"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.

"Staff attitude lets the management down"
I stayed 1 night on business. Chose the Bear as it was recommended to me by a colleague. I had an evening meal in the restaurant, stayed the night, had breakfast and left. Didn't need much interaction with staff but was let down.
Welcome greeting when I arrived (no issues), went for food when the service was lacking. Waiting on staff had no interest in being there or knowing what they had to offer. Went to bed an sleep was plesent, Shower hard to regulate. Breakfast lacked welcome.Disappointing Read less

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...Please ensure you book in advance should you wish to dine with us.
