We decided to visit Tintern this week to go and see the Abbey. We booked via late rooms and read the last few reviews of this place on Trip Advisor. Because of this we were really looking forward to our stay. The hosts were very friendly and the breakfast was lovely. Unfortunately, this does not make up for the horrible smell of wet dog that was pervasive throughout the B&B, but particularly in the entrance hall, dining room and sitting room, which were very neat and tidy and old fashioned, but were unfortunately not clean at all. The main problem was that the owners 2 or possibly 3 little dogs have the run of the place and created a horrible persistent smell of dog throughout the property, and thus it was just not clean. Our rooms were superficially clean, but the smell of dogs was even in the bedrooms. Extremely off-putting (even though I like dogs!) We would certainly not recommend staying here unless you have dogs and really don't mind the very strong smell of dogs everywhere. We won't be staying here again.
