We wanted to visit Hay for a couple of days and chose The Bear mainly because of the TripAdvisor reviews. Needless to say we were not at all disappointed! We stayed in the double room which was really cute and we weren't worried about having a shared bathroom as we were the only couple using it.
Facilities were great, the bathroom was really well done and the shower was lovely. Breakfast was delicious with plenty on offer. The bread used for toast was not just any bread, most certainly fresh, local produce which is lovely to see.
Kudos to our host too who was attentive and chatty without being at all intrusive and was more than happy to supply us with synthetic bedding for us as my husband is allergic to feathers!
Thank you again for a great experience, we both thoroughly recommend for anyone going to Hay.
