Though we didn't plan to stay over a book shop, it came as no real surprise when we discovered that Rest For The Tired was situated over one, in bookish Hay on Wye.
We really liked this place - it was everything we enjoy in a B&B; welcoming, warm, clean and oozing character. We liked the quirkiness of the ancient half timbered building (even though the door to our room was only about 5 feet high). We liked the large communal breakfast table where we could chat to other guests. We liked the central location and free parking. But above all we liked Mary's cheerful, relaxed, helpful hospitality.
Negatives? None for us. But if you don't like climbing quite narrow stairs, or sharing a table with people you don't know for breakfast, or books, it may not be for you. We will certainly choose it again if we find ourselves in this beautiful part of Britain.
