Reviewed September 28, 2011

Visited a friend who was staying at this hotel, we had Sunday lunch together . Have to say both the service and meal were great. Staff friendly and accommodating. The view from the restaurant ,over looking the beach,is beautiful. Parking is always a problem in Tenby especially around Imperial Hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your stay with us. It is pleasing to read that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us. I will pass your kind comments on to the staff. As you mentioned about the parking in Tenby, we do only have a small car park at the hotel, due to our location. However as I have mentioned to others there are other options available such as the Rectory Car Park and the Town Centre Multi Storey, both only a 5 minute walk away.

Kind Regards

Went on 3 night Shearings Self Drive break for the first time. The hotel was well placed for town centre, but there was no parking, something which was not shown on the website and it cost another £20. The room was a Superior room, which cost extra of course, and was quite nice and clean but the beds were so uncomfortable and we only stayed 2 nights instead of 3 because of this. Also we were at the back of the hotel and when you had the window open you could hear the extractor fan from the kitchen. The staff were very pleasant and the food was plain, good and plenty of it, but the service was a bit chaotic at times and the drinks in the bar were quite expensive. Overall it was a nice break and the restaurant and lounge had a lovely sea view, but feel they need to look at the mattresses in room 37 and ensure that the restaurant staff know exactly what job they should be doing.

Room Tip: Probably best to upgrade to Premier room as our Superior room, No. 37, did not have much of a view a...

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your stay with us. I am pleased to read that you were happy with most aspects of your stay. It is very disappointing to read that you checked out a day early due to finding the mattresses hard. The room you had is one of our new rooms with new beds and mattresses and we have had no other complaints about the beds. It’s good to hear you were happy with the food served in the restaurant we aim to cater for all tastes.

There are several car parking options nearby which range from free (if you can get a space) to £18.00 for a Monday to Friday pass at the Rectory car park. A reasonable compromise is the town centre multi storey which is £2.00 for 24 hours. All options are a 5 minute walk away.

Kind Regards

Just returned from a 3 day holiday with my parents, staying at the Imperial Hotel in Tenby. The hotel is set in the cliff overlooking the sea, beach and Caldey Island. We both had sea views which were just beautiful.
The rooms were lovely (premier and superior) and the staff were so friendly and helpful and the food was good too. It was all very welcoming and comfortable.
It is an easy stroll from the hotel to the town and there are such great walks in the area, coastal paths as well as town and beach walks.
I love that the hotel is 5 old houses converted, though that does mean that there are lots of passages and steps, a bit of a problem for my parents who find stairs tricky.
Also hotel has very limited parking, we parked in the rectory car park 5 minute walk away. OK for us but not easy for people who can't walk far.
Despite the stairs and parking, we had a lovely time and would come again.

Thank you for taking the time to post an honest review of your stay with us. I am glad you enjoyed our beautiful cliff top location; it does offer truly amazing views of the coastline and islands. Our proximity to the town centre and coastal paths is ideal for guests who can’t walk too far. We do only have a small car park due to our town centre location but the Rectory car park is only a five minute walk. We look forward to welcoming you back here in the future.

Was in Tenby last week end to perform first IM wales. The support from the hotel staff was the best you can get in such times. We had a room with sea view. The room was very big and the view truly breathtaking. Hotel is ideally located within the old walls, close to city center, just above the beach, 200m from IM field if you come for that.

Room Tip: sea view rooms are really "sea view", worth the money

I stayed at this hotel during the ironman Wales competition with my Parents and could not have been more pleased. The staff (Peter Rees in specific) was very very helpful, friendly and accommodating (made us breakfast at 4am). The restaurant was gorgeous with great service, but i wasn’t amazed by the food, but still a good values and awesome views!!!
