“glad to be back.”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

I went back to the gumfreston hotel along with my friends from Holland. you can always be sure of a warm welcome, Helen could not do enough for us, and made our stay a happy one. situated in culver park it is handy for everything. the car park is just round the corner and has plenty of room. if you want the beach or the town center you can walk you don't have to take you car. I hear that st catherines island is open to the puplic, and worth a visit. please give the hotel a try when in tenby I am sure you wont be disappointed.

Room Tip: the hotel is quiet anyway but I like room 1

Booked this at short notice for my husband's birthday over the August Bank Holiday weekend.
Greeted by the helpful landlady on arrival who even found us a parking space on the road for the entire weekend.
Small but cosy room, with nice shower and clean fluffy towels.
Breakfast freshly cooked and plentiful.
Only wish we could have stayed another night but it was fully booked which shows its popularity.
Thanks for a great stay, have already recommended to a friend and hope to stay with you again.

Stayed here for 3 nights on my first trip to Tenby and generally pretty happy with the accomodation.

The landlady couldn't be nicer and or more helpful, the breakfasts are good and filling.

Room 2 overlooks the street but very quiet as B&B is in a quiet part of town, although only 2 mins walk away from the Beach and walled centre.

About 1 min walk away is a large Car Park which is reasonably priced.

Decor in Roon is a bit dated, but generally ok and clean, difficult (almost impossibe) to fill kettle as sink in bathroom is very small.

Overall, if you stay here you won't be too unhappy.

Room Tip: Room 2 is quiet erven though it faces the Street

Although the bedroom and bathrrom were not very big it was made up for the big heart of the owner. Nothing was too much trouble and she even gave my daughter in law and grandson a free breakfast when they came to meet us. Very clean and in a convenient spot. Would visit again. The breakfast was excellent.

Upon arrival we were shown straight to the room which was good and we were shown instantly how to work the shower which saved us time as we didn’t have to try and figure it out ourselves. We were given our key and we could come back and forth from the hotel whenever we chose to.
The beds were comfortable and were changed. There was a zip down the middle so if we wanted to make the twin beds a whole bed we had that option. There were decent sized mirrors around the room so you had the full length one and ones on the dressing table and in the bathroom that were of the appropriate size. The shower had hot water on which you could choose your preferred temperature.
However, the bathroom in general is just too small. There is a shelf right above the sink which needs to either be moved over, up or removed as if you’re brushing your teeth or washing your face, you’re more than likely to smash your head off of it. I think that the bathroom needs a lock as everyone appreciates their privacy when they are using the bathroom.
Also, the room gets really hot at night so there either needs to be air conditioning or at least a decent sized fan in there. The windows are stiff too open and close, I think they need to be windows where you push them open outwards not up and down as that is quite old fashioned. A kettle is provided with tea and coffee but in order to fill up the kettle we had to use water from the shower as due to the irritating shelf right above the sink we couldn’t fit the kettle underneath the tap. The maid also walked into our room without our permission which also links to privacy, so either she needs to knock louder or wait until we require her assistance.
The food for breakfast was decent, no real complaints. The staff were friendly and always asked for your requirements but sometimes they were not fulfilled. For me, the breakfast was too early and didn’t last for long. If people are on holiday they might not want to be ready for half 8 as they maybe have to get up that early for work so I think 8:30 – 9:30 is a long enough period on which people can come down and eat when they want to.
Overall I would give this hotel a 2 ½ out of 5 and I don’t think I would recommend this to people who are looking for a comfortable luxurious stay.

We were visiting a friend in Tenby and needed somewhere for the three of us to stay. The location of the Gumfreston was perfect as it was only a short stroll to town. We had a family room which had two singles and bunk beds. It wasn't a big room but as we only needed a place to rest our heads at the end of the day it was fine for what we needed. The bathroom looked newly refurbished and the shower was hot and strong. The breakfast was fab (cured our Welsh hangovers!) and Helen the friendly landlady was accommodating to what we wanted and didn't want on our breakfast plate.

All in all a great stay and I'd recommend for a short stay in Tenby.

We were greeted on arrival by the owner Helen who had saved us a parking space right out side the hotel. Helen showed us to our room (no 2) and explained all about the facilities and provided recommendations of where to go in and around Tenby as well as where to eat. Hotel and rooms very clean and is situated in a quiet street that is very close to the beach and the town centre. The hotel and the area are very quiet at night. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. I would recommend eating in the Buccaneer. Helen couldn't have been more helpful - thank you for an excellent stay
