Would definitely recommend

The staff are attentive and friendly upon arrival.

The building has so much charm from being so old, and the room is decorated in a style that compliments that. The booklet in the room was helpful with all the menus, times and prices along with information of local interests. Parking in the back of the hotel which was one of the reasons I chose this place. Lots of tea and coffee options in the rooms.

The breakfast was amazing, so much choice I had 3 courses. The breakfast staff couldn't have been more helpful either. The only reason for knocking a star off, is the cover that went across the bed was very stained and spoilt an otherwise perfect room.

The Bear Hotel

Receptionist not very helpful and rather off hand.

The hotel good for its age, in a very nice location. Comfortable in the bar and rooms. We had a special offer and felt it very good value.

Nice old style hotel.

Not sure if it would be everyones cup of tea but we enjoyed the none chain hotel feel for a change. Room was little tired, but good bar and a nice breakfast

Tired and overpriced.

Back pokey room with the noise of ventilation motor all night. The only thing that redeemed the visit was the breakfast staff who were polite, efficient and very kind, over and above the call of duty.

Awesome 1 nights stay at the Bear Hotel in Devizes!

From the moment I entered the hotel I was treated with the utmost respect.

The hotel had a lovely friendly feel to it with 2 bars and a friendly hotel reception. My executive single room was furnished in matching antique classic furniture, but with a modern, very comfortable 3/4 bed and modern clean shower room. I had a lovely meal in the Bear Grill and the best nights sleep in months. I am already planning to return in March and bring my elderly Mum down to visit her relatives. I would recommend the Bear Hotel to any traveller. The hotel is steeped in History dating from the 1500's but if there are any ghosts, I am sure they are all friendly!

Thank goodness - a decent hotel in Devizes

I've stayed in some pretty poor hotels in Devizes hoping small would be beautiful but I was wrong.

The Bear is a larger hotel than most but it is far better than the others. Wonderful small front bar serving superb beer in the evening and a fantastic breakfast the next day. It's been a long time since I've slept in a single room that only had room for one but it was comfortable, clean, quiet and spotlessly clean. I don't think I will ever look to stay anywhere else when work sends me to Devizes again
