Hopefully you are reading this before you took the plunge to stay at The Royal Lion Hotel.
My Dad booked it last minute for Mum, Dad, my sister and I - there were two bedrooms available and the hotel included parking – that’s all my Dad looked in to. Mum and I looked on the website the day before we left and gave each other "the look" but deferred judgement until we got there.
When we arrived, from the outside it looked as grot bags as it did on the website, but it did have a great location (hence it getting a 1 star!). Mum jumped out of the car to check us in and as soon as she got back to the car to direct Dad to the car park - her face said it all and she had only see the reception.
The rooms were awful - in more than need of a spot of paint. We went in April 2012 and it was freezing. The only heater in the room was what my sister and I now call the sunbed light - to get heat you had to have the full on flood light on too - we had to switch it on at one point during the night and just laughed as we held our hands over our eyes to block out the BRIGHT light. I opted to sleep in my winter coat - the worst night’s sleep ever!
Mum and Dad had as many problems with their room - awful bed and cold!
At least my sister and I had a shower in our bathroom - although it was one of those ones that scolded you and then dribbled freezing water at you every 20 seconds, so neither of us had a decent wash. At least there weren't pubic hairs in our bath though (which the parents had the unfortunate dis-pleasure of)
Breakfast was mediocre. Not worth staying the night for though.
There are so many other quaint places to stay in Tenby - do yourself a favour, don't stay here
