I stayed here on Saturday 31st of August. The room was spotlessly clean and decorated to a good standard.
The food was excellent, I had an evening meal, (Scallops and chorizo to start, followed by Fish and Chips with Lemon tart for dessert).
Breakfast the next morning was delicious (Full English/Welsh consisted of Bacon, Scrambled Eggs Black Pudding, Mushrooms, Vine Tomatoes and Toast). All the ingredients were fresh and where possible, locally sourced.
I read reviews on TripAdvisor for the River Cafe before I stayed and a few reviews were complaining about the service. My experience was service of the highest quality and attention to detail. All of the staff couldn't do enough to make me feel welcome. Especially the two waiters both called Alex and a guy with a ponytail. Top marks from me for service!
I will definitely be returning here soon.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located on the river at Glasbury, 4 miles from Hay-on-Wye the River Café is a café/restaurant with 5 rooms, a bunkhouse and a canoe centre. The rooms are simple, modern and ideal for a base to explore this wonderful area. The Brecon Beacons National Park is just a short drive away and we are on the Sustran Cycle Network and the Wye Valley Walk. We get a lot of paddlers with their own canoes staying before they set off downstream. The breakfasts in the café are a treat with great coffee and a full English breakfast to set you up for the day. We are a small family run business with an entirely local staff who can help you with things to do in the area and where to walk. Return to the café in the evening for freshly cooked food and a glass of wine on the decking. What could be better! Please note we are open 7 days a week from 0830 but early close in the winter months (4pm) from Sun-Tues. Weds to Sat open 0830 till late. ... more less
