From our arrival to departure the staff were extremely attentive and provided excellent service. Our room 'Masham' was clean and beautifully decorated and very spacious with a sumptuous bathroom.

Five couples from across the country met at The White Bear this weekend for a reunion - we've known each other for forty years and get together every so often. The hotel was familiar to a couple of the guys so it was chosen as the venue. We had a lovely time. Staff were very helpful, accommodation absolutely first class,...

We were fortunate enough to have two nights at this hotel, staying in the Theakston room, a very spacious suite at the top of the building. The decor was understated and elegant with every home comfort, including a delicious homemade cake set out daily in the downstairs sitting room. The staff were very efficient and friendly, we enjoyed the company...

Absolutely loved it here. We stayed here in June 2014 for the beer festival and the room was amazing. I had my birthday meal here in February 2014 and the food was out of this world. Friends staff, great atmosphere and great selection of beer. Highly recommend you go for food when your in masham

The staff here are outstanding. They are always cheerful and very hard working. This is good management, which shows. Five stars to the staff! Very good sized room, well appointed with everything you need except for a fridge/mini bar to store your own cold drinks. A step inside the room seemed a trip hazard to me, but apparently it hasn't...
