Although the room was clean, the facilities are outdated and lack the basics. The bathroom looked as if it hadn't been updated for at least 30 years, there was no shower or mixer tap so no facility for washing hair, no hairdryer and the TV was pre-remote control. Breakfast time is set (rigidly) with no scope for flexibilty and the meals are over priced for the surroundings. The proprietor comes over as being abrupt and unapproachable, can't comment on the other staff as we spent as little time in the hotel as possible. The building itself is beautiful and quirky with sloping floors, original beams and lovely views however the lack of uptodate basic facilities and a warm welcome spoils it. The A438 goes right by the hotel which is exactly what I shall be doing next time I am in the area.

We stayed here after a superb walk in the Black Mountains near Hay on Wye. The hotel itself has a great ambience and very interesting history. Everyone was very friendly and sociable and couldn't do enough for us. The evening meal that we had was excellent, with huge portions, reasonably priced and with very efficient service. There were even extra top ups of coffee which is a very much appreciated gesture that you don't find everywhere.There was really nothing that we could fault at the Rhydspence and we will certainly visit again when we are next in the area.

This ancient inn prides itself in its creaking and drafty rooms. That's fine, but the service, food and overall atmosphere are pretty creaky too, which is not. On a cold winter weekend, the promised 'roaring log fires' just smoked and the restaurant was in the hands of a teenager whose idea of 'service' involved plonking down a previously opened bottle of wine. Oh yes, and they over charged us too and declined to rectify their error. Stay away!
