We stayed here for 2 nights in June. This place has a good car park and extends further back and has more rooms than the frontage suggests. Make sure you have a map of how to access the car park at the rear of the hotel - we had to stop at tourist information to ask the way. Our room... More

We didn't stay at this hotel, we were just visiting the castle, but went in for lunch. I have to say that this was the best and most reasonably priced food we'd eaten during our week in Pembrokeshire. The lamb was delicious and melted in the mouth, my husband said the pork belly was 'amazing', the accompanying vegetables were also... More

Absolutely fantastic hotel. A family run business with a great chef. The food was really, really good. The room was clean and equipped with everything needed for our stay. The free wifi was rarely needed since advice as to where to visit was readily given out by the staff. Definitely worth a visit.

Stayed one night on business. The single room was clean and tidy but basic and slightly dated (ie concealed lighting straight from the 1980s). Bathroom very clean and more recently modernised. Very good cooked breakfast. Good value for money

Stayed here whilst cycling. Rooms were clean, but noisy if near the kitchens. Bedrooms varied between the three of us. Part of the appeal of the hotel had been the advertised free Wi-fi and Sky sports 1 and 2 as standard. Unfortunately none of the three of us were able to access these; having said that, we didn't speak to... More

I stayed here as a female lone business traveller. I was booked in for 2 nights but made my excuses after the first and booked in elsewhere. My room was in what looks similar to an outbuilding. As I was on my own I didn't feel safe here at all. The man on the front desk was friendly enough but... More

I had reason to stay in Pembroke for a couple of nights and fell upon this place through a last minute booking agent. I found the place to be clean, the food excellent and the staff very helpful. It was good value for money and after my two nights there I was sorry to be moving on. This place certainly... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights and had a nice relaxing time, the staff were very friendly and welcoming during my stay. Breakfast was good and the bar meals were very good. I used this hotel as my base whilst travelling around the area and plan to return at some time in the future.

Stayed for two weeks on business. Rooms are comfy yet lack that finishing touch. Can't say for all rooms. But eing an old place, original features (uneven creeky floors, beams and decor) its character definately charms. If you want basic, clean accom then this is the place for you. A special mention has to be made re the food here... More

Arrived in Pembroke on the day of our first wedding anniversary and our first choice venue for food was closed, so done a search and came across the Old Kings Arms. Firstly........ Wow!! A period building, that's clean and tidy, not too much clutter but enough to raise talking points, old style furniture and great old fashion fire place. Food-... More
