“Lovely hotel with great owner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

We arrived last Friday and got greeted straight away by Simon the owner who checked us in. We went to our room and were pleased with the room. Within the room, it had a comfortable bed, flat screen TV, Hair dryer, fresh towels. I started panicking wondering where the toilet and shower were and I saw what I thought were wardrobe doors and found the toilet and shower in there!
If you are claustrophobic, then you wouldn't enjoy it but we found it quite amusing having a shower in a cupboard!
The breakfast was lovely and Simon was very accommodating throughout topping up our toast, tea and coffee.
The rooms were cleaned in the morning and it was cleaned very well.
Parking was fine, There was a car park run by the church who had very reasonable prices
I would stop there again as we had a lovely time.
Thanks

Had a great stay here!! The hotel owner/manager was very friendly and helpful and breakfast was great!! (honestly an amazing cooked breakfast) Customer service here is amazing.

The rooms are small (did like the shower) but then for location and the price its a bargain and if your like me and would rather spend your time out of the hotel than in, then it doesn't matter! There is free wifi in all rooms, though it does work better on the bottom floors.

There's not a lot of free parking (we did manage to get a free space on the road) but there is a a car park directly next to the hotel which is like £3.50 for the whole day or even better a short walk away there's a 24 hour multi-story which costs £2 for 24 hours.

Had a great stay and will defo be back!

Room Tip: Try and get room 2 or 3 - the wifi works better on the bottom floors and some rooms do not have en-s...

The Farnham Hotel is a very basic hotel with old-fashioned bedrooms and tiny bathrooms whose price is very adjusted to what you get.
The owner is very helpful, though I did not find him a couple of times I wanted to ask him something; he apparently leaves the building for some time and there is nobody to ask.
The breakfast is very good, and if you are lucky you can park freely in the same street of the hotel, without having to pay any car park.

spent 2 nights here as a week end getaway on arrival a note and key were left for our room. Abit disappointed with room 5 as quite small and dated shower and toilet very small (pictures on web site are misleading) .We found there could have been a bigger window for breakfast as 8-9 am is early especially as nobody in Tenby opens very early so what do you do had walked all the town by 10 am .Werent asked if we wanted the cooked breakfast so felt we had to eat it .No hair dryer in room as stated so glad id packed mine. Bed really comfortable just a shame nothing matched ie curtains and bed spreads its those little touches that count. Simon the owner very welcoming and chatty and willing to keep your coffee cup full.

Room Tip: room 5 a bit small

We have just spent one night here with our 2 sons aged 11 and 14;we were given 2 adjacent double rooms so we had plenty of space,much better than having a family room.The hotel was in view of the sea and very close to the main car park so there was no worry about where to leave the car.As other reviews suggest,the ensuite toilets and showers are compact but spotlessly clean as was the whole hotel so don't let it put you off!The beds were the best we have slept in in any hotel.Simon,the owner,is extremely welcoming and friendly and the service at breakfast was excellent.There is a selection of cereals, fruit and juice with endless toast ,tea and coffee to accompany the lovely cooked breakfast.We really are looking forward to our next Tenby mini-break!

We have spent a lot of hols in Tenby and usually stay near the station.We decided to try the other side of town and was glad we did.The Farnham hotel was very reasonably priced and was very comfortable.It was so peaceful and the bed was great.The toilet is a bit of a squeeze if you are more than sz 12 but it all adds to the fun.The breakfast was really tasty and well cooked.Simon , our host was very helpful.We will be back..

We stayed here for 2 nights in a double room. Great value for money. Decor was a little dated but this didnt bother us as we spent little time in the room. Shower and toilet were both clean but quite small, towels were soft and changed daily. Sea view from our room was lovely and we were literally a street away from the beach. Perfect! very nice welcome upon arrival and always happy to help with anything we needed. Breakfast was nice but we dont feel it was worth £5, however it was cooked well and drinks were always kept topped up. The weather was awful the last night of our stay so we decided to stay in. There was a drip from the ceiling near the window which left a puddle on the floor. We did mention this on our departure and he would sort it straight away. Parking can be awkward as very rarely there is room outside the hotel to park, But there is a pay and display car park right next to the hotel, with limited spaces. We paid £11 for 3 days, but could leave whatever time before 8pm on the 3rd day. Over all very pleased with our stay!! Thanks Simon!!

Room Tip: Ask for sea view, BUT... if you don't like/can't walk up lots of steep stairs then ask for a...
