Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wow, what a fantastic B&B! Such a warm welcome from our hosts Sharon and David. Their house has been beautifully renovated, extremely comfortable bedrooms, fantastic views and everything you could want for....including muffins just out the oven with our welcoming cuppa. We were so well looked after and had a perfect friends get together. Finally the breakfast was amazing! If I could give 11/10 I would for this lovely homely experience, thankyou. We will be back!! Sarah, Liz and Jeanie. Xxx

We stayed here while walking Offa's Dyke in September 2023. Of 11 different places we stayed in during the walk, this was definitely the best. The bedrooms are very comfortable and spacious, and have everything you need,including a really good bathroom with a powerful shower. The breakfast is superb, and the ideal way to start the day. You can have cooked breakfast, but also a great selection of yogurt, fruit, cereals etc, and other lovely things. But, above all, Sharon and David make you feel right at home. Warm and friendly, but without being over-powering. A excellent choice for a stay in this lovely party of the world.

Every item was top quality from the welcoming tea & biscuits to the best breakfast a walker could wish for. Nice touches were everywhere, super comfortable bed & very quiet. We even had a Welsh lesson- fantastic hosts. I cannot recommend enough, 10/10. The perfect place to stay! Thank you.

Lovely hosts and excellent breakfast. Easy check in, come and go as you please. 10 minute walk into town over the fields or maybe 15 along the road. Bedding and towels etc were definitely a cut above, very luxurious. Plenty of parking. Can't fault this place one bit.

We had a superb overnight stay at Elmsleigh at the beginning of our six night walking trip. The house is in a perfect location which is so quiet but within a short walk of Hay. Our twin room was clean and beautifully furnished with comfortable beds and an excellent selection of tea/coffee making facilities. Sharon was very friendly and welcoming and provided an outstanding breakfast the next morning.

Myself and my husband spent 2 wonderful nights at Elmsleigh and our hosts Sharon and Dave were so friendly and welcoming. Their knowledge of walks in the beautiful surrounding area was really helpful. The beautufully decorated house is spotless yet very comfortable. It offers every modern convenience. We had a lovely rainforest shower in our ensuite. Our breakfast was very tasty and set us up well for the day. It has a lovely sunny garden too which would be great to relax in on a summers evening I imagine! Hay on Wye is a picture postcard country town with lots of book shops cafes and gastro pubs. The castle which is in the centre of town is worth a visit and the viewing tower allows stunning 360° views of the countryside. I would thoroughly recommend Elmsleigh and Hay on Wye for a fab weekend or indeed midweek break. Sharon and Dave were the icing on the cake. And indeed we were greeted with delicious homemade carrot cake and tea on our arrival. Thank you for making our stay so special. We will definitely return soon

We were only there for one night but what a lovely place to stay! Sharon and David were warm and welcoming hosts, our rooms were beautiful and comfortable, the breakfast was amazing. The house is also in a quiet and lovely location within easy walking distance of Hay. A wonderful find. I’d definitely go there again.

We are regular visitors to Elmsleigh and always enjoy the excellent hospitality offered by Sharon and David, including a welcome with tea and homemade cake. The breakfasts are delicious with choice and variety and the bedrooms clean and comfortable with thoughtful touches. Hay is a pleasant 15 minute walk away by road or across beautiful fields.
