Penally Abbey

There’s much that appeals at this ‘superb’ hotel, in a skilfully spruced-up late 18th-century Gothic house looking out to sea, say guests in 2016: ‘friendly, helpful’ staff; ‘excellent’ food; ‘lovely’ spots to lounge in; a good-natured atmosphere throughout. More

Good Hotel Guide Review

There’s much that appeals at this ‘superb’ hotel, in a skilfully spruced-up late 18th-century Gothic house looking out to sea, say guests in 2016: ‘friendly, helpful’ staff; ‘excellent’ food; ‘lovely’ spots to lounge in; a good-natured atmosphere throughout. New owners Lucas and Melanie Boissevain have refurbished with panache, restoring period features and heritage detail. The inviting sitting room (flowers, books, magazines, log fire) calls for tea and a biscuit; a pretty terrace has ‘great views’ of the sea. From snug accommodation in the eaves to a spacious, refined room overlooking the water, bedrooms update a classically elegant look with easy charm. Sundown calls for a sit-down: sip a Welsh whisky or a local craft beer in the cosy bar, then sup on a modern menu in tune with the seasons, perhaps including a springtime rack of lamb, crushed Pembrokeshire potatoes, spinach and carrot purée. Breakfast on fruit, pastries and Welsh specialities such as laver bread, then set out to explore the large, attractive grounds: among the wild flowers, find an ancient well and the ruins of a medieval abbey.
