We stayed at the hotel on the "Relax and Recharge" package (Offered Jan/Feb) which gave us Dinner/Bed/Breakfast for 1 night. The reception staff were all very friendly and helpful when we arrived and showed us walking route across Rodborough Common to Stroud which made a very pleasant walk. The evening meal in the Library restaurant was very good. It was...

Visited the Bear today for the first time in many years and the whole experience was superb. Two couples and a dog for drinks and a lunchtime meal. The food was great and the service was exceptional. Not cheap for a pub lunch, but it was a lot more than just a normal pub lunch. We will return more often!

Visited this lovely venue early on a Sunday evening , four adults two dogs. Warm welcoming, friendly, staff. Warm and architecturally gorgeous building. Two log fires going. Dog treats offered immediately, always a good sign for dog lovers. This must be an amazing end to a brisk walk across the common ( we were in the car on this occasion)....

The food was excellent and great value. However I found the service very poor, we were rushed into what drinks we were having as well as what food we would like. When asking to see a desserts menu, we were forgotten about for around 10 minutes. Same happened when we asked for the bill. The steak night was great value...

We visited with our dog, Bertie. The room was ok, not brilliant but clean and functional, in the garden house. I have to say the staff here are excellent, especially don who looked after us on our first day. Whether you are in the bear bar, the common room or the restaurant you will be well looked after. On our...

Had booked about a month in advance for a 1 night Valentines stay. When we arrived we got a complementary upgrade to the master suite (room 1), result ! Suite was really comfortable, although it did take a while to warm up (it's hard to keep such an old building warm), there was a whirlpool bath in a well-equipped bathroom...

Actually like the Cotswolds Inns and Hotels Group. I choose them where I can. This one is ok but it is 3 star so don't come here expecting more room wise! Let's firstly talk about the good bits. The Library restaurant food and service was good but on a Tuesday evening it was a bit cold and atmosphere less (...

The open wood fires made the the hotel immediately inviting, The breakfasts and evening meals were excellent but it was the friendliness of the staff that really made our stay memorable,, nothing seemed too much trouble for them. We were fortunate to be given an upgrade for our...

Lovely hotel. Enjoyed the complimentary apples and sparkling water. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We asked for a packed lunch which wasn't a problem and was great. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Free wifi throughout the hotel. We are in the bar both nights and can't fault the food at all. The breakfast was great too. The...

We stayed at The Bear for a family gathering for an 80th Birthday, all staff were very friendly and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble! The staff made us feel really welcome with personal service such as a birthday card and small box of chocolates in the room which was clean and comfortable. The food was amazing in the restaurant...
