The Swan at Hay Hotel, Hay on Wye
Pleasant, comfortable hotel
The hotel is very conveniently located in a lovely setting. It was pleasant and clean, if not particularly memorable.

Lovely comfortable winter break with real fire
Had a lovely three night break, with upgraded room. Staff very pleasant. New layout with lounge next to bar works much better, with a real fire in winter also really nice. Had a bar meal whilst there and could move to higher tables, still with fire as central point. Food was delicious. Good choice of basic wines served in 125, 175, 250, 500 mls or bottle, very useful. Good Sunday lunch, very nicely presented.

Delightful & very convenient
Sumptuous hotel, lovely garden, comfortable room , just needed more attention to detail such as working bedside lights& faster breakfast service - on our morning it was a little slapdash, had to keep reminding staff about the absence of toast & fried food on cold plates is never good...but a delightful setting in a delightful town so would definately go back.
