Accommodation - Wales


Whether a rustic rural, old country estate, traditional villa or castle hotel, accommodation is carefully selected to always reflect the character and charm of the destination you are staying in. Some properties are situated in a stunning setting or have interesting historical and architectural heritage; whilst others may be chosen for their owner-hosted welcome or excellent food. Character is not a substitute for quality and comfort however and at all of our hotels you're guaranteed an en-suite, a great night's sleep and delicious food. There is a choice of twin, double or single rooms and while room sizes in older buildings may vary, each room will have its own unique style and character. Below is a selection of some of our special accommodations.

Back Roads special accommodation information is also available for England, Wales, Ireland, Croatia, Switzerland, Austria, France, Spain and Italy.


Castle Hotel

Castle Hotel, an old coaching inn, stands on the site of a Cistercian abbey and used to consist of two famous hostelries, The Castle and the 15th Century King's Head. The Castle was by far the larger and in Victorian times has had an attractive face lift of local granite and Ruabon brick and is now one of Conwy's most photographed buildings. In the 20th Century, the ownership of the Hotel was almost exclusively by London based companies and it's fitting that this wonderful old hotel reverted back to private ownership in the summer of 2000. Since then, the famous old hostelry has had a major upgrade and improvement programme and now sits proudly once again in the middle of the town and the hub of the local community

The Bear Crickhowell

The BearThe Bear is famous far and wide for its welcoming atmosphere, historic character, convivial surroundings and good food. A cobbled forecourt, archway into the inner courtyard and 19th-century stagecoach timetable in the bar are all reminders of the Bear's former role. Set in the heart of The Brecon Beacons National Park, one of Britain’s most beautiful wilderness areas, you'll find some of the finest walks in Britain with the Beacons themselves and The Black Mountains right on the doorstep.

The Bear's low-beamed bar, filled with antiques and warmed by a roaring log fire in winter, has twice won the ‘Best Pub in Britain' award. Although a building of great antiquity, dating back to1432, the Bear tastefully incorporates all modern comforts into its historic surroundings.
