“Give it a go! :)”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Have passed the Portway Inn several times and thought must try that sometime. Well today was the day when we called by for a spot of Sunday lunch. Arrived just after 2pm (serving 12 - 2.30) Offered the option to eat in the lounge or the restaurant, and chose the lounge by the huge fireplace. The Sunday lunch menu had a good choice of starters, a choice of four mains and three desserts. Starters chosen were the Broccoli and Stilton soup which came with some fresh bread (most of which is made onsite) plus a pot of butter, and Red Thai Salmon fishcakes with a sweet chilli sauce. Both were delicious. This was followed by well presented plates of Roast Lamb with roast potatoes,roast parsnips and four other veg cooked just right, and a yorkshire pudding (yes I know it's supposed to go with beef but who doesn't love yorkshire pud with gravy?) The desserts (all homemade) were just the right size after such a tasty main, a light Cherry Creme brulee with homemade shortbread biscuits and a rich chocolate fudge cake with pouring cream (the cream came in a jug which is preferable as then you can add it according to your taste). Overall, the meal itself was lovely, the staff, including the owner, were friendly and attentive and the price certainly isn't going to make a hole in your pocket in these economic times. The 3 courses came to £12.99 each and if you were to have two courses or just one then obviously cheaper. Adding a couple of drinks and two lattes brought the bill to £35 which for two is not bad. Go on give it a go, you know you want to.. :)

We have had lunch at this Inn several times in the past year.The food has always been of a high standard but durlng the past few weeks following the arrival of the new Chef the menu has been extended and the quality is now superb.The Portway Inn should be more widely known.

This is a fabulously located Inn and my partner and I stayed for one night. We had a superb room in a separate building out the back of the inn. Generously sized and with very comfortable bed.The staff were enormously helpful and friendly and we were made to feel very welcome. The food was outstanding and the service very attentive. In fact the only downside of our stay, aside from the weather being poor was that the shower in the room didn't work properly. Either scalding hot or freezing cold with the temperature gauge not appearing to work.

This slightly took the gloss off our stay as we wanted to shower immediately before departure. However other than that, The Portway Inn is highly recommended.

Just spent two nights at the Portway Inn. Room was good, having everything you would expect. Clean and tidy and looked like it had been recently refurbished. We had a double room, however there are bigger rooms available which are worth the extra, if you want a bit more room. Our room was towards the rear of the place so road noise not an issue. We had meals in the bar on both nights which were excellent, try the home made pies and get the roasted veg to go with them. Breakfast again excellent and on all occasions the staff were polite, friendly and helpful. Overall a great place to stay and eat.

My wife and I treated ourselves to an over night at this charming cosy inn. On arrival we where shown to our room located directly above the bar ( very noisy beware...) l spoke to the receptionist who seemed to expect a request was on the way. She directed us to another quieter room at the back of inn. Oak beams , a bath and a king-size bed in the wonderful suite upgrade.....very nice thank you!. Breakfast was perfect , served with a smile and to perfection . Some attention to detail I think would make this Inn an absolute winner....more hot water please......matching carpet in the bedroom and living area would a simple but very effective touch to the stylish suite.The garden area outside the suite rooms could do with a tidy and clean up and would compliment the otherwise well maintained lawns. Overall without wanting to be too critical the Portway Inn was 85% lovely. Service 10/10, great staff who know what to do and how to look after you.

My husband and I decided to take our 10 month old labradoodle away for his first weekend break and were delighted to be welcomed at The Portway. The staff were extremely helpful and provided the best customer service we have experienced in this country. We were all made to feel genuinely welcome.
We ate in the bar on Friday and Saturday evening and enjoyed the excellent food, wine and real ale. Saturday evening was quite busy with the locals watching the rugby game but this just added to the atmosphere. Everyone made a fuss of the dog which obviously pleased him and helped us to relax.
Our room was the superior double which has been well appointed and was very comfortable.
The Portway is conveniently located close to Hay on Wye, Ross on Wye and Hereford. A great place to stay and I would recommend it to others, particularly if taking your pet.

One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. Staff were extremely welcoming and hospitable - nothing was too much trouble for them The bed was very comfortable - the room was spotlessly clean and so cosy. The oak beams and brasses in the bar gave it an olde worlde feel; the warming log fire only added to the atmosphere. We were in for a treat the night we stayed there: the Hereford Rail Male Voice Choir popped in for a pint after a gig and kept us thoroughly entertained with their singing. Food was impeccable...really high quality and really good value. The choice for breakfast was a revelation: there wasn't only your typical fry up on offer - I chose smoked haddock with a poached egg which was sublime!
I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel - fantastic!
