“Fantastic place to stay with very welcoming hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

Easy to find and located ideally if you need somewhere central to visit local attractions. Superb rooms of a higher than expected quality. We had an evening meal which can be the downfall of a hotel like this but I have to say both our meals were served promptly and were better than we expected and I would reccomend the restaurant as something any guest has to try whilst staying there, the food really is worth it.

The hosts spent time getting to know us offering advice on local attractions and were both very friendly, we were even introduced to the local expert Dai who gave us interesting information about our destination the following day which you would definately not find in any tourist book..

The breakfasts are varied and cater for most diets and the full breakfast uses good quality ingredients which you don't always find in hotels and was superbly cooked.

This was our first visit and it definately wont be our last.

Stayed here several times over the past 3 years on buisness trips for one night . It has just had additional accomodation opened with some great views over the countryside from new appartments which are very well finished having a seperate lounge , bedroom and bathroom with large shower . The food is always good and staff very friendly . Location wise , its not more than 15 mins away from the beach at Tenby and rooms are quite reasonably priced .

Room Tip: Ask for one of the new appartments

Although only staying one night, I found the hotel very clean and comfortable. Did not arrive until the evening and as I was the only one staying that night they offered to open up the kitchen for me. I did not take up this offer as I thought it unreasonable at short notice, but judging by the breakfast I am confident the food would be first class as were the deco of the bedroom, lounge and bar. Host very friendly and helpful. nothing was to much trouble. First class and would be my first choice when I stay in Pembroke again.

Stayed here two nights with elderly parents visting family in Tenby. Ideally located for visiting Tenby and other local attractions, although you will need a car. Hotel sits in a small dip off the road, currently having a large extension built which will double amount of rooms (but no noise disturbance from builders). Bedrooms are clean, modern and comfortable, although previous reviewer is correct that room 6 does have a slighly damp feel but not too much of a problem. Large lounge with comfortable sofas and a bar. Modern dining room was good too. Main attraction for us was the food which was excellent, fabulous large breakfasts and plenty of extras. Dinners were well priced from a varied menu and perfectly cooked and presented. Our host Julie was lovely, very professional and very friendly. Nearby Narbeth is well worth a visit, fantastic range of independent shops in a pretty high street with lots of good places to eat and drink. We will definitely return to Manian Lodge.

Cannot comment on the rooms as i was visiting for a meal but WOW what a meal, absolutely first class - i'd go so far as to say it's the best meal i've had since I moved to Wales 4.5 years ago! Staff were friendly and accommodating, the lounge/bar area was comfortable and cosy and I can't wait to visit again!

Manian lodge is well situated for some work I do in this area. They are very friendly and flexible with eating times - within reason.
The rooms are clean and have all you need.
The food is always very good and you may struggle to get up the stairs afterwards.
Breakfast has a wide selection and if you go for the cooked breakfast you wont need lunch.

I stayed at the Manion Lodge Hotel for two nights, in a twin bedded room situated on the ground floor (room 6). I had some reservations about this room on arrival as it is right next to the reception desk. However, I was not disturbed by noise at all throughout my stay.

The room was quite cold (and damp) and I feel this was attributed to where the room was positioned - in a dip with not much sunlight, even though it was sunny.

Julie was very welcoming and friendly, and the breakfast was absolutely wonderful (and filling!).

The only negative comments I feel I should point put is the room had an awful damp smell, and there was a really strong air freshner placed in the room, which I had to remove as it affected my chest. I presume this was placed there to mask the damp smell. The extra blankets in the wardrobe also smelt musty. The shower was difficult in that it was hard to get the hot water to work. Also, the waste bins (room and bathroom) wasn't emptied all the time I was there. The cleaning of the room appeared to be minimal.

I probably would stay here again if i was in this area but I would definitely not want room 6!
