The rooms with a sea view have exactly that, a great view of the sea. Lets start with the good, and there is plenty for the team at the Fourcroft to be proud of, equally there is plenty of room for improvement in some areas.
The room was clean with new bedroom furnture, but it was of a modest size. Plenty of tea and coffee on the brewing tray :-)) which makes apleasant change. The bathroom was of a good size and modern with plenty of hot water available 24/7. The breakfast which was included in the price was very good. However, the evening meal on the Wednesday was a different affair. Some extra customer care training would not go amiss for the waiting staff, not many smiles among them and when it came to being offered a menu we were provided with one for the two of us, just across the way was a stack of menus and it would have been nice to have been given one each rather than having to ask. The fish I ate, was good but the potatoes were not cooked properly and my betters half's scampi was less than great. Breakfast rates at a 7/10, but the chef's efforts in the evening only deserve a 4/10.
The Fourcroft has an outside swimming pool and indoor jacuzzi, however you would use these at your peril as they were looking rather grotty to say the least. Nothing a good clean and some regular maintenance wouldn't cure - on this occassion I didn't fancy take a dip with all the wee beasties that were visible never mind those that were not!!
The location of the hotel is perfect being just a short walk to the town centre and is also a stone's throw from the beach and cannot be faulted in this respect.
The position for parking is a lot more precarious. If you can secure one of the few parking spaces at the rear of the hotel, do so as parking is restricted at the front of the hotel and surrounding area. It must be borne in mind though that this hotel dates back to the Georgian period and there were not a lot of cars about in those days, so they make the best of the situation they find themselves in.
At £130 per night for the room with a sea view, I was hoping for more. Overall the Fourcroft was good value for money when compared to the competition in Tenby, especially if you take up their four nights for the price of three offer as we did. Without that discount it would not represent it would slide down the value for money stakes.
