Great views

Great spot for a hotel, fantastic views and so close to main town Now the bad bits, although it’s cheap dont expect it to be clean and tidy it needs major renovation but then they would have to increase the price

The receptionist and staff are lovely at the Royal Lion. Nothing is too much trouble and you get a lovely welcome every time you come in. We were even provided with Ice bucket and glasses for our room. Really lovely touch. The property is dated but the price is great for such a lovely location. Beds are really comfy and a great breakfast too. Thank you

Fawlty towers of Tenby.

Apart from the amazing view we had that was it! Nothing else about the hotel is positive. It’s dirty,smelly and downtrodden. The lift was broken, the decor was done in 1932. The paint was peeling off the ceiling and walls and landing on my partner. The floors are uneven and creek. The rooms themselves are stifling hot and uncomfortable. They are dirty and smelly and everything that can be wrong is wrong. The bed is so uncomfortable we had very little sleep, when we got up in the morning our backs were in agony. There is no mention of parking, you have to use the pay and display, the closest one is £8 for 24 hours so take that into consideration. This sounds like I’m exaggerating but please trust me I am not.
