        Restuarant staff were helpful. Breakfast was fine.

        Evening meal was poor. TV in room was old and picture quality was not good. Bathroom was in need of attention and shower went hot and cold.

        convienient location to portsmouth. Quiet position. free parking. Good full english breakfast

        Temperatue control of shower was near on impossible..either too hot or too cold..could be quite dangerous. Also central heating pipes knocking loudly...very distracting. TV reception very poor (still using analogue )

        we all had a great time. all the staff wanted to do was to please us- the service, food, menu choice and presentation of the food was one of the best we have had. many thanks to the management & staff we will be seeing you all again soon

        It's location only a short drive to the coast and other places of interest . Friendly helpful staff. Excellent breakfast. Bedlinen and towels clean and white

        Carpets and Decor tired could do with a revamp.

        7.0

        It was friendly and great for families. It was clean and the staff went out of their way to make you feel at home.

        It is in need of a make over. The decor is tired and gives the impression of being dirty which it certainly wasn't.

      • Older travelers

        The staff were very friendly and helpful, The breakfast was superb as was the evening meal we enjoyed. I particularly liked the maze of stair cases I thought it added an oldie world charm Our room was comfortable and provided all that we needed for our overnight stay.

      • Older travelers
        5.8

        Staff were friendly

        Room was in need of diy, windows did not fit, sliding door which was secondary galzing could not be secured. Due to room being next to a flat roof there was no security protection as someone could easily have climbed roof and enteried the room. "Hot Water" there was a sign warning of water but it was scalding could not have a shower without feling your skin was burning. The above is difficult due to price of room however felt the room needed to be atleast secure.

        Dining room and location good

        Room was not up to expected standards - decor shabby, carpets very worn and lumpy bed. I was in a room on the top floor which didn't even have toilet paper (or holder) which is a basic requirement. Car park is very difficult to locate if you don't know the area (narrow back street in a one way system)

        Friendly,attentive,polite staff. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Good value for money.

        please note these are not complaints but merely observations. The decoration looked very tired and dated.The lighting in the bathroom was insufficient.

        I didn't like the tv as I only had 2 channels there was the enough sugar or tea bags in the room

        Its location close to Goodwood Festival of Speed

        Because of its location in Havant, there was little alternative for an evening meal.

        The breakfast young waitress was really nice and made us feel very welcome .

        When we arrived there was a gentleman on reception with a beard dont know his name but he was very short and to the point totally unproffesional in my opinion as though he really didnt have time for us which put us of straight away had it been in the day and we had not arrived so late i would of booked elsewhere on the spot . not impressed with him at all . Everyone else was lovely

        The hotel staff were very helpful and polite. The resturant food was very good.

        I have been staying at the Bear hotel for over 25 years. On this occasion I found the general state of the whole hotel very run down, torn curtains, threadbear carpets, old dining furniture, rotting window frames. The whole place wants a complete overhaul. I will not be booking there again.

        Bear Hotel is part of an Old English Inns chain so the characteristics of these Inn are very British, Pub like hotels which I love a lot. The food is great and the staff is awesome, very friendly. Need anything just let them know and there you are served instantly.

        There should be some improvements in the bathrooms, and maybe the carpets are a little worn at the stair edge.

      • Single

        The staff very helpful and knowlagable, one stands out from the crowd, the loveley Lacey, what a pleasure it was to go to breakfast and be greated by a beaming smile, her attitude towards customers is highly regarded by a tired stressed businessman, what a pleaseure it was to stay with you and look forward to the next time.

        the hotel neads a face lift, it is looking tired, i have no doubt that Greene King will put in an effort to make the hotel more acceptable soon
