Ours was an impromptu 3 night stay, occasioned by the last-minute cancellation of another holiday. We felt in need of some pampering and Penally Abbey delivered on every count.
The hotel is run efficiently and with style by the genial husband and wife team. Our room was spacious and clean; the four-poster bed and 'sink into' leather sofas were very comfortable; there was copious hot water for the bath and shower with fluffy towels and toiletries replaced daily but the highlight was the wonderful food, cooked to perfection by Elleen. There was plenty of choice for each of the courses and a special diet presented no problem. A gluten-free dessert was prepared on the 2nd night which was pronounced 'delicious'.
We have stayed at a number of country house hotels and have always enjoyed the ambience and idiosyncracies that go with the territory. You are unlikely to find travertine tiles and walk-in showers but you should expect comfort and service with a smile and this you will find at the Abbey.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Penally Abbey is a small Country House Hotel and Restaurant situated in an elevated position, adjacent to the the 12th Century church in the pretty floral village of Penally.Penally, is only 1.5mls from the beautiful medieval walled town of Tenby with its cobbled streets, ancient ramparts, picturesque harbour, and long sandy beaches in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park.The 'Abbey' is pretty rather than grand. The rooms are beautifully proportioned and sympathetically decorated and furnished to compliment the style of the building. Unusual features are the large ogee head doors and windows through which one can see views of Tenby Golf Course, Caldey Island and across the bay toward the Gower peninsular.We serve unpretentious food in beautiful surroundings. Our staff are friendly but not too intrusive. Our rooms are warm, clean and comfortable. We are only 800yds from Tenby's South Beach. But most importantly we offer the warmest welcome in Wales. ... more less
