We recently stayed at the swan hotel with the family and our dog. I can't fault this hotel at all, staff were so welcoming and couldn't do enough for you, nothing was to much trouble if we needed anything. Hotel was very clean, cosy and we will definitely be returning in the near future.

My 4 friends and I enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea at The Swan. We were welcomed by the staff and asked where we'd like to go. We chose the dining room. A large spacious room with beautiful large sash windows looking out on to the garden. We were lucky to have a beautiful, sunny Autumn day and to have the room all to ourselves. We had a selection of finger sandwiches presented on Welsh slate ... tuna, smoked salmon, ham and cheese ... we had pots of tea and coffee in beautiful flowery tea pots ... lovely china cups, saucers and plates ... the cakes were served on 3 tier cake stands contained a small Eton mess style dessert with a little fusia on the top, a small fruit flan with a viola, a rich chocolate brownie, French macaroons, a slice of lemon sponge and Bara Brith ... but the item that blew us all away was the scone ... the most amazing taste sensation ever ... crunchy and crumbly on the outside, light and tasty in the middle ... accompanied with clotted cream and jam ... we all agreed it was the best scone we'd had. We had such a lovely relaxed afternoon ... a few of our group even went for a walk around the garden in between cakes. Highly recommend a visit when in Hay.

What was planned as a quick meal became great experience of tasting excellent local foods in the dinner time restaurant area.
The ale and beef pie was first rate and the salmon something to savour.
Staff,ember was so helpful.

We went for dinner on a Thursday evening and had a super evening. The food was absolutely fantastic and well worth a five star rating! Staff were very welcoming and friendly. An excellent choice of food on the menu and all very reasonably priced. We enjoyed a glass of the house white wine while we waited for our food. The wine was chilled and a good quality. We both enjoyed starters that were well presented and extremely tasty. Portion size was perfect. Our main meals arrived and were absolutely fantastic. An excellent quality of food that not only looked amazing, tasted superb! It was without doubt one of the best meals we have ever had. We settled back and enjoyed some more wine before being tempted by the sweet menu. Again an excellent choice and we decided on one pudd and two spoons! A fabulous lemon drizzle pudding that would have delighted anyone. Later we asked for the bill and were delighted when the charming waitress informed us that our loyalty card discount had been applied automatically, (they remembered us from our last visit). We were very impressed with the whole evening and will certainly be recommending this place to our friends and family. A HUGE THANK YOU to all the staff from two very satisfied, local customers.
