About this Hotel

A family run hotel on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, The Swan at Hay Hotel is just footsteps from Hay on Wye centre with its choice of fine inns, arts centres, restaurants and independent shops. A character former Georgian coaching inn with original Georgian windows still in place, The Swan offers a warm welcome and a relaxed atmosphere. Guest bedrooms include pet friendly rooms and a wide choice of room types to suit all budgets and tastes. We have two restaurants - the informal Bistro and the elegant Garden Room Restaurant, both serving fine locally sourced food prepared by our French trained chef.

Bedrooms / Bathrooms

Each of our 17 bedrooms are different and reflect the wonderfully quirky style of the former coaching inn. All rooms include en-suite bathrooms with a bath and shower over, except 8 rooms which just have a shower. Flatscreen televisions and DVD players, tea/ coffee making facilities and direct dial telephones are all provided in rooms. Choose from spacious Superior Rooms with garden views, Large Standard Rooms, Standard Rooms and our cosy pet friendly Courtyard Rooms in the annex adjacent to the hotel. 


Hearty Full Welsh breakfasts are included in booking and we'll happily supply extra beds in Superior Rooms on request. Pets are welcome in Courtyard Rooms for a small additional fee and packed lunches are provided on request also for a small extra fee per person.

Free WiFi internet access is available in the hotel and off road parking on-site to the rear. The Swan is perfect for Hay Festival Breaks - we're just minutes' from the main festival site and open daily for coffee/ pastries, lunch and dinner - pre-booking for food is highly recommended during the festival.

Other Facilities

Guests also have access to their own comfortable residents' lounge, the bar and our beautiful walled garden.
