“Nice b&b in good location”
Reviewed 11 April 2014 via mobile

This place is really nice - the room was charming (although it could have been hovered a bit better) and the owner Annabel very friendly - perhaps a bit too overprotective; I really didn't want a cooked breakfast, but she seemed rather upset about it. Sorry! All in all a nice place to stay in the middle of Hay.

Our stay at La Fosse in Hay-on-Wye was a "Suprise" 50th birthday jaunt, for my partner. We eventually arrived at the Guest House, after getting slightly lost. We were greeted by Annabel and made very welcome, even though we hadn't even set foot over the threshold. We were shown to our room and it was spacious, clean and warm. We had our Jack Russell with us and she was very impressed by the welcome she was given and was offered a sausage for breakfast. I had read the reviews but, was not prepaired for the huge full English breakfast, I had ordered, that was placed infront of me the first morning, it was delicious and set me up for the rest of the day. Nothing was too much for Annabel and Bob. A birthday card was given to my partner the morning of her birthday. I could go on and on about the place but, just go see for yourselves. I will be staying again in the future, so long as Annabel and Bob are the hosts.

Stayed at La Fosse whilst working in Hay and felt immediately welcome. The house is full of character and the rooms are clean, comfortable and nicely furnished and decorated, plus ensuite with good sized shower. A great breakfast selection. Bob and Annabell have got it just right. Would definitely stay here again.

I visited Hay-on- Wye to see family and was recommended this little gem. Upon booking I informed Annabel that I would not be arriving until between 10pm and midnight. Despite the late hour Annabel met me at the front door and greeted me a hearty welcome.

I was allocated a double room even though I was only one person which had a newly fitted en-suite bathroom with a really nice large shower which was a real treat after spending five hours in the car. Comfy bed, tea and coffee making facilities and a TV at the end of the bed. Overall, everything was clean and tidy and I felt immediately at home and had a good nights sleep.

Breakfast - I must say it was worth the stay even if only for the massive 'full English' that I was served up !!!

Will definitely stay with Annabell at La Fosse on my next visit to Hay, thank you ...

Bob and Annabelle couldn't do enough to make me feel welcome, without fussing or overdoing it. Had a lovely room, en suite at a reasonable price (£35 for one person per night), and a fantastic breakfast each day - when Anabelle knew I was vegan she went out of her way to accommodate and was thoughtful enough to use separate pans without even asking. I would thoroughly recommend staying here.

My son and I visited Hay On Wye, a beautiful, charming town full of the most amazing book shops over 12 months ago. We stayed at La Fosse, and yes the beds were comfortable, the rooms were clean and the breakfast Bob cooked was great, but more than that it will always remain a favourite stay on our trip because of Annabel. We felt like we were staying with a friend!
Annabel was welcoming and engaging and a breathe of fresh air after some other gloomy experiences. People like Annabel make memories.
