Best hotels and hostels in Pembrokeshire

  • Top ChoiceLodging in St Davids (Tyddewi)

    Tŵr y Felin

    Incorporating an odd circular tower that was once a windmill, this chic boutique hotel is St Davids' most upmarket option. The entire building is lathered with specially commissioned contemporary art, with dozens of pieces in the lounge-bar and restaurant (Blas) alone. The 21 bedrooms are all luxurious, but the most spectacular is the three-level circular suite in the tower itself. Blas (Welsh for 'taste'; mains £19 to £23) is highly regarded for its use of local fish and foraged ingredients.

    Grove

    A truly magical place to stay, this secluded country-house hotel is just south of Narberth, surrounded by manicured lawns, mature trees and wildflower meadows. The sumptuous rooms blend period character with contemporary style, while the Fernery, the renowned in-house restaurant, is Pembrokeshire's finest, serving modern Welsh dishes such as turbot with apple-and-ginger purée and langoustine sauce.

    Old School Hostel

    Set in a rambling old school building in Trefin, 2 miles east of Porthgain, this is one of the new breed of independent, brightly painted, personably run backpackers. The six rooms have en-suite showers but communal toilets, and there's one self-contained en-suite apartment (£50). A great collection of games and a good-quality self-service breakfast are included in the price.

    Fforest Camp

    On the edge of Teifi Marshes Nature Reserve, Fforest challenges the notion that camping means roughing it. Stay in large tents, tepees or geodesic domes and enjoy the country air. Simple, wholesome breakfasts are served at the lodge, and the owners run a second site further up the coast at Manorafon. There's a seven-night minimum stay during summer holidays.

    Manor Town House

    This graceful Georgian house has a lovely garden terrace where you can gaze over the harbour (from the other direction, the view is the Preseli Hills). The charming owners take great care over the guest spaces, with continual improvements being made to the six smart en-suite rooms. Bike hire, packed lunches and other extras are never too much trouble.

    Cliff House

    It's well worth lugging your bags up the short but steep road from the town centre to this wonderful little Victorian-era B&B. There are only five rooms, and the two on the top have glorious sea views. A guest lounge encourages fraternisation, and there's an extremely handy communal fridge, DVD library and book exchange.

    Trevayne Farm

    Based on a working 40-hectare permaculture farm, this large clifftop site has beautiful sea views and two separate fields so back-to-basics campers can avoid the looming motorhomes. Perfect, secluded Monkstone Beach feels like the farm's private water frontage, and it's just a mile south of central Saundersfoot via the coast path, or 2 miles by road.

    Penally Abbey

    Set on a hillside overlooking Carmarthen Bay, this country-house hotel is built on the site of an ancient abbey in the village of Penally, 2 miles southwest of Tenby along the A4139. The 11 bright and comfortable rooms are spread between the main house and the neighbouring coach house, and there's an impressive restaurant attached. Beyond a 12th-century chapel, little remains of the religious community that struck roots here when St Teilo was resident, in the 6th century.

    Max & Caroline's

    Why bother serving breakfast when you're situated directly above Narberth's best cafe? That's the philosophy at this excellent British-and-German-run guesthouse, and it means that its two handsomely furnished guest rooms can be rented a little more cheaply than you'd otherwise expect for the high standards on offer. Continental breakfast can be added for £5.

    St Brides Spa Hotel

    Pembrokeshire's premier spa hotel offers the chance to relax after a massage in a small hydrotherapy pool overlooking Saundersfoot's seafront from on high, before dining in the candlelit Cliff restaurant. The 34 bedrooms (and two apartments) are stylish and modern, in colours that evoke the seaside.

    Crug Glâs

    Set on a big beef and cereal farm that has existed here since at least the 1100s – there's a reference to it in the 12th-century Black Book of St David's – this opulent country house offers rooms decked out with rich fabrics, ornate beds, enormous bathrooms and elegant period grandeur. Five rooms are in the main house, two in converted farm buildings. There's also a top-notch restaurant. Crug Glâs is 3 miles south of Porthgain, off the A487.

    Llys Meddyg

    This converted doctor's residence takes contemporary big-city cool and plonks it firmly by the seaside. Bedrooms are large and bright and decked out in an unassuming but very stylish manner. Original artworks adorn the walls, locally woven blankets and cushions add a splash of colour, and the bathrooms are spacious. Plus there's an upmarket restaurant and snug bar downstairs.

    Fishguard Bay Resort

    Dramatically positioned on a clifftop overlooking Fishguard Bay, this large complex offers a wide range of accommodation, including tent sites, static caravans, self-contained cottages, luxury lodges and barrel-shaped 'glamping pods'. There's also a shop, a small playground, a games room, a laundry and a 'pamper pod' used for massage. It's located 2.5 miles east of Fishguard, signposted from the A487.

    Golden Lion

    This warm and cosy country inn has 13 bright, clutter-free rooms with simple but contemporary decor in restful colours. They vary in size from snug doubles to more spacious family rooms. In contrast to the modern bedrooms, there's a snug traditional bar with a log fire and low ceilings downstairs, serving real ales and good-quality meals.

  • Lodging in St Davids (Tyddewi)

    Waterings

    Offering more privacy than your typical B&B, the Waterings has only two rooms in the main house but a further five in an attached outbuilding opening onto the garden, all with unabashedly cheery nautical names like 'The Bosuns Room'. The garden rooms are large and suite-like, with a semi-separated sitting area and their own external entrances. Breakfasts are excellent.

    Woodbine

    This well-kept, forest-green Georgian town house presents a smart face to Pembroke's main drag. The three pretty guest rooms are tastefully furnished, with original fireplaces and contemporary wallpaper; two have en-suite bathrooms, while the family room has its bathroom out on the corridor. A Welsh slate floor from the 17th century graces the breakfast room.

    Pwll Deri YHA

    Perched amid emerald fields atop a 120m-high cliff overlooking the Irish Sea, this hostel has one of the finest locations in Britain. The views from the dining room would rival those from any top hotel (sunsets are particularly spectacular) and the private rooms all have their own bathrooms. The Strumble Shuttle (bus 404 from Newport to St Davids) stops here.

    YHA St Davids

    If you're an enthusiastic walker or you have your own transport, this former farmhouse tucked beneath Carn Llidi, 2 miles northwest of St Davids and near surfers' playground Whitesands Bay, is a wonderful option. The cowsheds now house snug dorms and twins, and an inviting communal kitchen. En-suite rooms sleep four people and there's bike storage available.

    Caerfai Bay Caravan & Tent Park

    A 15-minute walk south of St Davids, this large campground has good facilities and exceptional views across St Brides Bay. It's set at the edge of a dairy farm, not far from the coast path. Confusingly, there's another campground-farm called Caerfai Farm located close by; they're separate but related concerns (if one is full they'll put you onto the other).

    Canaston Oaks

    Set alongside a working farm 3 miles west of Narberth (near the intersection of the A40 and A4075), this mini-hotel based on a refurbished rural longhouse has 10 en-suite rooms, suites and apartments positioned around a Celtic-cross-shaped garden. The larger rooms have spa baths, and you can expect hearty breakfasts and charming Welsh hospitality in all.
