we had the premier room, excellent view of caldy island and lovely spa bath in the room too. the shower wasn't very powerful but the room was clean and well presented with a four poster bed. good base for tenby to keep popping out and back again. lovely ppl and nice breakfast

Room Tip: the premier room view is a must

Plus- The staff were helpful and location

Negative- Double room too small, wi-fi is not always available, Not a four star in my opinion

If you are after the sea view, then the beach is very beautiful and its just outside the hotel

Room Tip: By looking through the pictures, may be the rooms with sea view are bigger and may be more comfortab...

Thank you for your review. I`m sorry that you can only rate us as average. Yes, the sea views are larger, usually aprroximately £5.00 per person more than the non seaviews. Although we also have our premier four poster rooms with spa baths and amazing panoramic sea views, or the family/ twin rooms with sitting area and balconies looking out to sea(slightly set back). If you decide to stay with us again, it`s always best to book direct, so that we can cater best to your needs, and also get the best rates, especially through the winter.
Kind Regards

We stopped in room 17 for one night. The room is for a family but there were only two of us and it was spacious with 2 beds, sofa and ensuite. We had a view of the town wall from one window and a sea view from the balcony window. Everything was clean and worked as it should. Breakfast was excellent with a choice of cereal and fruit, toast and then a choice of hot options cooked fresh. The sausgae and bacon were good quality and waiting staff were really friendly especially the older of the two. We would certainly book again.

We had a second floor room, facing the sea. The room was large, well decorated, clean and well stocked with tea and coffee. There was a beautiful four-poster bed, a writing desk/dressing table and two well-placed chairs in front of the windows, which were very comfortable. The view out over the sea was magnificent, at all times of day. We had a clear view of Caldey Island and the whole of the South Beach, which is stunning. After an evening spent dining at the marvellous 'Coach and Horses' , it was blissful to sink into the ergonomic bath and press the button for the spa jets to do their thing....Heaven. We will definitly visit this establishment again. Our gratitude to the staff for a fabulous job!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 23, a winner!

We've stayed here about six times now in various rooms and the luxurious apartment next door. NEVER had a problem. Rooms are cleanand spacious. Breathtaking sea views. Friendly and courteous owners and staff. Breakfasts are freshly cooked to order with a choice of fruit, cereals, juices, yoghurts etc. very accommodating with young children. We've stayed elsewhere around Tenby and, to us, this is the perfect location. Have already booked a week for 2014 and we are counting down the days!
Lots to do in Tenby and the surrounding area and we've never struggled to find things to occupy our son whatever the weather.
We've read the review about the pigeons - it could happen anywhere. An unfortunate incident! It's not happened any of the times we stayed there & my partner refuses to sleep unless the windows are wide open! The thing with these reviews is that if you're like me, you only leave reviews when you've had an extremely unpleasant or an extremely satisfying above average experience. We cannot recommend this B&B highly enough. Roll on 2014 :-)

Room Tip: Sea view is a must - you'll regret not upgrading!

Thank you Peter and Julia for an fantastic stay in undoubtedly the best Hotel in Tenby,
The location is perfect.i booked too late for sea view but I was very happy with my room.
I stayed in room number 21 which is a very comfortable size with shower room en-suite, tea making facilities, and a flat screen tv.
The view from the window was to the side of the hotel so it overlooked the ancient town wall and
a beautiful view of st. Catherine's island,
If your a foodie, like me then I promise you will not be disappointed, the breakfast is cooked to order and is outstanding, the service delightful,
The afternoon tea really is the icing on the cake(pardon the pun)
I think very very good value for money,
I have already made plans to go back,
Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Sea view if possible because the views are incredible
