    An excellent town to stay and the Bear Hotel could not be faulted. Very friendly, polite and well informed staff in an hotel with character, immaculately maintained and in a great position for exploring the South Wales coast. Very good value all round.

    My family and I stayed here for the weekend of my wedding at Castle Coch. It was perfect from start to finish, staff were incredible and we were made to feel very relaxed and comfortable. Would highly recommend.
