We walked up from Hay and had tea and chocolate cake. Forget the London River Cafe. This one is far better.Full of life on the river. Hire a boat bike or scooter. Great food great place to stay. I recommend the chapel bunkhouse with is quirky slide!

Great venue. Food and beverage list had a great selection. Great location on the banks of the Wye River. Not tried the B&B facilities BUT have seen them 1st hand. Neat and tidy and priced well. Can't rate it enough. Next time we go we'll be trying out the kayaking.

We had great expectations of this B&B, but it failed to live up to them. We had expected a nice quiet location, but it is right next to a busy trunk road. The room was so hot and stuffy we had to keep the windows open for the temperature to be bearable, but that meant that we were disturbed by... More

A super place by the river. Ate outside and watched the swans and ducks on the river. A small menu but could have chosen most things. Everything we had was delicious, staff were great. A relaxed evening with good food.

I don't know quite what to say here because the ambience was fab and I couldn't fault the staff. The criticism is for lunch there isn't enough choice and I agree that a menu change is needed more often when they're only offering a handful of dishes. Looking at the evening menu it was the same with maybe 4 extra... More

Back here after a gap of 4 years and standards remain high. We had lunch of pulled pork with Texas toast and crab pappardelle. Both delicious. Dessert was chocolate and orange torte plus strawberry and rhubarb trifle. Good puds! Casual and informal with good, attentive service. Nice relaxing couple of hours to begin our Hay Festival week.

I was recently after a 2 day break in Kilvert country, with easy access to Hay for the bookshops. I just had a gut feeling this would be my kind of place. I was right. I booked 2 nights B&B and tried the restaurant on the first night. I was sufficiently impressed to return on the following night, despite the... More

Great location on the river. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and kept our room to shower after a day on the river. Food of a good standard. Recommended and good value for money overall. Close to haye on Wye (approx 5 mile Drive). Has a local pub up the road too though didn't try it. New bunkhouse looks great

We often stop here for a bite to eat. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The coffee is good and generally the food is enjoyable. We do love to sit outside and watch the river. A good place to go and beats any of the cafe s in Hay

Wonderful greeting with complimentary drink. Set the tone of the visit. Staff were young, enthusiastic and a credit to the hotel. The room was cheerful, exceptionally clean. Food was really good and good value and the breakfasts set you up for the day.
