I have stayed in places around half of the price of the Pen Mar which have been as good, but you won't go too wrong with this place. Perhaps it was just the high season, but it seemed a bit dear to me for a b and b.
The only real issue is the fact it's right on the main road, and if it's hot (July 2013) and you need the windows open, then it can be loud. At cooler times of the year this is not going to be an issue.
In terms of location we found it worked out very well in the end. There is good parking provision for those driving from far away, and the walk into Tenby town (and another small local beach) is very pleasant indeed, and just what is needed after a decent breakfast. The cab home will only be about £5 or £6 although at about 60mph most of the way in 30/ 40mph zones in the manner of most small town cab services.
The breakfast itself was good overall, although two comments here: 1) why are the tables numbered according to the rooms? Sometimes you just want to choose your own table; 2) please just get some proper sausages - squishy bangers which can't even stand a fork going in to them are not good enough, especially when the price is not cheap overall.
The owners are friendly - no doubt, and I get the feeling they would help you out in any way they could, just as you would hope.
The thing that really stands out about the place is the cleanliness, which can't be faulted.
The Pen Mar is suitable for families and couples, and I would recommend overall on the basis that staying in Tenby itself is even more expensive in peak season.
