“Pleasant stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2005

We spent two nights here while visiting relatives staying in the neighbourhood. We had booked bed and breakfast and in fact the dining room and bistro were closed during our stay and we were the only guests. The welcome and the inside of the hotel were very good, although the outside looked a little neglected, with the garden in particular needing attention. Staff were attentive and very helpful, and the cooked breakfast was excellent. We were a little disconcerted by the negative reviews, but our own experience was positive.

A party of us dined at the Three Cocks recently and were treated to an evening of Fawlty Towers without the laughs. The food was very average and the service shambolic. In other circumstances we might have found this quaint and tolerated it. However, when we found all of our wine had an unpleasant sediment in five of the six glasses poured, we sent it back and did not get a replacement until after we had finished our main course. It was clear they had no intention of replacing it until we pushed the point. The spoilt wine was left in glasses on the table for us to admire for the rest of the evening. When four of our puddings came with cream which was off, we sent these back, only to be told that in the strongest terms, in front of the rest of the dining room, that we obviously didn't know what we were eating and that the cream was fresh. At the end of the meal we were presented with a bill which included the spoiled wine (£18.95) and all the puddings we had sent back. We were then treated to another argument in the bar in front of the rest of the clientele who had missed the one in the restaurant. Being relatively local, but with a party who had come from London to stay in Hay, I was angered and embarassed that we had wasted our time giving this place a chance.

Restaurant food was adequate, but please don't stay here is you intend to stay out any later than 12 am as keys will not be given out.

We attended a party at Baskerville Hall. We were told to phone when we wanted to return to our rooms but at 3am the phone was not answered. We had to wait until 7am to get back into the hotel and were then told that we could only return to our rooms to collect our bags but could not go to bed. I would not recommend this hotel at all.

Amazing hotel!!! Spent a few wonderful days here sipping whisky next to an open fire, before having some of the most amazing food I have ever tasted in the restaurant - cannot recommend enough. Hay-on-Wye is an wonderful town aswell with 39 bookshops.
