Score from 177 reviews Fabulous
This lovely, old stone building is at the foothills of the Black Mountains amid beautiful countryside and views of the Brecon Beacons. It has a restful feel, comfortable rooms and a free Wi-Fi zone.

Score from 31 reviews Very good
Warm welcome. Great food.
reasonably comfortable room, excellent breakfast
Breakfast was superb! Bacon cooked to perfection and all local produce too.
The food- the venison and cheese board were particularly good.
staff are very friendly and room very quiet at night
Dinner was fine breakfast, slow and not so good.
Being attacked by a dog not being controlled by owners and left running around bar area. Not all persons own or like dogs why do owners assume they do? They should be kept on leads while in public places at least.
I liked the old world ambience. The staff were friendly and the breakfast delicious.
Good service excellent food, many thanks!
Wi Fi in room 1 would be an improvement
Restaurant decor and comfort Log fire Menu Spacious country styled room Attentive staff The creaky floors and furniture:)
shower room could be updated
nice enough furniture and atmosphere in the room itself. pretty pub and restaurant. good location. breakfast very good.
peeling paint in showerroom.bathroom had no bath, just a shower and this wasn't 4* quality needed an extra fan heater to keep the bedroom warm. expensive for what it was.
Charming building Great atmosphere Very nice food Good parking facilities Central to most local shops
Shower not strong enough or hot enough to wash hair
Friendly and attentive. Relaxing atmosphere.
Nothing negative to say
This is a quality establishment, the proprietors and all the staff were very friendly, the inn is only a couple of hunred yards from the shops, cafés and pubs. It has a very cosy feel with beamed ceilings and a roaring fire.
the staff the breakfast
bedroom was dreary and the bathroom, particularly needed updating. Bathroom dirty, bedroom carpet dirty, also dusty. Too small a room for all that dark red - depressing!
Character of building. Comfort and space in the Cromwell Suite. Excellent, friendly staff. Good restaurant. Cosy atmosphere.
There was nothing significant not to like! Wifi reception was poor in our room and shower was a bit feeble but these are minor issues in the context of staying in a lovely old building.
'Have stayed here before and like very much the cosy atmosphere of an old Inn steeped in history. The staff are really pleasant and the food is good. On site parking is very convenient and getting to the town centre on foot is very pleasant.
No negatives. I knew already what to expect hence this return visit.
Evening meal, service, quality were excellent
Disappointing breakfast for me, slow service, muddle with order and burnt toast! Husband loved his breakfast!!
Friendly staff and nice menu
Staff were very welcoming and helpful.
It would have been nice to know that we were going to be in an annexe and not in the main hotel. Room very dark and horrible wallpaper. Food good but not exceptional. Very overpriced.
Loved the inn, felt comfortable, the little snug was good and the breakfasts were very tasty.
The breakfast is excellent (winter fruit compote and scrambled egg are both very special) and I am not surprised it has received AA Rosettes and mention in Michelin Guide several times. The dinner is also excellent - this is a good pub for quality food. Try the starter 'Antipasto for Two' - its almost a meal in itself and brilliantly presented.Staff very friendly and helpful. Nice atmosphere.
I think it is a little expensive relative to B&Bs at £55 for a single room. However, I realise the food is very good relative to some other accommodation in Hay.
The location and the friendly and helpful staff
the dark uncomfortable room
We loved the old black lion , the restaurant area is really cosy and its a lovely place to eat, the staff very welcoming and we would definitely recommend this as a place to stay in hay on wye that is also really convenient for the centre.
Would have liked more vegetarian options on menu.
Friendly helpful staff. Comfortable albeit small room. Handy to explore Hay on Wye. Lovely breakfast and dinner. Free car park.
