    Friendly staff and superb food!

    This was my second stay at The Old Black Lion in the last couple of years and it didn't disappoint. The single room was small but comfortable and the location was central but away from the noise of the pubs. I ate in the restaurant and the food was excellent, absolutely superb, local ingredients and I recommend eating here even if your staying elsewhere in and around Hay. The inclusive breakfast was similarly delicious and generous. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and even though they hadn't received notification of my booking they happily dealt with it. The only negative was the shower in the room which was very and I'd suggest on the blink but other than that a very happy and comfortable stay with a memorable evening meal.

    Welsh Excellence!!

    I was greeted by Jason, a very pleasant Welsh gentleman. Check in was smooth and easy. The food was very good indeed in the pub. They have won numerous awards. I would highly recommend this hotel. I will be booking another trip here with my husband.
