  • "This complex is ideally situated for walking to and from the nearby harbour and beach - but is also very quiet and peaceful."

    We have made a cpl of small suggestions for improvement direct with the owners (who seem very nice and approachable) and they have assured us these will be taken onboard. We are in awe of what they have achieved here in such a short space of time - converting a hotel into several apartments. The apartments would benefit from a couple of supportive/higher chairs in the lounge (for older people) and a better quilt on the main bed - but nothing spoiled our holiday and given that I suffer with my back I did find the mattress very comfortable and supportive. We had a fabulous time and have already booked to go back next year - this time trying a ground floor apartment with an outside area within the same complex. Overall we really cannot fault it and would thoroughly recommend it!

  • "We stayed at South beach Hideaway last year which was really enjoyable, North beach was just as good but a lot bigger, the apartments are spotlessly clean, really well-equipped kitchen and bathrooms, everything you need for a relaxing break, and a real bonus is being able to leave the car safely behind and instead be able to have a gentle stroll into town and enjoy everything that Tenby offers, for as long as you want, without the fear of a parking ticket."

    Gareth, Emily and the staff deserve a big thank you for The Hideaway, We’ve already booked for next year and are very much looking forward to it already.

  • "Perfect location."

    An easy walk into town, close to takeaways, restaurants, station & supermarket. Parking is easy. There is an handy bench outside for changing boots! Apartment is well maintained, very clean, spacious and comfortable. Bedrooms are on the ground floor, we found they got a bit chilly but you can adjust the radiators to heat the rooms if needed. Bathrooms are really nice with excellent showers. Towels a bit small and I was glad I bought extras from home. I would also bring a blanket if coming again in chilly weather. Living area and kitchen are lovely. Kitchen well equipped (just could have done with a colander for cooking pasta!). Dishwasher tablets, washing up liquids, kitchen roll provided. You just need to bring loo roll. We didn’t use washing machine but there was washing powder provided too. Nice large fridge freezer. Check in time was a little late and we felt check out time was a bit early. No facilities for recycling. Area was very peaceful and quiet. Overall an absolutely lovely place to stay - we wish we could have stayed longer, and I would definitely use this accommodation again when visiting the area.

  • "We couldn’t really fault the accommodation, we previously stayed next door in the Southbeach hideaway, but this was twice as large."

    The only thing wrong was the oven wasn’t working as the previous guests hadn’t let the owners know, so we could only use the hob and microwave for cooking . Also the heating is very efficient so we had to turn the radiators down or off as we aren’t used to the warmth settings.

    But that wouldn’t be fair. This place is an absolute gem and we had the most amazing stay. The owners were so helpful and accommodating and thank you for the milk in the fridge (as well as all the other lovely thoughtful touches) - we were very pleased to have a cuppa!

    The property is spacious, clean, comfortable and well equipped. It's less than a 10 min easy walk from the beach, town, shops and restaurants with parking on site. The beds are comfy and the showers work. Communication with the owners was easy and they responded quickly to a very minor problem with the shower. Whats not to like? We will be back!

  • "It’s a lovely property!"

    The bedrooms downstairs remain lovely and cool on those hot days. The facilities were perfect for us. The TV and wifi meant that the kids could chill out in front of their films after a busy day at the beach. The kitchen provides everything you need for self-catering (even a steal to sharpen the knives!). There is a co-op 2 minutes away which was very handy indeed. The proximity to the beach is a real positive with two kids in tow (a short 5 minute walk to North beach and 10 minutes to castle beach). The parking worked out really well with the reserved space and it was always quiet. Thank you for finding and sending on my daughters phone that she left behind! We will definitely return to Tenby and most likely will book at the hideaway again.

There were a couple of minor issues during our stay which we raised with the owner and they were attended to very promptly. I left feedback on the comments sheet before leaving and received an email the following day addressing these. I would be very happy to return to this holiday home, the town of Tenby and the magnificent Pembrokeshire coast.

  • "Quite dirty."

    Settee was filthy and had to be cleaned. Shortage of eggcup between 4 people! 3 mugs! 3 soup bowls! Fanlight windows couldn't be opened but we're filthy too. Had to ask for chopping board! Both showers had fittings broken. Thick dust behind doors and on mirrors. Extra time was supposed to have been allowed for cleaning! Obviously not. Terrible green fire escape light in main bedroom which kept us awake. Would definitely not return.

    Many thanks for your feedback which we take very seriously as we do our very best to ensure a great stay for all of our guests and are always on hand to assist if anything goes wrong. We have replaced the egg cups and provided you with a chopping board during your stay. The settee was clean, but did have some old stains a new sofa suite will arrive shortly. Unfortunately the previous guests to you, broke the trim on the shower door which is why a shower curtain was fitted whilst the new door is on order. The velux windows dont open but there are 3 large bay windows a lot bigger than the velux windows that can be opened fully. We have checked and feel there are sufficient bowls and mugs and I am unsure where you found thick dust behind doors and mirrors as we fully inspected the morning of your arrival. Property Owner

    Warm and bright. Easy walk to the sea and town. Useful to have a car parking space. Only slight problem was the light in the main room at night, the green light over the fire escape was very amplified at night but bearable; however next door left their outside light on all the first night and that was very bright with the light creeping around the edge of the blind. Blackout blind and / or curtain would have helped. Owners very helpful when we left a laptop behind - it was exactly the same shape and slate grey as the placemats so got overlooked !

    Now the place you stay has an enormous impact on your experience. On arrival we were astounded at the size, cleanliness and facilities on offer at the property. The location felt safe and was ideal being less than five minutes from both the north beach and the small seaside harbour of Tenby. The north beach is one of the cleanest I’ve ever visited. The property is very well equipped and ideal for either couples or a family of four with each bedroom having its own bathroom. Even during these unprecedented times and despite the COVID-19 restrictions, we still had a wonderful break. The owners are easy to contact and very helpful. Location, location, location means everything and when we visit Tenby again the Hideaway will be our first choice of accommodation.

Leading off the light and airy hallway, the two bedrooms on the ground floor both offer ensuite facilities.

The twin room has an ensuite shower room.

Up the carpeted stairs you find yourself in the L shaped, sunlit sitting room with a comfy corner sofa beckoning you to sit a while in front of the TV, 2 armchairs to maybe sit with your morning coffee and the dining table for your family meals and the very well equipped kitchen where the cook needn't be on their own as the window seat is ideal for some company.

The Hideaway

The Hideaway is exactly as its’ name indicates – hidden away from the bustle of the town and yet a short stroll to all the town has to offer - three exquisite beaches, boat trips to Caldey Island, the historic town walls, cobbled streets with quaint gift shops, eating places, pubs and the famous coast path. The complex consists of six serviced apartments. With hints of the seaside they have their own private entrances and are equally delightful booked individually and are perfect for a group of friends together as they offer a variety of styles and sleeping arrangements. The added bonus is the off road parking, park the car up and stroll into town for lazy days on the beach, have afternoon tea and then stroll back to your welcoming holiday apartment. Of course you may wish to explore a little further and from these charming holiday apartments short drives will open up exciting and varied days out. Action packed days at Oakwood Theme Park, Heatherton, The Dinosaur Park or The Welsh Zoo will tire out the children. Relaxing days strolling round the historic castles or the magnificent St Davids Cathedral may appeal or find the hidden St Govans Chapel at the bottom of the rocks. Glorious days out for all to enjoy.
