Reviewed March 31, 2014

I stayed here and the house is lovely but the landlady is very in your face and made me feel very uncomfortable and we were treated like children, I felt like I was being watched the whole time.. Will not go back again, too many rules and quite costly without breakfast...TS..

Room Tip: Any room just don't run a bath..lol

Horrible woman, took my money and didn't stick to terms and conditions! Don't hand over card details! She threatened to keep all of my money, which she took from my account weeks before she had a right to and then made out she was doing me a favour by returning most of it!

Am so shocked at the reviews, we booked pretty much the last minute as we had previously booked and
Paid for the hey wood mount spa hotel and they had gone in to administration. Marion the owner couldn't have been any nicer, she was extremely helpful and very accommodating , the breakfast was superb. We had a lovely time, room with jacuzzi bath was lovely , towels lovely and plenty of toiletries if needed, everything was there for coffee / tea making. Bed was extremely comfortable .we will definitely recommend to friends and we will stay there again .

ok... nice welcome. looked in room and flinched, we have a dogue de bordeaux and the room was cramped to say the least. landlady wanted to meet dog and had a fit about him dirtying the cream carpet. DOG FRIENDLY ?? i didnt know i was to bring my own carpet protectors, she proceeded to cover the floor with old towels. I didnt want to stay, but we had just driven 350 miles from scotland and my wife is dissabled and was looking forward to a nice hot bath. NO BATH!! just a small square shower cubicle, she couldnt get in it. didnt matter as there were no towels, well just one hand towel from another hotel. well we went out for some food (not in tenby) came back and made a cup of tea, yuck! immitation milk, it was disgusting. i went out and bought some fresh. poor tv signal, no fresh fruit. might as well go to bed. lights out. lights out.LIGHTS OUT!!! any movement set off the intruder alarm sensor ,flooding the room with bright blue light, and every time someone or something moved outside our door (which was glazed and a flimsy net curtain hanging) the room was lit like daylight. i am a light (ha ha ) sleeper and the dog disturbed every time as well. i'm bad enough grumpy but a Bordeaux , wath out. any way earlier in the evening we had an emergency call from the daughter and had to cut short our stay i notified the " wicked witch" and in the morning the fun really began.

Room Tip: Dont Bother.. room 2 is cramped and lights flash all night long.

Contacted the owner to explain due to adverse weather in Feb 2014 we would not be staying and have to cancel trip... She replied I demand full payment or taking it further which I am looking on previous reviews about her attitude which did not surprise me.. Have not even been to her place glad did not go due to reviewing the reviews due to her attitude. We spent a romantic wet weekend in Worcester due to the floods which is our home town Seems like not understanding to people's misfortunes due to floods illness or anything that Mother Nature throws at you. We booked a table in tenby on Saturday and understood why we could not make it but why couldn't she... Hope she takes it further as I am sure a court would be understanding in these adverse and bizarre weather we have had.. Glad my credit card was maxed out...

Well where should I start? My partner and I booked for 2 nights in this place without reading the reviews first of all. Big mistake. Upon our arrival which was mid afternoon, we waited a good 5 minutes for the lady owner Marion to come to the door to check us in. Then she had no idea how long we were staying for.
As we were taken to our room, we were half way up the stairs laden with heavy bags when we were told off for having our shoes on in the house in the cream carpet. I felt like some naughty school kid.
Upon entering the room, Marion gave us a tour of it, telling us not to get ANY water on the bathroom floor as it would go straight through the floor into the room below. The bathroom was very awkward if you're over a certain height as the beams are extremely low, both my partner and I are over 5ft 10 and I lost count at the total number of times that we banged our head in there.
We had to tune in the tv which wasn't too much of a problem, however, the signal did suffer with interference quite a lot of the time. That night we went to bed and noticed that the light in the stairs kept coming on. I can only presume that the dog may have been setting off the automatic sensor but it lit up the entire room.
The next day we had decided to visit some local attractions and wanted to go online to see what was around. My 3G signal wasn't that great and so we decided to ask Marion for the Wifi password. But we were both too scared to ask her as we had read the review on here about her advising a guest not to access pornography on it and so we struggled with my slow 3G connection. Can you believe it we were both too scared to ask her for anything!!
She had a very patronising manner about her, even shouting at the cleaner in front of me when all the cleaner had tried to do was offer good customer service. I was appalled by this, it was extremely unprofessional of her.
We declined the breakfast as at a cost of £150 for 2 nights, an extra £11 per breakfast seemed rather steep.
On the positive side the room was ok. It was clean and tidy, the towels appeared to be freshly laundered. That's about it.
It is certainly more than a five minute walk into the town, you're talking more like 15 and that was at a good pace by 2 fit and healthy people.
We certainly won't be returning. I'm sure that there are cheaper places to stay which are far more pleasant, with far more friendly owners.

Warm greeting by the owner Marion Stone who is enthusiastic
The room, not one in the photo gallery, honestly described as a small double with shower en-suite is adjacent the 'laundry / utility room. The noise from the washing machine doing its cycle was not welcome after a long drive and the need to sleep.
The room itself was colourful but with a fusty dampness that was uncomfortable though there were no physical signs of mildew either in the room or in the en-suite.
The towels in the shower were well worn and not as fresh as I'd like, couldn't determine if they were off-white of faded peach.
The 'sky' tv signal was constantly failing so it was impossible to watch, not helped by the washing machine next door in any case.
On giving up with the tv i tried to connect to the advertised Wi-Fi only to find the only available signal was next to the door of the room, next to the hall, next to the utility. Hardly convenient (see picture)
Anf finally when the exhaustion took over and I turned out the lights the burglar alarm sensor lit up the room, flashing at every movement in the room, even to the point of waking me when I turned over in the night. I'm not normally a "light" sleeper, but on this occasion !!!
Breakfast was prompt and the cooked Welsh was ample, though cheap sausages spoiled the meal. At least the resident dog had those.
I'll not be back.
I'm unsure if this is a typical Tenby standard as it's my first time in Pembrokeshire.
