“nice quiet corner”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

From the moment we booked to the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we found Maria & Nigel very attentive and excellent, friendly hosts.
Nigel's breakfast was extremely tasty and lasted us well into the afternoons.
Both Maria & Nigel's local knowledge enabled us to spend many happy hours visiting beautiful places of interest.
A B&B and area well worth a visit, and after each day out it was nice to return to our lovely, clean, comfortable room.

I can only reiterate the positive comments others have made for the superb quality and service Maria and Nigel provide!

My wife, 8 year old son and I stayed for Saturday and Sunday night over the recent bank holiday and I was particularly pleased with the cleanliness of the rooms and also the very friendly and honest nature by which Maria and Nigel welcome you into their guest house.

We were situated in the rear of the property, opposite a touring caravan park which was pleasingly quiet at nights (well behaved families only, it seemed) and agree with others that it offers an excellent base between Tenby (less than 10 minutes drive) and Saundersfoot (less than 5) and is in a very convenient location immediately off the main road into Tenby, which however - similar to another review - doesn't mean it was at all noisy at night, which was great also.

Breakfast was excellent also!

We shall be staying there again and have in fact booked another break later this year :)

Not a lot I can say really other than this, in my experience, is one of the *few* places I'd stay again without a shadow of a doubt.

Well done for superb customer service and excellent value :)

Room Tip: The rooms at the rear of the property, although facing a touring caravan park, are quiet. The locati...

Booked to stay at the Pen Mar a few days before bank holiday after searching for b&b's in Tenby that were way overpriced.Nigel greeted me at the front door and Maria showed me around the ground floor and gave me plenty of info about the surrounding pubs and path into Tenby and then took me to our room at the front of the guest house.Everwhere was really clean and bright and looked fairly newly decorated.Breakfast was plentiful with Nigel cooking a lovely full breakfast and Maria serving and chatting really enjoyable. Amples parking at the guest house and well placed on the main bus route and easy walk into Tenby meant we didn't have the stress taking the car into town centre which was a bonus.Would recommend the Pen Mar and would definately stay again.Thanks Maria & Nigel.

If you are visiting Tenby look no further than this little guest house. Maria and Nigel are absolutely fab and the two dogs they have are so friendly. The room was lovely and exceptionally clean, with the breakfast to die for. Nothing was too much trouble and all you have to do is ask. This is a guest house we would definitely stay in again when down Tenby way.

Thank you Maria and Nigel and look forward to seeing you again in the future.

This B&B is one of the best we have stayed in. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay there again if we are in the area. The cooked breakfast was more than sufficient, and we did not need much more for the rest of the day.

We stayed for one night and the Pen Mar and wished we had stayed more. An excellent location between Saundersfoot and Tenby (within walking distance of both), Maria and Nigel make you feel at home and so well looked after. The rooms are spotless, the breakfast lovely and it seems that nothing was too much trouble for them, which made the stay extra special. We will definitely be returning. Thank you both.

Room Tip: Visit the Mulberry in Saundersfoot for a lovely meal for two.

This review is well overdue, but my family of four had such a pleasant mini break here I just had to finally take the time to write about it.
The guest house is lovely and clean, our family room comfortably slept four, it was spacious, very clean and the beds were comfy. The owners Mr & Mrs Smith were so friendly and welcoming and they serve a cracking full English breakfast just to your liking!
The location is very good, it is just a short drive to the centre of Tenby where we were advised by the owners you are best to park on the multi-storey car park..where you can stay all day for just a couple of pounds. There are plenty of tourist shops and some nice restaurants..the portion sizes were huge! Great value for money!. The beaches are great and are close by, there is a beach at the back of the guest house but after visiting it just the once, we would advise if you have a pushchair not to bother as its a bumpy trek through a small wood.
To sum up my family had a wonderful stay at Pen Mar, the owners work very hard to ensure your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. They even posted a small item of clothing to us that we'd left in the room! We loved our break to Tenby, and should we go again we'd definitely stay at Pen Mar Guest House.
