We booked three nights with dinner here and paid a premium (£160 b and b) based on some positive reviews on this site. The hotel is in a beautiful building with sea views from the lounge and dining rooms, and despite having to enter the car park through the narrowest entrance ever, first impressions were positive. However our room, number... More

Here at Penally Abbey we were all so disappointed to read this review and are so sorry that your stay with us was not up to your expectations. At the time of your visit we had been in residence for just a month so this did come as quite a blow. On the morning of your departure nothing was mentioned... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and it was a very relaxing short trip experience. The credit goes to the new owners of the place who managed everything really well despite a few temporary glitches.

We stayed here for 2 nights mid week and had a wonderful, relaxing stay! The new owners and staff couldn't do more to make you feel at home; the rooms are spacious and luxurious and the sea views are to die for. We ate in the restaurant on one night and couldn't fault the food either, the menu is extensive... More

Stayed here for one night in the gorgeous Room 5 with the kids - the new owners couldn't have done enough for us - the Chefs are to be congratulated on one of the best meals we have had for a while and the wine list was superb. Can't wait to see what the forthcoming improvements and renovations may bring... More

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: My wife and I stayed here for a week - and found it a most agreeable experience. The reception rooms are remarkably attractive – as are the terrace and garden. The staff—who are accommodating and conscientious—made us feel entirely at home. The cuisine is admirable – with a menu that changes daily: with a wide variety of choice.... More

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!

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

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
