As much as I love the Nolan films, Bale's performance never really blew me away, and at times was laughable. His performance as Bruce Wayne was fine, but when he tried to do the Batman voice and yell at villains it totally took me out of the movie.
I think Clooney probably had the Bruce Wayne playboy persona down best, though unfortunately it was in a terrible film. It would have been nice to see how he would have handled the character in a proper Batman film and not an Ice Capades show.
Kilmer was utterly forgettable.
Overall though, I think Keaton had the best combination of the Bruce Wayne and Batman personas, and gave a fantastic performance. I prefer the Nolan films over the Burton ones by a great margin despite loving the first Batman film (not so much Returns, though), but he retains the edge as Batman for me.
That's my opinion as well, except weird as it was, I still love Burton's vision of Batman (and especially his Gotham City), so Nolan is ahead only by a small margin in my view.
