I arrived at this hotel at 12.45 am on the 9/8 having been on ferry from Ireland. When I made the booking I had explained that we would be late checking in and was told that this was no problem. Whilst still on the ferry my husband received a phone call asking us why we were not in reception as... More

We arrived in early afternoon and were promptly directed to our room. We were instantly impressed by the atmosphere and very well preserved old style design. However, there was no lift, only stairs, and no help was offered to bring our luggage up to the room on the second floor. Our room was nice and comfy, the windows had charming... More

I took my wife on a business trip and we were warmly welcomed. There was no problem accommodating us both despite giving no warning that I would be accompanied. The rooms are larger than we expected well equipped free wifi warm and clean. Bathroom newly refurbished and clean. We had a lovely meal with clients and after dinner drinks. Our... More

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
