"Mostly OK but where's the personal touch?"
I arrived tired from walking and it was nice to have a nice hot bath. I ate in the restaurant. I stayed here some years ago when the restaurant was very good, but it is quite average now. I was able to work the TV in the bedroom. I could not sleep until the people next door had finished their shower and the fan went off. Breakfast was good, but this hotel has gone downhill over the years. There is a lack of personal welcome. Read less
Likes:
Nice view from the room. Good hot bath. The room looked nice with the beam exposed - might be nice to expose the other one too. The bathroom had been recently decorated. Breakfast was good.
Dislikes:
Lots.It is impossible to book by phone.Welcome was polite but not outgoing.They wanted my credit card no. even though I'd paid - unusual. The furniture was old-fashioned.Noisy fan next door.Overpriced
Response from The Bear Hotel:
Most of our bookings are taken over the phone. The restaurant has won many awards recently...years ago it was very much a 'frozen' menu and is now all chef prepared using local ingredients. The credit card number is taken, as in all hotels, to hold against room charges should you wish to add them. It is not a company run hotel and all staff are friendly and polite so apologies if you found otherwise. You only booked a single and were upgraded to a double at no extra charge.

The Bear Hotel has 37 en suite bedrooms all with hospitality trays, trouser press and hair dryer. All rooms have colour remote control LCD televisions with Freeview channels.

The new traditional looking restaurant is very relaxing and comfortable. The Restaurant provides excellent service to both residents and non-residents and offers a very high standard of cuisine with sophisticated A'la Carte menus and seriously good bar food.

The restaurant is open each day for diners seeking a leisurely meal in comfortable surroundings or business people requiring quiet and discreet surroundings with excellent food and fine wines.

At the end of the day the candlelit atmosphere of the restaurant provides the perfect setting for an intimate dinner party.

We are also located near to Blenheim Palace, Oxford City, The Cotswold Wildlife Park, Newbury and many more places for a great day out.Newly refurbished with new managers
