'Stayed at the Bear for one night, and absolutely loved it. Our room was modern, very clean and nicely decorated, literally couldn\'t fault it. And the breakfast was delicious too! The staff were very helpful with information on local restaurants and things to see and do in Bath. We parked our car in the rear car park which was very handy and safe. Overall, we had a lovely stay at The Bear and would highly recommend it!'

'We only stopped for one night en route to our end destination but couldn\'t have picked a better place. The feel of the place is \"modern vintage,\" a sort of post war, pre-smart phone reminder of what Britain was like. My wife and I loved it, the cosmopolitan staff were charming and helpful and the price very reasonable for what you get. The pub downstairs is lively but not raucous but the rooms are nicely separated to cut down the noise. Stay for the breakfast, well worth it. We will definitely stay again.'

Comfortable Hotel
4 stars 4

'My daughter and I stayed on a Sunday night after visiting the Thermae Bath Spa and the town; the wall downhill is 15 minutes to town but uphill needed a bus or taxi as it\'s rather steep! Loved the duvet & pillow being feathers and down. Sadly the room was rather too warm and the temperature was not adjustable- there was an AC unit on the wall but no remote and in fact no one told us there was a unit at all. Decor was nice, interesting but a little worn. The bookcase was an impressive eature, made me feel at home. Room and bathroom very clean. Floor boards were sort of 50\'s/60\'s but less comfortable being narrow, more so with bare feet. Staff were all extremely helpful and pleasant. Dinner was very good. A car park was essential for us and a reason for booking.'

It was a good walk to town centre but it sobered us up on the way back! We had a very nice room that was a little difficult from the normal and we liked it. Was very clean and well equipped, descent tea and coffee was in the room . The view from our room wasn\'t great but I guess nothing could be done about that! Our bed was very comfortable and the Mrs didn\'t complain about the pillow!! Breakfast was very good and top quality food used. Was maybe a little expensive but all in all a nice experience.

'My girlfriend and I stayed for a night while we visited Bath to see Stonehenge and the Roman Baths and we were blown away by The Bear. Not only was it quite affordable, the staff were super friendly, the room was absolutely lovely and the free breakfast in the morning was awesome. The only thing I would say is that it can get a bit noisey at night with the trucks going past, but honestly this wasn\'t much of an issue. Just remember to close up the windows at night to block some of the sound out and you\'re good. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a short or long term stay.'

Quick spa weekend.
4 stars 4

'Away for a quick weekend at the spa. The hotel food was excellent, as were the staff. The room was comfortable with the exception of AC. The room had a fan which proved useless, the only way to get air moving was to open the door as the windows that could open (the size of A4) needed the blinds to be open...but were closed for privacy. The chunky bed was lovely, the shower was nice and powerful, and was surprisingly quiet considering the room was above a pub.'

'Our first ever stay in Bath turned out to be the hottest day of the year. Still, a fan was provided in our room. The room was good, with a power shower in the en-suite. Having to sleep with the window wide open allowed for early morning traffic which couldn\'t be helped. Really nice meal in the evening, and a great breakfast the following morning. Staff very helpful, friendly and professional. Would probably stay there again.'

Situated about a 12 minute walk from Bath town centre. 15 mins up hill. Or a 5 minute bus ride for the less able. Had to wait about 50 minutes for our Tuesday night meal but it is cooked fresh . So expect a longer wait than preprocessed food. I would have given five stars for it but the front of the Hotel is looking a bit tired. Upgrade the frontage and its a little gold mine of a place The Staff were lovely. Guarenteed parking is a massive plus.'

'We booked for a two night stay at the Bear so that i could easily commute to kingstown golf club to play in a two day competition, and my wife could explore the history and the shopping that bath as to offer. The bear\'s location is a ten minute walk down hill to the city\'s bus station ,and a one pound journey uphill to the bus stop right outside the bear, if the shopping as being successful.Free on site parking is always good !no charge\'s, or carrying bags any distance.Met with a very friendly and smiling face at check in, in fact all the staff were particularly friendly, The food for the price was quality restaurant!!! and portion size\'s better, after a long day golfing or shopping!! know need to go searching , straight down stair\'s,GREAT!!'

