Our rooms were a short walk from the Inn with free parking outside. You walk into a small lobby with a lounge and TV to one side, bathroom in the middle and bedroom with TV on the other side. Reception is in the main building (Bear Inn) situated by the bar so there is not a dedicated receptionist however we...

A friend and I stopped by to have lunch last week (have visited many times before - our favourite place to eat whilst visiting Clarks Village). We really had a lovely lunch! Food was freshly cooked, piping hot, very tasty and good value for money. Staff very friendly and efficient - one lady even took our order at the table...

We have stayed here several times now. And each time has been lovely. The staff here are very efficient. Helpful. Friendly and all seem to work well as a team. We stayed in room 11 and it was lovely and quiet. The decor could do with a update, the wallpaper is dark, the bed frame was broke, the room does...

I previously reviewed this place under the restaurant section as awful, and it was. However, after checkout, I had a long conversation with management, showing them photos of the room problems. The manager was appalled at my comments and he made an adjustment to our bill even tho I told them that wasn't the reason I had told them of...

The Bear Inn is a lovely place, convenient location,good food and staff are so pleasant and obliging. It is such a shame the accommodation is substandard. We stayed across the road from the Bear in Blossom Cottages, our room was in dire need of redecorating and refurbishing. Windows were dirty, cups had brown stains and pillows were very badly stained...

Hi Lynton230 Thank you for your feedback regarding the rooms. I am appalled that the cups/pillows were not up to our usual meticulous standard, and for this I will be bringing it up with our housekeepers. With regards to your comments about the rooms needing a little bit of TLC, this is absolutely on the cards for us as we...

Chose the hotel on the basis of TA reviews. Well located in the High Street right opposite the Clark's shoe museum and outlet shopping village. The room was ok but nothing special. The toilet took around 20 minutes to refill the cistern and the shower was not the strongest. The bed was fairly comfortable. Tea and coffee facilities were provided...

This is a Marston Inn, and as pub /restaurant it is excellent, with an unusual offering of a Rotisserie. Their half chicken dishes are ideal for a healthy appetite, and quarters for the smaller. You can even share a whole chook! However, the accommodation needs some work on the 'finer' points. Maintenance dept need to do a sweep of our...
