What can I say that hasn't been said already. The hotel has great views over north beach and the harbour, but is it worth the money? We thought that the hotel owners must like Game of Thrones, the manager wandered around aimlessly like the lost brother of Hodor, he was like a thin version of the giant and we kept... More

My wife and I spent two nights in Tenby before our return home. We selected the Royal Lion based on location and some 'reasonable' reviews. The place could be lovely, instead we met with amibalence, grot and grime! Our room on the 1st floor was big and spacious with a fabulous view of Tenby Harbour and Carmarthen Bay. The bed... More

This hotel is disgusting, dirty and unkempt. It has a wheelchair accessible sign - I would defy anyone in a wheelchair to get around this hotel. The place should be shut down. We were put on the fourth floor and told there was a lift, the lift only goes to the 3rd floor, my aged parents had to struggle up... More

After a day in the beautiful town of Tenby we decided to stop for a coffee and watch the sun go down. Our luck was in. We saw the excellently positioned Royal Lion Hotel with sign outside advertising coffees hot drinks and cakes. We were with my dad who has mobility issues. He parked his scooter and climbed the access... More

Really not nice stay! But for one night it was ok! Prepare for shabby conditions! Not worth the money! Stay somewhere else! No wifi in the room noisy street not very nice conditions but the view was good! Won't be staying here again. Not worth paying for a view here!

Tired smelly hotel. In need of a good revamp, this is 2015 not the 1950s. Room 403 faces on to a brick wall. Cobwebs,stains on the lampshades,wardrobe on a slant, tv not working no remote control, mirrors dirty carpet stains everywhere, paper and dirt under the bed. My mistake is that I stayed one night. My tip is to stay... More

Just an overnight stay - the room cost us £95 and never in a million years is it worth it, the only good thing i can say about this hotel was the barmaid / person serving breakfast (same lady) she was really nice and friendly. The hotel is old and smells and is in need of some TLC, the Wifi... More

Reason for using the hotel: wedding anniversary. When I booked a few days before arriving I asked if an ice bucket and couple of glasses could be there waiting and it was. Asked for a sea view and I think we had the best view fo North beach and the harbour, certainly added to our experience of the place. yes... More