'The staff at this hotel were more than accommodating. From the minute I stepped into the hotel, my partner and I were were made to feel extremely special. The decor and our room \'kipling\' was very edgey & in with the times. We loved the comfortable bed, beautiful bathroom and the balcony, which we spent on the late afternoons sat out on. The location, breakfast, food and drink were really reasonable, particularly as this hotel/ pub was in Bath. The manager and his staff were amazing, with me looking already to book for next year. Fantastic value for money!!!! With breakfast and a delicious one at that, all included in the price. Thank you for an amazing Easter break.'

'Stayed for 1 night in Kipling room. Staff friendly and helpful. Room clean. Loved the eclectic recycled furniture, retro 70\'s sideboards, church pews, typewriters, candelabra\'s etc. Warm friendly atmosphere in the bar in the evening (perfect for drinking Prosecco). Breakfast was amazing I had eggs Benedict whilst hubby had full English. The Bear is approx 12 min walk from central Bath but be aware that it is down a rather steep hill so remember that to get back to hotel you need to go up said hill or hop on a bus. Overall a positive stay.'

'Am going to give this 5 stars as this place is such a gem. For starters free parking which is practically unheard of in Bath! A 10 minute walk downhill into town & a short & cheap bus ride back up with the bus stopping right outside. Fabulous big room with some lovely quirky touches & a shower to die for with lovely big fluffy towels & lots of different teas & proper fresh coffees in the room. All the staff are just lovely and so helpful & the breakfasts (although they take a while to arrive) are obviously all cooked fresh and are some of the best I have ever eaten. To sum it up one of the best places I have ever stayed in & would definitely stay again. Thank you to all the staff for a really lovely stay.'

Good bed and breakfast
4 stars 4

'We used to live in Bath, just up the road from the pub, and you would never go to the pub then, so returning to Bath for a night we thought it would be interesting to try it out. Well the pub has undergone an amazing transformation! We paid £85 for bed and breakfast, which by Bath standards is good value. They have developed the rooms in a certain style, I felt like I was back in my living room as a child!! But nice to be different. Rooms are fairly basic, but the beds were comfortable, the shower was very powerful, and they are the most important things. We did have a room overlooking the road, and with the new slide glass window system, we could not hear the traffic at all and slept very well. The staff are all young, but excellent, friendly, professional and happy! Gives it all a great vibe. Breakfast in the morning was very good, fresh coffee of your choice and you can select from their Breakfast menu. Full English costs about £12, so if you both had that, then it makes the room very good value! We enjoyed the Vegetarian, but be warned it is massive, my husband could not finish it and I had a bowl of Granola and yogurt. (If I was paying the £6 charged for it, I would expect some fresh fruit with it, as it was not good value if compared to the cooked options) Would I recommend, yes definitely if you understand it is quite simple, but everything that needs to be good is, like beds, showers, breakfast are perfect. I feel the owners could keep it in slightly better condition, our room door looked like it had been forced open, plus perhaps soften it a bit? But that is just my opinion. Good value accommodation, with parking, a 10 minute downhill walk to Bath.'

'Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 2 nights over New Years and we have both said how brilliant this hotel was. The rooms were spacious and had a vintage feel to it. Our room had a double shower which was a cool feature, especially for us as it saved time. Vibrant bar and restaurant area. The evening food was very good and reasonable in price too! Also we had free breakfast included in our booking and the breakie is not to be missed! (Although we didn\'t get up in time New Year\'s Day for it lol) The staff are fantastic. In the mornings there was a very chirpy, vibrant and polite young man (apologise but didn\'t catch his name) just so he gets recognisian he was the black dude who was very well spoken and well, Frankly gave excellent service! Also the young girl with the auburn/ginger coloured hair was very polite and happy. Then at night there was another young chap who couldn\'t do enough for you. It was very busy New Year\'s Eve but he made a lot of effort and got us a dinner table with 10 minutes notice. He also pointed us out places to go in the night. Only 5/10 mins from the city centre and although on a main road, you still had a sound sleep. Overall I gave this place 5 stars because we had a fantastic experience in the bear and would recommend it to anybody. Happy new year guys!!'

