“Wonderful meal and fabulous location!”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

We attended a wedding reception at The Giltar Hotel; incidentally, our daughter chose this venue for her own wedding reception 5 years previously. The staff were all very friendly and efficient, the atmosphere homely and welcoming and the food was fabulous. I’d highly recommend this venue. We’ll definitely be back for another meal!

We arrived in Tenby late afternoon as the weather was worsening, cold rain and wind growing quickly, so we were not able to fully enjoy Tenby and the location of the hotel. We were very fortunate to find a place to park directly across the street from the hotel. Our room was lovely, overlooking the sea. It was recently redecorated and I was impressed to see they used decorating accessories in the rooms from a local Welsh woolen mill. The "king size" bed was actually two beds put together, which isn't objectionable except that the mattresses were mismatched in size, resulting in an uneven surface. Also, we had to pay for wi-fi, which worked only when we were in our room. It would have been nice if the staff had been up front about the cost and limitations when we checked in. The wind rattled the windows all night which I expect in older seaside hotels, so it didn't bother me. It did bother my husband and kept him from getting a sound night's sleep. Also, it seems like a popular destination for large groups of bus touring seniors. The elevator is small and slow, so we frequently used the stairway.

Room Tip: Request a recently renovated room

Basil Fawlty on the loose in the car park proprietiess welcoming and helpfull.!
The room was very old fashioned and needs updating sharpish!
Very clean and very good breakfast.
Could do with a bigger car park as had to pay up the road at the private one further so was not very happy about that but only paid for 3 hours as was way to expensive and the free bays in front of the hotel was full. The noisy old plumbing kept us awake most of the night.....
The breakfast was amazing!

Room Tip: Go for the sea view.

As I am taking a party of 40 to play bowls in August I try and arrange a recce trip just to finalise things at the hotel we will be staying in. Unfortunately this 2 night trip coincided with gakes this time. Fortunately the hotel was very welcoming. Although the room needed a little TLC is very very obvious the management are carrying out an extensive refurbishment campaign. The public rooms are excellent. Our room had wonderful views, at least when the rain lifted. Breakfast was excellent with very friendly service. We clashed with an 80th and civil partnership so ate ouit on the occassion but will update after next trip. Finally the manager Malcolm was very helpful in sorting out the final details of our tour stay.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a sea view it's really worth it.
