We stayed for one night,. The room was tired, the bathroom door was paint bound and didn't close and the electricity socket was loose and dangerous. The windows were loose and let in the cold air, and the radiator didn't work, so the room was cold. Breakfast was Nice and the staffs were friendly and accommodating ( warned us about... More

Hotel was quite overpriced considering the condition of the rooms. The wallpaper was all peeling off the walls, the windows very rattly and had a huge draft coming through. Also walls were paper thin and you could hear people's full conversations from your own room. The carpet was foul and needs to be changed! Hotel staff were very friendly and... More

I stayed in this 'hotel' for what was suppose to be a week but lasted one night and wow what can I say... The room was disgusting (I wouldn't let my dog sleep there) the noise from the kitchen fans of the hotel start up at 7 in the morning and go off at 9 at night and the smell... More

This hotel richly deserves its place at the bottom of the Tenby hotel ratings. It's a dreary, dismal, depressing place. Expensive, very poor condition and staff who make it very clear they do not care yet get all offended when you dare to complain. Avoid this place like the plague and instead go to the smart new Premier Inn around... More

The central location and beach/ harbour make this hotel a great choice. The staff are helpful, beds comfortable; dining is fine & the price reflects this "tired" ambience of the place. It depends what you want I suppose!

Very unfriendly, rude staff. Too much trouble to speak. Hotel very unkempt, tatty carpet, curtains hanging off the rail, bathroom grotty, windows so dirty the beautiful view was shielded. Clearly the owners are so complacent about the beautiful location they think they don't need to invest. Overpriced and disappointing.

After spending most my childhood visiting tenby I thought I'd take my boyfriend so he could see the beautiful places. We turned up on a Friday night; unpacked the car, asked where to park and got a rude reply of 'I should get that tattood on my head' After squeezing into the lift that didn't feel safe at all, we...

A last minute booking ahead of a very busy weekend for Tenby, we only stayed one night as we were due to move on the next day. Staff were welcoming and helpful. The view from our bay window, which had a sitting area, overlooking the sea was beautiful. The hotel itself is in need of some TLC but it was... More
