Reviewed November 14, 2013

Run by nice people who are willing to make the effort to look after their guests.
Big room, spotless throughout.
Superb home cooked food.
Lovely lounge.
WTB, what more do you need to know ?

PS : There are a couple of dodgy looklng reviews and it made us wonder if we would find "issues" ? Worry-ye-not : we would be happy to return and this recommendation is truthful.

We started off badly at this Inn, I was to confirm if some friends would stay for an evening meal and due to uncertainty, I didn't. I assumed as we did not confirm, no special treatment or preparation was required. At first we thought the admonishment on arrival was in jest, however, we never recovered and managed to get a few more. There were plenty of other guests who seemed very happy with the unusual customer service but we felt a little uncomfortable. On the plus side the breakfast was excellent, the bathrooms very modern and the hotel was clean and tidy.

We stayed overnight in september when there appeared to be only 2 other rooms let. Our request to have dinner at 8pm was not welcomed or allowed for some reason as it was 'late' ?? We managed to compromise at 7.45pm. Other trivial requests we were again made to feel awkward about, eg taking our drinks through to another bar- at one stage we were told 'that when you are in my house you will do as you are told' Feeble attempt at a jest but in view of other comments was not too funny in retrospect.
The deciding incident which determined that we would never return or indeed recommend that place happened when we were eating dinner. We had 2 bottles of Pinot Grigio, then asked for a third. The landlord duly produced a third bottle & said that seemed he had made a mistake & that this bottle was Pinot Gris, we asked whether it was the same & he said yes. Our bill, which we did not examine until we had long left, being pretty trusting, listed the first 2 bottles cost us £16.50 & the third 'his mistake' cost us £22.
In their favour the rooms were very clean & traditionally furnished.

We had a energetic walk up Pen e fan in the Brecon Beacons, tired to our bones and had a lousy lunch as some random hotel in Brecon, and were ever so grateful and pleasantly surprised when we turned up at this hotel - about 25 mins from Brecon. The hosts were very warm and welcoming, and the rooms were gorgeous! mine in particular (room no.5), was massive with a lovely en-suite. They have an in house restaurant and bar too, so we dined that evening in style. Great food! This was an old coaching house, so it has oodles of character. Beautifully manicured lawn, and outdoor area to sit and have a drink. Wish we were there longer than one night!

Room Tip: Pick room no.5!

We stop here for coffee on our way to our annual holiday in Wales, and have been doing so for about 4/5 years now. We always get such a wonderful welcome, excellent and plentiful coffee and delicious Welsh Cakes. Thank you.

We stayed 1 night while travelling through. Our room was lovely and very comfortable, overlooking the garden. We had dinner there which was well cooked as was breakfast. Perfect hosts who work very hard - very friendly. There's not a lot else in the village but Hay on Wye is a short drive.
