I feel I have to write and express my utter disappointment following our recent stay. I booked a night away for myself and my partner as we'd not seen a great deal of each other lately due to work commitments. I looked at your hotel and to be quite honest with you, it was the location that was the selling...

Staff on first hand were great. Very friendly and helpful. Rooms were excellently clean. Bedding and towells fresh. As could happen with any hotel, my wife and I were woken up by other guests being very noisy but the night porter dealt with it brilliantly. There were only two items that stand out. The lift didn't stop exactly at the...

This hotel is an embarrassment to Tenby. The reception is a clue of how bad it is- the staff couldn't care less! We had the top floor so had an amazing view of the beach. But- seriously this is the dirtiest hotel ever- it's a joke they have the cheek to charge people. The bathroom door had a massive gap...
