“Beautiful Wye Valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Rather than experience Wales through a commercialized hotel, the Old Tintern Rectory Inn, a minute drive from Tintern Abby is a much better way to take in the beauty of the Wye Valley. The beds in the historic house overlooking the river Wye are extremely comfortable and the rooms are large enough to be move about. The breakfasts prepared by Anika and Ian are fabulous, healthy and ingredients are from the locals. The vegetarian Glamorgan sausage is delicious. Ian and Anika have a wealth of information about the area with great tips about the footpaths. This is a beautiful area to explore and we highly recommend this B&B

Room Tip: We traveled with our young adult son and had the suite with two bedrooms and bathroom. Perfect for...

Just a one night stay returning from Cornwall. The Old Rectory is very easy to find on the A466. Perfect for a visit to Tintern Abby and walks along the River Wye. Car parking is available and designated and situated directly across the road. The room was spacious with the biggest double bed I have ever seen and wonderfully comfortable. The owner Ian was friendly and courteous. You can have anything you want on the breakfast menu, it was "mix and match" and came with home-made breads and preserves. The building is old and wonderful and everything you would expect and love from these precious windows in history. I would recommend to everybody.

I have only good things to say about our recent stay at the Old Rectory. Ian the landlord was welcoming, the place is in a lovely spot, the room was beautiful and quirky and the breakfast was fantastic, having lovely thick sliced local bacon and sausages from just a few miles away, high quality home made bread and delicious fruit juices. I'm used to the best bacon available from a local farm and this met my very high standards and indeed, was one of the reasons I booked this place, having seen positive comments about the breakfast. Tintern itself is lovely and, although we only stayed one night as we were at a wedding, there appears to be no shortage of good places to eat locally and it's a well served location on a main road not far from Chepstow. I can see why a few people might not like it here, but in my book, you'd have to be very picky or suffer from OCD (the real thing, not just minor niggles) to say that The Old Rectory was anything other than charming. We are already saying we'll go back.

Room Tip: We had the larger room at the back and although it didn't have the views of the river, its own s...

We stayed here for three nights and delighted in the warm welcome we received in this perfectly placed B&B in Tintern. The parking space was useful but we then mostly walked or caught buses into Chepstow and Monmouth. The Wye Valley is such a great area to explore and our hosts had many maps and guide books to lend. The breakfasts are delicious with a wide choice at every stage of the proceedings. Do not miss the fried potatoes, cooked in a pan all of their own. Plenty of local places to eat in the evenings.

Room Tip: All the rooms looked lovely but the one at the back has its own private entrance and an attractive e...

Perched on the hillside overlooking the beautiful Wye River Valley, this B&B is marvelous. Great walks all around on both the Welsh and English sides. We spent time just watching cows in the pasture across the winding river from our room. The breakfasts were superb and we would gladly come back for another three nights to this delightful place.

Room Tip: Ask for a River view room.

We had a lovely, restful one night stay here. Ian and Anika could not have been more welcoming and generous. We had a very quiet room at the back with a private entrance. Our bed was exceptionally comfortable and the breakfast was fabulous. Thank you :) Mary and Mark
