    Can’t recommend the bear hotel enough from start to finish they have been outstanding. Months, weeks and days before the wedding they would answer any questions and solve any problem I had very promptly. The day of wedding I was getting ready in the cottage which was fabulous from the gorgeous clean rooms to the eggs, bacon, juice and much more in the fridge. They rang up in the morning asking if we needed any glasses or any help and let us know they were they if needed. They came and collected me and helped with all my bags and bridesmaids bags to take me to my bridal room. Then collected me to go down to ceremony. Both rooms reception and ceremony were outstanding. The staff I can’t compliment enough so patient qnd warming and the food was amazing. Our wedding guest wouldnt stop saying how beautiful the bear is and how wonderful the food was. Thank you so very much for making our day the most wonderful day of our lives so far. (Facebook Review)

    We had our wedding here on 9/7/16. The building is beautiful, the grounds are amazing and the staff are so friendly and welcoming. From my very first meeting with the events team I knew I had to have my wedding reception here. The food is out of this world and the St Quentins suite was perfect for our day and evening receptions. We had our top table near the folding doors so you can see the pretty courtyard in the photos behind us. In the words of one of our guests “best wedding ever!” (Facebook Review)

    Attended a friend’s wedding at the Bear staying two nights at the end of July. Had a wonderful stay with friendly staff members and a good room overlooking the hotel courtyard. I think the hotel staff made a great effort to make us feel very welcome. The venue for the wedding was excellent with a well organised staff group attending to the function. The hotel restaurant was also good with Skyla & Hannah dealing with our breakfast needs. Good bar area with pleasant seating to sit as a group or as a couple. If this sort of hotel is the type of thing you’d normally go for when visiting friends or on holiday you won’t be disappointed. Well done to all at the Bear Hotel.
