“Perfect Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2010

Had a great time in Tenby, the hotel is clean and very friendly, the service was great, the owner and her staff were excellent. It's perfectly situated near the center of town, and makes a great base for walking / cycling.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2010

This hotel is lovely. Very reasonably priced. We have stayed there 4 times over the last 2 years and always have a nice time. The owner is very helpful and accomedating, provding good old fashioned service with a personal touch. It's basic but spotlessly clean. Ask for room 1 or 2 which have lovely sea views. Excellent value for money.

We have just spent two excellent weeks at Castle View. We too were somewhat sceptical after reading previous negative comments. We had a wonderful time. Staff were friendly but not 'in your face'. Ready to help whenever possible. Anyone who knows Tenby realises the great difficulties with parking. There is on site parking (limited). The token scheme worked extremely well for us. We were able to keep the tokens for the duration of our holiday which meant coming and going was easy. Short term holiday makers may feel it a nuisance, but compare it to having to drive around the town - when you can! No comparison. If you can afford a sea-view room then it is well worth the extra.
As for breakfast, did previous reviewers ask for a fried egg? I did, and had one every day. Breakfast could be any combination of what was on the menu. We would not hesitate in returning to the hotel again.

We booked this hotel before reading the comments made on the website and were a little dubious about staying there. However, we were pleasantly surprised. The accomodation was perfectly adequate size wise, and was clean and tidy. All the staff we dealt with when checking in and at breakfast etc. were all very helpful, polite and attentive.

The upstairs guest lounge was a lovely spot to sit for a drink, overlooking the bay.

I have stayed at more impressive places than this, but would happily return for another visit, particularly as a couple.

My only criticism would be the limited choice of cooked breakfast. If you stayed for a longer period of time, the limited menu may become a bit 'samey' and breakfast is only served for an hour so there is not a great deal of flexibility there. However, I wouldn't let that put you off, especially if you have no desire to be up and out before 9.00am!

We took the four grandchildren in two large family rooms one with sea view. Had read previous bad review clearly this was a one off/blip. Full English was great with staff fussing around the children and baby. Bedrooms were good and very comfortable. First floor lounge was very comfortable and child friendly with best sea views in Tenby. The owner was constantly asking if she could help in any way. She also pointed out local events and activities, like the firework display, dancing competition, and male choir. We were provided with a space at the back of the hotel to park the car. We also got a discount for booking two family rooms and because we had four children.

Nothing more to say here, I have said it all above, IT IS ALL EXCELLENT, I am going again soon on my own, the Daughter & her husband are back in work, & the grandchildren are going back to school.

I don't mind the key system to park my car at the rear, at least there is a place to park within a locked car park, I fail to see how other Hotels manage to park cars,Tenby is a very very very congested place, so cogested you are not allowed to drive in the town in the summer months. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK "JUDY"

Firstly, I must say the owner was very helpful and a lovely lady but the hotel itself needs updating. Very tired and as with other reviews, does have a smell. More musty than anything. I couldn't stay here more than one night and it was quite nosy from back street noise. Breakfast was very poor and not enjoyable. Great location but needs a major refurbishment!
