As the previous review mentioned this B & B now seems to be under new ownership - and consequentially there appears to be a lot of teething problems.
On the positive side the B & B is in a nice location in the village of Penally, a couple of miles outside Tenby, and the prices are reasonable.
Unfortunately there were a number negatives - such as arriving and finding that there was no soap in the room, and being told that they would not have any until the following day. Luckily I had some shower gel with me!
The website mentions Wi-Fi access - which didn't exist. Indeed the website has not been updated to reflect change of ownership.
More seriously the lack of adherance to fire regulations worried me. The room in which I was staying was the rear fire exit. As such a copy of the key to the room was hanging in the corridor outside, protected merely by a piece of glass - not very encouraging for a single female resident. The door could, however, be secured from the inside, not good for the other residents if there was a fire. The other exit from the room to the fire escape itself was secured by bolts which would not be visible in a fire - the other keys hanging in the corridor being out of date. Finally all the fire doors in the B & B with the sign "Keep Closed" were firmly wedged open.
Overall I would struggle to recommend this B & B.
