    Cozy and Nice place with free wifi and access to gym, inhouse Dining and good selection of breakfast however the place itself seemed a bit worn out. Bring your own hair dryer and request a room away from the street.

    Stayed only the one night in Cowbridge and in this charming hotel. Lots of parking at the back with ease and staff services were fantastic. We had dinner in the restaurant and totally spoilt for choice. All in all a very pleasant stay.

    Hotel has improved greatly from previous stays. Refurbished bedrooms are lovely, with super bathrooms. Staff are welcoming and very helpful. Just need to tweak breakfast by better choice on continental buffet and self-service coffee machine would be a vast improvement!
