We stayed at this hotel for one night to celebrate our anniversary. The good things about it are it's in the middle of Hay on Wye which has a lovely atmosphere and interesting shops. It sells some good beer and cider. The room was full of character with original beams and the bath had a jucuzzi in it which was... More

This was clearly a good 'local' but also used by tourists. The locals were very friendly including you in their banter. There was a good selection of beers & ciders and the barman, in particular, was very adept at serving more than one person at once which was very helpful when a large group arrived and were having trouble deciding...

We booked a last minute overnight stay here, the only available accomodation was the Garden Suite, quite pricey, but we took it. It's hard to know where to start, so positives first. Great location, right in the centre of Hay on Wye, easy stroll to nearby Tapas Bar and other resaurant pubs. Friendly landlord, good size bedroom and comfy bed,... More

My boyfriend and I decided to spend couple of nights in Wales right near Hay on Wye. Unfortunately we had a terrible experience so we decided to visit the village which was only 2 miles away. We were lucky enough to walk into the pub full of awesome and friendly people and later decided to stay in the hotel. Had... More

This was a trip down memory lane, we lived in Hay nearly 30 years ago and had a party to celebrate our wedding in Kilverts Hotel. Then it was newly refurbished and the epicentre of local life, it is just about bang in the centre of the town. It is now looking quite jaded and needs a bit of a... More

Great location for visiting Hay on Wye, but the Inn is pretty run down and understaffed. Bar was very busy when we arrived so had to wait several minutes for someone to check us in, Our room was small but clean but noisy at night mainly due to social club opposite. Breakfast was almost inedible. Wouldn't stay there again on... More

Newly refurbished bathroom - nice but rails kept falling off walls, and handle was broke on door. The lock to our room was no working properly - loose and... More

Kiverts was a good place to stay, drink, relax, enjoy the beer garden and have food... now the beer garden is a wreck... the place is run down and untidy ... the atmosphere has diminished... the staff are not well trained.... what a shame ... the good point is the range of beers on tap but they are expensive ......

Kilverts occupies probably the best location in Hay - bang in the centre in a little square with parking right outside, and until the current family took over, I believe some seven years ago, it was one of the most popular locations in the town with both visitors and locals alike. Since then however it's been downhill all the way,... More

A hotel situated in the Bull - Ring in the heart of Hay-on-Wye. With a 50+ seat restaurant, 40sqm marquee and the largest beer garden in Hay, it is a thriving place in summer and a beautiful tranquil get-away in the off season. Run by the Davies family, a more relaxed, comfortable and friendly place could prove hard to find. Dogs allowed. ... more   less
