Unaccountably for a mediaeval town with a Castle, Green and Mill Pond, Pembroke looks pretty run down, and that includes most of the hotels in the town. So it's really great to find Woodbine B&B. It's a pretty Georgian House on the Main Street with three rooms. They are very spacious with the usual features and some nice original features including the original shutters. The welcome was warm with tea on arrival and a good breakfast in the morning, and I had a good night's sleep. There is free broadband; the signal in the room was acceptable though it could have been better. It's very clean and well maintained.
Downsides? Nothing very significant. The shower cubicle in the bathroom was on the small side especially considering the size of the bathroom, and some net curtains in the front bedroom would have been nice as my bedroom looked out onto the main road. But for the price it's really good value and comfortable.
I like a good B&B - you always get better service than at a hotel, and much better value. And this is a very good one. Definitely recommended.
