The hotel is in a gorgeous setting with fantastic views and only a short way from the bustling town of Tenby. The food is absolutely superb with a wide variety of choice for everyone... the steak and scallops are not to be missed! The hotel has recently been acquired by lovely warm welcoming owners, who have given the hotel a... More

Some people may say that the fabric of the hotel is a little "tired" but this does not detract from the warm welcome, the excellent service and the fabulous food. The breakfast waitress is a gem ! The views across the golf course to the sea are magnificent. This hotel has just acquired a new owner who realises that some... More

We stayed for four nights here during a period of gorgeous summer weather in June 2014. Penally Abbey was comfortable and full of old fashioned charm. Our two sons (9 and 6) were made to feel very welcome. Our large room was set up comfortably (the only thing it lacked was a small fridge to store treats and milk for... More

We stayed here for three nights, and it was a very enjoyable experience. The reception rooms in the hotel are particularly attractive, the terrace and garden inviting, and the general feel of the hotel very relaxing. All the staff were very helpful and attentive and made us feel totally at home. Food excellent, and the menu changed each night we... More

Just returned from a short break in Tenby. We booked at Penally Abbey for one night and what an enchanting place it is. Such a stunning old building in a magical location. You'll feel right at home and welcome as Steve and Eileen and the other staff are so nice. Little wonder that many celebrities have chosen to stay there,... More

We very much enjoyed our 5 night stay in this quaint hotel, full of old fashioned charm. Being picky you could say that it is slightly 'tired' around the edges in places but nothing that spoilt our stay in any way and this merely adds to the overall character. The owners and staff were all very friendly and helpful -... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Penally Abbey is a small Country House Hotel and Restaurant situated in an elevated position, adjacent to the the 12th Century church in the pretty floral village of Penally.Penally, is only 1.5mls from the beautiful medieval walled town of Tenby with its cobbled streets, ancient ramparts, picturesque harbour, and long sandy beaches in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park.The 'Abbey' is pretty rather than grand. The rooms are beautifully proportioned and sympathetically decorated and furnished to compliment the style of the building. Unusual features are the large ogee head doors and windows through which one can see views of Tenby Golf Course, Caldey Island and across the bay toward the Gower peninsular.We serve unpretentious food in beautiful surroundings. Our staff are friendly but not too intrusive. Our rooms are warm, clean and comfortable. We are only 800yds from Tenby's South Beach. But most importantly we offer the warmest welcome in Wales. ... more   less
