For good value simple accommodation in an amazingly quiet location the Half Moon would be hard to beat. Situated close to the impressive ruins of Llanthony Abbey and miles from the nearest towns (Abergavenny, Hay on Wye) the inn is an excellent base for walkers, particularly the nearby Offa's Dyke path.
The rooms are clean, comfortable and simply furnished, though not en-suite, but at £30 a night who's complaining ! The breakfast is substantial, and there is a good choice of evening meals, also of generous proportions, in the bar.
If you are planning on going out after nightful, take a torch - is it very, very dark !
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Half Moon Hotel is set in a peaceful and secluded spot in the beautiful Black Mountains, part of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Next door to Llanthony Priory. The friendly 17th-century pub is an ideal base for walkers (we are not far from the Offas Dyke Path and on the beacons way path). We are also well situated to explore the Norman border castles, old churches and chapels of the Welsh borders. The small town of Abergavenny is 10 miles away. Hay-on-Wye 13 miles, Hereford 25 miles and Cardiff 40 miles. The Half Moon serves good food, real ales & tea & coffee, child friendly pub. We also have a beer garden for your use and dogs are welcome. Pony trekking is available close by and caters for all ages and abilities. The Half Moon is situated in an area designated as a dark sky at night location and is therefore ideal for stargazers and photographers. Our accommodation is basic due to the age of the building, but a warm welcome and good food and ale is offered to all our visitors. The Half Moon is currently undergoing a major refurbishment and therefore there is some disruption to normal service however we are working extremely hard to keep the disturbance to our guests to a minimum.
