Despite the weather we had a wonderful long weekend with friends, the staff were amazing and made us all so welcome. Super location and the view from our room (when the mist finally cleared!) was gorgeous. Our room was perfect-relaxing & very spacious, with a charming bathroom down a few steps. Fabulous quality food in the restaurant and for our... More

Great meal in an historic abbey. Tastefully renovated but retains character. Dishes were are delicious and well presented. One for the must return list. Stayed some years ago. It rooms have been renovated since then. Trifle was amazing - try it.

My wife and I stayed for three days in The Penally Abbey Hotel and we really should hush about it, because we don't want it to be full the next time we visit Wales :-). This was a delightful place, with an excellent staff and a superb kitchen. The Penally Abbey is now officially on our personal list of favorites,... More

Our stay at Penally Abbey is proof positive that the quality of a stay is dependent on so many things, but that the most important are the warmth of the welcome and your personal fit with the atmosphere and the environment created by your hosts. You need to click with a place. After a genuinely warm welcome at check in,... More

My husband and I stayed in the 'coach house', room 9, for four nights. There is a steep incline up to the hotel (which may be a slight struggle for some cars) which has beautiful views- especially in the restaurant and garden. Location: Less than 10 minute drive to Tenby city centre. Parking: there is space for about 10 cars.... More

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

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
