  • "Lovely kept and very clean."

    Would like a more comfortable settee and a fan for the bedroom would have been lovely for the hot weather but other than that a great accommodation. We will certainly book again.

  • "Our second stay at the Mushroom House."

    It is very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The kitchen has been upgraded since our last stay and is very smart. The kitchen has all you need (except a bread Knife?) and it was nice to have milk, Welshcakes and tea, coffee and sugar on arrival. There is plenty of room for two people, the shower is excellent and the small seating area outside is pleasant after a day out, also the area inside by the entrance door. The property is inside what was an old walled garden, shared with some residential properties and is very quiet and private, with its own parking - gold dust in Tenby. There are two steps up to the patio and front door. It is a 5 minute (uphill) walk to the North beach and about 200 level metres to a small, well stocked, Co-op shop in the other direction. We didn’t need to use Sainsbury’s. We had only light footfall noise from upstairs. There is very good WiFi and we loved the password on the big stone, we might keep ours on one! As other people have commented, it would be nice to have instructions for the appliances (we Googled the dishwasher!) and, also, if we were responsible for putting the correct recycling things out when the neighbours did (there are very adequate boxes in the property for all recycling). We met the owner on our last day and would definitely stay here again.

  • "A clean and spacious apartment, ideally situated in Tenby with only a short walk to the beach and town centre."

    The main negative comment would be the noise from the family staying in the above apartment. They were not doing anything that I would say was noisy apart from walking about like anyone would, but every footstep seemed so loud to the point that there was no point in going to bed until they did, and it was time to get up when they did. Probably made worse because they had a toddler that seemed to run about up there constantly, as toddlers do. Apart from that I thought the microwave was positioned high to the point that it would be difficult to use if you were short in height yourself. Apart from the above mentioned negatives I enjoyed my stay, and loved Tenby.

  • "A beautiful, ideally situated and well equipped property."

    Such an advantage to be able to park directly outside with less than a ten minute walk to North Beach. A variety of walks available direct from the door and other attractions close by include National Trust areas of beauty, Caldey Island and many more. Thoughtful facilities such as reading lights in the bedroom and an area dedicated to storing outdoor clothes and shoes with a chair provided to sit on for comfort. The recycling system was very sophisticated. The settee did not suit us but soft furnishing are always a personal taste. I certainly would recommend this property to anyone visiting Tenby.

  • "The pillows were to hard for me a personal thing."

    No instructions on cooker heating system etc are always helpful. We could not locate the outside green caddy for rubbish, apparently we were not the first to ask its whereabouts. No sweeping brush or vac cleaner. All are very minor points, on the plus side, carparking available a plus in Tenby, location was very quiet and only a short walk to all the amenities in Tenby. We enjoyed our stay very much.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our Autumn get-away in Tenby."

    The Mushroom House is in a great location for beautiful beaches, restaurants and town. Not only did we enjoy staying in Tenby but plenty of easy places to get to and visit. The Mushroom House was exceptionally clean, comfortable bed and well equipped. Parking was a bonus. The owners were very kind in leaving us some milk and Welsh Cakes - a thoughtful welcome to Wales. We would certainly go back there.

    Just having somewhere to park the car was an added bonus. My only gripe would the lounge chair and sofa weren't very comfortable to relax in at the end of a busy day out! Other than that, well pleased with our stay. We even got fresh towels half way through the week on request. Thanks

  • "A fan for the hot days would have been nice."

    There wasn't anything to clean around the bathroom after a shower or bath. The kitchen also needs more in the way of cloths for cleaning. Disappointed with the outlook outside the Mushroom house, didn't have the holiday feel to it for us. Didn't find the directions to the cottage very helpful, the road and cul-de-sac has no road signs to say where you are.

  • "Worn furnishings including saggy mattress, some sofa cushions stained, kitchen clean, main issue was flat upstairs, noisy tv and music and sounded like hobnailed elephants were walking across the floor."

    Many thanks for your feedback. I pride myself on maintaining my properties and replace furnishings regularly and I can see no worn furnishings. The mattress was replaced with a high quality item during my maintenance programme carried out during the first lockdown, but mattresses are personal preference. I will check the cushions for stains and inform housekeeping to be extra vigilant. I undertook a substantial sound reduction installation some years ago which in the main is sufficient. I can only apologise if the guests in the above property were less than considerate. I always reassure guests that I am available at anytime on my mobile and encourage them to contact me for any issues. It is unfortunate that the guests didn't make contact to allow me to address problems at the time which I am all too happy to do. Property Owner

  • "Great place for a week's stay exploring the area and hiking the Pembrokeshire coast."

    The property was clean and comfortable with a good layout. The kitchen was great with a dishwasher, washing machine, cooker, microwave, etc. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom clean with lots of hot water. Wifi was excellent, very fast. We were very impressed with the overall standard and cleanliness of the accommodation and would not hesitate in using it again. Excellent restaurants in Tenby (not so good in Saundersfoot) The Plantagenet was brilliant and the delivery service and quality from Tenby Fish & Chips were great. Lovely neighbours all round, especially next door with the friendly Staffy. The local butchers (Copper Hog) was amazing (Tomahawk Beef, leg of lamb, all great and their homemade Lasagna was superb). The local pub (Evergreen) a few yards away was friendly and comfortable. All in all 10/10

We met the family - lovely people, all of us were aware of noise issue. We heard every muffled footstep, conversation TV and so on.

    The location was perfect, it was just a short walk to the beach. The house was lovely and clean and well thought out. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The owner was very accommodating and let us park our car early. I would advise reading the owner's directions on getting to the property as not all the streets seem to have signs. However we found the house easily with the directions given. I hope to visit Tenby again in the future and would certainly stay in The Mushroom House again.

    There was no visitors book either in which to leave comments on the holiday and recommendations for future guests - again this is something we have always had in other properties and it is very useful to read previous visitors comments and recommendations re places to visit, restaurants etc. 2 minor items but they would have made a difference for us. We did find a lot of tourist info leaflets in a drawer but many of these were out of date or duplicated. Having said this we found the apartment to be very comfortable and in a great location, close to the town and harbour area. The private parking area was also appreciated. We would definitely stay here again if coming back to Tenby and have already recommended it to friends, family and colleagues.
