A pub is a short walk away serving good food at a good price. The B&B is very good value and happy to recomend as a place to stay, also able... More

We found this little gem a few years ago whilst our daughter was at Uni in Swansea and we were so inspired that we stayed each time we needed a bed in the Swansea area. Its not a great drive through the village but the road toward Island House is delightful and its a great place to spot some unusual... More

This is very well run B&B. We stayed three nights in the large family room (2 adults and 2 children). Excellent breakfast. Rooms and the shared bathroom were very clean. The area is very quiet. It is a perfect starting point to visit the Gower peninsula (by car). Our children enjoyed the swimming pool in the garden! I can strongly... More

The town where the Island b&b is located is probably not the prettiest in Wales but the spot is definitely the prettiest in the town. Gordon & Viv are certainly original people but very welcoming and we really enjoyed the bbq next to the pool with them and the other residents. I'll only object that, according to the price, the...

Maybe the best vacation I've ever had. Such a wonderful experience. I stayed for close to week at island house. Gordon and Viv was so warm and inviting. The rooms are very private and well equipped and furnished. I had a beautiful view if the park right beside the house. I recommend to all. It's a short walk to the... More

My husband and I have just had a wonderful, relaxing weekend staying at Island House, B&B in swansea. The B&B was set in a lovely location and was so quiet and peaceful. Located near the gower penisular. Our room was very clean, and our bed was very comfortable! And our breakfast in the morning was really tasty and plentiful. Gordon... More

I stayed for two nights with a friend in order to enjoy a walking weekend. We booked the family room (charged for two people only) as the twin wasn't available, so we found that we had plenty of space and felt very comfortable. Viv and Gordon went out of their way to be helpful (printing off walking routes etc.), and... More

Stayed for 2 nights in the family room. Gordon and Viv were very welcoming. Breakfast was good. It was just what we were looking for and will go again. We visit this part of Wales quite often so glad we found Island House

Being neither Christian nor interested in the revivalist movement, staying at Island House was an experience to say the least. The breakfast room was dark and the walls were covered with religious memorabilia - including a very strange poster of other revivalists that had brought apparently brought hundreds of children back from the dead - and we are talking in...

We loved this place. We found a little gem here. Great value, delicious breakfast. The bacon and sausages were very high quality (my husband is a chef and he devoured every bite) Gordon and viv are so lovely and friendly we really enjoyed their company. The hot tub was bliss and the pool refreshing. The room and house are so... More

It was a pleasure to be able to provide you with a well deserved break from your own pub and kitchen. So glad you were able to relax and enjoy. Many thanks for your kind comments especially as you are in the hospitality business yourselves. Look forward to seeing you again soon. (Bring the sunshine with you again too) More
