We stayed here for 1 night having been camping for the previous 2 so were really looking forward to a comfy bed and hot shower. The bed was fine, although it was a very snug double! The shower had bad pressure but not awful. I've got to say the décor doesn't look as though it's been updated for a good... More

We knew that there was no parking at the hotel so my wife stayed in the car whilst I unloaded. Reception took my name and gave directions to car parks (two within 300 yards £7/24 hours or 500 yards multi-story at £2/24 hours). We parked in the multi-story and walked back to the hotel. When we went to Reception, the... More

We travelled by train to Tenby the trip was lovely but there was only one train every 2 hours from Swansea, which was a bit of a pain. We walked to the hotel and was greeted by a wonderful room with absolutely breath taking views of the bay, St Catherine's Island Caldy Island and St Margaret's Island, we were there... More

Room ok, we had sea view, worth the extra money. Just across road from town wall, great views Beach is across road, couldn't be much closer. Breakfast good choice, including smoked salmon. Bad points, no parking, there are couple car parks close by that charge £7 for 24 hours, if you fancy longer walk then multi storey for £2 for... More

We stayed here recently, on a once-off trip to Tenby, paying about €145 for a booking for a family room (B & B) with about a weeks notice. It was the last night of our holiday, and despite the many attractions of Tenby (and they are many), this hotel did not contribute to the overall holiday offering, despite the friendly... More

We stayed for two nights in june in the deluxe seaview room. The view was incredible to say the least. The room was gorgeous and worth every penny, clean, comfortable and furnished to perfection. The breakfast was good enough to set you up for the day and the service was great, nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely recommend... More

Great location, right on the sea front within easy walking distance of the town. Very welcoming, rooms were spacious and clean and the breakfast was lovely. Excellent value for money. Afternoon tea is available which was very enjoyable, taken in the dining room which overlooks the sea.

This hotel is exactly what you might expect from a seaside resort. Old, quaint and in need of work. It is very clean and the rooms are fairly spacious but the quality of the beds and bathroom is not wonderful. The staff are friendly and the breakfast was good. My shower was too hot to use so I had to... More
