Over priced However the restaurant and bar very good and staff friendly and helpful Just a very... More

We stayed here for a night for the Abergavenny Food Festival. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and went out of their way for us. The accommodation was lovely, our room was a little on the small side but I do think we booked the last one! We ate in the pub in the evening, the food was beautiful... More

Very nice accomodation and excellent food and drink and all at sensible prices. We were a little worried about parking but this turned out better than we expected. Crickhowell is a charming small town with stunning scenery all around.

We spent a lovely evening in this charming hotel. A lovely room, excellent food. Hotels situation on the edge of the Black Mountain is a beautiful place to spend time. Special mention for Jackie the Reception Manager who could not have been more welcoming!

We stayed at The Bear for our wedding night as a gift from the family. Of course we had the honeymoon suite. It was gorgeous. Quaintly decorated with old furniture, a four poster bed and a jacuzzi whirlpool bath to boot. We only got to spend a short amount of time here but we would definitely return some day in... More

My Wife and I stayed three nights in a Superior Room on a Half Board Rate.The room itself was very comfortable but overlooked the courtyard so there was noise from the kitchens both late at night and early morning.It was also very hot and we asked for a fan which was promptly delivered but it had no front cover on...

We just had the one night (complete with dog). The room had recently been refurbished (others on the process of being done) to a high standard and was excellent. Nice wide comfortable bed, telly compatible for the size of the room (we weren't cramped for space), dimmer for the main bedroom lights and spacious bathroom. Breakfast was fine and varied,... More

This charming family run hotel may not be the cheapest in the area but offers outstanding facilities and service in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park. We had a spacious beautifully decorated double room, enjoyed some wonderful meals especially the full Welsh Breakfast. Thoroughly recommend the Bear. Special mention to the charming Reception Manager Jackie - who could... More

We stay there for 2 nights, between 10 and 12 of September 2014. Everything was excellent, starting from accommodation, service restaurant and food. I recommend this place for people which they like to be into the heart of the country. Cristian Bondoc, 15.09.2014.
