About the hotel

Located in Crickhowell in the beautiful Brecon Beacons, The Bear is famous far and wide for its welcoming atmosphere, historic character and good food. With old world charm and modern amenities, The Bear is an ideal retreat for a country break. Although a building of great antiquity - it dates back to 1432 - the Bear tastefully incorporates all modern comforts into its historic surroundings.

A cobbled forecourt, archway into the inner courtyard and 19th-century stagecoach timetable in the bar are all reminders of the Bear's former role. Popular with locals and visitors alike, the Bear is the social hub of the pretty little town of Crickhowell. Guest bedrooms within the hotel and the renovated courtyard are a continuation of the traditional character offered throughout the hotel, however rooms are infused with modern conveniences such as wireless internet and satellite television that enhance the comfort of your stay. With comfortable, relaxing furnishings and well maintained décor, rooms are ideal for a relaxing night’s rest after a full day enjoying all that the area has to offer. Disabled access is available in some Deluxe Guest Rooms. The regularly changing restaurant menu makes the most of wonderful locally sourced produce, allowing the kitchen brigade to cook dishes to the highest standard – a feat proven by the many awards won in the uk and the worldwide recognition garnered. Menus change with the seasons, as does the atmosphere of the delightful dining rooms. From intimate and cosy with open log fires for the winter to light and airy with fresh Spring flowers, the surroundings offered fit comfortably with the fine fare on offer. If guests wish to dine in the restaurant, please request a table at time of booking. The Bear's low-beamed bar, filled with antiques and toasted by a roaring log fire in winter, has twice won the ‘Best Pub in Britain' award. The warm and characterful style befits the hotel’s manner, setting the tone for the unique and whimsical atmosphere only found in such historic establishments. As would befit a bar that is recommended by CAMRA - the campaign for real ale, we hold a good variety of well kept handpulled beers. Local brews are sold whenever possible, with guest ales sold on a seasonal basis. The bar sells a large number of different vintages by the glass allowing the discerning drinker to sample a variety of wines. Set in the heart of The Brecon Beacons National Park, one of Britains most beautiful wilderness areas, you will find some of the finest walks in Britain with the Beacons themselves and The Black Mountains right on the hotel’s doorstep. Despite the colossal stature of the natural surroundings, which exude a grand sense of magnificence, the bear is just an hour’s drive from Bristol and less than an hour from Cardiff.

Old World Charm

We stayed at The bear with our dog, I requested a room near to the car park and was pleased that The Bear had allocated us a lovely and convenient room, although it was up a flight of steel steps, which my dog (& me!) found difficult in the pouring rain.

The bar and restaurant was accessible though under cover by walking through the hotel. Our room was a good size, clean and with a comfy bed and a nice bathroom. .Plenty of room for my dog's beanbag, she slept like a log.

We ate in the restaurant in the evening, the food was first class. Breakfast was good also, the waitress was friendly and attentive. The Bear is a atmospheric and interesting building, full of charm.
