"Adequate"
Our room was rather cramped with nowhere to sit down other than the beds, but adequate for one night. The en suite bathroom was extremely cramped with nowhere to put down a sponge bag. Everything was very clean, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Being elderly we appreciated that there was a lift.
The restaurant for an evening meal seemed very good. Read less

Dislikes:
The rooms are well past their sell by date and I have to say a bit grotty. When I checked out they never asked how was my stay, probably because they already knew, but the price wasn't expensive.

"Lovely place in centre of town"
We stayed only one night as were attending a friends birthday party nearby, we arrived a little early but were given our room keys straight away. The room was very tastefully decorated, contemporary and clean, the bed was very comfortable. Other facilities include an en-suite shower/bath which I was delighted to see had plenty of nice hot water, so many hotels the water is tepid at best!

We had a very comfortable stay but did not have dinner, we did have breakfast which was excellent. Read less
Likes:
The room was lovely as were the staff, and very helpful and friendly.
The location was central.
The room rate I thought was very reasonable for the location and quality of the facilities.
Dislikes:
2 very minor grips, our room was on the ground floor in the courtyard where there were lots of tables for guests to eat and drink, so was noisy & WiFi was poor.

Likes:
The room was big enough for the three of us. The staff at the reception was helpful and friendly.
Dislikes:
Coffee for breakfast was really bad and the staff at breakfast wasn’t very friendly. Fire alarm went on twice during the night. Room above terrace, which was pretty loud till late evening.
Response from The Bear Hotel:
Hello, apologies for the alarm ringing, a guest was setting it off by smoking in his room. He was told to leave as soon as we discovered the problem but obviously the disturbance had already occurred.
