Although accessed by outside stairs, Room 11 is charming. Excellent bed, good bathroom facilities, superb view (through the door). Lovely sitting room, sun room. Superb breakfasts. Good food at reasonable prices. Attentive, friendly service. Penally Abbey is THE place to stay if you are near Tenby.

We've just come back from a five day stay in room 12 at this lovely, delightful, family run hotel. When you arrive you're greeted with warmth and immediately feel "at home" . We loved room 12, although you have to climb some outside steps to reach it, but well worth it! Overlooks beautiful gardens from the door and has a... More

We stumbled across the hotel online when planning a trip to Pembrokeshire, and we were so pleasantly surprised when we arrived. Recently renovated, the rooms are beautifully decorated and so comfortable--elegant without being stuffy. The food is fantastic and the staff are attentive and friendly. We met one of the owners, Melanie Boissevain, as well as her son and daughter,... More

An excellent lunch. Garden and hotel were good with fantastic views out to sea. Went there with our daughter and family to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary. Will definitely visit again. An excellent find hidden in the small village of Penally in between Tenby and Lidstep.

We visited as a last minute birthday treat. The combination of a beautiful large room and good quality restaurant was just what we were looking for in a winter break. Our 10 year old shared the room with us but it was so big that she had a bed at one end of the room and there was still room... More

Didn't quite live up to its potential. Polish a few things and the place would then be worth its high price. Only scores a 4 on the National Hygiene Register (unless this is a legal requirement to display not sure why anything less than a 5 is displayed?). Owners very friendly. Comfortable restaurant, lounge and bar area. Restaurant food very... More

we went for an evening meal at Penally Abbey after reading good reviews, the food was excellent and the staff very friendly. Lucas showed us around the gardens and we will definitely make the effort to stay here next time we come to this area.

We stopped at the hotel for 2 nights to attend a birthday party in Tenby. We stopped in room 11 which is large, immaculate and well equipped with the most enormous bathroom. Walk in shower plus bath etc. A large mirror would be an improvement but this is a minor criticism! We only ate breakfast as we were at the... More

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
