Having stayed here many times for business, I was pleased I would be paying another visit to this fine Hotel. We always choose this hotel as its easiest the best in Cowbridge. The car park easily accommodates my large van. Also its free to park and secure too. We was checked in by "Chrissie" (i think that was her name,very pretty) who took care of our payments and told us of a great chinese restaurant to eat. My room was massive with a nice en-suite, It was always clean and tidy on my return each day. Chrissie also sorted out my SKY sports channels on my tv.
Breakfast was always fresh and served fast. Try the scrambled eggs.
The bar area was always busy, food served there was tasty and quite reasonable.
Check out the Leisure center at the rear, well equipped gym.
The Bear Hotel is ideally situated in the middle of Cowbridge, which features some fantastic places to eat and some great pubs too.

Room Tip: For better wifi, ask for rooms over courtyard. Room 5 is the comfiest but no wifi at all.

We regularly visit the Bear for Sunday lunch. At £8.95 main course its such good value. The quality of the meat and the veg is excellent. Sometimes there is a wait for a table in the bar but when you know the food is so good it doesn't matter. Keep it up please

Stayed here following a birthday celebration of a dear friend. The three course meal organised by our friends for 80 people was exceptional, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Our room ( no14) was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was much better than average. I would recommend this hotel without exception.

I stayed at this hotel already a number of times for business reasons. The hotel is nice and small, and offers a good value for price. The staff is very friendly and makes you feel welcome.

The hotel is well located in the main street of Cowbridge, and a big parking is available just behind the hotel...

The rooms are not very big, but clean. The hotel bar is nice, and the food is great. The menu changes on a regular basis, and every day they offer some 'specials of the day'.

One advice: when you book a room, ask for a room in the back part of the hotel; rooms at the main street can be quite noisy...

Stayed here for a wedding - not been to the area before - but we will be back.
The hotel put on an excellent wedding - lovely food and nice breakfasts.
The residents bar was also appreciated.

Room was vast with all mod cons - TV reception wasnt up to much but why go away if you just want to watch the TV ?

We were in an annex at the back - so you did have to go out in the rain to get there - but only for 30 seconds or so.

Cowbridge itself was a nice place to spend a few days.
