire to sit next to. I always pop in when I visit Devizes, on my short loop of the town. In summer I like to sit at the window and watch the world pass by.

Popped in here on a cold frosty morning during December. Went into the front bar, there's no bell to ring for service so walked through to main lounge area after no-one came to serve us. Ordered two hot chocolates which took ten minutes to arrive and were lukewarm when they did! With so much competition in Devizes in terms of...

Regularly stayed at this hotel over the last three years and have been a great fan of independent elegant hotels; however, there comes a time when the prices that are charged need to reflect the hotel. Service has remained absolutely great and the staff are very professional and polite; the rooms do not reflect this. We had room 3 which...

Had a very enjoyable stay, our only challenge was at breakfast, service did not flow, we ordered cooked food, but unfortunately it was delivered to the table whilst we were still eating our fruit and yogurt.

Room 3. A little 'worn'. Chipped furniture, frayed carpets. No room in the bathroom for towels so they have to be left on the bed. No handle to help old duffers to get into the over-bath shower and no anti-slip mat. Not enough to put up a notice saying "slippery when wet" if I slip and break my leg! Cost...

Good service from the friendly staff, excellent breakfast. The hotel is quite old and slightly quirky with some floors and doors old and creaky but that led to the character of the place. The disappointment which had quite an affect was that room No1 is directly above the rear of the bar and what seems like a store room, and...

The Bear Hotel is much more than a hotel...it is pouring with rain and Lucy beckons but where to eat ...you look at the usual coffee shops but then the Bear Hotel with its large windows on Devizes's magnificent market square revealed its welcoming log fire...a great draw. Food was ordered and served fresh and with little wait accompanied by...

My husband, daughter and I stayed at The Bear Hotel Sunday evening. We had booked, at very short notice, with Expedia and ended up getting a very good room rate for our family room. On arrival, staff were very helpful and check-in speedy. The ambience, even in the lobby, was lovely. Very old style, with an aura of tranquility. Our...

we stayed overnight as a group for a 60th birthday celebration, a special dinner for 10 was organised, and we then went to an evening of 'blues' in the cellar bar. The hotel is well situated for visiting the area (ie 22 miles to Longleat). We will certainly be going back to stay longer and visit the local attractions.
