We stayed one night here and would have stayed much longer!! It is so beautiful, the decor, the sea views, the open fires, the grounds are all spectacular .. It is in a fantastic historical location, a walk down the beach finds you in Tenby!! We managed breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea ( a must) & dinner... All on separate days... More

Overall, our stay at Penally Abbey was pleasant. The christmassy feel captured in the hotel was most welcoming. The hotel's decor is beautiful and the views from the restaurant are breath taking. We stayed in room 6 and it was gorgeous. Lovely view and a nice seating area to enjoy it! Food is good; particularly breakfast, although the portions were... More

The hotel is set high above the beach at Penally. We arrived and were greeted by the friendly staff who were happy to keep our luggage until our rooms were ready and gave us walking directions to Tenby via the coast. We checked into our 2 rooms in the Coach House annexe Room 10 was downstairs and Room 12 upstairs... More

It was my first visit to the Penally Abbey Hotel but will definitely not be my last. Staff are very friendly and cannot do enough for you, location is perfect overlooking the sea and golf course. Lounge and bar are very comfortable and welcoming, perfect for one of those wet and windy Winter Pembrokeshire evenings. Superb meal in the restaurant,... More

The first time I went to Penally Abbey was in the year 2000 on my first date with the man who is now my Husband! It was lovely then but last year it was bought by the dynamic couple, Mel & Lucas. They have completely renovated it under Mels direction as an experienced interior designer. And what a makeover. Mel... More

Our room was large with a 4 poster bed which was extremely comfortable. A great view out to the sea with amazing sunrises and sunsets. Large comfortable bathroom as well. Restaurant at the hotel was excellent; good tasty food; we ate there twice. We would go back again if we go to Tenby Wales.

A birthday treat - we always look for a hotel with "that little extra" and found it at Penally Abbey hotel. Our room (3) was spacious and well appointed and the staff were welcoming and friendly. We ate in the restaurant and the food was well prepared and presented. Breakfast was equally good and we'd happily return should we stay... More

Booked this hotel for my daughter and her partner as a special treat for her 21st. The staff were truly amazing, the food outstanding and her stay was more than I could have wished for. Flowers and wine I had ordered were put in her room ready for her arrival. Staff contacted me as requested so I could pay for... More

After reading the reviews on this hotel and the fact that it was listed 5* we booked one night last week. When we arrived we went to reception but were led back to the car park where there were a set of steep metal steps leading up the side of the hotel to two rooms which would not be easy... More
