Stayed here for one night in november 2011
George and his staff are very friendly as are all the locals.
Pub mainly used as a base for walkers and pony trekkers.
I stayed with my daughter and had a very comfortable stay.
Beds were very comfortable.
Room had tea making facilities and clean towels with a sink and were very clean.
Rooms are not ensuite but there are three toilets and three showers which are adequate.
We normally only have ensuite but was not a problem at this pub.
I think about eight rooms in total (guess)
Television downstairs in breakfast room only.
Dog friendly pub with open fire.
Breakfast was superb with orange juice, cereals, fruit, and full breakfast.
Bar meals available which are excellent .
Mobiles tend not to work in the valley and no broadband yet..
We will be returning again for horse riding again at Trevelog and will be staying here again.
If you are one of life"s want five star hotel for two star price go elsewhere.
However if you want a comfortable nights sleep,super food, fantastic hosts then stay here.
We paid £50 for bed and breakfast for two.
Super pub, Thanks George and staff

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 !

The Half Moon is plain, not fancy. And that's by design. This rustic inn provides clean and simple shared-bath facilities that fill the bill nicely for folks hiking or horse treking the gorgeous countryside. On our two day visit, host George was a real prince. He picked us up at the Skirrid Inn (we didn't have a car), let us wash some muddy clothes, and was always quick with helpful advice on everything from local hikes to bird watching. He also cooks up some fine, homemade grub in mammoth proportions. Be sure and visit the convivial, dog-friendly pub as well. The Moon was just what we were looking for in a homespun country inn.

Stayed here for 2 nights,found the hotel staff to be very helpful and welcoming,the food was well cooked and reasonably priced,would definitely stay here again, if you order the "Full Welsh"make sure you're hungry.

This small hotel lies in a very quiet valley. Single lane roads, sheep all around, great walking. Close to Offa's Dyke Path and within easy reach of Hay-on-Wye, the world's number one spot for second hand books. The bar has some real Welsh ales, the food is done with care and the full Welsh breakfast gives you more than enough energy to climb the adjacent hills.
The rooms are simple but adequate, toilets and showers are shared.
Deep sleep guaranteed: no traffic at night, no trains, absolute dead silent.
George is a very pleasant host, who is genuinely interested in his guests and makes them really feel at home.
Absolutely value for money. High on my list of places to return to !
