As you find it today, Penally Abbey is a true labour of love for the Boissevain family. Husband and wife team Lucas and Melanie Boissevain work closely with two of their three children, Saskia and Jacques to create this 12 bedrooms, boutique hotel and restaurant by the sea in Pembrokeshire.
Falling for the charming 18th Century property in 2014, they saw a definite niche for a small, intimate luxury hotel and top quality restaurant to serve Tenby and the beautiful surrounding area.
An interior designer by profession, it was Melanie's task to give the hotel's unique interior spaces and guest rooms an inspired new lease of life. Introducing cool, elegant lighting and colour schemes, helped by a wealth of character features and carefully selected furnishings.
The hotel is based around three fundamentals; warm, welcoming and friendly service, good food and wine and comfy bedrooms. The Boissevain's wanted Penally Abbey to feel like staying with family friends or in a large B&B.
