Three of us stayed here for two nights, combining some activities, walking, river stuff. The place was empty both Friday and Saturday night. Rooms ok, a bit tried and in need of some general updates. Breakfast was ok, nothing special. A big place that should have and use to be the place to go. It's now just a big empty... More

The hotel is in the centre of town, in the Bull Ring, therefore very central for everything. Our room was refurbished with a French style king size bed overlooking the Bull Ring. We had a few drinks in the bar, and the prices are reasonable, if you drink cider or the local beer, which we both drink. Breakfast was very... More

This hotel is in the Bull Ring in Hay on Wye, absolutely in the centre of town. It should be able to make the most of its location, but it doesn't. We were charged £10+ for two drinks indicating that it just charges the most it can regardless of quality. We had booked to stay the night through a booking... More

Called in to Kilverts for a beer on Saturday after having been out walking all day. Outside of London, this is without doubt the most I have ever been charged for a pint of draught Peroni lager, an eye watering £5.20! To be fair, the barmaid advised the price before serving which suggests maybe even she was embarrassed over the... More

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
