“Very pleasant stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

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

We stayed at the Parva Guesthouse in mid April 2013 for five nights and enjoyed the hospitality of its Owners. The old farmhouse had a certain charm, very pleasing on the eye, with its rustic rooms and décor. Our room was very comfortable and the evening meals and breakfasts were very tasty.
The surrounding areas were beautiful, with many interesting sites and walks close by

Room Tip: Ask for room 8 as this overlooks the river frontage

Tintern is an excellent base for a few days. Stunning Tintern Abbey is a mile walk along the beautiful River Wye. Abbey Mill, local Vineyard and other attractions all make for an interesting village spread out along the river bank. Forest of Dean, Monmouth, Chepstow very close by. B&B with 8 rooms enabled our small group of 5 couples to enjoy a short break away in very convivial and informal surroundings. Bedrooms have great views over the river. Room 5 with a shower and double bed very comfortable with plenty of drawer and hanging space. Good size lounge, with honesty bar, large enough to accommodate a full house as was the restaurant which offered a good choice, good quality 3 course dinner for £21 and reasonable wine list. Breakfast fine. Angela and Peter very welcoming. Homely rather than refined.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms have best views but second flight of stairs might challenge the less mobile!"

Beautiful building but a tight turn in from the main road, suggest you turn in from the car park of the pub opposite.
Rooms pleasant but needs a bit of updating. Clean and comfortable but old wall paper.
The lounge has a good selection of drinks and an honesty pad to record your drinks.
Food is OK, especially the breakfasts, but the evening meal, when we were there was a little disappointing.
A major plus is that they welcome dogs and are on the Wye Valley walk. Don't try to drive along the exit road towards Tintern unless you have a narrow car! My landrover almost caught its wing mirrors, I had to reverse out!

Room Tip: No pool and don't swim in the river! The Wye walk makes a superb fitness centre!

Stayed for two nights in the Parva Farmhouse recently. Found it quite dated but is set in a nice location. The breakfast in the morning wasn't anything special, but the rooms were very clean, and it has a nice lounge room, which was a lovely place to relax. Found it slightly overpriced for what it offered but it is located in a beautiful area.

Been meaning to write a review for ages but kept forgetting. We stayed here last year and all in all had an extremely nice stay. Fantastic food in their restaurant with plenty of choice. Bathrooms a little dated but clean and in good working order.

A lovely location - we stayed in the winter but could imagine how much better the natural area would look in the summer. We had a comfortable and well lit room. We enjoyed the beautiful, warm and cosy lounge, with Chesterfields to relax in and a huge wood-burning stove. There was very reasonably priced and well-stocked  'honesty' bar. We had good value and delicious evening meals  served in the welcoming dining room and an excellent cooked breakfast using local produce. The owners, Peter and Angela, did their utmost to ensure we were at home.
