Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 28, 2012

the hotel is so old the floors are slopping the building is at risk of falling down if there was a fire no body would be safe there is a massive gap under the door they dont change the sheets they leave u without toilet paper you dont get a quilt they give a sheet and an old blanket in which i did not use they leave it days before they empty your bins .THE BREAKFAST is so bad the first morning i was crying with anger i asked one of the ladys that work there would you eat this the place is not cheap and for what you pay it is absolutely terrible i would not let any one stay in this hoval

Unique Quality: the only good thing about the hotel was the view of the bay when you could see it through the cob webs and bits of paint

Directions: right on the sea front of north beach tenby

The Royal Lion Hotel is a great place to stay. It is a fabulous vibrant yellow Victorian building situated on the Esplanade in Tenby, right opposite North Beach. The reception staff were friendly and very accomodating when I realised i had booked for the wrong night!! We were given a room at the front of the hotel on the first floor. The views over the beach and harbour were to die for. There was a little table and chairs in front of the window - I could have stayed there all day, gazing out to sea!!

The bedroom and bathroom were very clean although some may complain that some areas need modernising. I would say these touches gave the Hotel more character. There were some lovely communal areas, one as you walk through the door by reception complete with roaring fire and another on the first floor, complete with a little patio area.

The Stage door Bar is on the ground floor of the hotel. You can grab a bite to eat here off their bar menu.

We were given a lovely table for breakfast and were given a choice of Cereal, Yoghurt, Orange Juice, tea/coffee and a choice of cooked breakfast off the menu. We chose the full cooked breakfast which was ok but a little too greasy for my liking.

The Hotel offers free Car parking which is a huge bonus in Tenby especially during the summer period. The Car park is situated just round the corner, next to the Cinema on White Lion St.

All in all I had a great stay here & would love to stay here again. I would also recommend it to others.

Unique Quality: The Victorian Ceiling Rose in the upstairs communal area.

When we arrived to check in we found that our booking was for the night after and not tonight but they changed it over without any problems (good job it was quiet).
This Victorian Hotel has retained some great period features and all the comunial areas are light and welcoming.
The room was comfortable with a fantastic view over Tenby harbour through the original (and working) Sash windows with working wooden shutters. some of the decour like that in the Bathroom was a little dated but that does not really matter.

Just through the front doors before the reception there is a nice lounge with an open fire and there is a residents lounge on the first floor with some comfy chairs and a large old fashioned projection TV (that i could not actualy figure out how to switch it on) and doors leading out onto a sun terrace.
There is a bar called The Stage Door which is open to both residents and none residents as is their Restaurant called Celebrities, You might have guessed by these names that the hotel is opposite the Old Theatre and and The De Valence Pavilion

The staff were always very helpful and it was a great place to stay especialy with the lovely view, the breakfast was not to good though. Great choice of cereals to start but the cooked breakfast was overcooked and some of it tasted like it had been kept warm for hours. But that may just be because the hotel was quiet or just that the breakfast was not to our taste, it did not spoil my stay at the white Lion and if (and hopefully i will) visit Tenby again i would not hesitate to book there again.

Unique Quality: Great period features. Lovely views

Directions: Corner of Crackwell st and White Lion St, overlooking North Beach