'We stayed for three nights over Christmas which we were spending with family within walking distance. So highly convenient for that, as well as being within an easy walk of the city centre. The room we had was generally very good (Kipling) although the lighting could have been better. A nice big shower room and plenty of shelf space. It would have been nice to have had two chairs, not only one. The room was well provide with tea-making ingredients, but some of this was in the mugs. So if you wanted tea these items had to be tipprd on to the side. Why not have a jar for them? The breakfast was American-style but nicely cooked. Best of all, however, were the staff who were cheerful, friendly and helpful. So, very good. We would stay again.'

An absolute credit to the company with his lovely chat and nature. We loved the retro feel of the furniture and surroundings. The food was lovely. The only downside was the noise of the electrical motors outside our bedroom window which kept me awake. We will definitely come back but ask for a room away from that. Jane and Nick Harriott'

'The staff were really friendly and couldn\'t help enough. The location was in a nice district of Bath up a steep hill (not unusual if you\'re staying outside of the centre) and was within a short bus ride into town. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable. The full English breakfast was huge to the extent that I didn\'t need to eat lunch. The bar itself was popular with a great range of drinks. The wooden floor upstairs was noisy during footfall which was fine normally other than late at night when I think staff were closing and checking security. That could have been done quieter as well as the chat. This shouldn\'t put people off from booking, just the staff need to be aware. The breakfast menu appeared to be a bit limited if you wanted fruit or cereal for example'

'Stayed here for a night on our mini moon. This was the cheapest hotel we stayed in on our mini moon but turned out to be the one that offered the best in terms of customer service which made it one of the best hotels. Upon arrival met by the charming bar man who immediately offered us a drink after a long journey. He congratulated us and took the time to talk to us. He then assisted my husband with the luggage to the room insisting that all I carried was my handbag. After settling into the quirky room we then went back down to the bar and was drawn a map of how to get to places with minimal effort and steps. (This is a gods send when your heavily pregnant) the room had everything that was needed and was quite comfortable and I loved the raindrop shower head. A few have commented on noise levels from the bar but we had a room at the front and can honestly say it didn\'t bother us one bit and we weren\'t aware of any noise from the bar and only a bit from the traffic outside but not enough that it caused any issue. The hotel is situated within walking distance to sites/attractions. Breakfast is served in the bar and was of a generous portion and we were able to keep our car in the car park for the duration of the day after checkout to continue site seeing. All in all this hotel is not the most luxurious but it has everything you need, ideally located and great value for money but what really makes this hotel is the staff. It\'s a first class personalised service which is far better than I have recieved in other much more expensive hotels'

A nice but not \"grand\" place to use for a visit to Bath
4 stars 4

'We loved this hotel from the moment we arrived. The welcome was so warm and friendly. The dining area is \"understated\" - there are no table cloths; after all the establishment is also a pub. However, the menu is ambitious and the cooking is much above average. The tomato soup was the nicest we have eaten anywhere. The service was attentive and friendly and a plus for the hotel. The room (and the whole establishment) was still being redecorated and it lacked enough places to put down clothes. But the new proprietor knows this and will put it right. The double bed was very comfortable. The bathroom will be very adequate when the hooks are in place. Overall The Bear is a very pleasant place to use for a visit to Bath. Bath is no place for a car and The Bear has good parking and has a town bus stop right outside its front door!.'

Unfortately my boyfriend wasn\'t well and I was nursing a hangover but luckily for us our room had the most comfiest bed, where he slept all afternoon and I watched a film very cosy and comfortably, we then went downstairs and had a pizza each, as a chef, and spent 4 years making pizzas I know how hard it is too make good fresh pizzas and these were amazing and the prawns were cooked to perfection. The scrambled egg with toast in the morning was Devine also! The staff were lovely, we tried to check in early and although the staff were busy with Sunday lunch, they were very polite and accommodating and managed to get us in early! (Which my boyfriend definitely appreciated.) Not the weekend we planed but it was definitely made up by staying here, I would 100% recommend it. Thank you!'

