We booked as we were visiting Hay and wanted an old country inn to stay in. When we received a letter to say that the property had been sold and would no longer do evening meals, we were disappointed but thought we would go anyway. The building is very interesting and characterful, but need some maintenance. We had booked the... More

To start with its 15 minutes from Hay on Wye in the car along a busy A road with occasional pavements, I would guess at least 45 minutes at a good pace to walk. The current owner serves only breakfast and NO other meals at all. The bar does not open until 6.30 pm and to be honest the lager... More

This is a very old and attractive building just a few minutes from Hay on Wye and just off the road. Although the decoration was a little tired looking, the room was large and the bed comfortable – I slept like a log! There were nice touches, such as complimentary bottled water in the room, nice biscuits with the tea... More

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

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
