Make friends
at The Bear

We often describe The Bear Hotel as “a melting pot”, where people from all walks of life come together to have a great time.
We think of all of these people as “Friends of The Bear” and when friends get together.

A great night’s sleep at The Bear

Step into one of our 35 unique rooms, and you’ll feel instantly at home. Each bedroom is unique and immaculately furnished with locally inspired artworks. Our rooms feature luxurious bedding, fragrant amenities and sprung mattresses – to ensure that you get the sleep that dreams are made of.

Guests can stay in oak-beamed rooms just as stagecoach passengers did or in more modern suites, some with spa baths.
Rooms you can’t
wait to get into

You’ll fall into bed with our selection of lovingly crafted bedrooms.

All our rooms are simply delightful, and you’ll be sure to enjoy a restful night’s sleep in whichever room you choose.
The choice is yours. One thing you can be sure of is a great night’s sleep.

All of this in the charming town of Crickhowell, surrounded by the stunning scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park, yet just over two hours from London and around an hour from Bristol, Cardiff, Swansea or Birmingham.
