“Great value for money, clean and friendly.”
Reviewed October 29, 2010

Contrary to other reviews I can see no problem with the quality of this hotel. It is clean,
efficiently run, with a first class breakfast. The swimming pool and spa is a welcome
bonus and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. What are people expecting for their
money if they can complain about this well priced, comfortable place to have a break.

Great location right on the esplanade, and a nice drinks terrace overlooking the beach. It has a nice pool and spa area. Private, fairly secure parking. That's the good points dealt with.

There is a general air of faded grandeur. The public rooms are large, stuffy and charmless. The only wheelchair accessible room is on the ground floor at the back, accessed down a staff corridor, with staff rooms above and windows opening onto the service yard. Shame, because the bathroom is very good.

Blankets on the beds, and they couldn't provide duvets when I asked. Hard to believe in supposedly one of the best hotels in Tenby.

Disappointing. We had booked two nights but only stayed one.

Excellent hotel with good service and very welcoming at reception. The room was a good size , very clean, and well decorated .The bathroom was excellent with a good quality power shower. The food at the breakfast buffet was top notch with a great selection.

The restaurant 'Carrington's' is a great find, we used it for both room service and for dining and found both its food and service were first class. The chef and the waitressess were friendly and chatty despite being very busy.

We go to West Wales a lot and stay at any number of hotels in the Tenby & Pembroke area and the Atlantic is one of the best we have stayed at, we shall definitely return.

I have been to the Atlantic Hotel each time I have visited Tenby and could not picture staying anywhere else if I wanted a bit of luxury. Ok so the decor is a bit dated and if you are the kind of people that want to laze around your room then this hotel is not for you. The rooms are frilly and tiny but above all super super clean. The welcome is relaxed but efficient and you instantly feel at home or at least I do.
Now the rooms at the Atlantic do not come cheap and some reviews on here seem to think that it is a little above itself when you consider the price of surrounding hotels with much bigger rooms and much more modern decor. However I happen to agree with the price. I cannot say a bad word about the place or the staff - you shouldn't judge the hotel by the rarely cheerful manager of the restaurant downstairs as it is not their responsibility! There is a decent sized pool for number of rooms that you can get and anytime I have been there I have not been met bny more that one or two other people in the pool with you. I always request a sea view room as it really is a view and a half and the breakfast - one my big deciders when it comes to a hotel - is absolutely delicious.

It probably helps that Tenby is a lovely place to visit and we have such lovely times each and everytime we visit but for me part of that is the Atlantic Hotel which allows me to know that there is friendly staff and nevr a problem and if there was I have confidence that it would be put right with not a lot of fuss! Don't expect the Hilton - just enjoy the pool, enjoy the cliff top gardens for an evening beverage, enjoy being practically on the beach and in the town in a lovely little hotel.

Paid 120 pounds per night for a room so cramped we had to edge around the bed sideways, looking out on the main road. Minimal storage space for bags or clothes. The bathroom was a shoebox. The "swimming pool" is tiny, dank, and dirty - more like a paddling pool. And the hotel breakfast has got to be one of the worst I've ever had - soggy eggs, limp toast, slight rancid odour hanging over the whole dining room. Ugh. Stay anywhere else but here.

Spent a few nights at the Atlantic Hotel. It was all ok but nothing special, . Stayed in Room 35, which is a smaller room, but a good the view of the beach and Caldy Island.

Good points were the view, friendly reception staff and the pool area looked nice.THere is a nice terrace opposite Not so good was the beakfast, plenty of choice but the buffet style cooked breakfast wasn't particularly tasty. We formed the impresion that the cooked food was fairly low quality - cooked well, but in the end quite bland.

Would recommend but with reservations.

At £120 a night we expected a little more quality.
