The many flaws of this hotel would not matter much for an overnight stay but we stayed for four nights and they really did matter for that length of time. The worst thing was that for nearly the entire stay we were unable to get internet in our second-floor room and sometimes couldn't even get it downstairs. We told staff... More

Overpriced but in a good location. The rooms were clean but basic. The breakfast was good. Ok if you don't want an early night, especially on a weekend stay as live music in the bar was loud in our room.

If you are looking for a cheap, clean bed to collapse into after a great Welsh mountain walk I can recommend The Swan. The room was plenty big enough for all our kit and the shower was clean and hot. It's a lively place but solidly built so on the 2nd floor we couldn't hear a thing. The staff were... More

Arrived with a small party of 10 and picked the restaurant at random. We were made very welcome and the room was light and airy with nice chairs and table cloths. The staff were very attentive and friendly and our meals arrived quite quickly. The food was hot but the plates had not been warmed up. However it did not... More

My parents and I booked two rooms at this inn in Abergavenny for three nights (the first night was a Saturday). My parents were given the larger room on the first floor (no elevators). Unfortunately, when we returned to the Inn after dinner, the pub (on the ground floor) had live music playing. The music was so loud, the floor... More

I stayed at the Swan on the night of the 13th March having cycled from South Gloucester. The gentleman who booked me in showed me to a garage where I could store my bicycle overnight and also offered to hang my wet gear in the boiler room. The room was a nice size and the bed very comfy indeed. The... More

Family run hotel. Located in town centre near bus and train stations. Music on a saturday night with a variety of singers in the public bar. Nice friendly atmosphere, although can be a bit snug on occasions. Tidy beer. Always feel welcome.
