Great location for walking into Hay on Wye Beautiful garden & terrace, great for sitting in sunshine. Most comfortable bed we've experienced away from home. Very well equipped room; fridge, bottled water, fan, hairdryer, coffee etc. Extremely welcoming and friendly couple (without being too 'in your face' or intrusive) Lovely breakfast, lots of choices. Very relaxing and comfortable. Very quiet... More

My sister and I stayed here last weekend as we were meeting up with some friends. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The location was perfect, in the heart of the town, and sitting behind the cinema book shop away from the main road. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast delicious. Who needs an...

We spent three nights in comfy rooms with very friendly, helpful hosts! It's very convenient for walking around Hay. It's also an easy walk to the laundrette if needed. The breakfast was first class!!!!

I stayed at The Firs with my boyfriend and his best friend. The hosts gave us two separate rooms, which was a (welcome) first, as most of our stays at hotels and BnBs gave us "family style" rooms. The bed was comfy, the room was clean, and the host was very patient with my phone calls, as we were quite... More

Many of the other reviews seem to be from repeat visitors. This was my first visit, but I am in wholehearted agreement...a very comfortable, welcoming experience. I especially enjoyed the mini-fridge with cold water, very welcome after a warmish afternoon. The hosts were very helpful and their recommendations right on target. Another plus for walkers is the location, very close... More

After nearly ten years of staying with David and Esther during the Hay Festival we have come to know them really well. Each year they somehow manage to improve the service and the location right in the heart of the village could not be better. The breakfast is great - such nice bacon and with all the trimmings. Rooms clean... More

David and Esther welcome you as one of the family. Nothing seems to be too much bother, despite our visit being in the busy Hay festival week. The breakfasts are served efficiently and plentiful. Rooms are clean and well equipped. We left very happy and contented (once again) and are booked in for next year..

A warm welcome; a lovely room; a fantastic breakfast; a lovely tranquil garden.. No-one could ask for more in this lovely B&B. Older reviews of this establishment have made comments about the carpet. Why for goodness sake? It's a carpet; it's clean and it's functional. You are not going to sleep on it. I've stayed in many a B&B and... More

David and Esther were exceptional hosts. I could not have asked for a more welcoming and friendly reception. Parking facilities excellent, peaceful surroundings yet close to ameneties , rooms were clean and well equiped and hearty breakfasts to set you up for the day. Kind regards Liz ☺

I received a very warm welcome at The Firs. The room was very clean and airy and the hosts friendly and helpful. The garden is a lovely place to relax in and the breakfast was 1st class too.
