“The best holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

My family and I have just come back from a weeks stay at the castle. We all had an amazing holiday, the staff are very welcoming and the atmosphere was lovely. The castle has a very talented chef and I would highly recommend trying there food

“Little Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

Loved it here, it is fantastic despite the day we visited being very wet. Stunning views of the beach from the top of the towers. Beautifully kept gardens and interesting rooms to explore. Tea room was a bonus and the staff were very friendly. Very photographic - perfect for weddings!

“Interesting for everyone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

We visited the castle before spending the rest of the day on the beach. The staff were very welcoming and the aroma from the tea rooms was amazing. It was very inexpensive and we enjoyed a couple of hours mooching around the towers and the grounds with the kids, then basked up the sun on the lawn.

“Need more information”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

It is rare to visit a castle and have no information to tell you about the history of the castle. The only way you were going to get this here was to buy a guide book - something you read at the time and then never again. The entrance fee was £5 per adult, for a small castle I found this quite a lot. Visiting Pembroke castle a few days later - for the same price - it made us think Manorbier could take a leaf out of their book and supply boards around the place explaining the history to the visitors. The steps into the towers were narrow and difficult, a few more hand rails/ropes would have made it a little easier.
