"Restaurant area was nice but the rooms and other communal areas a let down and need modernising"
Bed was uncomfortable. Window did not close properly which was loud as we were room 19 so on the main road. The shower pressure was awful. Found clumps of hair on the floor which was disgusting. Communal hallways smelled and weren't very inviting. Breakfast should be served downstairs. Read less
Likes:
Location was good and the building is pretty on outside.
Dislikes:
The rooms need updating. Breakfast is basic.
Response from The Bear Hotel:
Room 19 has just been refurbished. The room is not on what i would call a main road but yes on a road...we are a town centre hotel..so there will be some noise. Generally we get complimented on our beds and are often asked for the details so the guest can buy one themselves. Breakfast is not what i would call basic. We are a 3 star hotel in the middle of a market town...perhaps you should have booked something more 5 star.

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

The 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.

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
