The Swan @ Hay Hotel purchased by Llangoed Hall’s owners
A full refurbishment of The Swan @ Hay Hotel in the book capital of Hay-on-Wye is being planned.
The 18-bedroomed hotel has been acquired by the owners of the multi-award winning Llangoed Hall at nearby Llyswen who plan a major project to re-roof and refurbish the property over the winter and early spring.
The Swan @ Hay Hotel, popular as a location for weddings, conferences, family reunions and short breaks, was previously owned by the Mackintosh family for seven years. Able to cater for weddings and banquets of up to 120 people, the hotel’s restaurant has been awarded a one AA rosette.
The hotel will continue to run until January when it is planned close for a full refurbishment, including a brand new roof. The refurbishment is expected to be completed by the end of April 2016 when it will be a very comfortable coaching inn offering very good food.
The acquisition will give a much stronger base for the Hay Festival next year.
Hay-on-Wye is a delightful town primarily renowned for its international book festival and book shops. It is also a tourist town popular for short breaks and is perfectly located on the edge of the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains.
