Atmosphere and character. The property is an excellent example of a traditional market town establishment - good food, friendly and responsive staff and a meeting place for locals. The booking information states that the hotel is a good venue for disabled. To access the reception, function rooms or Bistro there are steps to negotiate - there are lots of stairs.... More

Overall a very nice place to stay. Clean, very well situated and pretty good value for money. The breakfast was great, the bar had a great vibe and was always busy thus adding to the atmosphere. The service was overall great, although at times the hotel seemed undermanned especially in the bar area when it got busy.

This is a very good hotel in the centre of Devizes. Our room was large with a big bathroom and very comfortable bed. The staff were exceptionally friendly and the service in the hotel restaurant was absolutely excellent with very tasty food indeed.

Unfortunately-a few weeks ago my friends and I had lunch-which was lovely but when it came to order a dessert we were told the kitchen was closed. My friends and... More

Didnt stay at the hotel but frequented the bar to sample the pie of the day which was the best ever. Pastry case in shortcrust made with water so the proper pie pastry, soaking up the most delicious gravy. Great veg and smooth mash. Lovely staff

We took room 26 on L2, for my husband and I, and for his sister room 19 on L1. We called to reserve our rooms that morning via our Poole hotel and had a long journey in traffic to Devizes. On arrival we found our booking was not registered. Luckily 2 rooms were found, and no excuse offered as to... More

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
