5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2010

arrived in the evening to a nice reception by a very friendly staffer. Breakfast was included in our price but we didnt wake up on time. the room we got, on the 2nd floor was MASSIVE and had an amazing four poster bed next to the most stunning views of the ocean/beach and part of the wall of the outer ward of the castle. it was an ok bed...the TUB was the key here, it was huge and it had jets!..i had a fantastic stay and would definately recommend it to anyone going to tenby..the location is perfect if you are wandering around town, its right on the water and min away from great food and shops, looking forward to spending more time in town again.

We went to Tenby for my son, Ben's birthday. We checked in at 2:00, which was a perfect time for me and my family. Peter was very friendly and checked us in instantly.

Overall we were very pleased with our hotel choice in Tenby - its quiet and has a relaxing feel about it. Checking in and checking out was very efficient and due to the amount of luggage we had (due to an 18 month old baby daughter) Peter was happy for us to leave our pram etc downstairs instead of always lugging it upstairs.
We had a very nice room, with a great view of the beach, which was large enough for our daughter to run around in when we were in the room. We had 2 issues with our room but these were dealt with immediately, which was a very positive experience.
Breakfast was excellent and the waiting on staff were very helpful and extremely friendly.
We had drinks from the bar, which were reasonably priced, and whilst the bar area is pleasant we were able to take drinks upstairs to our room and enjoy them there.

The location of the hotel is excellent a very short walk down to south beach, you can literally fall out of the hotel and down the steps, or turn the corner and you are within the walls of Tenby and its shops/restaurants/bars etc.

The only small issue with the hotel & Tenby is parking but we found a car park close by and if the weather is nice you really don't need the car as the beaches are so clean so park the car and forget about it. Infact all of Tenby is very clean and we often witnessed the roads/pavements being cleaned each morning.

I brought a group of 18 college students and faculty for a tour through England and Wales in March and we spent three days in Tenby. Of the hotels at which we stayed, the Esplanade was by far our favorite. The staff is excellent--always friendly, helpful and patient with our many questions about the area. The breakfast was top notch--delicious and more than most of us could eat. All the rooms were quite comfortable and clean, but the rooms with an ocean view are exceptionally nice. No two rooms appear to be the be same and that's one of the hotel's charms. The best characteristic of the hotel is its location---on a cliff overlooking the ocean with easy access to the white sandy beach directly beneath. We were there two nights when the moon was full and I remember standing a long while outside listening to the waves crash against the rocks at high tide beneath us--- the experience was mesmerizing, like something out of a novel. Be sure to eat at the Mikonos Greek Restaurant and the Lamb's Inn Pub, too. Friendly people with great food.

If you are looking for a place to stay cant go far wrong with this hotel...staff are hard working and oh so polite.The hotel is nicely placed close to the town but amazingly it is very quiet...you go out of the door turn right and you are by the sea front..turn left and you are nearly in the town center.The hotel offers a full english breakfast which is well presented and freshly cooked with various other cereals available If you are looking for a nice expensive a la carte menu try Carringtons resturant underneath the Atlantic hotel very very nice... (evening meal).Dont expect a hustle n bustle hotel this is a laid back n relaxing place to stay...(No frills but a great place to stay)

My sister and i have just returned from a three night stay at the Esplanade. I knew we were not going to be disappointed as the booking had been very efficiently dealt with by Peter, beforehand. We were escorted to our room which had amazing views and was very pleasantly decorated with lots of space in which to relax. The breakfasts were very sumptuous, very generous and piping hot! We were delighted with our choice of accommodation and will be hoping to return annually!
