We stayed here while hiking the Offa’s Dyke Path. It’s right on the path and directly across the street from a very good pub & restaurant, the Three Tuns. With approximately 200 miles of hiking, keeping side excursions to a minimum is a must. The owners were very friendly and hospitable. Our room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Wi-Fi, with...

First time I’ve stayed in a house built in 1632. Very comfortable, great atmosphere and character. Perfect location right in town. Very friendly hosts. I greatly enjoyed the three days I spent at Rest for the Tired.

I stayed at Rest for the Tired while walking the Offa's Dyke Path with a friend last week. Conveniently located on the path itself and close to pubs and bookshops in Hay-on-Wye, it's an excellent place to stay. The owners are very friendly and hospitable, the rooms clean and comfortable and the breakfast was perfect before a hard day's walking... More

Expectation beating, family atmosphere infused, good value for money place in the prime location of Hay in Wye with the breakfast that will allow you to endure all those book hunts and treks across the Black Mountains.

My wife and I have just spent 3 super nights at Rest for the Tired, hosted by Mary & John. Their cosy B and B situated, predictably, above a lovely bookshop, chimes perfectly with the slightly other-worldly atmosphere of Hay. Full of sloping floors and solid beams this little retreat is convenient for the bookshop tour of Hay, it sets... More

Cracking little B&B dating back to 17th century. Rooms very clean & well presented. B&B ideally located for the 4 of us for our weekend of walking on Offas Dyke. Conveniently close to 2 great pubs (Three Tuns & Rose & Crown). Must admit Mary & John made us all feel very welcome, especially at breakfast. With a great breakfast,... More

Loved this B&B- great little room upstairs with lots of comfort and character. Mary and John were very friendly (I perched myself on the couch, had a nice visit and watched the British Open with John one afternoon- very pleasant). I was really happy we chose to stay in the village (which is so nice) and it seemed perfect to... More

Booked this B&B through the very helpful Joan at the information centre in Hay on Wye which was great as we had difficulty finding accommodation the previous evening elsewhere. We had a double room at the top of the stairs which was very quaint, bed very comfortable and quiet. Enjoyed a full English breakfast with another family which was great.... More

When in Hay-on-Wey you should, of course, stay on top of a bookshop. This lovely little B&B is not only perfectly situated, it is also a lovely little building with quaint little rooms in the attic with black beams and doors that makes a tall Swede bow deeply. The landlady is both charming and attentive and welcoming to both adults... More

We visited Hay on Wye to look round the bookshops and to go canoeing down the Wye which we did with much pleasure. It was not easy to find accommodation this time of year anywhere as most places have just a couple of rooms each so make sure to book here early as it is very affordable and a really... More
