Central and serene--this was well nigh perfect accommodation in Hay-on-Wye. Although I'd stayed in other Hay B&Bs before and been satisfied, the Tinto House website looked promising and certainly worth a try. It turns out that Karen Clare and her husband John have created a small jewel in the heart of Hay. Their welcome is warm, the rooms are comfortable, handsomely (but not ostentatiously) furnished, and sparkling clean. Breakfast is excellent. Maps, literature, and good advice are readily available. Hay is at the front doorstep, but when you've had enough of bookshops and shopping in general there is a well-planned and carefully-tended garden through the archway at the back of the house. Guests are warmly invited to enjoy this haven for as long as they like. For this traveler the search for a good place to stay in Hay is over. I can't imagine a better spot.
