Book a superior room (they are vast and comfortable and ditto the beds) and get down early for breakfast to sit at a table where you can bask in the sea view and the rising sun. This is a small, comfortable establishment. The owners, who taken over fairly recently, are hands on. They are helped by proficient and friendly staff.... More

Positives first: This is an interesting, one-off building. It occupies a pleasant spot, and we thought the food was good. There seemed, however, to be several little negatives. The car park was inadequate - in fact you could say shambolic. The wi-fi in the room was poor. The cleaner seemed happy to walk round with armfuls of unbagged used bedding.... More

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. Loved the interior, design and feeling of this lovely hotel. Peaceful and very relaxing. We stayed two nights and our room was stunning. Bed huge and extremely comfortable. Food in the restaurant was super. One small thing but quite important, was the young guy on the bar and serving drinks gave no eye contact and did not... More

A stylish but relaxed hotel with an intimate and warm atmosphere. The staff are friendly and welcoming and, from beginning to end, they made our stay very special. Afternoon tea in the little conservatory was excellent and our family celebration in the evening equally good. We will definitely be back.

My husband and I had a fabulous two night stay in May 2016. The room was beautifully equipped with a very comfortable four poster bed, great bathroom and to top it all a magnificent view across the coastline. The walks across the golf course to the beach and into the village is beautiful. A must is the boat ride across... More

My wife and I visited this hotel for a long weekend break for our wedding anniversary. We couldn't fault the hotel, accommodation, the food or the staff. The view from our on-suite room was breathtaking looking out over the coast line. The room itself was large and spotlessly clean. It's a relatively short walk through Penally village, across the road... More

The hotel staff and owners made my partner and I, along with our Irish Setter, all feel exceptionally welcome. The staff were all extremely courteous and friendly and they did everything to make our stay very memorable - from the wonderful food from the chef to giving us maps and directions for wonderful beach walks nearby. Our room was in... More

Whilst the access to Penally is not for the faint hearted: ( steep hairpin drive tight parking), once you drive thru the gateway a warm, personal welcome awaits, the hotel is rather boutique with 11 rooms each offering different views. Room 1 is situated in the eaves, it is comfortable and quiet with a lovely bathroom 5 ft away so... More

A stunning afternoon tea in a beautiful location. Service was lovely, refreshing to see staff with a smile on their face. All the sandwiches are cakes were fresh homemade and delicious. Coffee and tea to sink a battleship and one of the nicest coffees we've tasted. Will have to return to eat in the evening.

Although we didn't book the hotel accommodated us with a smile and good service. We enjoyed a lovely tea with welsh cakes in the garden. Well worth a visit the view is outstanding and what we saw of the inside of the hotel it is was comfortable and spotlessly clean.

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
