The Swan at Hay is a glorious Georgian building housing 19 bedrooms. The hotel was relaunched in February 2017 following a million pound refurbishment. All 19 bedrooms and bathrooms were refurbished, as were all the public areas. Set in the heart of the world-renowned 'Town of Books,' Hay-on-Wye, it is an ideal base to explore the Brecon Beacons and surrounding countryside. With a choice of 3 dining areas, visitors can choose to dine in the beautiful Garden Room restaurant, the snug or the more informal bar.

We had been recommended this Hotel as the best play to stay when visiting Hay on Wye and it really didn’t disappoint. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming, the room was cosy, well laid out and had a really comfortable bed and the breakfast was great! Really nice town

We stayed at The Swan for Valentine's day and had a beautiful time. Staff were lovely, didn't catch their names but the night porter and receptionist in particular were a pleasure and went above and beyond in terms of service. The room was comfortable and clean with a modern

I booked room only as we were traveling back from Cardiff to the Midlands and wanted a stopover. First impressions were really good and nothing changed our minds in the short time we stayed. Lovely room (if a little snug but it was only one night) Exceptionally clean and

Thanks for your enquiry but I have to say I don't think the prices are too expensive. Our main courses vary from £11.95 for a wide variety of choices to £23.95 for a ribeye steak. We really try to be value for money but thank you for your high praise of the quality of the food. We are building a great team here at The Swan.

"We had Room 3, a dual aspect room superior with American king size bed (UK Superking) very comfortable indeed."
"Rooms at the front are probably more spacious. Room 10 was in a small side corridor."
"Annexe room is comfortable and handy for car park Decor is a bit plain"
"Specify if you want a bed larger than a standard double."
"The road in the front of the hotel is fairly quiet at night; traffic starts at about 6 am."
