- Very Good
“Great location, plenty of room and well equipped”
We had a lovely stay at The Old Pilots House, it was in an ideal location - close to the town, beaches, restaurants, shops, pubs etc. There was plenty of room and the house was very well equipped. The property is not for the faint-hearted though as there are lots of stairs - it spans over four storeys and there are lovely sea views from the top two bedrooms. We needed a property that took lots of people and it certainly did the job, we will be returning in the summer next year.
“Great stay - health & safety/cleanliness an issue”
There's no denying how brilliant Tenby is, no matter who you're travelling with. Beaches are clean and safe, dogs are allowed on South Beach, and parts of Castle beach. Plenty of things to do including walking, boat trips (seal safari, sunset cruise as well as to Caldey Island) the nearby area hosts good attractions such as Saundersfoot, with it's beach, and Manorbier Castle + Beach (good for surfing). Area is good for theme parks etc - oakwood theme park/dinosaur park. etc. Tenby itself has good attractions The Ghost walk - interesting Horse & cart rides, tenby tours Pedestrianised town centre was good. Shopping was good (souveniers/gifts etc) Easy access to supermarkets, tesco express is right around the corner, sainsbury's is down the road and asda in pembroke do home deliveries. Property - good price £683 (inclusive of deposit) which, in comparison to other properties i'd seen, was remarkable (other properties going for £1400+) The price was shown through cleanliness and health and safety. The property was last rated in 2002 at 3 stars - standards appear to have slipped. Upon entry to the property, you were hit by a damp smell - we had to go around with air freshener, but still, the smell remained. The property had an old boiler too, which was a worry. This, coupled with the downstairs windows being nailed shut, was a real fire hazard. Other measures were taken however, fire alarms, fire escape ladder and an extinguisher. The windows downstairs were a real worry though, perhaps replace them with a locking system? There were cracks in several of the bedroom windows, the windows did not shut properly and upon trying to close the windows, I cut both of my arms. However, it was not all bad. There were many perks to the property - including fast operating wifi throughout the house, a real bonus in the evening/lazy afternoons. The access to lovefilm/netflix was good too and on two of the nights we stayed, wednesday and friday, we stayed in and played monopoly, with a party type tea and watched movies! The upstairs family room was nice, both beds were very comfortable (especially the double) and the selection of videos was good (pokemon especially!) Most of the other beds were comfortable too. TVs were in the main two bedrooms, the third bedroom was small and inconveniently placed by the main family bathroom. Perhaps a switch around with the upstairs living room + the third bedroom would be better? The property had a cellar, the light was slightly faulty and there was a bath and sink through a door, it was good to have a spare bathroom. The cellar was rather dingy, the floor was wet and peeling. Although the washing machine and tumble dryer were good! As well as the wide range of beach gear - surfing suits, a tent, beach chairs, wind breaks, body boards, lilos and rubber rings! There was also a selection of beach toys, - skittles, frispee, beach tennis kit. This was a nice added touch. The photos featured on the website really didn't show the property off too well. The kitchen has yet been refurbished to a decent standard, the upstairs living room is quite the asset as well as the family bedroom. The main family room is a bit of a throwback to the 1970's but was in good working order and was clean! Towels and beach towels were supplied too, which is a bonus as not many properties offer this! Overall, we had a pleasant stay, the property accommodated 6 of us well. I wouldn't advise taking anymore than one dog with you though as the lack of secure patio area means you have to keep an eye on your dog/take him/her out to do his/her business, which, if you had three dogs with you, like us, can be a bit time consuming. I'd recommend this property as a great alternative to butlins/haven/pontins - the price is good, and you get what you pay for.
Owner's reply: Thanks for your mostly positive review. Just thought I'd better point out than even though the boiler is old it receives a yearly Gas Safety Certificate and is perfectly safe (just not very economical - but the heating/hot-water is all included in the bill :-). The kitchen window sash failed earlier in the year and until we can get it fixed we thought it best to seal it up - the kitchen is right next to the front door and there are no safety issues: it would be quicker to just leave by the front door than attempt to exit via the kitchen window. Thanks again for recognising the value provided by our property!
