      Individual guest reviews

        Location suited us - en route to Pembrokeshire. Beautifully appointed, comfortable room and modern bathroom. Bar, lounge and restaurant all good. Plenty of parking at rear of hotel.

        Bedrooms at the front of the hotel are exposed to noise from the High Street - delivery vehicles woke us at 7.00am but any traffic passing is noticeable - no double glazing and had to keep window closed overnight to minimise disturbance from traffic.

        Location great for my purpose which was attending a party in the town. Would have also been great for shopping had I had the time. Place has great atmosphere and was very busy in all public areas. Many of the original features of the building remain which makes it quite quaint. Very spacious modern bathroom. Room warm and cosy. Despite the comments below which sound bad this was a lovely hotel and I would certainly recommend it.

        Car park is difficult to find as not signposted (or at least I did not see it as I passed it 3 times!!!) I was in a double room on the upper floor which meant lots of stairs. As it was in the roof area it has a sloping ceiling with a large beam which crossed the bed. I am only 5'4 which was fine but had any of my 6+' family been with me I think we would have had some serious headaches! Bed was comfortable but soft on the edges which caused me to roll out during night - and I was sober!!! Room was bit noisy due to a constant dripping which I believe was in the attic and the occasional tank gurgle.

        breakfast was good in nicely presented room.

        The room was not very special and for the cost I did expect more.

      • Couple

        Location is fab. Free parking and Wifi is great. Room was well decorated and spotlessly clean. Shower room was great, Bed was comfy. Hotel staff were very friendly, professional and helpful. Would defnately stay here again.

        Floorboards in room were rather squeeky so were the floorboards outside of the room and my partner did complain that he was woken up a few times in the early morning by others walking back and for outside. This wouldn't put either of us off coming back again however as it was not a big deal.

        Friendly staff, nice room well heated and the restaurant food was superb which was an added bonus

        Location was perfect as we were meeting friends for a meal in Cowbridge and didn't want to drive. The staff were very helpful and welcoming. The atmosphere was convivial. The room was small but ok for an overnight stop. The breakfast was fine.

        I found the hotel to be very clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food served was well cooked and in my opionion tasted excellent. I would definitely be happy to stay here again and to recommend the hotel to others.

        The only thing I can say is the hotel was difficult to identify due to being on a very busy main road through the town.

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        Comfortable, spacious.clean room. Good breakfast. Private parking. Convenient location in centre of Cowbridge and only a few miles from Cardiff.

        I thought it was a bit expensive.
