The room was a nice size, clean and spacious. We didn't like the mattress, it was very soft and my husband woke up with an aching back. The hotel bar is nice and modern. The breakfast was good. I didn't like being in a separate building from the main hotel, it was raining when we were there which meant we had to run across to the main building. Also the front door of the building was not locked so anybody could get in from the back lane, we did have two keys so I'm not sure why it isn't kept locked.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Bear has origins as far back as the 12th Century, but it's best known as the inn where they changed the horses on the mail run from Cardiff to Swansea. This famous Coaching Inn is steeped in history. Nowadays, this privately owned 3 star hotel is famed for its fine home-cooked food, friendly atmosphere and really good ale. During the 18th Century, Napoleon's troops were held in the 'Bear Pit' en route to London after a failed invasion at Fishguard! The Bear rests in the heart of the Vale of Glamorgan, surrounded by beautiful rural hills. The Brecon Beacons and the Welsh Valleys are close by, with breathtaking views. Some of the Valleys still have the mining houses visible as you drive through. The hotel is on the main high street of the historic town of Cowbridge. This chic market town boasts some fabulous boutique shops, lingering walks around the Roman wall and some of the most beautiful town-houses. ... more less
