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

We booked a 2 night stay here for September 2013. My family and I have been visiting the town for over 25 years and have never been disappointed with any accommodation we have stayed in. Until now. The staff were rude and unhelpful, the hotel was run down, and the rooms were in a league of their own. The windows... More

Great location, and views. Staff friendly but not very motivated. Big family room Breakfast served efficiently and nice toast. No car parking, but you expect that in Tenby Room and rest of hotel is very tired looing and could do with updating, however it depends on how much time you spend there.
