We have just stayed there for a few days. The location is great, being right on a cliff over south beach with a view to Caldey Island. The room was nicely furnished in an old-fashioned way. The bathroom was big. The hotel is very quiet. Being an older building it has nice thick walls between rooms, and there is little passing traffic at night. Breakfast was good, with a nice selection of cereals and fruit for a small hotel. Big plus- we were able to take our dog. Car parking IS an issue, though it is not the hotel's fault. We were there out of season- it must be grim in the summer. There is a public car park about 200m away and they say you can get a weekly rate if you like- probably a good idea, as if you pop out for a bit and then come back you otherwise have to buy a new day ticket!
Minus factor- and again, NOT the hotel's fault. Tenby is about the most anti-dog resort I have been to. The south beach is HUGE but you cannot take dogs on there from May- end Sept. Why? I guess the usual tired argument about hygiene, but when you see how the seagulls leave guano everywhere and how they empty out the trash bins onto the street every day, I think dogs are the least of their problems. Many pubs don't amit dogs either. One that does, and is very nice foor food, is the Hope and Anchor, near the harbour. Mykonos Greek Restaurant about 100m away, in the old town wall, was excellent. We ate there twice.
