“Fabulous rooms and view, we'll be back.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

My friend and I stayed at the Giltar late October. This hotel made us feel very welcome and is in an ideal location on the esplanade directly across from Tenby's beautiful south beach.

We stayed in the Caldey suite which was a lovely large room, relaxing decor and with the best views out of the huge bay window with three aspects across to Caldey Island and the Atlantic ocean. The room had plenty of storage space and also seating areas with both a table and chairs and a chaise longue.

The bathroom was lovely with separate bath and shower, complimentary local toiletries, and good lighting.

The breakfast was good, we tried the full Welsh and also the eggs Benedict. The restaurant staff updated us with a full weather forecast each day and advised us on when we needed to wrap up.

We look forward to returning next year and will definitely be requesting the same room.

I stayed here for one night with friends in one of the unfurbished rooms but it was spacious and with lovely sea views. The breakfast was plentiful and highly recommended! The staff were very helpful and friendly, allowing us to make us of another room as ours wasn't ready (as we arrived well before check in time!). Very reasonable price for a hotel in Tenby although I'm sure once it's completely refurbished it will be in a higher price bracket!

Just got back from a four night half-board stay with six friends (coach holiday with Alfa). Great hotel, polite staff, lovely food beautifully presented. I had a newly refurbished room (310) which was very modern, stylish and clean. The cellar bar and dance floor area was the best we have experienced on previous coach holidays. Entertainment each night was very good. We would all recommend the hotel, and area for a holiday. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here a few times & it has a great location for Tenby, plus an excellent breakfast.

would be a 5/5, but my last visit was a complaint as the hotel is being refurbished & the room we had was more like Fawlty Towers. I wouldn't minded, but they still charged us £86 a night for a room hasn't changed since 1980. I did ask for a reduced price, but they refussed & said it was pot luck in the busy season.

Would go back again & stay there as we go to Tenby/west wales at 3 times a year, however i would request an updated room.

Just got back from a one night stay at the Giltar hotel..
We paid a little extra for the premier room (newly refurbished).. It was a lovely room.. décor very stylish, modern and clean.. (number 205, with a see view). However was very cosy.. Don’t think I’d be fussed if was staying more than one night… Bathroom also stylish modern and clean, but again nice a snug..
Breakfast consisted.. 1 bacon, 1 egg, 1 sausage, 1 hashbrown, 1 mushroom, 1 tomato, pot of beans and toast.. Even though I was stuffed after it.. its always nice to see two of every thing.. That’s what I call a full English.. with a little black pudding..
Bar in the basement stayed open till 1.. we were having a late one so that didn’t bother us too much..
Would definitely recommend the Giltar hotel.. next time will request for bigger room and stay longer.

This is a lovely hotel in a great position with stunning sea views and only minutes from the town centre. The food is excellent and the staff and service very good and friendly. The communal areas have been done up very nicely but not all the rooms are up to standard yet. My single room had a very small shower and toilet area which needed some updating and it was difficult to get a hot showers at peak times.

Room Tip: The refurbished rooms looked the best
