Only went in for a few drinks ended up staying longer than anticipated, and the bar staff were lovely and friendly! Interior was welcoming and homely, but the outside doesn't do the inside justice, would definitely recommend them spending some money on the outside for refurbishment!

Awful the place is in need of a major makeover. We booked on booking.com and was shocked with the room. The view is lovely but the curtains were more like rags with rips and dirty , there was a big gap under the door you were able to put your foot underneath and still space, from outside the room you...

Hotel is in need of refurbishment. Looks very shabby, dirty windows. Room was ok but furniture needs updating. Could be really lovely with more attention and money spending on hotel. Breakfast was very good in a lovely traditional room but again could do with updating. Lovely location by North Beach.

For anyone that is thinking of staying in Tenby please don't get put off by the reviews. Myself and 9 others stayed here this weekend after dreading it by reading the reviews. However, it is not at all dirty and by far cold! Staff are lovely and the location is perfect with the best view.

We stayed the night along with 3 other couples, night away to watch the rugby. The result was most definitely disappointing, but even this didn’t compare to how disappointed we were with the hotel!!!!! (As a Welsh woman that is a Big statement to make at this time). We arrived to a mediocre welcome, where they requested full payment before...

Awesome view but that's as far as it goes. If you are thinking of staying here, I would recommend staying in the family rooms as you can rob the blankets off the spare beds so you don't die of hyperthermia. Freezing.com. Not a great start when the mirror fell off the wall as we walked into the bathroom. I guess...