They upgraded our room and even put a beautiful boquet of flowers in the room (which are now sitting on my coffee table). We were greeted so warmly and really looked after by all the staff, with Chris giving us some advice on how to spend our Saturday with an entertaining commentary:) The room was lovely and the breakfast a 10/10. We loved that the bedrooms are named after writers and loved the smurfs on the landing! I would definitely stay here again. Thanks to all at The Bear.'

We had an excellent evening meal and a tasty, hearty breakfast - both meals beautifully presented. And we were allowed to leave the car after we\'d checked out which really helped as it saved us trying to park in Bath. It was just a 15 minute walk down the hill into the city but there\'s a bus stop outside if you don\'t fancy climbing back up again. Really couldn\'t fault The Bear for service and good value. Would highly recommend and would love to stay again if we come back to Bath. (Oh, and if you enjoy gin,they have an extensive collection to try.)'

4 stars 4

'This is a great hotel, very friendly staff and tasty food (breakfast is tremendous!). The room was good, however it was rather sparse and the bed could have been a kingsize as there is sufficient room - seems a shame to just have a double. Bathroom very good,apart from a rusty soap dispenser on the wall - recommend you just remove this as it ruins the aesthetic. Would definitely stay again, but would request a room at the rear, due to traffic noise.'

The bed was very comfortable, the staff were very friendly and charasmatic, and the food was great. If I were to leave any constructive feedback, it would be that the rooms were a little bare (please forgive the pun!). The walls could have been brightened up by a picture or two, but this is very minor in an overall fantastic stay in the lovely city Would definitely recommend!'

'We have just returned from Bath having spent a memorable Friday, Saturday and Sunday night at The Bear. We were made to feel very welcome and were impressed with the room (Shakespeare) and the bar and restaurant facilities. Our breakfast and evening meal there were faultless and delicious. The following members of staff all deserve a special mention: Gium, Ben, Bess and a young Polish waitress (whose name sadly we didn\'t get). They could not do enough for us and they made us feel at home and very welcome. We highly recommend this establishment.'

After seeing the room (Byron) we were a bit concerned regarding the noise as we were in the front and above the bar - we didn\'t need to worry as no noise came up from the bar and, with the windows closed, any traffic noise was muted enough not to cause a worry. Delicious evening meals in sufficient quantity. The cooked breakfast was very nice, but a selection of cooked breakfast, cereal and toast, etc., is now usually expected, rather than an either / or option.'

'We stayed at the bear for 2 nights, and can honestly say it was brilliant. The rooms are spacious, clean and look brilliant. The included breakfast was a real bonus and tasted amazing. The location of the bear is great too, only a 15 minute walk into the city centre. Would defiantly recommend to others.'

Fantastic hotel with personal touches
5 stars 5

'The hotel is perfect for a short trip to bath, the room is clean and well furnished with 1950\'s style furniture, and the pub serves great wine and food. It\'s a short walk from the centre of Bath, only about 10 minutes. The best part about the hotel was the friendly staff, especially a drink brought up to the room on check in (after a very long drive) and the bottle of prosecco given to us when we said we were away for our anniversary! It\'s a great hotel and would definitely stay again.'

a weekend with my daughter
5 stars 5

'It\'s always a pleasure to spend a rare weekend on my own with my daughter on her own but this one was even more special because of the staff and service at The Bear. We were delighted and impressed that everyone was so helpful and welcoming: it made such a difference. The weather was so wet that we didn\'t feel much like spending long exploring Bath and because your food was unexpectedly excellent we didn\'t need to keep venturing out into the wet to find somewhere to eat. It was perfect that you seemed content for us to sit around and chat while you looked after us with coffee, food, water and newspapers and just the right amount of care. Thank you'

Extremely convenient for RPS HQ
4 stars 4

'I used The Bear for an overnight stay before an assessment day at Royal Photographic Society HQ just around the corner. The staff were friendly and helpful, albeit slightly inexperienced. The room was spacious and clean, even if a little spartan. The bed was comfortable. En suite facilities met my needs. The pub restaurant downstairs is obviously trying to establish a reputation. The food is OK. The scrambled egg at breakfast was delicious. You need to walk down a steep hill to reach the city centre, but a regular bus service stops right outside the hotel. I was very grateful that I could leave my car in the car park while attending at RPS.'

