"I want to stay in Wantage again!"
I really enjoyed my one night stay at The Bear Hotel. The bedroom I stayed in has been recently refurbished with lovely furnishings. The bed and pillows were comfortable. As a lone traveller I was looked after very well in the restaurant where I enjoyed a lovely 3 course meal. I wasn't rushed and the staff were attentive. Read less
Likes:
It was comfortable, friendly and located in a lovely village to walk around to stretch the legs after a long day of travel.
Dislikes:
My only comment was that there wasn't any shampoo in the room. Soap and hand/body wash only so I had to nip out to the shops to get some - but it's not a negative comment as the room had everything.

Likes:
The hotel was central to our requirements. The staff were friendly and professional.
Dislikes:
I had to crawl around on my hands and knees to plug in the kettle.

Similar task in having to plug in bedside lamp.

Bed not made properly.

We will stay again though without question.
