We were supplied with another heater but room was huge to heat and I didnt have a shower my first night as cold. There is no car park so you have... More

You will not get a better view from any other Hotel, but as for the Hotel, its a very sad place that needs some TLC, The weather was typical, but the towels on the windowsills kept the rain out,if I came into money to refurbish this Hotel it would be a little goldmine, and the staff might like to smile...

The view from our huge bay window was spectacular and the location, just inside the old rown walls, could not have been better. This hotel did not have very good reviews previously but I went with my adult son and we liked it a lot. It was a little old fashioned but had character. The room was spacious and the... More

Established hotel overlooking North Beach, Tenby. We're local, but booked in for one night to save driving home after a night out - we managed to get a room with sea view. The views over Tenby Harbour and North Beach are absolutely stunning, the hotel is located directly across the road from North Beach. The Receptionist was helpful and pleasant... More

Stuck in a time warp! Apart from night security guy staff didn't crack a smile. Breakfast dried up small portions and really not great! £200 for a 2 night stay, robbing!!!! However the view is amazing, especially the sunrise over the harbour. (See pic posted from room 102)

First time visit to the stage door cafe bar and it was ok. The menu is limited so we settled for jacket spuds with cheese and beans served with a side salad. Staff are very good and our food was piping hot and filling. I suppose at under £15 for two including drinks it is reasonable. Not sure if we... More

If you are like me and have had to put up with the obligatory "L" shaped hotel bedroom (2 star, 3 star 4 star or 5 star) and hate them all, this is no different, however the location is perfect, set out side the hotel and you are on the beach (well al most...just cross the road). Bedrooms are just... More

A friend and I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. The view from our room overlooking the bay is wonderful. The hotel is in a poor condition and not attractive at all on the outside. Inside is a bit better. Our room was clean, the beds were good, but on the whole the hotel needs an enormous investment to... More

By far the best feature of this hotel is its location right on the front, overlooking the beach. If you get a room on this side of the hotel (as we did), you will have an excellent view of the bay and surrounding area.The Lion is an old hotel with the signs of faded gentility one often associates with seaside...
