Good Hotel Guide Review

On the High Street of a fashionable market town in the Vale of Glamorgan, this well-located hotel has been a lively hub for centuries. It was once a stopover for mail coaches running between Swansea and Cardiff; today, it remains popular with locals and tourists who drop in for its real ales, hale-and-hearty pub food and well-appointed bedrooms. Modern rooms vary in size (some suit a family), but all have tea, coffee, Welsh toiletries and individual charm. Eat wherever you fancy: in the bar, lounge, courtyard or Cellars dining room, there’s much choice on the local-produce-packed menu. Buffet breakfasts.
