Staff on first hand were great. Very friendly and helpful. Rooms were excellently clean. Bedding and towells fresh. As could happen with any hotel, my wife and I were woken up by other guests being very noisy but the night porter dealt with it brilliantly. There were only two items that stand out. The lift didn't stop exactly at the... More

This hotel is an embarrassment to Tenby. The reception is a clue of how bad it is- the staff couldn't care less! We had the top floor so had an amazing view of the beach. But- seriously this is the dirtiest hotel ever- it's a joke they have the cheek to charge people. The bathroom door had a massive gap... More

This has to be the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. Lovely sea view if you could see through the filthy windows. Room filthy, carpet not hoovered, hair on the table, broken shower, broken toilet seat, hot water from cold tap and cold water from hot tap, electrical sockets hanging off the wall, dirty ripped curtains, gap between window...

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