Discovery of Bath and of The Baer Hotel
4 stars 4

'Our room - Shakespeare - was a little noisy during the night, but nice, clean and spacious. The reception and the contact with the staff were friendly; the breakfast rich and good, and the cooking very gastronomic. The hotel is near to the city center - by foot or by bus - and that makes easy the discovery of Bath.'

We\'ll definitely stay again and will recommend friends do too.'

'We arrived late Friday evening and was greeted by a man a with long ponytail and a big smile. He was exceptionally welcoming and showed us to our room which was simple but very effective. The bathroom clean and fresh. After we were showed around the room, with very little time to spare before the kitchen was closed Gary the manager let us stay for dinner and cocktails. I had the steak which was cooked to perfection and tasted delicious with my girlfriends ratatouille. My girlfriend had the ratatouille which she also thought was delicious. As for the espresso martini, it was first class. All in all, zazus the restaurant and the bear hotel was a brilliant stay. No problems or issues with any staff of food. As for value for money I would recommend this place to anybody. We will be back for another visit. Thank you for everything Bear, Gary and the team for everything. Just a shame we didn\'t stay for breakfast on our last day.'

The rooms were sparsely decorated but comfortable and the bathroom was beautifully renovated. Staff were absolutely fabulous - friendly, helpful and with a sense of humour. Breakfast was high standard but we missed out on the restaurant because of opening night. However, we were invited to the drinks party which was lots of fun and ate around the corner at the Indian which was of a high standard. We\'d stay there again.'

'We chose The Bear because it was slightly outside of the main city and the reviews were interesting.Unfortunately we chose the week when renovating started to update this venue which meant the dining area and part of the bar was closed,so we did not see this venue at its best. On saying that it has great potential and the staff being one of its biggest assets. They were extremely friendly and helpful and I would like to thank them for making our stay very welcoming.The rooms were a little sparse and ours in particular had lots of traffic noise unfortunate on a sunny day when the windows need to be open maybe a ceiling fan would make life more comfortable and on that note our little group craved a chest of draws just to be able to unpack our suitcase an age thing maybe! Good luck with the refurb I will be checking the website for the new look'

'Returned to Manchester today after a one night stay in Bath to use a voucher for the Thermae Bath Spa. Came across The Bear hotel after doing some extensive research and thought it sounded perfect- turns out it was! The Bear is a modern pub with hotel rooms above, all named after famous writers. We stayed in the Shakespeare room at the front of the hotel and had no issue with noise from the pub or from anything going on outside. Breakfast was included in our stay and we both went for the Big Bear breakfast which was a full English and it was lovely. After having a wander round Bath for a bit, we came back for some dinner and had chicken and bacon filled ciabattas which were amazing. The only thing that annoyed me (and this is purely down to me being a typical vain girl when it comes to getting ready) is that there was no mirror in the main room and only in the bathroom which had no plug sockets so I couldn\'t see what I was doing when I was styling my hair. Overall though I was very impressed and wouldn\'t hesitate to recommend The Bear to anyone planning a stay in Bath. Helpful staff, delicious food, simplistic and modern rooms- you can\'t go wrong.'

Good hotel for a short weekend in Bath
4 stars 4

'We stayed for two nights at The Bear, as part of a weekend away in Bath. I had read good reviews which is why I booked the hotel. It was in a good location, with a 10 minute walk into the city centre. I had asked for a \"quiet\" room when booking the hotel and we were offered a room at the back of the hotel which was above the terrace. As a result, the room was quite noisy on the Friday evening when the terrace was busy. Other than that, the hotel was quiet. The room was clean and spacious, but it was very hot and the desk fan which was already in the room, was on all night, both nights. The breakfast was great, good choice, very tasty and all in the cost of the room. Overall a good stay.'

