    A great find in Crickhowell

    We had a fabulous stay at the Bear this weekend. We went on Friday for 2 nights. Upon arrival reception staff were friendly and efficient and there was free parking outside. The room was lovely-nicely decorated, clean and modern yet traditional. It had beams but didn't look like it was so old that it was dated or dark/gloomy. Lovely log fire in pub and we ate at the restaurant both nights. Both my partner and I had different meals and starters each night (couldn't fit in dessert) and both had superb meals and wine on both occasions. Great location for country walks or just relaxing in front of the fire and chilling out. Cannot wait to return-genuinely didn't want to leave. Breakfast was also very good on both mornings. Could not recommend enough!

    Property is a little tired but this is more than made up by the friendly staff. Principal dinning room is very pleasant and food excellent for a fair price.
