I stayed here for the 2nd time last night and it is now on the best place to stay when I am visiting Hay which is only 10 minutes away.

We were originally attracted to the hotel because, unlike many establishments we viewed, the single person in our small group was not penalised by a heavy single supplement and/or less attractive accommodation. All three of us found the hotel service, accommodation and food excellent. Rooms were comfortable and well appointed, with fine views across the Wye valley. The enormous, well... More

my boyfriend and I stayed here on a recent trip to Hay. The proprietors were amazing and we can honestly say we've never had a warmer welcome- Gerry was even thoughtful enough to put a fleece around my shoulders during dinner as the fire was out of order. Room 2 was beautiful and exceeded our expectations and the food was... More

Dear Tom and Cheryl, what a lovely review, thank you, especially as you arrived in the middle of us dealing with a chimney fire, waiting in a safe area while the fire crews did a very thorough job. I'm glad you liked your room, the warmest in the building usually as it has the chimney breast running up through! Please... More

This is a very old style country hotel, run by a great couple who work their socks off to make you feel special. The rooms are old fashioned but very very clean, the bar is great, warm and cosy. Even had an eccentric English lord present just like stepping back fifty years. Food was good and very reasonable not sure... More

It was a pleasure to return again to the Rhydspence. The comfort of the rooms and the quality and quantity of the food ensure a good visit. Paul and his staff are ever alert to one's needs and make you feel very welcome. The charm of the Inn has not diminished and I strongly recommend a visit.
