The Bear Hotel, Esher
Very Good8.0
I think we went at a bad time.
We received a wonderful welcome and having stayed here before we were not surprised by the comfort and great surroundings. We stayed the night following Ladies Day at the nearby Sandown Racecourse. Because of the event the pub/hotel was busy and breakfast was not to the normal standard. There was no fruit, no toast and a poorly cooked fry up. It was served by a waitress who totally ignored requests for sauces etc. Her attitude was matched by the guy at checkout who clearly has never been taught how to smile and provide customer service. This was just such a shame as we know how good The Bear can be and as previously mentioned, the wonderful welcome we received. I can only think because they were so busy they ended up having temporary staff who were just not up to scratch. I'm confident we will stay again, but will check the race course schedule next time!

Definitely one to try
Lovely little pub/hotel, cosy bar, very friendly and helpful staff, fabulous food. Car parking was handy. Room surprisingly quiet, being I was situated at the front which is right onto the main street. Room spacious, nice tea & coffee, the mini bar is a nice touch. Bathroom very clean and no issues with hot water. The only (constructive) criticism I would have is that, although I understand the low lighting to give the room ambience and to feel cosy away from home, it is NOT conducive to women applying make up and doing their hair! There isn't a proper light in the room - just 3 lamps all with a reduced glow. The light in the bathroom is fine but you can't see properly because of the sink getting in the way of the mirror. It's not just this hotel - a huge majority of the ones I stay in are like this and many other female travellers have the same gripe. Anyway, a small matter for the owners to take up. Overall a fab little place and I will definitely book again if in the area. The breakfast was so huge, I couldn't eat it all and didn't eat for the rest of the day! Thumbs up for taste and quality.

Very pleasant pub with rooms
This was a 1 night stay for my wife and I whilst we went to Sandown races. The hotel/pub was very comfortable with friendly helpful staff & a good range of beers. Breakfast was excellent. Not cheap but good value.

Good value pub hotel
I was on a business trip and The Bear was a great choice, friendly atmosphere, good food and nice bar. But remember it is a pub so there was noise coming up from the bar until quite late.