'At first the hotel wasn\'t that easy to find. I made several wrong turns from the Rail Station, and had to get help from Google map with location service. However, after finding the hotel correctly, it wasn\'t that far away from the Rail Station, about 20 minutes walk if picking the right route. The hill is a little bit steep with the suitcase, but wasn\'t too hard. I love the room I stayed so much! It was a lot bigger than I imagined and had a great view! The staff was very helpful and offered a bucket of food when learning that I wouldn\'t be able to make the breakfast because of an early train. Although there\'s no staff before 8 AM, but they offered early check-out. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Bath.'

The Bear in Bath
4 stars 4

'We got a great deal to stay in this hotel for the night - an absolute bargain! Great location, really friendly staff, cosy room and a brilliant breakfast. It really is just a 5 minute walk into town - and the fact we were able to park there for free made this an ideal place to stay for a weekend getaway. A bit quirky but with lots of character - much better than staying in a run-of-the-mill chain hotel!'

3 nights in Bath
3 stars 3

'Rooms extremely basic, definitely a lot of room for improvement. Restaurant offers two fish dishes besides the standard steaks and burgers which was really appreciated. Own parking area is another positive aspect. Location at the top of the hill is perfect for leaving Bath quickly but requests quite a walking time to the city centre, however, that's manageable bus/taxi can be used for return. Being on holidays we've been not in a hurry but waiting for breakfast for more than one hour at departure missing the necessary kitchen staff is basically not acceptable. To summarize: main criticism on room equipment and breakfast service.'

Great hotel, shame about the parking
4 stars 4

'We really enjoyed our stay at The Bear - conveniently located within easy walking distance of the city centre, the hotel has friendly and helpful staff, very comfortable rooms, a nice bar and good food etc. My only criticism is in regards to the car park, which is a little awkward with people parking somewhat haphazardly - we parked within a marked bay but came down on our last morning to discover that someone had bumped our car and shunted it backwards several inches, almost into the stone wall behind - whoever was responsible left no note. Whilst I certainly don't hold the hotel responsible, I was disappointed that they didn't have CCTV coverage of the car park - they take details of guests' cars so would have been able to help identify the person responsible so they could be reported to the police for leaving the scene of an accident.'

A Mixed Bag
3 stars 3

'Staying at the Bear was a mix of highs and lows. The room was (Chaucer) well appointed with a comfortable bed and good sized bathroom. On the downside, it was noisy, and if the windows were shut it became too stuffy to sleep. The breakfast was nice, but it took 40 minutes to come out after ordering each morning. It also lacked some healthy options, and there was no fresh cold water which we could serve ourselves. The pub food is fantastic, obviously an extra. It may also be time for the communal hotel iron to be upgraded. Parking was ample and convenient. Overall it was a pleasant stay, but either the price of the rooms need to come down to reflect it is at a pub which is noisy, or something needs to be done about the noise - such as double glazed windows and Air Con units in each room.'

The Bear Bath
3 stars 3

'Hotel and rooms are clean. I like the interior of the room and hotel. Nice big bathroom, shower was very good. Friendly and helpful staff. Lovely breakfast, really nice that you can order the breakfast instead of a buffet. Croissants are amazing! A bit noisy with the wooden floors. Would recommend perhaps more carpets within the rooms to absorb some of the sound. Our room was next to a family with a young toddler that was running around from 6am in the morning, with the wooden floors we could hear every single step from the room next door. Quite noisy with the road just outside the room window, not sure what can be done do better soundproof the room. Wooden blinds lets a lot of light in early morning. Nice to have such a wide selection of teas and coffee in the room together with the chocolate treat. Enjoyed our stay.'

