“national coach holidays break -Tenby”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

The journey from Manchester is long (about 6 hours, plus 1hr. 45 mins, breaks) but Tenby is worth it.
The Albany is ideally located - across the road from the North beach and a few minutes walk from all the pubs and shops. The hotel needs refurbishment but there was a good selection of really well cooked food in the evenings. Breakfast was fine, although perhaps a few extra items such as mushrooms, black pud and also porridge, in addition to the cold cereals, would have made it even better. All the staff were very helpful . There wasn't a great deal of storage space in the bedrooms but they were very warm and clean and there are tea and coffee making facilities.
Tenby has wonderful clean beaches with caves, castle ruins and a small island with a fort on it, just off the North beach. The paths and steps to the beach, though, are very steep so wouldn't be great for people with mobility problems.
National Coach Holidays included excursions to Pendine and Laugharne which have associations with Dylan Thomas and St. David's - Britain's smallest cathedral city. We also went to Carmarthen (not to be confused with Carnarvon}. The cathedral was great but there's nothing there apart from it. Carmarthen is just a small, slightly run down place with shops and I wouldn't bother visiting it again.
So, overall, it was a really enjoyable, good value holiday. Tenby is a picture postcard seaside town surrounded by beautiful countryside. I would definitely visit Tenby again but wouldn't bother going on excursions again as there's not much in the surrounding area. If I was there on a half board basis , I might return to the Albany, otherwise I might consider one of the many, many other hotels/B&B's.

My wife and I stayed at The Albany Hotel from 31st March until 4th April 2014 and can honestly say it was one of the best short break holidays we have had. Richard, his family and staff could not do enough to make the stay for everyone most enjoyable, nothing was a problem and everyone was greeted each day with a smile and a chat,as if we were family. This hotel is best suited for middle aged people and up over, the rooms whilst some may need a little makeover were clean and adequate, the food varied was good and wholesome, the entertainment fine. All in all it was a super holiday, thank you Richard and family for making it so, keep the good work up, we will certainly be returning to this delightful hotel. Hope the London Marthon did not exhauste you and Morgan. Best wishes Malcolm & Christine Pears.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 7 on the First floor, this room overlooked the side road and entrance to the hotel...

I went with National Holidays for a 5 day holiday to Tenby and stayed at The Albany.This hotel felt like Home from Home. Richard and his Family and Staff made you feel so welcome. The cases were taken to your room, so no lifting up the stairs. The food was excellent plentiful with a nice choise. A lovely cosy lounge area and bar, with entertainment , and a nice patio outside .The hotel is 5minutes from North beach and 10minutes from the center of the town., I had a wonderful stay and would definately come back again. Thank you, and good luck running the London Marathon.Kind regards Pat.

Room Tip: 2nd floor quiet

Stayed 4 night break with National Holidays. The Albany Hotel is conveniently situated a couple minutes from the North Beach & 5 mins from town centre. Richard & Lisa were excellent hosts & their staff were efficient/friendly. The public rooms were comfortable, clean & functional. The food was very good for 2* hotel. The bedrooms were tired (as prev guests have stated) but were clean & comfortable (tho our shower looked a bit scary at first was easy to use). The entertainment (provided by Richard) was relaxed good fun. We would definitely stay here again & would not hesitate to recommend the Albany Hotel with Richard & Lisa as mine hosts. Good Luck with the London Marathon Richard.

Had a great one night stay here. The rooms were cosy and warm, clean and tidy and the hotel is at a great location in the town. The hotel is very near to the seaside and local pubs; this hotel is definitely recommended!

came for a five day break with National Travel and could not have had a better holiday at such good value for money. the coach driver was helpful and cheery, researching interesting facts about the various trips. The staff at the hotel were so helpful ,managing to find me vegetarian sausages within 5 minutes of requesting them! Food excellent , always something suitable for all tastes.Room (2) large with huge bed and sofa,lovely dining room and bar area. Beer prices were excellent apparently but I did think the house wine a little overpriced at£12 a bottle.Will certainly return and would recommend, This part of Wales is gorgeous.
