          The hotel was ideally situated for our needs. It was a lovely building with beautifully kept lawns and gardens

          Some of the furnishings were quite shabby and the service, particularly at breakfast was appalling. Some of the staff would definitely have benefited from some customer service training

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          It is a very old hotel with a lot of character. There is plenty of free parking.

          There were some basic cosmetic repairs required in the room which had not been done giving a bad impression.

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          Very friendly, clean hotel with good evening meal facilities enabling us not to have to go out again once checked in

          Only problem I encountered were the stairs up to our rooms and due to poor health it would have been nice to know beforehand there was no lift. Due to lighting and the very patterned stair carpet it was not easy always to see the actual steps

          Helpful staff, good location, good food, room excellent, access easy.

          we were able to relax and feel totally comfortable. the ambiance of the hotel only served to enhance what was for us a most enjoyable weekend. the food was also excellent.

          Friendly well trained staff

          Room very tired in need of refurb. Floor so noisy, needed to take care not to disturb below and adjoining.

        • Older travelers

          The welcome from the very pleasant and efficient Indian lady from South Africa was great. Full of information and most helpful. The room was very comfortable in the annex which was quiet and with a good view. We ordered the sunday papers and room service for breakfast, as there was a wedding in the hotel the day before and the breakfast room would have been busy. A short but most enjoyable stay. We notices some excellent offers, such as the £40 per person sharing a room, for sunday luncheon with a glass of wine, sunday papers, the room and a full breakfast on the Monday morning. A consideration for next time.

          Everything was good. Being picky, the ventilator the bathroom was very noisy. The trays, both the one in the room and the one for room service were old and not particularly clean at all. All in the detail. But nothing to complain about serioulsy at all.

          The food in the restaurant was amazing.

          The staircarpet was threadbare - close to being dangerous! Our bedroom was a little shabby and in need of redecoration.

          We stayed there because it is close to the Badminton Horse trials,. We always enjoy the evening meals there. Thw location is very pleasant situated on Rodborough Common.

          Dining

          Bedroom was sorely in need of redecorating - furnishings were dated & the room was up a staircase with a threadbare verging on dangerous carpet - for these reasons I don't consider our stay to represent good value for money

          Excellent staff

          The room was too warm. There was no wireless internet facilities.

          Conveniently situated for our visit in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

          We loved the William Morris decor and the breakfasts were fabulous.

          we were desgusted with the service in The Grizzly Bar, the first evening we ordered gammon off the bar menu and the chips were barely warm and totally aundercooked and the gammon was also undercooked with rind still on and curled up. The second night we thought that we would risk a sandwich and were told that we would have to wait over an hour, we ordered a drink and then the barmaid proceeded to put the football on the T V after a request from another client, that meant that most people in the bar had to go to the lounge where the pub atmosphere was obviously lacking. We would not stay at The Bear again for these two simple reasons.

        • Group of friends
          6.6

          A superb location with easy access to countryside walks .Quiet and restful with little passing traffic and excellent views. .

          No guarantee for residents to enjoy meal in main restaurant. Little urgency when we reported that our room on 3rd floor did not have any hot water.
