Charming historic building, full of character and in a great location in centre of Hay. A warm welcome on arrival. Comfortable and clean bedrooms and outside you can enjoy the lovely large garden. Hope to return soon.

We were made very welcome by a lovely couple. The house is super and the room we stayed in is excellent with plenty of room and stylish decor. Breakfast was delicious and the location is great for walking in the hills nearby.

We have stayed at Tinto House several times over the years, and it never fails to impress. The ambience of the house is so welcoming, and this atmosphere is amplified by the time and attention given to the decoration and furnishings in each room. The breakfasts are delicious and the House is right in the middle of Hay-on-Wye. You couldn't... More

Lovely house full of interesting objects, paintings and lots of books. I appreciated the warm welcome. My twin bedded room was quiet spacious and clean and I had an excellent night's sleep followed a very good breakfast. I am looking forward to return visits as the area has so much to offer.

Just had an excellent weekend here courtesy of drover cycling tours in hay on wye, who also provided a tandem and cycle route for my wife and I. The b&b is very special and certainly in keeping with the hay on wye theme. The manager Veronica was very helpful in advising re restaurants and the local area. Thoroughly recommend it.

Tinto House is centrally located, with the river Wye flowing at the bottom of the back garden and the town's many bookshops merely a stone's throw away. It is owned by an erudite couple, who have a wealth of knowledge about the local area and can suggest some scenic routes in the Black Mountains. They are warm and welcoming and... More

I stayed here just a night in April last year. It's a very good time for me coz Karen and her husband were such a great host. They treated us well no matter where we're from. We got a yellow room on the right hand which was very lovely, clean and cozy. There're also a cute garden behind the house,... More

I've stayed here twice now and I absolutely love John and Karen's B&B! It's so comfortable and feels like home. The place is full of antiques and John's paintings and of course being in Hay, there are books everywhere. I also can't fault the hosts' hospitality. Both so lovely and friendly. There is no doubt ill be back.

This B&B is quite out of the ordinary. It is perfectly located just near the centre of Hay. The house has wonderful original features and a gorgeous garden. We have stayed several times and all the rooms we have used are very well appointed and comfortable. We do have special dietary needs but Karen was so accommodating - she made... More
