Last Aprial my wife and I visited this establishment for a birthday (mine) meal which was very good and for which I submitted a review. As a result of this experience I arranged to meet up with three pals that I was in the scouts with some 60 years ago. We booked dinner bed and breakfast for £99 each, which...

The Bear Hotel in Devizes is a very friendly hotel. The rooms are clean and tidy although the single rooms in the main part of the hotel are a little on the small side. That apart they have everything you need for a comfortable stay. Beds are comfy but they could do with a second pillow. Room 25 has absolutely...

Well located historic hotel. Loads of character, with good (pub type food) and ales. The room was adequate and of reasonable size, what you would expect from this age of building. The "Hotel Inspector" would have not been impressed with the bathroom, which could have done with a good clean - some bleach in the shower - not enough to...

Been visiting this hotel now for 10 years or more and the welcome is consistently helpful and friendly. Is a much used hotel by locals for meeting, chatting and having a drink together. Wonderful oak beams and old world charm. The Bear Grills Bistro serves excellent food - though a little higher than the average pub prices (it is a...

I arrived on Market day, and was concerned about parking as there were loads of stalls in the market place, and so much congestion. However I had good faith that the Hotel provided parking, and indeed it was easy to turn into the car park behind the Hotel. No problems there, there is also a long stay car park 50...

We stayed here in April for our wedding anniversary (on a Groupon). We only live 20 minutes away but it was a nice break from our 2 year old!! We parked no problem and although a bit early, we checked in and were given our room. There was a nice box of chocolates on the bed (Not sure if this...

Aside from staying two nights, we also used the hotel facilities for our wedding on the 16th May 2015. So glad we did, as our special day, could not have been better. All the staff and I mean all, were courteous, helpful and extremely friendly as well as professional. I would happily recommend the Bear In Devizes for your wedding.
