Half Moon Inn
Ranked #1 of 2 Llanthony B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 August 2012

Spent the weekend here as horse riding up the road at Travelog.
Rooms are very simple and very clean.
Considering what they charge the little extras in the room are fantastic.
Tea, choclate bar, cotton buds wet wipes all add a great touch..
The hosts work very hard and charge little money.
Breakfast is superb and enough to keep you going till tea time.
Expect to see a dog or two in the bar and very friendly regulars.
A real welsh welcome.
No ensuite but three separate showers and toilets which are fine.
If you want five star en-suite luxury go somewhere else.
However if you want great service,super food and friendly locals stop here.
Bargain price to.
Take no notice of an earlier review where customer was supposed to be offered a en- suite room.
Half moon does not have one so why would they offer this service.
Sadly some people pay nothing and all they do is winge.
Second time I have stayed here and going again later in year

We stayed here having walked from Hay on Wye via the Offa"s Dyke Path. We arrived and were met by George the owner who showed us to our room which was comfortable yet basic with a superb view from the window. George offered my wife and I one nights accommodation, evening meal, breakfast and a substantial packed lunch for £43 each which we considered an absolute bargain. The food was homely and welcome after a long walk in from Hay and the guest beers were also very good. Breakfast was also wholesome but the packed lunch was absolutely gorgeous with lots of goodies provided.

All in all, this was a lovely area to stay in after a long day on the hill. Whilst the Half Moon is not The Ritz and nor should you expect it to be, George provides a clean and pleasant stay with good food, super beer and a warm room - what more could you want?

A friend and I walked the first few days of the Beacons Way and booked into the Half Moon Inn to stay after our first day of walking. It was comfortable, friendly, warm and cosy. The staff were all lovely and the food was delicious. In the morning we had a fantastic breakfast overlooking a beautiful garden before carrying on with our adventure. A real gem!

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.

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.
