    Individual guest reviews

      A very pleasant stay at The Bear Hotel. Nice and central for Devizes. Was a little concerned to look out onto the Main Street on arrival in the room but needn't have worried, it was so quiet. A very comfortable room - No 4. Nice breakfast next morning. Would definately stay there again if visiting Devizes.

      Nothing not to like about The Bear Hotel.

      how normal but polite all the staff were

      the bed was a little bit short

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      I found the hotel very welcoming, relaxing and very well and tastefully decorated. So many hotels of this age look run down, but not The Bear. I also liked the fact that local staff were employed, again so often the hotels are staffed by Europeans. Although we only stayed one night, in order to see the Caens hill locks, I wish we had a reason to return.

      Location, The Bear offers almost everything you would require in a hotel, good food either in the Bistro, restaurant or bar, a facility for meetings and family parties, immaculately furnished and decorated bedrooms and most of all, a lovely old building right in the centre of town.

    • Older travelers

      You gave us just what we wanted no hidden extras super breakfast and VFM ,!

    • Older travelers
      9.6

      The building although old has been renovated extensively whilst still retaining atmosphere. The room was very comfortable and had every facility we wanted. The food was excellent.

    • Family with children
      9.6

      Period decor, friendly & helpful staff, great pub meals, size of rooms, preservation of original building, location in centre of town

      Air in the room was very still despite having windows open at night. Ceiling fans would assist with air circulation when the nights are warm

    • Group of friends
      10.0

      Very clean hotel, friendly staff, good facilities. Great breakfast, good bar and restaurant, also great location.

    • Single

      Reliably comfortable, good food and real ale.

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      The staff were excellent. Helpful, considerate and friendly without being intrusive. The room, 22, was a very good. Clean, well decorated and comfortable. The room service was excellent.

      The bottom of the bath was slippery so standing whilst taking a shower could be a hazard. I recommend providing a rubber bath mat. The Chef is clearly good at his job. However, whilst I thoroughly enjoyed 'Scallops', my wife found just too many mixed flavours in the 'Beef'. Neither my wife nor I have a sweet for this reason and we chose an alternative restaurant for the next evening.

    • Older travelers

      Great location and atmosphere, and friendly staff

      I often have trouble with 'bouncy' pillows in hotel- this was no exception.
