      lovely lovely hotel with good staff, good facilities and very good rooms

    • Group of friends

      The menu is far too elaborate and evening meals are on the expensive side - £14.95 for fish and chips!

    • Older travelers

      Clean and warm room and en-suite as described; quality bed linen. Straighforward staff, help when we asked and there when needed, otherwise did not bother us. Stayed there once before years ago and decided to re-visit. Would now do so again.

      We liked it. The weather was awful torrential rain - but was made worse by blocked/overflowing gutters and drains, and big puddles in uneven surfaces.

      Having lived in Hungerford all my life, its not until now that I have had the necessity to stay at the Bear - I now live in Devon. Having had a family wedding, a golden wedding celebration and two wakes there, I was excited to have the opportunity, and was very pleased with our stay there while visiting family. Very comfortable room, great breakfast and a very good price. I would definitely stay there again and its dog friendly - tho we didnt take our dogs this time.

      Did not explore the area as It was just an over night stay visiting friends and we found the room very nice. Had one drink in the bar and the staff were very accomodating.

    • Single

      The whole hotel was excellent value for money, whilst being 5 star

    • Group of friends

      i) Slow response of Breakfast staff when told that some food needed replenishing. I had to wait 15 mins for sausages & beans after staff had been told 3 times. Ii) Had to wait 1 hour for a taxi and Reception staff appeared unable to understand my frustration at their inactivity.

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      The peace and quiet of the room in Bear Island and the lovely view from the window.

      Not keen on the menu for dinner so eat out at a different hotel in Hungerford.

    • Older travelers

      River Dun right outside the window - like right up against the wall! History - William of Orange was there, James I made it his headquarters during 2nd Battle of Newbury, King Henry VIII owned it, etc, etc. Room was comfortable, service excellent.

      Bed was king-size made up of 2 beds pushed together, which means slight ridge in centre - wasn;t too bad though. No fridge in room, but it was only a standard room.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      The food and service was excellent as was the room. Definitely stay again.

      The receptionist appeared miserable and unhelpful on arrival giving us the wrong impression of the hotel.

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      the room was excellent and the staff were friendly and attentive. Food was good and especially the breakfasts

      Slightly expensive. Expected the food to be better than it was.

    • Older travelers
      5.0

      The Room.Comfortable,clean and quiet.Excellent bathroom,spacious,good shower and plenty of hot water.But,thats it!

      Receptionist and barman,serious attitude problems.Hotel would have been better advised to close over the christmas period.Christmas day eve,lights out,log fire out.Awful.

    • Older travelers
      5.8

      Reception staff were poor and if one was allocated a room on the road side of the hotel, traffic started from 6.30

    • Single
      9.2

      I was made very welcome by the staff. I found the hotel to be up-to-date without losing that essential 'Englishness' of an old building, wherein lies its charm.

      One had to get used to being housed in the old coaching stables which meant having to go outside in order to get to the main hotel facilities like the bar and dining room etc.

    • Single
      9.2

      My room was very comfortable and overlooked a babbling brook which was really lovely I would love to go back in the summer

      The complimentary drinks were basic a hot chocolate drink and a variety of teas as well as a biscuit would have been very welcome
