This hotel is a mix of old & modern. The rooms are excellent clean & well serviced. Bathrooms are modern & shower was superb. We ate in the restaurant & the food was excellent, nice bar & a very comfortable lounge. Outside there is a grassed area with seats & also a patio area where you can sit. The owners... More

The hotel is well located 8 miles from Hay on Wye and pretty much at the gateway to the Brecon Beacons. The hotel itself is an attractive old building with very well presented rooms, which were very clean and comfortable. Our room had an excellent en-suite bathroom with a great shower that had both power and heat. The beds were... More

The Three Cocks Hotel is an old coaching inn. The old beams and large fire places give it a warm atmosphere. Our room was charmingly quirky with sloping floor and an odd-shaped door and the bathroom furniture was modern and of high quality. We slept well in a very comfortable bed. The owners were very attentive, almost verging on intrusive,... More

We stayed here as we couldn't get a booking in Hay itself, but what a great find. Lovely hotel, spotlessly clean. Good mix of old world charm with mod cons. Delicious breakfast with local produce. We didn't eat in the restaurant but based on the breakfast food was superb. Roy the owner gave us a history of the place -... More

This simple country hotel and pub has nice clean rooms and is run by a very agreeable and friendly couple. Dinner and breakfast was very good. Location is excellent for exploring the area around Brecon

It tries hard, for sure. There's a lot of cash gone into a renovation since the last owners passed it on. There's a lovely private lounge, too, but somehow the effect is of a well managed old folks' home. It would be unkind to comment on individual staff, but the charming young women serving in the restaurant aren't even empowered... More

Very clean, very comfortable and most interesting conversation with Roy as a fellow innkeeper. Hope to be back and try dinner as well. This was convenient for our visit to Hay-on-Wye and Roy gave us lots of good information for the rest of our trip.

So rare these days to find a lovely old inn with all mod cons. Wonderful bathroom and comfy bed. The food was excellent, really top notch. Lovely hosts working so very hard to keep the place spotlessly clean and welcoming. Lovely and warm in every way. Treat yourselves. ..it's great value for money.

My wife and I stayed last weekend as our usual pub was closed. The Three Cocks turned out to be a real find. Very clean and well run, we were well looked after and enjoyed an excellent evening meal. The breakfast the next morning was truly heroic. It was delicious and not greasy. The prices were sensible and we left... More

The Three Cocks was spotlessly clean. Roy, Judith and the staff were friendly and attentive hosts, the room was warm and well furnished with toiletries, tea and coffee. No TV in room - great! Lovely real fires, cosy bar. More formal restaurant with a gorgeous breakfast. An absolute delight to stay here.
