    We spent our wedding night here 24 years ago and although we live local wanted to return. The staff were friendly and attentive, helping to make our stay memorable with additional touches and positively responding to my requests.

    We often call in for lunch unfortunately we just missed lunch today, this is a very nice place with a good range of drinks. Today there was a wedding with most of the quests sitting outside in the lovely beer garden.

    I recently stayed in the hotel as I was attending a local wedding. The room was really comfortable with proper pillows. The bar is friendly and welcoming and it has a pretty courtyard with seating. Breakfast was a hearty meal.

    Excellent service and accommodation, location is ideal for Cardiff and beach areas. Welcoming staff and quality of food. Perhaps not for younger set, certainly for mature age. Cowbridge is a lovely market town with a good variety of shops. Will definitely come back and stay.
