This is such a beautiful place. The drive there, down winding country lanes, is spectacular. There are a range of walks nearby and the restaurant serves good food with excellent service. Will definitely be back!

This place is quite stunning. Hard to reach up a very narrow lane (or across and down the Gospel Pass from Hay-on-Wye), you come upon a dramatic ruin, with views of the Black Mountains framed through its gothic arches. The story of the place, first...More

Visited today whilst taking in Gospel pass. The whole site is very well maintained and worth a visit. Car park is free and there are also toilets in the car park. Driving to the priory can be difficult if the narrow country road is busy...More

We stayed for two nights at Llanthony Priory Hotel. It is the most ancient building with spiral stone stairs, within the priory ruins. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room (room 2, possibly the best) was comfortable, furnished appropriately with antique furniture. Bathroom facilities...More

We visited this in a Thursday afternoon. The site is well marked and the journey from either end of the valley is rewarding and helps explain why it was built there, just inside Wales. Car parking is free and there are some picnic benches. The...More

Can't keep away from this place. Relaxing atmosphere in a stunning location. Lovely dark skies to sit and just look up at the stars while enjoying the peace and quiet.

We attended a family wedding, and what a stunning backdrop for some of the wedding photos. The cellar bar was fantastic as was the service and the selection of beers.

We called in here with family while staying in the area. It is super, we got a beer and sat in the ruins on a lovely June day. Can’t comment on the food as we didn’t eat but the ruins make a lovely beer garden....More

Easy access with a large car park immediately adjacent to the site. Obviously it is now largely a ruin but it is easy to imagine the full structure in its day. Quiet and peaceful on a sunny May day outside school holiday period with just...More
