I have to say as a Platinum member I was recognised and greeted with an option of a free drink and snack or points. Rhys who was the staff at the front desk provided very good customer service in regards to recommendations of place to visit and eat. Good hotel with great staff and located ideally if you have a...

Conveniently located for Swansea (we were visiting the University open day), this is a typical Holiday Inn Express, which is no bad thing. Friendly, helpful and courteous staff, a swift check-in process and rooms up to the normal quality. Despite proximity of the motorway, we weren't aware of any traffic noise or even other guests. Free wifi was excellent and... More

We stayed in order to visit my elderly mother. We were welcomed well and enjoyed a nice meal in the restaurant. Staff were courteous and attentive, without exception. On departure the staff member on reception asked after my mother. I liked this hotel.

My wife and I would have no hesitation in recommending others to this hotel. It is outside Swansea centre which, given the appalling state of roads in that city is a big advantage. The staff were delightful, helpful and efficient. The accommodations have been recently renovated and are excellent. It was, as they say, exactly what it said on the... More

... be aware, there is no air conditioning, just a fan and the hotel is right next to the M4, so leaving the window open will entail road noise. It was a bit stuffy in late May. Next to a Harvester (basically an Applebee's in UK). Beds were small, but room size was not too bad. Did not seem like... More