A few minor issues
3 stars 3

'The location of the bear was good, breakfast fantastic, just a few issues on our stay. We pushed the beds together in our room & clearly it hadnt been cleaned under the beds for some time & there was also a sock. We had been in our room say 20 minutes & somebody just walked in, without even knocking, although he was very apologetic. Teabags not replaced once you have used them. We stayed for 2 nights & after the 1st night the room was serviced whilst we were out, on returning the bed had been made & there were blood on the sheets, also we had no toilet paper, we advised reception of this & this was sorted out promptly. On paying the bill we were given a £30 discount as apparently the housekeeper had cut her hand so ours wasnt the only room with this problem. Overall a nice stay, although i have to say the thing i am most concerned with is that on the back of my invoice from the hotel is the staff's name's, wage's for the week & their national insurance numbers?! Surely this is a data protection breech?'

The cocktails were lovely and were two 4 one, breakfast was amazing one of the best we've had and the staff were very friendly and helpful :) Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable and we loved the retro touches. The bed and bedding was very comfortable and cosy. The only downside to this hotel was it looked more like a pub from the outside and it was a 15 minute up hill walk to get there from the town centre. We ended up getting cabs which were only £5-£7 which overall still worked out cheaper than staying in one of the pricer hotels in the centre of Bath. Other than the location we were more than happy with our stay! :)'

4 stars 4

'First of all I would like to say that we very much enjoyed our stay here recently. We were only here for one night but the staff, and Kelly in particular, made it a very enjoyable and easy experience. They assisted us in getting around Bath, supplying a map and some local recommendations, and even offered to extend our check out time on learning that we were a little worse for wear the next morning. All the staff we encountered were friendly, enthusiastic and eager to help. Unfortunately whilst the room was lovely and spacious we did find a few problems. Firstly the shower door came off its rollers when we attempted to use it. Secondly the room that we were in had a his and hers shower feature, however this was impossible to use due to the way it had been plumbed. You could not get hot water out of both showers simultaneously which unfortunately meant this nice feature was redundant. The rest of the hotel was great however. Breakfast was delicious and the chef was accommodating when we requested some alterations to the set menu. The bar area was really nice and homely and drinks not too expensive. Would definitely stay again but perhaps would request the room with a bath instead.'

'Good location and facilities with friendly & helpful staff. We paid extra for a back room believing it to be in a quieter location. Unfortunately the large noisy industrial kitchen extractor fan was located directly outside our room. The first night wasn't a problem as the extractor fan was switched off when the kitchen closed about 22.00 hrs. On our second night the extractor fan was left on ALL NIGHT! The noise was incredible and as a result the night seemed endless and no sleep was had. Therefore our rating of only 3 reflects our much disturbed nights rest!'

'I arrived at The Bear at about half seven to find a fairly busy pub which was lovely to see on a Tuesday. I was shown to very large and comfortable room by a polite member of staff. My room was at the back so I didn't have any noise from the bar/restaurant downstairs or from the road. It was a little noisy at about 23:00 but this was nothing that disturbed me. The only point I would made was the noise from the floorboards outside the bedroom could be a little loud but nothing a slightly larger rug wouldn't rectify. All the facilities were clean, tidy and very stylish. Overall for the price I paid The Bear was a steal and I will definitely recommend highly and return in the future.'

Room / stay review
4 stars 4

'We stayed at the Bear on Saturday 14th September, just a matterof days after the refurbishment had been completed. The decor and qualityof the rooms was excellent, all fresh and well decorated. We had an issue with our shower and bathroom light which was sorted out very quickly by the staff. I would like to make a couple of suggestions: the wood floor in rooms and hall ways is loveley but very noisy with people moving in and out of rooms and can be heard from in the rooms while trying to sleep, maybe some sort of carpet runner would cut down on noise . Also in the room we stayed in "Shakespere" there was no chair to allow me to sit at the dressing table to do my hair & makeup and it would also be good to have a lamp on the dressing table i had to move the bedside lamp to shine light on the mirror. It would also be very helpfuly to have perhaps an easy chair to put things on as the clothes hanging area was very nice but not practical. The staff were all extremely helpfuly and the service provided was excellent. I would certainly stay again. Thanks Clare Bale'
