    A lovely little town.

    A lovely little town. Obviously you will most likely be going for the bookshops. There are also other interesting shops, and on one of the days we visited - Thursday - a market. Lovely countryside around too

    Beautiful town. A must for all book lovers. Plenty of good quality eateries, providing a range of eating options. Local people are very friendly. We have visited three times in recent years and fully intend to visit again. We would never tire of this place.

    Hay is great , there is always something to do here.

    Hay is great , there is always something to do here. Some lovely antique shops and vintage bizarres. Great coffee shops and restaurants. The Castle has been restored and is a beautiful gift to behold. We love walking along the river to The Warren and having a dip in the cold water. A little gem of a place.

    Hay is a beautiful village with many historic buildings and interesting shops. There are many options for outdoor recreation in the area. One thing to note is that most shops close at 5 PM. My favorite meal was dinner at The Old Black Lion. Every meal I had in Hay was excellent. Please note if you are using the bus to get from the train station at Hereford to check the bus schedule yourself since Google Maps pulled from the wrong table. There is a lovely walking path along the River Wye with amazing views of the river.

    A wonderful place to visit!

    A wonderful place to visit! Quirky shops, vast array of book & antique shops and a lovely market. Coffee shops we’ve visited have all been excellent. My husband and I regularly visit for a night or two. We dine at the Blue Boar and occasionally the Indian restaurant- both superb! Lovely walks, and a ambience of calmness & fresh air entices us back all seasons. My daughter and I have also camped nearby- that’s was fabulous too!

    Everyone was friendly and helpful. The steps from the pub to the rooms are very steep and I was helped with my suitcase to my room. Hotel was very quiet at night for this weary traveler. Parking was so convenient. My salmon dinner was delicious. My compliments to the chef. Breakfast in the morning (included in booking) was also delicious. I am so glad I got to stay and visit Hay-on- Wye before the festival.

    We had an excellent stay. The cellar apartment was spacious and comfortable - a relaxing place to unwind. We were made to feel very welcome. The car park was only a short stroll away, and a very pleasant one by the river. A few minutes further along the path is the Warren, a wide open space in rolling countryside. Hay is a lovely place and we would love to return - and, of course, stay at The Bridge Hay.

    The location was absolutely fantastic - so easy to reach pretty much anywhere else in the town. Very handy to have the Spar next door. It was very quiet despite being on one of the main roads. In terms of the place itself - it was so clean and well appointed. It had basically anything we could need, including very thoughtful extras like local milk and bread.

    Loved the spacious rooms - excellent shower in the en suite. Proper prints and paintings on the wall - none of this corporate art. Luscious silk brocade curtains. Really comfortable. Great food. Sparkling clean. Parking. Nice staff and owner. Bang in the middle of Hay. All in all: perfect.

    We really enjoyed our stay at The Smithy, our hosts were very welcoming, the room was great with a wonderful view, very peaceful surroundings. Huge breakfast meant we were set up well for the day. A great location for visiting Hay-on-Wye. Would definitely recommend staying here.

    The location is beautiful, with stunning views, the accommodation is superb and the hosts could not have been kinder or more accommodating. The breakfasts were outstanding and small luxuries (baskets of fruit, home made cakes) made our stay really special - all 7 days :-)
