This hotel has new owners who are doing renovations this year. The building is amazing but in need of some TLC. We enjoyed our Christmas stay and were very impressed with the food. Not as Christmassy as some places we have stayed. A Christmas card in your room is a nice touch. Intend to visit again sometime.

We stayed here for New Years Eve and it was an absolutely wonderful night. What a beautifully charming building set in an idyllic coastal spot, perfect for walks along the beach to Tenby (which we did the next morning) and not far from the beautiful Broadhaven beach, Stackpole head, Barafundle bay and the Bosherston Lakes. This area has so much... More

We are a family of 5; 2 adults and 3 children so we always require at least 2 rooms, what the owner at Penally Abbey offered us was absolutely perfect, 2 great modern ensuite rooms which were annexed to have their own entrance, thus giving complete privacy moving between rooms with a kind of entrance lobby of its own.

We returned to Penally Abbey after a 20 year gap to be welcomed by the new owner, Melanie, who set tea and her own-made Welsh cakes in front of the fire in the lounge - a very welcoming, not to say delicious start to our stay. Yes, the hotel is in need of refurbishment in some areas, but the owners,... More

It was a lovely room with a 2 seater setee and an armchair as well as a four poster bed and wonderful views over the golf course to the sea beyond.The location is very peaceful. The bed linen and towels were good quality and the bed very comfortable.... More

It's refreshing to find owners who love their hotel, warts and all so much that it creates the kind of welcome you would expect when visiting good friends or family. From the minute you arrive the Abbey starts to woo you with its charm and character. So what it the old stairs creak or the floorboards groan, who cares when... More

We have just returned from a 4 night stay and oh how relaxing it was! The new owners were extremely welcoming ,the staff were friendly and the place had a great feel.Special but not stuffy is probably how I would describe it. We stayed in a beautifully decorated spacious room which was sea facing with superb views. What more could... More

If you want something above a standard chain hotel, I can recommend the Penally Abbey Hotel. Although not cheap the food and service were to a high standard, but what set it apart was the general appearance and ambience reflecting the understated class of a bygone age. Well worth a short stay, and I would not hesitate in going back... More
