The whole family booked rooms as our daughter's wedding reception was held at the Giltar. We weren't to be disappointed. The hotel has a commanding view over the sea and the grand old façade is bedecked in flowers and other hanging basket creations. It felt very welcoming! The reception was very efficient and friendly with help available to take our... More

Few people have the opportunity to marry in their 50's or in my case on my 60th birthday. We wanted our honeymoon night in mid July to be special and within easy driving distance.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Since the hotel was taken over ownership in 2008 we have gone through a refurbishment programme and now offer both Deluxe and Premier rooms individually designed to a high standard with unique features, most with sea views. Enjoy a relaxing drink or bite to eat in our Cwtch bar/lounge with views overlooking Caldey Island. Our restaurant is open to the public and for residents of the hotel throughout the year including Christmas Day. We're a short walk from the historic walled town of Tenby and a stone throw away from Tenby's South Beach with spectacular sea views overlooking Caldey Island. We have a small car park at the rear of the hotel with 14 parking spaces. ... more   less
