Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed for 5 nights over Christmas. I have no problems with the friendly hard working staff , cleanliness and location of the hotel. There were two sittings for meals at this hotel. First sitting, which was us at 8am and 5.45pm . the second sitting was 9am and 7pm . I was disappointed with the meals. Very basic on the whole. Portion size was small. Christmas day dinner was appalling. Choice of starters Melon, pate and soup, The turkey main meal was 1 slice of turkey, half size pigs in blanket ( which was an inch in size) two roasties, 1 ball of stuffing and a small portion of veg.Gravy. The sweets were ok. A buffet tea in the reception and entertaining area, which consisted of cheese sandwiches, tuna , cant remember the third. veg spring rolls, cheese in breadcrumbs, coleslaw and some pasta dish. For sweet, chocolate swiss roll and a small amount left over trifle from lunch . Boxing day lunch was fish and chips or chicken and leek pie and chips. . All the staff were friendly and couldnt do enough for you but its christmas a special time of year. Alpha, would never, ever go with them again. Sorry Ian.

On arrival was met by the hotel manager Jan and assistant manager Steve ,firstly Jan wished me a happy anniversary,then as I was checking in he said “Steve will show you to your room “ Steven the. “ follow me, we have a upgraded your room because it’s your anniversary! We walked along the corridors and he said open the door with your key which was a key card. As I open the door into the most beautiful room, I had stayed in at Alfa Hotel. it was huge to lovely single bed as as I had requested twin beds as my husband had been suffering with very bad sciatica there was a fridge in the room with wine and soft drinks and water which were complimentary of the hotel due to celebrating our anniversary at a huge window. Also the bathroom was immaculately presented with the walk-in shower and a huge bath, it was impeccable I said to Steve how grateful I was as my husband had been so poorly. The last few weeks this is wonderful surprise and I could not thank him enough even went and found my husband who loitering in the foyer, On Christmas morning, my husband is experiencing agonising pain in his leg and he decided to stay in bed until his painkillers had worked. I went down to the reception and spoke to Jayne the manager and he said I will take your husband up a full breakfast on a tray. Would that be nice and I said he probably wouldn’t eat it but I will take him up some toast when I’ve had my breakfast and he said that’s fine. Whatever you want we will do. After my breakfast, Jayne brought over a try of toast, butter and jam and orange juice , I cannot appraise this hotel, the staff, the management enough for the kindness I showed me and my husband we had one of the best Christmas days we had ever had, They constantly checked to see if he was okay. If there’s anything they could do to make him feel more comfortable they could not have done more. Thank you Jayne, Steve and staff, this is our second trip to this hotel for Christmas last year was very good. This year was outstanding excellent can’t say enough about how great it was., the room we stayed in was a newly refurbished superior room which I would recommend to anyone staying there. Seaview was beautiful.

My wife and I and adult son have just had a tinsel and Turkey 4 night stay with a coach tour(Gee Vee) and could not fault it at all, our double and my sons single both with sea views had comfortable beds and plenty of hot water and were kept well maintained during our stay. On arrival we were greeted by management and had an easy check in. The food was excellent with a good menu for Dinner and Breakfast, no complaints there at all, served by efficient and friendly staff especially Claire? who had a beautiful GENUINE smile when serving you. The Hotel staff made it Christmas with food, Santa and all the Christmas trimmings etc. There was Bingo every night followed by entertainment which was a singer and were all quite good. Me being a Yorkshireman thought the beer was a bit expensive but it was Hotel price and no one forced me to drink it, and served by a friendly Alex. The Hotel is in an excellent location on the Sea front and only approx. 400 yds walk to centre. Only down side was that previous contributors have stated is that the Lift is small and the Rooms are a bit awkward to find until you get used to it. We are looking forward to staying there again in the not too distant future.

Just home from a seven day Alfa holiday at this hotel, we enjoyed it , lift small only fits two people but we were on first floor so used stairs, took us a couple of days to get used to the way to our rooms corridors are like a rabbit warren. Our two single rooms were nice always clean and the shower was fantastic. Management and staff were good and helpful, special mention to Alex on the bar always cheerful and works hard. Entertainment and bingo every night, if you want it. Food good plenty of choice, but until Wednesday i thought the portions stingy. We were on the first sitting and i just wondered if they were seeing how far the food would go. Its a nice hotel in a lovely area but Tenby is hilly.

We stayed here with Alfa. The room was up to the standards you'd expect from their Leisureplex brand - a clean & tidy bedroom and bathroom. The only lift however, was rather small, and randomly came up with an overloading warning. The hotel layout is a bit unusual, with room numbers not always reflecting their floor, and the reception desk is in the same area as the stage. Breakfast was the best meal of the day, with plenty of choice, although the toast was often underdone and barely warm. Glad to see that their dinner menu now gives you an extra choice of a jacket potato with a filling. The staff were very helpful & friendly (a shout out to Alex the barman). There was bingo nearly every night, as well as the usual singing to backing tracks, with some comedic ad-libbing making it more enjoyable. The hotel is well placed with a view down the cliffs to the beach, and the town centre only a short walk away.

I have return from a five day Alfa travel break and what can I say well the hotel is in a fantastic location and only five minutes walk to town. The hotel. Manager Yan and his staff go out of their way to look after guest. Good food choice in the dinning room service is over two sittings. The hotel entertainment is good with visiting artist including bingo and signing. Most of all well worth visiting and I will be returning.

Had a five day holiday at this hotel with Alfa coaches I could not praise the hotel enough. The staff were ALL helpful, friendly and nothing was to much trouble, this was from the manager to the restaurant staff. The waiters were all friendly and helpful especially the waitress I had (I think her name was Petra). I have a lactose intolerance but the waitress and chef ensured everything was suitable for me. The rooms were well looked after and serviced each day. The hotel was clean and well cared for. There was entertainment each evening and a bar. The location of the hotel across the road from the beach was great. The food although standard was cooked and served well and always hot.

I travelled to Cliffe Norton Hotel in Tenby on 3 September via Alfa Travel. I stayed in room 36 with a fabulous sea view, amazing. The hotel was clean and room was tidy. The food was great. Ample portion sizes, good presentation and the menu selection was varied as in there was always something that took my fancy. The waiter service was very swift and efficient (thanks Matthew 😊). Evening entertainment was decent with an array of vocalists and some comedy in the mix (the jokes were tasteful and that's what I like 👍) To the staff at the Cliffe Norton Hotel, you all deserve gold medals as you are so efficient and friendly. Nothing was a bother. You are all an asset to the company and should be very proud of yourselves. Thank you Jan and Brian for sorting my room key issue out so quickly. To Matthew for being an absolute star in the restaurant (so friendly and so efficient). To Jessica for sorting out the coffee machine and milk supplies for me and the other guests and generally working so hard with a smile 😉👍. To Alex the bar tender for being efficient with the drinks and serving with a laugh and a smile and to everyone else who works at the Cliffe Norton Hotel. You all made my holiday great and I cannot thank you all enough for that. You're the greatest ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ The Cliffe Norton Hotel is also in an excellent location and is just a stone's throw away from the bay/coast and shops, cafés and restaurants. Tenby is beautiful, especially in the Sun 🌞
