“Welcoming Hosts - to some!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This building itself is impressive, great location and our room was spotless. Nice breakfast though the cumberland sausage was a frozen sausage not fresh. The hosts were very hospitable to some, but we felt that they were not as friendly towards us despite our attempts to engage in conversation. it's difficult to put our finger on it and we really hope it wasn't because we are a same sex couple!
But we were left feeling disappointed - though the lady who cleans the room was great! It has been a while since I have been made to feel uncomfortable by hoteliers - we won't be returning, which is a real shame.

Peter and Angela made us very welcome and there was a very relaxed atmosphere coupled with very efficient service.
Décor throughout was in good order.
The room was clean, spacious, well-appointed and very comfortable. (I couldn't understand a previous reviewer's complaint about the shower - we also were on the top floor and I used the shower each end of the day during the recent hot spell and it was perfectly fine.)
Good choice for breakfast including a very nicely prepared full-English.
We stayed four nights and ate in for three of them - plenty to choose from, all good, sound English cuisine and we enjoyed all that we had. There was also a good choice of wine to go with the meals.
No hesitation in recommending Parva Farmhouse.

Room Tip: The quietest rooms are at the back, overlooking the river.

Stayed at Parva Farmhouse for 3 nights in recent heatwave. Our room was a little small but well-appointed - we really needed the fan which was supplied. Excellent Residents' Lounge with very well-stocked honesty bar. Excellent breakfasts and Dinner, they really deserve their recent AA Awards. River/rural location great.
Hope Frodo is OK
We'll be back

I stayed three nights.

Bed was comfortable.
Perfectly clean
Breakfast is good
Good Cheese Bread with Dinner

I could almost see the river, lying on the bed.
The views from all but 2 bedrooms are good and fairly tranquil
Resident dog is well behaved

Location is good...1 mile walk to The Abbey.
Historic Church next door.

Easy, and beautiful, drives to Hereford, Hay-On-Wye, Forest of Dean, Gloucester, Chepstow.

Access "road" is fairly narrow, and view of cars running on main road is poor.
Car parking is public, with no reserved places for the guest house. On some
days the last car in may not find parking!

Dinner is 3 courses for £21 A glass of wine £3.60
Dinner was quite good, but vegetables were not first rate (should be fresh and tasty)
I had apple and blackcurrant "crumble" which was very tasty, but probably not cooked
long enough, as I could distinctly taste the sugar, and the flour
Dinner, overall, a little bit too expensive for the quality.


Hairdryer was not strong enough

Room Tip: Do not book rooms with "garden view", unless you are running out of options in the area...

We only stopped here for one night as we were at a wedding nearby. It's a beautiful part of the world and the guesthouse is next to a small church on a bend in the River Wye. The accommodation was great and we had a good nights sleep and a lovely breakfast in the morning. It would have been good to stay for longer.

Our two night stay last week proved to be another success. Angela & Peter again made us both welcome and the accommodation as before first class including breakfast and dinner each day.
The area has plenty to offer walkers both locally and further afield.
Frodo the resident canine is an absolute charmer, never ever getting in the way though quietly enjoys the attention of those around him.
To be able to travel about an hour from our home and settle into a relaxing establishment with so much beauty around, absolute heaven. Maureen Harris.

We spent two nights at the Parva Guesthouse and enjoyed a very pleasant stay. The room was comfortable and clean although the floor was annoyingly creaky but to be expected to a degree with a building this old! The bathroom was clean with a decent shower and plenty of hot water. My only little niggle was that the towels were on the small side. We were in room 3 which gave splendid views of the river and the valley. Breakfast was decent with very nice bacon in particular and we enjoyed a good meal in the restaurant on our second night. The hosts were very friendly and helpful, not too in-your-face but around when you needed them. Tintern itself is a good base for the attractions of the Wye Valley and plenty to see and do locally without even getting into the car.

Room Tip: Go for a river view if you can
