Very satisfied. Nice room, friendly and helpful staff, fine restaurant incorporated. Stroll to beach, castle and 12th century Norman church. Very peaceful. Nice cat lounging in the sunshine. We had a sea view out the window, and the environs had a bit going on.

Not sure how hotels get rated. On the whole if we pick a 4* establishment we are not usually disappointed. The Castlemead could be a charming hotel however there are so many things which caused concern. We would imagine the age group visiting would be 50+. There are 14 stairs down from reception to the dining area. And there are... More

Firstly I am sorry you were disappointed with your stay. No where do we claim to be 4 star hotel , we are a 4 star restaurant with rooms. Neither do we set out to attract a50 plus clientele , a large proportion of our customers are cliff path walkers and stairs not an issue , had we realised this... More

A long-time resident of Manorbier tried to warn us (diplomatically) about the Castlemead when we said we had dinner reservations there. We should have listened. The restaurant boasts of its 4-star rating, and the menu looks good on paper, but every one of our three different entrees and appetizers was tasteless, poorly prepared, and took forever to arrive. The service... More

This hotel has a lovely setting, within a short distance of the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed the food on offer and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone heading to Pembrokeshire.

We had a short break in this small and lovely hotel. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The food was excellent both at breakfast and in evening. We chose a small double room but it had everything we needed for a comfortable and restful stay. The location of Castlemead is perfect for relaxing by the beach or for walking the... More

We stayed here for a couple of days just to enjoy a short break near the Pembrokeshire coastal path. The hotel is very comfortable and our room (number 8) has superb views out towards the bay across the gardens. I would definitely recommend this room if you are booking to stay here. The castle is right next door – and... More

Following a visit to Manorbier earlier in the year, we knew that Castlemead would be the perfect setting for our wedding reception . The location, beautiful views sealed it for us.

We stayed here for 3 nights recently to attend a wedding reception far away from home. The food was excellent and the views from some of the rooms and the grounds surely cannot be beaten!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Castlemead is beautifully situated at the head of a small wooded valley, overlooking the sea, Norman church & castle.Set in half an acre of pleasant, mature grounds and lawns it offers a gloriously relaxing spot, in the heart of the village, yet only 500 yards from the beach. A small comfortable unpretentious 4 star restaurant with rooms, we have an excellent reputation for good food. out door dining in the summer months, and warm cosy meals by the fire come winter.We have nine bedrooms all en suite with beverage facilities/colour T.V. The restaurant, lounge bar all enjoy glorious views, giving direct access to the garden. Three of our rooms are situated in the Coach house set 20 yards from the main building across the car park, ideal for guests who have problems with stairs or wish to bring there dogs with them. Family rooms are available, central heating is throughout, with open fires to warm you when necessary. Castlemead offers an idyllic spot for walkers as the coastal path crosses the car park at the bottom of our garden, bird watchers and nature lovers. ... more   less
