The Bear in Crickhowell has been a resting place for travellers and a meeting place for friends since 1432. An historic and atmospheric coaching inn, The Bear offers a warm welcome, whether you are exploring the beautiful Brecon Beacons, or wanting to eat great food and drink in comfortable surroundings.


You can stay in oak-beamed bedrooms at The Bear, just as stagecoach passengers did. Or sleep in more modern rooms in our converted stable block. You can relax in a spa bath or four poster bed. We have rooms for every occasion and every budget at The Bear.


Eat at The Bear and sample a wide menu of beautifully cooked local foods, with traditional tastes mingling with modern dishes. Dine surrounded by chatter and laughter in the bar, in the more intimate candle-lit surroundings of our table-service restaurants, or amongst the floral displays in our summer gardens.


Nestled between the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons, The Bear Hotel has been a drinking place for locals for centuries. Visit our cosy bars, with their oak beams, open fires and wooden floors and you’ll be given a warm Welsh welcome and soon forget you are only two hours from London, an hour from Cardiff or Bristol.
