    No onsite hotel parking, had to pay. No bar facilities but local shop nearby.

    More of a B & B than a hotel but truly lovely none the less. Excellent breakfast and excellent hostess. Lovely well sized bedroom with comfy beds. Excellent location right next to the beach and Tenby centre. Only downside was lack of hotel parking. Had to pay for parking on the large carpark nearby. Can park on the street for free but spaces are very difficult to find. Brilliant stay would go again :)

    Lovely owner/hostess - very thoughtful and friendly. Beautiful room, clean and cozy. Lots of yummy breakfast options. Super easy check in/out. Fab location. Excellent wifi. Truly exceeded my expectations, and I'll definitely look to stay here again if I get back to Tenby!

    The double bed was bumpy and dipped slightly in the middle.

    The location near the beach the old town and the sea. The room had a little sitting room which gave us extra space and the bathroom was spacious. Lovely and warm. Great breakfast every day.

    The room we had, no 5 was a little tired and dated. The mattress was quite soft and not at all comfortable.

    Marlborough House was an excellent location for walking into Tenby it takes just a couple of minutes. The breakfast choice was varied and delicious.

    The duvets and pillows seemed old and heavy. There was no catches on windows they were very dangerous for young children. It is not a hotel it is a guest house, which hasn't been updated. The shower room had a plastic concertina door from the 60's. Downstairs was one room with a numbers of dining tables with a faded large settee and a grand piano. Where would you go to relax. The place had a musty smell as if it needed a change of décor. We were very disappointed and left a day early.

    The breakfast was very good The staff was friendly.

    The place is very tired - our room felt like it needed redecorating and the bathroom was probably due a complete replacement. The bed was awful - we both came away with bad backs after 2 nights. We actually left a day early - partly because of the dreadful weather but mainly because we wanted to spend the night in our own bed.

    It's in a good location, one street back from the beach and a 10 minute walk along the esplanade from the town. Breakfast was very good - lots of choice, the food was good quality and the service was friendly.

    The décor of the room and bathroom was very old and tatty and needed a thoroughly good wipe and dusting throughout, the main bathroom light didn't work only the small shaving mirror light, it was very dark in there. There was plenty of hot drinks facilities available but didn't like the tea bag brand (it was awful).

    The bed was clean, comfortable but small. Nice shower, breakfast excellent with plenty of choice.

    Very friendly and helpful people. The breakfast could be varied from full English to any combination, cereal, fruit or just toast. Bowls of fruit and sweets put out to be used freely by guests.
