My mom and I stayed at Rest for the Tired for two nights and it was lovely. Mary was so welcoming and gave us lots of advice about where to spend our days. The b&b itself had so much charm and character and the breakfasts Mary made were delicious! We've already booked a second visit in a few months!

+ It's directly on Offa's Dyke Path. The hostess was kind and helpful. There's a common room to sit in (although we didn't) and the room was good. - The place is located close to a fish-n-chips, so the smell will drift up to your room. We also heard some clunking noise (like construction) but this might've been a one... More

Wonderful time staying in the most fabulous guesthouse. Mary the proprietor was excellent with her attentiveness, conversation and local knowledge of a great moped route over the Black Mountain Pass. Perfect biker rest stop.

the rooms we had were cosy, relaxing and there was the added bonus of use of the living room! Mary loves to chat to her guests and the shared breakfast table led to an interesting meeting with other guests. The breakfast itself was delicious, and tailored to our requirements. Lovely introduction to a fascinating and fun town.

Mary was friendly and welcomed us graciously. The room was clean, quite and spacious, with loads of charm. Lovely breakfast and a good nights sleep. They were available at short notice and it was such a find. We will be back I hope!

This place is the place to stay. I had the "attic" room and it was amazingly large! The breakfasts are great and Mary was wonderful company whilst she cooked it. I would recommend this B&B and am going to book again for November.

We arrived in Hey-on-Wye on a whim. To our delight we discovered the most beautiful village, the best country pubs, and stunning scenery. But what made our stay here most memorable was staying with the most wonderful hosts Mary and John. Mary kept us entertained with great stories and hearty breakfasts. The accommodation in the cottage was more than we... More

We stayed in this B&B for one night. it is very nice and cosy. Mary the landlord is so nice and very helpful, she took care of us, welcomed us and made us feel at home. This was our first visit to Wales and this B&B made very special. The location is great and the breakfast was amazing.

After a day of book shop browsing this cosy B&B was perfect. We stayed in the attic room which was cosy and well ventilated (summer). Steep stairs to get to room. Pubs close by for dinner.. Double bed was very comfortable and breakfast was delicious. Food grown in the village. Very pleasant hosts. Popular with hikers.
