on the plus side the food in the pub in the evening was good. i've stayed in many hotels over the years but this by far was the worst. we were led to believe that we would have an en suite but it was shared toilets and shared showers. we weren't allowed hot water until the landlord decided to put the emersion heater on so even though we'd been out horse riding for 6 hours during the day we had to wait till 7.45pm to have a shower. when we visited the priory restaurant nearby we learned from some locals that this was normal and they don't like to have to put the heating on or the emersion heater until they absolutely have to. the rooms are very small and chilly, we had a sink in our room but you couldn't stand up to wash as the beams were so low. the room had clearly just been decorated but it seems the decorator must have got bored half way through painting as it was half finished. the beds were solid and uncomfortable and we had to wait ages for someone to meet us at the door when we first arrived. all in all i would recommend you stay at the skirrid inn up the road or at the priory hotel, or even in a nearby camp site, you would be more comfortable and more welcomed.

i think this person is being a little unfair here our aim is to please first and formost.
We are a little B & B Charging £25.00 to £ 30.00 per person per night. the hotels the lady has said stay at cost you a lot more. Hot water is on 24/7 hrs , most of the rooms are new painted and no way have the rooms been half done. As you can see all room have a basin in yes some are in odd places but is it not better to have that not. The heating would be controled in may as at times the rooms get to hot but you can,t please every body we do have extra heaters for that reason.The beds are all checked each year to see if they are ok and as far as i know this is a first complant ? No way do we say the rooms are ensuite they are not just by looking at our web site will confirm that . The b & b entrance is a far way from our room which takes time to get to we try to be as quick as we can in getting there but it take time.
This is the first time i have heard a complaint from this person if she had raised it before we could have put right our wrongs but she never gave us the chance just hid behind the pen as to speak. We do have a vistors log and most are very happy with their stay with us this person never said anything on that also ? We are all the time trying to inprove the b & b and make things better as to make your stay great. I also have stayed in places and this is not a bad place we offer vaule for your money not rip you off.
Give us a go if your not happy talk to me we can't be fairer than that can we.

I used to go to Llanthony when I was a child so it was lovely to come back after 24yrs and found that the place had not changed. I had booked for a group of us to stay at The Half Moon. We had gone there for a weekend to go pony trekking. The rooms were clean and tidy. They do need to be updated as they are very old fashioned,they do not have en-suite but this did not worry us.The breakfasts set us up for our day of trekking. The hosts and the locals are very friendly. We had a wonderful time and we will be going back again next year

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Half Moon Hotel is set in a peaceful and secluded spot in the beautiful Black Mountains, part of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Next door to Llanthony Priory. The friendly 17th-century pub is an ideal base for walkers (we are not far from the Offas Dyke Path and on the beacons way path). We are also well situated to explore the Norman border castles, old churches and chapels of the Welsh borders. The small town of Abergavenny is 10 miles away. Hay-on-Wye 13 miles, Hereford 25 miles and Cardiff 40 miles. The Half Moon serves good food, real ales & tea & coffee, child friendly pub. We also have a beer garden for your use and dogs are welcome. Pony trekking is available close by and caters for all ages and abilities. The Half Moon is situated in an area designated as a dark sky at night location and is therefore ideal for stargazers and photographers. Our accommodation is basic due to the age of the building, but a warm welcome and good food and ale is offered to all our visitors. The Half Moon is currently undergoing a major refurbishment and therefore there is some disruption to normal service however we are working extremely hard to keep the disturbance to our guests to a minimum.
