Finished our walk in Hay-on-Wye and stayed at the Firs an extra night. Esther and David lovely hosts. Good breakfast, nice room with a good bathroom (though a bit small) and a good shower. Close to everything in Hay-on-Wye.

A warm welcome, clean and spacious single ensuite room, and delicious breakfasts with helpful advice about walks and restaurants in the area. I wholeheartedly recommend the Firs. Thank you Esther and David.

Visited whilst walking Offas Dyke footpath. David & Esther were very good hosts. Comfortable accommodation and well located in HOW with good parking on site. We are going back again next year and will need one of their large breakfasts to help us attack the walk up to Hay Bluff!

The Firs is a warm, friendly guest house in the heart of Hay. The proprietors David and Esther really go out of their way to make you feel welcome and at home, and bend over backwards to help out with any situation or query you have. The breakfasts are as little or much as you want, but delicious and a... More

Once again we were made very welcome by Esther and David, during the hectic hay festival. Clean accommodation and first class breakfasts. I don't know how they can keep cheerful with such a lot of work to do, but always helpful and prepared to spend time with the guests. So helpful that you are made to feel part of the... More

The Firs is in a brilliant location, right next to the biggest bookshop in Hay and within easy walking distance of the centre and its facilities. There is an excellent pub right opposite which provides great food. The rooms, shared facilities and breakfasts were all top notch with nothing falling short of expectations. We were walking Offa's Dyke and The... More

Great bike storage or car parking in central Hay - something otherwise at a premium. Shops, pubs and restaurants available within the shortest of walks. Welcoming hosts, room with fridge and tea making facilities. Old school decor. Restoring breakfast - as light as you like with prunes and yogurts, or a substantial plate of local sausage and bacon with fresh... More

Got stuck in Hay on Wye and The Firs were good enough to put us up at short notice. Being on a long bike trip, they stashed our muddy bikes happily and recommended a local pub for us to eat in. The pricing was very reasonable and the full (Welsh/English?) breakfast was very filling with lovely sourced bacon and a... More

Great location for walking into Hay on Wye Beautiful garden & terrace, great for sitting in sunshine. Most comfortable bed we've experienced away from home. Very well equipped room; fridge, bottled water, fan, hairdryer, coffee etc. Extremely welcoming and friendly couple (without being too 'in your face' or intrusive) Lovely breakfast, lots of choices. Very relaxing and comfortable. Very quiet... More
