My partner and I have been regular guests at the Rest for the Tired for many years. It is a delightful B&B in a brilliant location. Mary, the owner, provides good quality traditional accommodation, a generous and tasty breakfast, and a friendly welcome. The location is ideal for a visitor to Hay - very close to the book shops, cafes...

This was my second visit to Rest For The Tired and it was great. True to the name, it offered as rest for the tired - I had walked 18 miles over the Black Mountain from Pandy that day, with a couple of friends. Really friendly, clean, welcoming, well-situated, and restful. Can't recommend it enough and look forward to visiting...

I love this place. I have stayed here twice now. It is a wonderful, relaxing old building with wooden beams, big comfortable beds and Mary's lovely breakfasts! I am coming back here soon. And it is above a bookshop. You can't beat that!

Our visit coincided with the winter festival which we couldn't have timed any better. The town was busy, the Christmas light magical and the bookshops to die for. Our accommodation was wonderful, the whole place was clean, warm and inviting. All the rooms have oak beams and as you would expect with a building of its age sloping floors which...

My mother and I stayed at Rest for the Tired for two nights in September and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our twin room on the second floor was comfortable and quiet (despite overlooking the street), with the individual character that only comes from an old building. We chose Rest for the Tired partly for its convenient location and partly for...

We stayed for 2 nights and could have stayed longer. Our room was located just above the fish & chip shop beside the bookshop. This didn't inconvenience our stay in any way. There were 3 of us and we still had lots of space in our rooms. In fact the bathroom was huge. The room was very clean and tidy...

We were attending a wedding in Haye and spent the night at this B&B. We had a room in the old stable block (i think) and it was a really good size room and bathroom, clean, and we had a great nights sleep. Breakfast in the morning was yummy and we couldn't have asked for a better hostess, who kept...

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...

“There are four rooms: two upstairs, one of which has a door suitable for hobbits, one through the kitchen (where I stayed this time) and another one that I have not seen. I would stop in any of them. The owners also have a holiday cottage next door, so for longer stays it may be worth asking them about that.”
