We stayed here for a night on our Offa's Dyke walking holiday. We were wearily entering Hay on Wye after a long days walking hoping that our digs for the night weren't far away and suddenly there they were and what's more welcoming than having the proprietor looking out for us ! Shown a lovely room and given advice on... More

I stayed here with my partner whilst walking the offas dyke. We were given and lovely room at the front of the building over looking the highstreet. Although priced similarly to other places in Hay this room was by far the biggest and the nicest we have stayed in. The highlight of the stay however was the breakfast: a huge... More

Affordable, comfortable and spotlessly clean B&B with a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. Substantial home-cooked breakfast. It's located right in the centre of Hay-on-Wye in easy walking distance of bookshops, cafes etc. and has its own car park round the back.

Rest for the Tired is a wonderful Bed & Breakfast situated in the heart of the little town of Hay-on-Wye. The rooms are all beautifully presented and the building is a wonderful old cottage with low ceilings and beams everywhere - a very typical, quirky, quaint English cottage. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Hay on Wye

A very comfortable and well-maintained B&B. Spotlessly clean rooms - we had a very nice mini-suite. Agree with comments from previous reviewers that the age of the building means narrow and low staircases but perfectly manageable, even after 15 miles on the Offas Dyke Path. Very welcoming to walkers and we had a nice conversation with owner Mary and other... More

An enjoyable stay in a quirky and characterful building with an excellent breakfast served by characterful and welcoming hosts. The comfortable bedrooms are accessed via twisting stairs and low doorways. [So not suitable for those with mobility problems]. The location is ideal - both for the town and is on Offa's Dyke path - and it's over a bookshop so... More

I always enjoy visiting Hay on Wye and for me, RFTT is the place to stay. I have stopped there at least half a dozen times. Comfortable and very good value with ample parking around the back. RFTT is in a great location, directly above the owner's bookshop and very close to shops, pubs and restaurants. I hope to return... More

3 delightful nights - Perfect location & great hosts in the pretty town centre. Mary was extremely welcoming & very informative regarding the surrounding areas, places to visit, restaurants & book shops in the town. The national park was just a few miles away to see the wild ponies surrounded by beautiful scenery. Our room was very warm, clean, spacious... More

Had a very pleasant stay here a few weeks ago. Our room was quite large and comfortable with a good en-suite. Very pleasant hosts creating a sociable atmosphere and serving up a decent breakfast, what more do you want? Thoroughly recommended.
