Lovely place to stay, 15 minutes walk to the heart of Bath. Our room was great, and surprisingly quiet, seeing as it's above a pub. Comfy bed and everything we needed. Really good food and the service was just as good. Staff are great. Well worth a visit!

The Bear proved to be a great choice for a short break with my husband recently. It’s around 15 minutes from the centre of Bath and the food was very good. It’s good value for money and the B&B staff were all very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, spacious and well equipped.

The Bear is great, 10 to 15 minute walk into Bath but on a bus route if you don't like to walk. We had a friendly welcome, all the staff were excellent and provided good service. We loved our room, modern and quite minimal with a great hospitality tray. After a busy day out we returned and had a lovely meal plus a few drinks. Breakfast too was delicious. We would be happy to return and can recommend.
