“Great Location - Hay on Wye”
Reviewed 22 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a terrific stay at the Pavement Palace. Located right in the middle of the village, the flat was beautifully presented and clean. James was great to communicate with and I would highly recommend staying here.

“Best Holiday rental ever”
Reviewed 13 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed in The Pavement Palace for a week just before Christmas. It was heaven. Super cosy with a wood burning stove and plenty of wood provided. Fantastic bathroom with a really excellent shower (a rarity) and a lovely big bath. With a 4 month old baby in tow we were delighted to have both a washing machine and tumble drier. It's in a great location - when we were feeling lazy it was a one minute stagger across the road to sit and eat and read in the cafe at Booth's. The owner had even decorated it simply and tastefully for Christmas.
We cannot recommend it highly enough and cannot wait to go back.

“You will not want to go out..”
Reviewed 31 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

There is only one thing wrong with the Pavement Palace and that was we did not want to leave it. It was just perfect. We'll equipped kitchen, lovely bath for two with an excellent overhead shower. The cosy (but spacious) living room with huge sofa and wood burning stove was just the best place to relax and read one of those books you have just brought. We visited just between Christmas and New Year and the apartment just invited Christmas in, the log fire burning and the Christmas lights twinkling in from the pretty street outside.
And yes as everyone says the bed is pretty impressive!

“I'd say it's like a home from home but I'd be lying - it's SO much better than that.”
Reviewed 13 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

This was the most lovely place to stay. I have never stayed anywhere that felt so stylish and so very comfortable. From the huge bath with piping hot water, to the enormous bed, wood-burning stove and cosy sofa, this was the perfect base to go exploring in the Black Mountains while still having all the convenience of Hay right on the doorstep (quite literally). The owner even met us to give us the keys and a basket of kindling that he had just chopped for us. Everything about The Pavement Palace worked for me, it felt a bit like being allowed to stay in one of those beautiful houses you see in Elle Decoration, didn't want to leave and have to come back to real life.

“If you want to stay in Hay - Stay Here!”
Reviewed 3 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Four of us had a few days in Hay and went against our normal form by picking somewhere in the centre of town rather than our usual rural location. As with all of Hay parking is not great but we had no trouble as we tended to be out and about by 10 before the dreaded uniforms could arrive. Also wouldn't recommend if you are disabled as it's on two levels. Booked the deal through TripAdvisor as opposed to direct and all went fine. Panicked a bit when I read the full details as I worried it wouldn't sleep 4 of us (2 couples) but rang James the owner and was reassured. Sure enough a giant bed was matched by another double put up in the lounge (unobtrusively) and the place was kitted out way above the norm. Supplies in the kitchen, fuel for the fire, great central heating and every mod con, even towels laid on. WiFi was spot on as was TV. Can't recommend too highly and the best compliment is to say if I ever stay in Hay again - I'll stay here.

“A Palace on a Pavement!”

people found this review helpful

Its truly fabulous and so quirky. Design, location, cleanliness and cosy. I took my niece for a couple of days pony trekking in the black mountains and together with the wonderful town of Hay and the accommodation we did not want for a thing. With the log burner glowing and piping hot water was just perfect and the sofa is large enough to accommodate a family and so is the luxurious bed!!!! Crisp white cotton sheets and a mattress to sink into and the cutest loo in a cupboard in the bedroom,brilliant! The kitchen is fantastically equipped and there is even a washing machine and tumble dryer. The Pavement Palace has not missed a single detail, its absolutely perfect and there is no need to take any domestic bits n bobs, its all there. Do try it, you will not be disappointed, we certainly were not. The name Pavement Palace describes this accommodation perfectly. Thank you Pavement Palace.
