Very disappointed in the hotel. I arrived to meet a friend for an overnight stay and a catchup. In reception I was greeted very warmly by a lovely lady who was very helpful. I was helped to our room on the top floor with my case as there were so many stairs. The room (No 15) was OK, the floor slanted but that is to be expected for a building of that age. I had been told that the room "had just been refurbished" but there were water marks and a small amount of mould on the walls. The room and the bathroom were clean and the beds were super comfortable. We ate in the hotel and I had probably the worst hamburger I have ever eaten well, less than half eaten. It was grey with bacon that looked uncooked and an overcooked egg plonked on top - the chips and the 3 onion rings were ok. My friend ordered a steak which she said was cooked to her liking and tasty. The 2 waitresses were lovely, very helpful and bent over backwards to look after us. The following morning there was a different receptionist who I found to be quite rude. I made a complaint about the burger that I had been served the night before and was met with excuses and more excuses backed up by the "kitchen manager" with more excuses. There was no apology, just them telling me why they were right and I was wrong - Rude !! Avoid this place for your own sake.…
What a lovely hotel food good staff friendly and helpful rooms nice and clean ,within walking distance of station ,excellent, would definitely recommend it,shops local and a good bus service to all areas
While visiting woodstock to see Blenheim Palace we stopped at this charming hotel for dinner. The young waitress, Gracie was very welcoming and friendly. Me and my husband had a great evening would definitely recommend!
We missed the door to number 19 on the route round but backtracked when reaching 21/22 The door looked like a cupboard with steps down into a blast from the mid 50’s Very tight packed room. Television was lower than the foot of the bed and the radio / light on the one side of the bed was straight out of the early 40’s ( which was apt as we were going to Goodwood!) the wireless didn’t work but the light did. No plug for iPhone charging next to the bed. Bathroom… well you had to hold onto the sink when on the toilet as there was quite a slope. Bath was large and not sloped and sink taps were quite different to one another. Bed was very comfortable A*** Charged for full breakfast when I only had continental Typical beautiful old inn needing much updating to get close to being re-bookable Location was fine. Didn’t get a chance to use the bar unfortunately…
Spent 2 nights, excellent service and food, rooms warm but considering outside temps in the 30's couldn't complain. I would highly recommend, friendly efficient service, helpful and accommodating. Impressive food , enjoyed all meals we had there.
The Bear Hotel smacks of history dating back to the 1700s, with nooks and crannies aplenty. There's even - reputedly - a ghost and ghostly goings on, which some visitors clamour to experience. My partner and I arrived on the hottest day of the year (so far) but the hotel reception was cool and inviting. Our room, however, was at the top of several flights of stairs - which had I known that at the time of booking, I would have requested a lower floor. However, the receptionist carried our cases up to the room for us, while we huffed and puffed our way behind her. The room was clean but in need of refreshing and refurbing and I understand that this might happen in a couple of year's time. The breakfast had all you could possibly want and was well presented and well-cooked. There is a good selection of evening meals and desserts. The friendliness of the staff is what makes The Bear stand out. A special mention for Mike Gilbert and Hannah who were good fun, remembered our drink orders, and chatted to us, especially Mike. We are looking forward to returning, remembering to request a room on the lower floor but not near the room that the ghost likes to frequent. …
Awful experience. We arrived at hotel to find room had been double booked. No apology given no help to find another hotel room anywhere. Manager became angry because i was angry that they had given away room and we had nowhere to sleep. Dont know quite what they expected. Worst experience of my life wrt booking a hotel
Drove from Spain to find that despite us contacting them this morning and them saying the room is being sorted, we arrived and the were rude to my wife and said that they had canceled our room without warning
I've stayed in quite a few places around England. And some cheaper ones, than The Bear Hotel. Have been much nicer and less basic. No way are these rooms worth anywhere near around £60.00/£70.00 a night. They clearly spend no money on maintenance of the rooms they have. My room - carpet stained, could only open window six inches, cold tap on bath would only come on if you had it on full. So it was either a third degree burn shower, or something a polar bear would enjoy. Mum's room - wardrobe door broken, window wouldn't open, pushing thirty degrees and no fan in room, huge burn in the carpet. The furniture was something that's fallen off the back of a charity shop lorry!! Can't fault the staff or the food. But everything else was well under par.
