Lovely bed , fantastic view in room 14 I strongly recommend you stay in! Breakfast is also lovely - the mushrooms are a must have! Only thing I'd criticise it for is hiding the WIFI details in a drawer ! Maybe leave that out on the side for guests? But other than that amazing

Nice with A Brilliant bed and pleasant staff, the location was excellent , whilst the rooms where good that's all they where , they seemed a little jaded and in need of a refresh to be honest.. Better places for this kind of money in the local area

A very comfortable hotel if of an age which must require constant attention. Not withstanding that it was clean freshly decorated and excellent for our purposes (visiting relatives). The only possible downside was that the phone appeared not to work (we wouldn't have noticed if the proprietor hadn't pointed it out) and the kettle was to big to fill from...

Returning to Tenby after too many years away. Wanted to stay close to the headland between the two main beaches, the Esplanade was ideally placed. We made a mistake in the booking being out by one day, this was not a problem to the owner who dealt with the matter withhout any fuss. The hotel is a very old building...

Had an enjoyable long weekend here in late October and wasn't disappointed. We booked a room with a seaview which is one of the bonuses of this hotel and I would think makes it extremely popular. On a downside they don't have their own parking but 24 hour parking in the multi storey is only £3 so good value but...

The room had a four poster bed and sea views - excellent breakfast and friendly staff The hotel is located on the esplanade within easy walking distance of the town centre. Plenty of local restaurants and shops within the town walls The beach is sandy and at low tide you can walk around to the harbour

We visited the tea rooms twice in October half term and had very friendly service, lovely cake and great tasting coffee (the tea and hot chocolate were excellent too). Our well behaved dog was also made to feel very welcome. The décor is very tea room like, not at all like a café which was very nice. Newspapers to read,...
