We stayed at the lovely Hay Adam's in September 2013 and really enjoyed it. They gave us and our friends a free room upgrade and nothing was too much trouble.
Personable staff, helpful and friendly.
A great bar "off the record" in the basement which was brilliant for a few beers or glass of wine after a long day sight-seeing or a burger after our long flight.
Just make sure you dress up in the evening though, with all the locals in posh frocks and black tie I did feel a little out of place in my jeans, even if made welcome.
The Hay Adams is not a cheap hotel, but they certainly made you feel better about the price and made us feel like we had value for money.
Plus, it was lovely staying in such a historic building, just next door to the President!
